Putler's Disastrous Foreign Policy Move

Historically neutral Switzerland is edging closer to NATO.

Switzerland's fabled neutral status is about to face its biggest test in decades, with the defence ministry tilting closer to Western military powers in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
...
On a trip to Washington this week, Defence Minister Viola Amherd said Switzerland should work more closely with the U.S.-led military alliance, but not join it, Swiss media reported
.

Think of it: The Swiss see Russia as posing more of a threat to their country than did the Soviet Union or, for that matter, either the Kaiser or the Nazis.

With the complete breach in banking privacy that the US and the EU have forced on every other nation, Swiss neutrality is far less relevant than ever. Truly private, secure banking wasn't just a promise, it was the guarantor of that neutrality, because any nation that violated it found themselves cut off.
