Former state legislator Mike Jaros of Duluth wrote in a column in the News Tribune on March 19: “I believe Putin would like to rule the world — or at least the part of the world close to Russia. I hope he will not control or rule Ukraine, because if he succeeds there, he no doubt will probably want to also take Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Moldova, Romania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia” (Local View: “Putin doesn't want to conquer just Ukraine”).
