Regarding "Russian temperament":

That could almost be a word-for-word description of what is happening now. This isn't just a matter of one crazy dictator. There is something badly wrong with the Russian temperament, it's not just Putin.
I see the Russian temperament somewhat differently. I see it as a mirror of the American people during the Viet Nam war. "Hell No, We won't go." "Hey Hey, L B J, how many kids you kill today?" In Russia it is "нет войне" (No to War). Thousands of young American men went to Canada to avoid the draft just as draft eligible Russians are fleeing Russia. A perplexed Nixon mingled with demonstrators at the Lincoln Memorial in D.C. asking individuals "What do you want?" Nixon did not understand America's public attitude toward the Viet Nam war any more than Putin understands the Russian public attitude toward Putin's war.
