Vlad the Invader

Another famous Vlad.

Russian people want to know; What's all the fuss about?
All they ever did was help a fellow Russki out.
Russian troops on Ukraine's border aren't meant as a threat.
They have not annexed the East...  At least, they haven't yet.

Hitting them with sanctions will not make them back away;
It's a price the Russian people are prepared to pay.
That is how the situation looks to Russian eyes.
Putin's popularity at home is on the rise.

Even those who do not like him back his latest move.
Since the Soviet collapse they've felt the need to prove
They are still a major force that must be reckoned with.
They view Putin like some figure out of Slavic myth.

I can understand the way the Russian people feel;
Tales of former glories do have romantic appeal.
If, however, your side is the one that lost the fight,
Putin's actions in the region must be viewed with fright.
