rumours are circulating that Putin is seriously ill. maybe he started this war because he suspected he was going to die soon and wanted to leave his mark on history before going out.

@thor Something I hadn’t considered: What happens if he dies in office? Is there a Russian VP? Is there a snap election? And of course, whoever it is will have to convene an emergency meeting about the war and everyone there will be in exactly the same boat of not wanting to be the first to say the war is batshit crazy and should be halted immediately and really hoping someone else says it first, at which point everyone in the meeting will be able to agree and breathe again.
