There are many Russians that are living in and outside Russia, many of these people are strongly opposing war. Though the Russian govt and military are being able to keep the voices silent, however, there might be an explosion soon. People who stay in Russia have their relatives in Ukraine and vice versa, even for the people who stay in Latvia or other neighbouring countries have their relatives in Russia and Ukraine. The cultural similarity between both the countries are making the civilian oppose the war. Once this voice of people will become loud, there will be a possibility of Civil protests.
