Russians do not scare me, possible collapse of government does

I look at the whole mess that is happening around me and realize that we can lose

No, not primarily in the military context; it might be secondary, but rather in the institutional sense.

It's not the Russians that scare me anymore, because together we can defeat them.

I'm scared of a possible collapse of governance and decision-making, and I'm even scared of some of the decisions that are already being made.

I am scared of the political confrontations in which the Defense Forces are becoming entangled.

I am scared by the assault on democratic freedoms inside the country, but I am also frightened by the unconstructive actions of the opposition, which provides limited efforts to unite and predominantly engages in criticism.

I am scared by the purchase of ammunition at inflated prices in the face of limited supplies.

I find some satisfaction in the Telethon, specifically in the significant increase in Internet users in Ukraine and the decline in the number of TV users. However, it did not yield any additional benefits.

I am scared of the gradual loss of the unity of the nation.

Initially, this unity was due to the enemy's attack, but over time it began to melt away, because numerous stories of numerous victories reduced internal mobilization.

I am scared of the state of our society in general.

Because during wars, when the enemy is focused on achieving the goal, those who are not focused die.

This is how nations are lost.

This has happened many times in history.

And if the first, emotional stage of Unity is gone, then we must create a second, constructive one.

This was done in Israel. We can call it the National Military Committee or the Government of National Unity or the Intergalactic Assembly, but it is time for all pro-Ukrainian forces to sit down at the same table and start making decisions together and taking political responsibility together.

Otherwise, like the "white" emigration in Europe, we will write memoirs and hide from the "death groups" of the next Soviet ODPU.
