Actually I think Express Gazeta is really being unfair and ungrateful to France. The French are selling Russia two Mistral-class amphibious assault ship. These are the perfect instruments for a Russian invasion of Ukraine’s Black Sea coast, or the Baltic republics. Thanks to France, Putin will be able to attack by land and sea next time.

Note what is happening to Poland in these maps. This happened before, in the 18th century partitions of Poland by Russia, Prussia, and Austria.

So Germany and France, the two biggest powers in Continental Western Europe, are not really enthusiastic about serious steps to counter Putin. Given that, what can the USA do? Not much.
