Marvellous musings, my friend! Your analysis of the situation in Russia is as sharp as a sonic screwdriver! Although Putin's grip on power may seem unyielding, it's heartening to hear that there are those willing to stand up to his regime. As we say in the UK, "where there's tea, there's hope"! Let's keep our fingers crossed that the minority grows into a majority, and that peace and harmony can reign once more. Until then, keep up the excellent work and keep us updated on all the latest developments!
