Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, I imagine politics in Russia will get pretty radicalized the more this continues with being publicly opposed to the war becoming increasingly risky. That's really one of the main reasons that I don't support the moralistic and as far as I can see aimless sanction policy. We're freezing the paypal of, and suspending academic collaboration with the people who were most likely to oppose the war. Not that public opposition against the war was likely to have immediate impact, but it's hard to see how the sanction regime does not solidify the Kremlin's story line of a Russia eternally besieged by western forces. It's certainly not going to lead to regime change, though the long term damage is going to be substantial.
