According to analysts, he is already openly preparing the Russians for the fact that a “special operation” in Ukraine can be a “long process”, and obtaining a new territory is a significant result for Russia.
ISW analysts also noted Putin’s remarks during a meeting of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (CHR), when he compared himself to the Russian Tsar Peter I and spoke openly about territorial achievements.
This recourse to Russian imperial history clearly describes Putin’s current goals in Ukraine as overtly imperialist and still maximalist, the ISW report says.
