“We haven't really started anything yet”

In July 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin proclaimed that the Russian military has yet to begin its real attack on Ukraine (link to article below). This claim comes after the failure of Russia to capture Ukraine in a short timespan, as was expected and promoted, and in the face of mounting Russian casualties and losses. Memes invoking this language will often superimpose the phrase over images of Russian defeat. Others will present Putin delivering such a message in an environment or context connected to Nazi Germany.
