In his column for the conservative British magazine, Theodoracopulos recalled the Russian field marshal's tactics during the war against Napoleon, and suggested that in one important way, they were similar to Russian President "Uncle Vlad" Putin's air operation against the terrorists in Syria: both men sought to avoid the risks of getting bogged down, and both men succeeded.
