Documented and remembered.

Even the power mongering thug in russia cannot hide the truth now known abroad. His evil deeds will be taught across the globe world in the century which follow. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin will be remembered as murdering psychopath. Hi slippage will hide their identities in shame.

Even those claiming they did not know what russian crimes their actions or lack of actions beget (albeit they did), will feel the deserved societal kick in the pants that awaits their remaining purgatory on earth.

They will hide their identity when outside of russian knowing the distain that awaits them.

Ukrainian's in contrast will be welcomed and revered for the strength and perseverance they have shown in protecting their democracy.
