Can this Kasparov "coup" tactic be adapted to work here?

Grandmaster Garry Kasparov Predicts 'Palace Coup' May Oust Putin Over Ukraine

“First, the Russian public and Russian elite, they have to recognize the war is lost,” he said. “The bad news coming from Ukraine will inspire more people to rise because economic hardship will increase.”

“So, military defeat in Ukraine, social-economic revolt and then you will have conditions, the right conditions, for a palace coup,” Kasparov predicted.

“Because many of Putin’s inner circle will be looking for a scapegoat and it’s always a dictator who should be blamed for all the failures.”

Putin knows losing the war on Ukraine “is not an option for him,” said Kasparov.

“It’s a matter of political survival and in many cases … of physical survival,” he added. “That’s why he has to pretend he is winning the war.”

TFG must become the big, fat scapegoat to the greedy wannabes.

3. Russia has not lost this war. Not even close.

They are focused on their goal now: Novorossiya. They'll pound SE Ukraine in to dust and empty it of people, Russian-speaker or not.

Taking Kyiv was going to be their less-violent method for forcing territorial concessions.

If it voted for Yanukovich, they'll try to annex it:
