New Intel Says Russian Public Turning Against War

Vladimir Putin’s days appear to be numbered…one way or another.

The aging Russian President’s health continues to deteriorate, according to sources within both the Kremlin and the Pentagon, as Putin battles what it believed to be terminal cancer of some variety and possibly Parkinson’s Disease as well.

But there is a new threat to Putin arriving on his doorstep:  A powerful shift in public opinion about his immoral and illegal war in Ukraine.

Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has claimed that Russian public support for the Ukraine war is “falling significantly” as it drags on and touches an increasing number of Russian families.

In its Sunday update on the course of the war, the Ministry of Defence said that “polling suggests that Russian public support for the ‘special military operation’ is falling significantly”, using Russia’s preferred term for its invasion of the former Soviet Socialist Republic, ostensibly in defence of its ethnic Russian minority.

To support this, the MoD cited an “independent Russian media outlet” which has “claimed access to data collected by Russia’s Federal Protective Service for internal use.”

The numbers didn’t lie.

“The data indicated 55 percent of Russians favour peace talks with Ukraine, with only 25 percent claiming to support continuing the conflict,” they added — although whether the Russians who favour peace would accept it on any terms was not elucidated.

Putin saw a number of heavy protests during the early days of the invasion, but those were swiftly quashed with the sort of brutality that we’ve come to expect from the Kremlin.
