I made a personal decision that, during the course of the Russia-Ukraine war, I would refrain from posting opinions aside from one: That it is deeply important to understand both sides (or indeed, all sides) that are involved in this conflict. In fact, this conflict erupted, at least as far as President Putin believes (and…
