This will, subsequently, spur the people to pressure the government to stop the invasion.”
Assistance for Vladimir Putin across Russia stays really high, potentially in the variety of 60- 70%,” he said.
“This will remain so if he continues to manage the flow of information to his populace, enabling him to make the perversely false case that the war is an altruistic mission to shield individuals in Ukraine from genocide.”
In order to convince the Russian population, we require to locate means of straight communicating with them, Williams said, saying that people residing in Russia are “mainly entirely oblivious” of what is truly going on in Ukraine.
