Russian literary critic Galina Yuzefovich expressed the opinion in a commentary to the publication that readers in the Russian Federation are trying to understand “what is happening with our country”, as the Russian media do not give an answer to this question.

Meanwhile, the German media, citing intelligence data, have already reported that representatives of Russian neo-Nazi organizations are fighting on the side of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
