Mad Vlad Has Gone “All In”

In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö, who has a longstanding relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin,

discussed what he has learned about Putin over the years, and what is next for his war in Ukraine. President Niinistö said, “How I see it is in poker terms. He has pushed all in.”

President Niinistö has called it “…a cruel and unprovoked war,” and a blatant violation of the Charter of the United Nations.” In addition, Zakaria said he “called on members not to accept, condone, or normalize such aggression, and this was all before Putin’s nuclear comments.” (
