Putin won't do shit in Europe atm. He is focused on the Middle East
1. He already is messing up Ukraine badly.
2. RF have been withdrawing fighters from Syria since March.
3. It's not just one man focusing things, it's committees and vedomstva, as they're called. on a psychologic scale it's quite easy. I doubt there's problem with resources, either.
But he'll use the Middle East as a gateway to Europe
biggest country of Europe, most populated country in Europe, holding 1/3 Europe's land and 1/7 its population
somehow can not get into Europe...
