Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that the West isn’t taking his country’s “red lines” seriously and the US and its allies could be about to sleepwalk into a dangerous conflict with the world’s largest nuclear power.
Red lines are about deterrence. The purpose of drawing them in the first place is to communicate crucial security interests and the severe consequences that would ensue if they were undermined. In essence, Moscow’s ultimatums are intended to stop the West from making a dangerous miscalculation.
Deterrence rests on the three Cs: capability, credibility, and communication. Russia has the military capability to act if its red lines are crossed, it’s demonstrated credibility in terms of its preparedness to act on threats, and it knows the specifics must be communicated clearly to avoid the West making any mis-steps that would necessitate a forceful response. However, the weakness in its red lines is the current lack of detail as to what would happen if another nation took a step too far.

Russia is making silly moves, helping USA during the energy crisis caused by Iranian hackers is an example of it.

Why are you helping your enemy in the first place while knowing the fact that they won't miss a chance against you?

Hard to understand. Russia could help Venezuela and Cuba to end their energy crisis but instead helps USA that in its nature doesn't need Russian help. USA has large oil reserves.

Russia is making fun of itself.

The most likely friction point is Ukraine but don't expect a sudden flare up.. Wait for the world economy to tank.. It will happen in the next 2-3 decades.. Once that friction point is open 100s of friction points will occur at the same time just days after that one is opened across the world but it will not open until the economy falls.. 2050s is the date to look for as the world economy will reach limit of growth

Agree. Putin is not ruthless enough. He still sees the US as a regime that can be reasoned with. When in fact the US is a hostile regime that is an existential threat not just to Russia but to the entire human race.
