The dysfunction now revolves around one man: Vladimir Putin. His will alone is driving the tanks that are crushing civilisation beneath their tracks as the rockets fly overhead. The Russian way of war has never worried about finesse. The doctrine is simple: overwhelming force and firepower is brought to bear on any opposition as huge mechanised columns roll forward, subsuming any opposition under their tracks until they've seized the enemy's vital point - the neural command networks.
