If Russia is sending assassins to kill leading members Ukraine’s government, it would be right to consider that they might do the same against other western politicians who stand up to them. Russia has already assassinated two Russian exiles in the UK. It is a line they have already crossed. The danger of Putin sending his killers into western nations to commit murder is a serious concern.
The security services will have raised the protection level for politicians and diplomats to deter such actions but that will not be enough to prevent serious, determined attempts to commit murder.
While Russian tourists, businessmen and diplomats can move freely there is a high risk of assassins making such an attempt. With this in mind it must be time to stop all Russian personnel and associated agents from crossing our borders and reduce the number of ‘diplomats’ allowed to remain in the allied democracies.
There are ample reasons for such actions. Putin’s soldier have broken every norm and rule of war including, the murder of civilians, the murder of prisoners and the mutilation of soldier’s bodies. It is clear that he is playing a madman’s game of ‘Chicken’ and will do anything to invoke fear and hesitation into democratic leaders. It appears the Turkish Premier is currently the weakest spot in the armour.
Some might claim that it wouldn’t be fair on Russian people, to ban them from travelling and working. However, Russian people must be made to understand that Putin’s invasion will affect them personally and not just the poor people of Ukraine.
It is time to sanction all Russians by confining them within their own borders. They must understand there are consequences to all for invading other countries and supporting tyrants.
Sure, it’s not fair, – war isn’t about ‘fair’ it’s about victory!
