Putin had the idea of taking over Ukraine. However, his efforts have made two facts clear. He is a very bad general and the leader of Ukraine is very likely the best leader holding office on this earth these days.
If Putin should succeed at killing Zelenskyy, he might realize it to be his worst mistake. The man might die but his influence will far outlast Putin and any potential legacy he might have ever had.
Zelenskyy will be remembered for his courage and leadership. Putin will be remembered for his cowardice and ruthlessness, as with all bullies.
By the way. One more thing. Zelenskyy just might outlive Putin. I’m sure that would be just fine with most of us.
