WASHINGTON (AP) — More than two weeks into a war he expected to dominate in two days, Vladimir Putin is projecting anger, frustration at his military’s failures and a willingness to provoke further more violence and destruction in Ukraine, according to the assessment of US intelligence officials.
In recent days, officials have publicly said they fear the Russian president is escalating the conflict in an attempt to break Ukrainian resistance. Russia still holds overwhelming military advantages and can bomb the country for weeks more. And while the rest of the world reacts to the horrifying images of the war he started, Putin remains insulated from domestic pressure by what CIA Director William Burns called a “propaganda bubble”.
