Vladimir Vladimirovich, Tsar of All Russias, knows when to hold ’em and knows when to explode ’em!
Putin is just a BULLY. As a bully, he gets away with it as long as there is nobody to stand up to him.
He used energy during the winter months to club those that are dependent on his pipelines.
It is therefore ironic that the Southern pipeline isn’t going to be built. Just suffer the bully.
