Is Putin’s 5ft 7in “Napoleon complex” the real reason the tyrant invaded Ukraine and brought the world to the brink of World War III? – News 24 | News in France and abroad

Is Putins 5ft 7in Napoleon complex the real reason the

At 5ft 7in tall – three inches shorter than the average Russian – Vladimir Putin’s short stature could explain his manic behavior, experts say. The image-conscious Russian despot could join Napoleon, Hitler and Stalin as failed leaders whose short stature would have sparked bloody conflict in Europe. Experts say Vladimir Putin has a bad case … Read more
