It would seem that Russia’s war goals were to ensure its total international isolation, a NATO expansion, and Ukraine reclaiming Crimea, Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said in a Twitter post on Sept. 10.

Specifically, Podolyak mused that – despite what Russia insists on during UN Security Council sessions – Moscow’s true objectives seem to be:

  • Dissolution of its puppet regimes in occupied Donbas;
  • Ukraine liberating Crimea;
  • A NATO expansion;
  • Losing the European natural gas market;
  • Russian economic collapse;

  • International isolation by a new “iron curtain.”

“Everything is going according to plan and ahead of schedule,” Podolyak said, taunting the Kremlin.
