Well-known Ukrainian sports journalist Igor Linnik outlined the future that awaits those citizens of a non-country called "Russia" who position themselves as loyal to Ukraine and who are often called "good Russians".
“As I understand it, a very important message was sent to the Russian elites, including the opposition, using the “rain” as an example, which they are not yet ready to discuss publicly, being in some kind of shock.
What is its essence? If you, dear neutral or potentially good Russians, believe that after the defeat of the Russian Federation in this war unleashed by the Russian Federation itself, you will be able to claim sovereign control over what a Russian Federation subjected to all sorts of sanctions and embargoes will be, then you are greatly mistaken. And you are mistaken in vain - you will have to gradually realize and admit one unpleasant news.
Its essence is that the fate of what the Russian Federation will be after... It is no longer up to those who are ready to wait for the fall/defeat of the Putin regime without a fight.
The shares of the sovereignty of this territory will be determined by the winners of the Russian Federation. Yes, you may be asked to administer the implementation of their decisions - to those who will be ready to take on the proposed obligations.
The most penetrating elites of the Russian Federation, including the opposition, of course, must surely read such a message. But for them it is still too cruel, many are not ready to accept it right away. You need to wander with thoughts about it.
What choice do they have? They cannot but understand that they have driven themselves into this unenviable position. And the only way out is to start doing something significant.
Of course, there is not much faith in this, but nevertheless they are left with a chance. Otherwise, they tell them through the "rain", then no offense..." Linnik wrote on his social Facebook page.
