Will Russia's mobilization spark a revolution?
There will be no revolution in Russia. In order for a revolution to take place, there must be centers of influence. In underdeveloped countries, these are regional clans, in democratic countries - parties.
The Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine would not have taken place if there had not been a United Opposition of "Batkivshyna", "Udar" and "Svoboda".
The revolution was initiated by the youth, but organized, supported and financed by the parties and their supporters. Youth, students and activists without parties would walk the streets with flags to no avail, as in Belarus.
There are no real parties in Russia, no strong clans. National republics have a chance to start movements for independence, but this process is still in its infancy.
Therefore, a long and bloody war awaits us with these mobs of mobilized people led by the demonic dictator.
We need international support for democratic forces. Dictators and autocrats from Ayatollahs to Orban will support Putin.
And the Democrats will support us if we are a democracy.
The government, which does not understand the importance of democracy, the rule of law and finances stupid marathons with propaganda and Russians on the air, while money will be given to protect Europe with the valor of our army. And then they will stop.
Therefore, our task is to build effective civil institutions, courts, and parties. This is not an easy task for both the government and the opposition. Everyone needs to learn.
Our media and social networks create the illusion of a mass flight of Russians and a revolutionary situation in Russia. Many run away, but more go to the front, many go to protests, but more support Putin.
And so it will be until we and our democratic allies destroy the criminal Evil Empire.
