The Emperor’s Candlesticks is a classic 1937 movie. The main characters name is Wilensky or Zelenskyy. Which reminds me of a thought. What if the war in Ukraine was an elaborate ploy to draw out and expose the military holdings of the west. Putin is a judo practitioner. Zelenskyy is an actor. This would be indicative of basic martial art strategy. Expose the enemies weaponry then use said weaponry/tactics against them.
