The outgoing government does not want to solve problems.
Our authorities are fighting not only against "external" democracy but also inside the country - against everything that still moves and generates income. In principle, everything is logical and predictable: the aggressiveness of incapacitated regimes grows as problems and failures grow inside the country. It seems that this allows you to write off all the troubles of the country, which the regime created itself. But will the war write off everything? After all, the result of war, no matter how long and destructive it may be, there still will be peace, according to Aristotle. The goal of war is peace that would be better than the pre-war, Basil Liddell Garth expands his concept. When the wars began, that's what they at least hoped for. Why start a war for the deliberate deterioration of your situation? But this is exactly what our regime does.
For him, a war with the entire civilized world and most of his own citizens is definitely a worsening of the situation, even if the leader's chair can be retained. Moreover, the deterioration of the situation can be seen across all "vectors" without exception. But despite everything, they stubbornly and persistently aggravate the situation.
Today, many do not seem to understand that wars are not fought just for the sake of wars, their goal is still peace. But war is most often a loss, especially in our time. And it doesn't really matter if it is "hot" or "cold." In other words, the initiator of the war first loses and only then begins to fight. Hitler, for example, lost at first: his foreign and domestic policy collapsed. And then he began to fight in order to rectify the situation by force.
The situation is similar to Putin. It is already almost obvious that, in historical terms, he lost. The system he created turned out to be unable to ensure the rapid development of the country, even in the catch-up register. Accordingly, it was unable to provide a decent standard of living for citizens, moreover, it is falling. And those willing to voluntarily join the "Russian world" are almost gone. All that remains is to try to prove your "innocence" with the help of war or its threat.
What about our regime? The system finally proved its non-competitiveness, lost to more modern and dynamically developing systems. Moreover, it lost even within the country - to the segments of the new economy. All that remains is to maintain the status quo with the help of a “war against everyone,” and first of all, against the citizens of their country. But how long will there be enough strength to fight against everyone?
The problems that caused the war were not born of it. On the contrary, war is a product of some fundamental problems. And without their solution, even with a formal victory, the country will not achieve success. Germany and Japan lost the war but got down to solving their problems and achieved success. The USSR won the war, but even during the lifetime of many witnesses of the victory, it disappeared because it did not cope with the solution of its problems, and did not really try to solve them. Gorbachev did try, but it was too late.
Our regime also does not solve the country's problems and does not even try. Therefore, it is not so important whether he can resist, drive the dissatisfied into the kitchen for a while. The most interesting thing is that the problems will still have to be solved - they will not go anywhere, and the war will not write off anything. The new government nevertheless solved the problems of Germany after Hitler, which means that they could be solved without a war. The war did not give the Germans anything good, it only took away. So it is with us: a war against the people and civilization will not write off anything, it will not give anything, it will only take away. But the problems will remain, and their list will expand - they will have to be solved by someone. Although most likely, this will be a new government, the outgoing government does not want to do this at all.
Often, having fought up enough, people and authorities acquire a greater desire to solve problems rationally. But this happens after the war, and usually, new leaders do it.
