"Power in Russia is wild, built on eternal coercion. Any weakening of such pressure can cause the opposite effect," said Russian human rights activist and opposition politician Mark Feygin in an interview with Unian.

"That the whole point of life is to die, Dugin formulated it in an extreme form, in contrast to them and their reservations - a meaningful life, a transition from one state to another, as this fool Solovyov says. And this one said bluntly: the goal of a Russian person is to suffer and die, everything else does not deserve respect.

The rhetorical game will continue. But I repeat when they say: a war of attrition, attrition of what? After all, not only material, but also spiritual feelings are depleted. A long war dulls a lot of things, including this frenzied patriotism.

This patriotic feeling and enthusiasm are depleted. And Putin's words alone, his appeals, appeals to the Federal Assembly, and shouts at rallies will no longer be able to stimulate more strongly. Well, let him call it a patriotic war - let's mobilize even more. So, you have already mobilized and will continue. What will change? Can you give me a form? Will modern tanks appear instead of this junk? Or an aircraft of the 5th generation? Nothing will change.

I think Putin has exhausted the resource of stimulating the war through patriotic slogans and propaganda appeals. Even if the war goes to the territory of Russia, if they (the Ukrainians) really shell Moscow, it’s not by chance that they deploy air defense systems there, I rather believe that this will bring more fear than cause more enthusiasm.

Power in Russia is wild, built on eternal coercion. Any weakening of such pressure can cause the opposite effect.

There will be no such effect that “I must die”, such a dichotomy: “if I love the Motherland, I must die”. How many people are ready for her to choose favor of the second? To love - yes, please; to die - no."
