Stunning new footage of war graves highlights the toll Vladimir Putin has inflicted on his fighters in Ukraine.
The Goryachiy Klyuch cemetery in the Krasnodar region is dedicated to troops in Wagner’s private army supporting the Russian invasion.
This force of volunteers, mercenaries, and prison convicts saw tens of thousands killed, locked in “human wave” suicide death squads and thrown onto the front lines with no hope of return.
Graves “too big to walk through” have been uncovered as veteran Russian political analyst Dmitry Oreshkin believes there are now clear signs that key players in the dictator’s circle are turning away from him, not wanting to drown in his “bloody swamp”. He leads his people into a “dead end”.

In this cemetery lie men whose relatives did not ask for burial in their home country. Many corpses lay unclaimed on the battlefield.
The comment on the video is by a crying Russian woman saying: “It’s a big cemetery, all the graves are new…
“There is no end in sight… There are young men and men of all ages.

She said it was “impossible to count” the graves.
Obviously, the number of graves is much more than in January.
She said, “My soul is bleeding.”

Another is the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, one of his closest allies so far.
“They understand that Putin is toxic,” he said.
Everyone is shoved into one bottleneck, and Vladimir Putin is the stopper in it.
The question is whether this bottle will explode under pressure from within, as was the case in the Soviet Union.
When Putin becomes toxic, that cork wears out a bit.
The problem is simple – which is more likely to happen: the cork will rot under the pressure of its acidic contents, or the bottle will explode?
The most intelligent person understands that it is necessary to part with him.
“They understand that the president is leading the country into a dead end.”
Putin has sought to court loyalists as support for his disastrous war in Ukraine wanes.
Earlier this month, Russia’s elite tank bridge reportedly refused orders after they were asked to drive to their deaths through a notorious Ukrainian minefield.
In February, Ukrainian intelligence reported that members of Putin’s inner circle were now spying on behalf of Ukraine as the situation worsened for Russia.
