hm .. not only that, he, somewhat, made a big joke of everything .. and of Russia.
yes disaster for families and life but - the "joke aspect" will probably last very long
(how to take "Russia" serious, from now on? yes, give them money later - help them not to starve; yes, help them re-build whatever, etc. .. but "serious"? that's really difficult. Every discussion, every aspect to talk about, will raise moments of "declaration of referendum" while the land was again lost .. will raise images of a brave comedian who did this movement with the lamp - remember Zelinsky? that was so cool .. etc. Laughing for the next decades when somebody murmurs a "dda". )
