Javed Ali, Newsweek: "(Putin) believes he has sufficient manpower, equipment, and financial resources to continue the fight until he achieves his goals. His statement about defending Russia's interests there and conjuring up the notions of patriotic duty harken back to World War II-era language used to promote unity and justify the sacrifices made at the expense of Nazi Germany's campaign against the Soviet Union."
