Russian President Vladimir Putin has succumbed to the illusion that the Russian army is one of the strongest.
This was stated by Czech President Milos Zeman on CNN Prima News.
According to Zeman, Russia is now acting surprisingly irrationally.

And a crazy person needs to be isolated,” he said. is he.
According to Zeman, Putin “succumbed to the illusion that Russia is omnipotent and that the Russian army is the second most powerful army in the world.”
“I think that each country defends its own national interests, but these interests are short-term and long-term. And the Russians – and I admit, to my surprise and the surprise of many other politicians – turned out to be completely irrational, unpredictable, more aggressive and less European than I thought,” he said.
The President of the Czech Republic also noted that his country is only partially ready for a possible cessation of gas supplies from Russia.
