1. It doesn't matter

Putin has his guards protecting him, at least for now.

2. The Russian army is large. They have 900k troops. 12,500 tanks and around 30k armored vehicles.

5. These are protecting Russian cities



Besides, Russia has 900k-1million active duty and another 2 million in reserve total. Last estimate I saw was up to 200k troops in or around Ukraine currently. Putin could double that and they would still have half a million active duty troops stationed elsewhere throughout Russia
