In the interview, Hodges argued that the Russian government no longer has total unity or a vision for both the war against Ukraine and Russia itself.
“Alexander Dugin openly says that Putin needs to be killed. We see the North Caucasus and Kadyrov, who is anticipating Russia’s possible collapse and is trying to protect himself somehow. I absolutely don’t call for regime change in Russia – this is the choice for the Russian people to make, but we must understand that whoever comes after Putin will be much worse.”
Hodges suggested that leaders inside Russia might decide that losing the war in Ukraine is bad, but losing Russia is even worse.
