Putin’s Master Plan
Vladimir Putin has a master plan to divide Europe, destroy NATO, reclaim Russian influence in the world, and most of all to marginalize the United States and the West in order to achieve regional hegemony and global power. Putin’s Master Plan is the first comprehensive attempt to systematically explain Putin’s global strategy that could inevitably and inexorably lead to the breakup of the NATO alliance and potentially to war with the West. Putin has made it clear that he sees NATO expansion as a fundamental threat to Russian nationhood, and he is systematically challenging the NATO alliance as well as the United States.
The West has no strategy, no plan, and no tactics to confront Putin’s master plan other than limited economic sanctions, which have done little to deter Putin’s aggression—and may well have encouraged and facilitated it. This is not just alarmism, but an accurate and for the first time clear, sober portrayal of a frightening situation that more and more serious observers of European and Russian politics are openly recognizing and acknowledging.
