From Putin's POV, the Ukrainian government invited this entire thing because they failed to fortify their defenses or demonstrate the resolve necessary to protect their borders.
Xiden's weakness was the final straw that broke the camel's back - the temptation was too much for Putin to resist - especially if a strong leader returns to the office of the POTUS soon.
That is why so many analysts see Xiden's demonstrations of weakness with/indifference to strategic issues as the trigger event for everything we are seeing in Ukraine and the bold, on-going flouting of human rights/rule of law plus the expansionism of the PRC.
