“”Russians who support junta in Kyiv are murderers without any emollient conditions. Accomplices and apologets of genocide. We should give them time to leave Russia. They can live in any country they want to including territory what will remain after Ukraine minus Kyiv. We should give them 3-4 month to do that. To leave with families, efforts, to learn basic language of new country… Russian patience had been buried in Odesa”.”
They will be frustrated by the resilience, heck, even the existence of Ukrainian identity. My sense is that they believe their own propaganda — that Ukrainians don’t really exist. I think they’re already frustrated by the lack of popular support in Donbass.
Now they have to choose between brutality or withdrawal.
