Putin’s ‘epic miscalculation’ has ‘united the West more steadfastly against him’

ANU’s George Brandis says Russian President Vladimir Putin, through his “epic miscalculation”, has united the West more “steadfastly” and more forcefully against him.

He said the Russian invasion of Ukraine has “provoked” Sweden and Finland to join NATO.

“Something that was unthinkable even six months ago,” he told Sky News Australia.
