The opposition in Russia has been gutted of resources and is under constant threats from Putin’s regime, yet they are the best hope to end the authoritarian rule in Moscow.

Over the past weeks, many debates have taken place on the real state of the Russian opposition vis-a-vis the dictatorial rule of Vladimir Putin and what kind of alternative the current anti-Kremlin forces actually represents.

Editor’s Pick: Are the Russian Opposition Friends Or Foes of the West?

It is only realistic to acknowledge that it is not a substantial and very credible one now, but we should also properly understand why. However, what is not productive is to mock the current state of play inside since it is a loss for all of us, including, and most importantly, for Ukraine itself.
