Two things convince me things are moving in the right direction:
R_P keeps chanting for the end of sanctions and
Putin starts screaming "I'm going to go NUKLEAR!"

Obviously something must be working.

btw.. a video is out of the actual telephone discussion between Macron and Putin before the invasion. 
Pretty clear which one of the two was acting in bad faith the whole time.

In reality...
When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, a major debate broke out over the contribution that the campaign of economic sanctions had made toward the fall of the Soviet empire. Many former officials in the Reagan administration credited sanctions with a significant role in the disintegration of the Soviet economy and therefore of the Soviet Union itself. On the other hand, the leading work on the effectiveness of economic sanctions—Hufbauer, Schott, and Elliott, Economic Sanctions Reconsidered (vol. 1, p. 137)—concludes that although the United States did succeed in denying some arms and key technologies to the Soviets, the collapse stemmed from internal inefficiencies rather than U.S. economic sanctions.

Snyder's breakdown of the Tucker interview

"..In the interview, and in other speeches during the war, Putin depends on a false distinction between natural nations and artificial nations. Natural nations have a right to exist, artificial ones do not.

But there are no natural nations. All nations are made. The Russia of tomorrow is made by the actions of Russians today. If Russians fight a lawless war of destruction in Ukraine, that makes them a different people than they might have been. This is more important than anything that happened centuries ago. When a nation is called "artificial," this is justification for genocide. Genocidal language does not refer to the past; it changes the future.

Everyone who does not fit Putin's neat story (Russia is eternal, so Russians can do whatever they want) has to be removed, first from the narrative of the past, and then from those counted as human in present. On Putin's logic, it does not matter what people believe or how people understand their own past. It is he who decides which souls are bound to which other souls. Other views have no place in nature, because they arose from events which (in his story) should never have happened. His view must govern the past, which requires violence in the present: genocide..."


A more detailed fact-check. Reason, BTW, defended Carlson for interviewing Putin but has...a few corrections to his piece.

gotta love twitter sometimes. This one is called Tucker Carlson's interview of Putin - Director's Cut

Tucker: So it was about the US? Putler: No. Let me explain. So it's the 8th century, right? And then Poland... Poland... Poland, Poland, Poland
