Russian president Vladimir Putin's scoreboard: he divided his nation and united the world; he introduced a new Cold War that will last for decades. He single-handedly inflicted pain and suffering on the people of Ukraine, the people of Russia and nations around the globe.

He has already cemented his place in history for all the wrong reasons.

He holds up a mirror for the world to look into his twisted mind.

Too many older men have brought pain and misery to the world because of their egos and a lust for power. We need more women and young leaders in world politics for a better balance.
