Sweden too.

Seems like these countries saw where Ukraine isn't a NATO partner and thus got invaded with no NATO help and now they think the only way they can stay afloat is to become NATO members.

Turkey will probably get some sanctions removed and be happy.

Russia seems to be backtracking a bit saying Finland joining isn't that bad.

Quote :
"
...
Pechorin is at least the ninth prominent Russian businessmen to have reportedly died by suicide or in unexplained accidents since late January, with six of them associated with Russia's two largest energy companies.

Four of those six were linked to the Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom or one of its subsidiaries, while the other two were associated with Lukoil, Russia's largest privately owned oil and gas company.

Earlier this year, the company took the unusual public stance of speaking out against Russia's war in Ukraine, calling for sympathy for the victims, and for the end of the conflict.
Lukoil's chairman Ravil Maganov died at the beginning of September after falling out of the window of a hospital in Moscow, according to Russian state news agency TASS."

Being a Russian executive sure is dangerous. Might be good policy to stay on the first floor of buildings and avoid stairs.

Last night's Putin speech and partial mobilization order have me a little nervous, but only a little. There's a lot of bad historical precedent when you put the words "Russia" and "mobilization" in the same sentence, for one thing. And the goal is clearly to ram through a plebiscite in the occupied parts of Ukraine to declare them "Russian" so that Russia can treat any future Ukrainian advances as an invasion and react with a much larger mobilization. The pretext is needed to satisfy Russian law, not because any other country is going to buy it - though honestly I wonder why Putin even bothers "satisfying Russian law" at this point.

The sense I get from Russia and military analysts at this point is that the extra 300,000 troops won't make a huge difference, particularly in the near term, but the mobilization order is vague enough that it could be expanded dramatically if the regime thinks they can get away with it domestically. Even that, though, might just be throwing more meat into the grinder. As always, the concern is that Putin, faced with imminent and humiliating defeat, ups the ante by dropping a tactical nuclear weapon - probably not on the battlefield or populated area, but somewhere like Snake Island, just to show, "This is where we're at now."

Conscripts without equipment (or the desire to fight) are as good as worthless.

I don't think he drops a nuke, there simply isn't any coming back from that. Russia will become even more of pariah state then they are now. China and India will want zero part of that.
