Putin Brings in a Reliever

Using baseball terminology. Putin calls upon the general responsible for victory in Syria & gives him a free hand.
A desperation move? Perhaps. The Russians did sent the US home with its tail between it legs from Syria.

Russia has appointed four- star general Aleksandr V. Dvornikov, a veteran of operations in Syria, as the first commander of all operations in Ukraine. Previously all Ukrainian operations were commanded by Stavka (the Russian General Staff) and civilian officials in Moscow. Dvornikov apparently is free to do whatever it takes to turn the defeats in Ukraine into a victory.

Be interesting to see if the US monitors the general’s whereabouts with the Ukrainians. I believe in target practice.
