If Russia doesn't collapse, its next war against Ukraine will be bloodier
Even a return to the 1991 borders will not be Ukraine's final victory
After all, the surviving Russian empire will next launch a full-scale offensive not with missile attacks on Ukrainian cities, but with a nuclear strike.
But our Western partners have fallen into a very interesting logical trap. For some reason, they perceive Russia not as an empire, but as a large state with many nationalities. One of our most important tasks is to tell the world that Russia is an empire, that it seized its current territories illegally, and that there is ethnic oppression there. If there is an opportunity to defeat the enemy not only on the frontline but also from within, we should take advantage of it. Perhaps, for a while, this will accelerate the collapse of Russia and, accordingly, the end of the war.
"Many Western politicians also do not understand that if the fighting ends but Russia retains its integrity, it means that the next, bloodier war will be just a matter of years away and will be more widespread."
In the Russians' view, it will be a simple logic: they tried "humanely" with missiles, but it didn't work, so they need a nuclear weapon. We are dealing with non-humans, not rational people. Accordingly, we have to inform the world that there are enslaved peoples. We have to cooperate with them and involve them in our army, to fight on our side.
I would very much like to see our armed forces or special services not just have battalions with a geographical name, but also by nationality. They partially exist, but it would be much more correct to form separate battalions of Yakuts, Buryats, and others. This will improve our situation at the front and at the same time show the world that the peoples of the Russian Federation are ready to fight for their independence.
