He took her to bed
According to NBC, US intelligence sources believe that Putin is feeling growing frustrated that the invasion did not go as planned.
NBC sources say there is no indication that Putin is mentally ill, but that the Russian president is behaving differently than before.
The channel writes that US intelligence claims that the Russian president approached many of his close associates in the latest outrage.
Corona infection is also said to have led Putin to isolate himself from the rest of the Kremlin.
Democrat Sen. Mark Warner told MSNBC: “This is a man who was clearly taken to bed by the scale of the Ukrainian opposition.”
Warner chairs the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee.
– He isolated himself. Warner says he has never been much in the Kremlin, believing that Putin gets his information from “yes-people” around him.
– Even more dangerous
Republican Senator Marco Rubio accepted Warner’s message on Twitter.
– We have not been in contact with Putin since 2008, Rubio writes on Twitter.

– No, according to international law, one cannot be a partner in a conflict by contributing weapons. But one can feel like a “co-enemy,” Cro Nistuen, an international legal expert who is the assistant director of the Norwegian human rights organization NIM, told VG on Tuesday.
– Following the decision to supply arms, Norway can no longer remain neutral. When one goes inside and gives intense support to a party in the form of arms, the neutral line is violated. It makes us a party. Mats Harlem, an international legal adviser and lawyer, said it was up to Russia how they would understand this later and whether they would now use international law if they chose to cross Norwegian national borders.
