Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin on Russian losses in Ukraine, waning enthusiasm for the war and conflicts on the battlefield.

At the beginning of the war, many analysts in the West thought: if masses of Russian soldiers die at the front, then the Russians will stop supporting this war. Tens of thousands have died in Ukraine. But there is still no protest. Why not?

What can you tell from this?
