Russians Ask Putin To Withdraw From Ukraine On Live TV

 Just watched Russia’s main political talk show with notorious propagandist Soloviev (Mar 9). Couldn’t believe my ears.

 Two hardcore pro-Putin guests – Shaknazarov and Bagdasarov – acknowledged the impact of sanctions, military failures, and called for an end to the invasion.

1/ Many Russian elites are dissatisfied with the war. But these two could not say it spontaneously. This show is pre-recorded and carefully orchestrated. This means that these discussions were approved and permitted.

2/ Shaknazarov acknowledged that the Ukrainian government has unified the country against Russia. Ukraine has a well-trained military forged by 8 years of war in Donbas. There is no way to install a pro-Russian government because nobody influential would agree to be in this role.

3/ At the same time, sanctions are taking effect and can change public opinion in Russia. It can lead to protests, destabilization, and regime change. Sanctions also lead to international isolation. The last allies of Russia – India, and China – will leave Russia.

4/ Russian army achieved its goals. Donbas is “liberated”. NATO only benefits from the protracted conflict. Shaknazarov called for an end to the “operation”.

5/ Another notorious guest of the program Bagdasarov said that sanctions are likely to be lifted from Iran soon. Iran oil will replace Russian oil. Other countries, such as Kazakhstan, are likely to trade with the West, not Russia. It can lead to full International isolation.

6/ The army destroyed the main Ukrainian forces and demoralized the government to achieve its goal. Russia cannot “denazify” Ukraine. It should be done by Ukrainians themselves. Russia should make Ukraine neutral but it cannot risk new Afghanistan. Stop the invasion.
