In a televised address from the Kremlin, Putin said Russia's very existence was under threat.

"We are fighting for the lives and security of our people, for our sovereignty and independence, for the right to remain Russia, a state with a thousand-year history," he said.

Time to see if they can take what they've been dishing out to the Ukraine. I bet not. As per usual in these cases, the country will split up into territories ruled by minor local warlords out for whatever they can get. Like some African states, the resulting civil war will last maybe decades, ruining the economy and infrastructure in the process. It couldn't happen to a more deserving country. smile.png

As said. "History tends to Repeat Itself" .
Having watched the Viking Invasion series. And somewhat familiar with the events of the Russian Revolution. Tsar v Lenin.
Fifth Colum. Agents Provocateurs and Betrayal. Change, the assumed Impossible.
Endgame.
Russian Military. [At Grass Roots] Intellectuals and Citizenry. Opposing Putin's Survival. Civil War & Revolution potential.
The more chaos/discontent within Russia itself.
The Greater, such distraction. The Greater opportunity, for Ukraine to regain its territory.

A military expert just said on TV that this might be the beginning of the end of the war.
Who will come out of the shadows to take a side in this development ?
Moscow : city services on high alert. Mayor of Moscow telling Muscovites to stay home. Anti terror measures imposed as Wagner accused of mutiny.

If Putin was toppled would Wagner's leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, be a better leader for Russia???? After all Putin was a military man and served in the secret service. It may well be out of the frying pan into the fire.........

Moscow braces for battle: Putin's soldiers batten down the hatches and build defences around the capital as they prepare for the arrival of Wagner militia forces, mind they seem to be having little trouble up the M4 so far, looks like Putin's demise is not too far away as there seems little fight in the Russian army ..

In this instance it’s a case of ‘ the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.
