All eyes are on Russian President Vladimir Putin as the war in Ukraine continues. John Ciorciari, associate professor of public policy and director of the Ford School's International Policy Center and Weiser Diplomacy Center, said some in his inner circle are losing faith in him.

"(Putin has) shattered the myth (as a) grand chess master," Ciorciari said. "(He seems) quite isolated from his senior advisors and military leaders, a dangerous place to be."
