Not to be fear mongers but one would think Putin feels somewhat emboldened after public support from XI of China and will maybe escalate attacks with more insidious weapons further (chemical, biological) after this minor escalation in weapons from UK. Then again XI holds the cards in regards to 4300 mile border he shares with Russia as agreed proposed gas pipeline will flow thru Mongolia which Russia gangstered from China beginning of last century. Xi more powerful than Putin at this point and may see a leverage play while Putin distracted in Ukraine and military being punished and sanctions from the West hobbling Russian society to a point.Remember June 22 1941 when Hitler turned on Stalin. Wonder if Xi thinks he can pull it off here with help from the WEST? Is THAT the endgame?
