Russians sing against the war at a concert in St. Petersburg

The backlash to the war in Ukraine has begun in Russia, where thousands of people have shouted condemnation at a concert.

In recordings from the St. Petersburg concert, revelers could be heard repeatedly chanting “f**k the war”.

It shows opposition to Vladimir Putin’s “military special operation,” which suggests the Russian president’s TV propaganda machine is failing.

The Kremlin authorities have tried to administer strict censorship of information about the war against Ukraine.

But anti-war protests and demonstrations have still erupted in the authoritarian nation, the reports express online.

The war has been widely reported on Russian state-controlled television since the invasion of Ukraine in February.

It was used as a propaganda machine with its content solely for the war, with the Russian authorities trying to justify military intervention.

The nation’s media claims suggest that Putin’s forces have invaded to liberate people trapped under corrupt, fascist rule.

Russian military journalist Mikhail Khodaryonok recently made several controversial statements about the Kremlin’s military performance in Ukraine on Russia One TV channel.

“The situation for us is definitely going to get worse,” he said.

“The biggest problem with our military and political situation is that we are in total geopolitical isolation and the whole world is against us, even though we don’t want to admit it.”

Mr Khodaryonok claimed Russia had failed to form any significant international alliances during the war and warned that the performance of Russian troops was declining.

The Russian military reporter reappeared on state-controlled television, dismissing many of his earlier claims of a weakened Russian front.

“I think that our armed forces have been given this goal and that it will be achieved in the near future,” he said.

Russian authorities have cracked down on anti-war demonstrations, as significant numbers of protesters were arrested in mass arrests following events in February and March.

Alongside the mass arrests, there were reports of police brutality against anti-war protesters as authorities rushed to silence objections to the Russian invasion.

Because of the censorship of Russian reporting, it is essentially impossible to detect any true sense of support or disapproval by the Russian nation for events in Ukraine.

However, it is estimated that thousands of Russian citizens have fled the country since the war broke out, and it is widely suspected that this is due to their political opposition and fear of Putin’s regime.

The former head of British intelligence said Putin will be gone soon and plans to send him to a sanatorium.

Sir Richard Dearlove told the One Decision Podcast that expert opinion in Russia may be starting to shift, which could indicate a shift in thinking.

“I don’t think public opinion in Russia is really changing yet, but I think experts’ opinions will gradually change,” he said.

He also speculated that we could reach “the end of this regime in Russia,” but “that doesn’t mean it’s going to go away.”

Sir Richard added: “What I’m saying about next year, 18 months maybe something, it’s going to fall apart.”
