Russian nationalist Alexander Dugin has been attracting huge attention with his controversial statements, fearlessly expressing his views on the war in Ukraine. Candid and with clear opinions, Alexander believes that Russians must adopt a different approach to this war, advocating for the militarization of the entire country to achieve absolute victory.

In a commentary for the RIA-Novosti agency, he emphasized that Russia's ultimate goal is still unknown. His statements suggest that Dugin believes in Russia's victory on multiple fronts, not just in Ukraine.

"Militarization means transforming society to a military level. The extent and main directions of militarization can be discussed," Dugin wrote.

Dugin believes that without the militarization of society, Russians will face a difficult task in achieving their goals and potential defense. For him, this is the first step toward success. Dugin is known for having huge respect for the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, as his statements indicate.

"Militarizing society as part of leading a bloody war for historical survival is an absolute necessity that is pointless to debate," Dugin continued.

He expects the entire system to change, all with the aim of helping the Russian population, especially the younger generation, understand the importance of patriotism and love for their homeland. Dugin hopes for a shift in current values and the development of national identity.

"This requires the updating and broad application of traditional values, historical self-awareness, and vibrant and intense ideas about Russian identity," Dugin said.

Dugin stressed that Ukrainians' collaboration with European countries speaks volumes about Europe's intentions toward Russia. He sees this as a global conflict, with his main premise being that Russians must be ideologically motivated by sovereign patriotism!

What is particularly intriguing is his proposal to restore the special units of the Soviet military counter-intelligence service Smers. During the Second World War, these units were looking for traitors who were either tried or met a tragic end. This is just a confirmation of his rigid views.
