A Russian talk show guest has warned of a potential revolt in Russia and compared the country’s current state to the run-up to the 1917 revolution which toppled the Tzar.
The pundit told fellow panellists on state television that the Russian public needed to be prepared for a “long and difficult” war over Ukraine and warned that during World War I in 1916 the Tsar had mistakenly thought that public support for the conflict was endless.
The pundit said: “In August of 1914, Nikolai Alexandrovich Romanov also thought it was endless. He thought the war would end by Christmas.
“Everybody thought so, not one world war started as a world war. Everybody thought it would end quickly, by Christmas. They will march on Paris, we will march on Berlin.
He added: “They’re already preparing their society for a long war.
“A long difficult war that they intend to win. We should start preparing our society for a long difficult war.
“Not for a victory march, not for quick victories but precisely for a long difficult war.”
