All of Russia's #MadVlad lies are finally catching up with him and history will wind up not judging him or his followers favorably.

Putin's invasion of Ukraine is not going well and apparently, his war plan does not have enough fans. In Kharkiv, the country’s second city, Ukrainian defenses appear to have repulsed a major assault.

Every drop of it will be splattered on Mr. Putin’s hands.
