There are millions of prooves of Russian war crimes in Ukraine.
And yet there are people here on LinkedIn saying that everything isn’t that clear. That Ukraine did this or did that.
These latent Russian supporters are as disgusting to me as the Russian invaders.
Because if they could they would do the same.
To their neighbors. To their colleagues. To those whom they envy for some reason.
But mark my word: when time passes, any association with Russia or Russian origin will be more and more repulsive.
I am truly sorry for that small number of people of Russian origin who condemn the Russian aggression in Ukraine and fight against it in any possible way (for example, there is an entire Russian battalion within the Ukrainian Armed Forces who helps our Army to kick the Russian invaders from our land), but this wave of hate will hit them too.
The more the war continues the more the world will see the true face of the Russian Federation and its monstrous and twisted ideology.
It will become more and more difficult for foreign businesses to play dumb and stay “neutral”. They will all eventually leave Russia.
It will become weirder and weirder for the politicians from democratic countries to keep a relationship with the country which genocides a neighbor country in real-time.
There will be a moment when this critical mass of the Russian war crimes in Ukraine will trigger global disgust and the word “russian” will become a mark of something bad and sinister.
I don’t see how this can be avoided at this point. So far, I don’t see any significant protest of the Russians against the war either in Russia or among the Russian expats. This is why it will be difficult to talk about “good Russians” in the future as well as difficult to talk about “good fascists” or “good nazis”.
Or, perhaps I am wrong and there is a very powerful Russian anti-war movement? Has anyone heard about it?
