- Dr. Patsy B Evans: Putin as an abusive lover; “take it all or burn it all”
- Said the Russians who are afraid of losing the war; fear that the United States will dictate the terms
- Said “we should expect anger. We should expect resistance” from the Russians
- Anonymous hacked into Metrospetstekhnik’s computer system
Few people know this, but Anonymous, the decentralized international activist and hacktivist collective that brought the war from Ukraine to the Russians inside Russia with its cyberattacks, has a licensed mental health counselor who uses her deep understanding of Russian society and ethics to accurately target its vulnerabilities.
Dr Patsy B Evans, known as DocAnon within the movement, however warned in an exclusive interview with the International business time that the Russians are as afraid of losing this war as the Ukrainians, and fear that the United States will dictate the terms to their country if they were to lose.
“We should expect anger. We should expect resistance,” she said of the Russians.
Evans used the “abusive lover” metaphor to describe Putin’s relationship with Ukraine, where Ukraine is the ex-wife who took the children, noting that “the most dangerous time for a partner leaving an aggressor is when he leaves the aggressor”.
She said the abuser has this resolve that “if he can’t have it, no one will.” Putin, she says, thinks he “has nothing to lose” and she fears the Russian president will “take it all or burn it”.
Dr. Evans specialized in clinical sexology and trauma, relationships, abuse and disaster relief, and grew up in West Germany in the 70s and 80s. Also known as Doctor Harmony, she says that the Russian population has four distinct demographic groups: Great Patriotic War Celebrants or Boomers; Generation X, who grew up fearing Russia and then saw the collapse of the Soviet Union; Millennials; and Generation Z.
The latter demographic, she says, experienced “relatively freer” modern Russia, but continues to be brought up on a steady dose of information about the Russian state that relies on overprogramming and robot trolls. . “So you have a patriotic nationalist generation, a traumatized generation, and two data-overdosing generations, and the only tools they have to find out the truth are what they get at home,” DocAnon explained via Twitter DMs. .
Despite the fact that the Iron Curtain ceased to exist in the 1990s when communist rule collapsed in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, Russian propaganda ensured that citizens remain indoctrinated into a collective belief that she wanted her people to subscribe to. Evans said that “Russia has always used state-sanctioned information and the general population mainly hears what comes from there.”
Russians, she said, “absolutely know that if Russia loses this war, their economy will resemble that of the Germans after World War II, where a loaf of bread would cost millions of Deutsche Marks.” Fundamentally, she says, Russians are also aware that the West, especially the United States, tends to participate in conflict and, after war, dictate how a country should be run.
“If Russia wins, the Russians think they’ll be better off. They’re as scared as the Ukrainians, and like us, their number one need revolves around their safety and security,” Evans explained. “I need everyone to know that when people fear for their safety and security, especially their children, they will be primal and their ability to reason will be limited. We should expect anger. We should expecting there will be resistance.”
While the trauma doctor believes Anonymous’ campaign to bring truth to Russians has slowly seeped through the cracks in the monolith of Russian belief, she says the hacktivist collective still has a long way to go. Evans remains optimistic, knowing that, as with “cold sales, the statistics are on their side.”
Still, in a nod to the limitations of the collective’s current efforts, Evans noted that having a Russian influencer to spread the message and the truth will go a long way.
A bit of background here: As part of its efforts to lead the fight against Putin, Anonymous created the 1920.in site, which allowed people outside the country to send messages to Russians. Launched by the Squad303 group, the site has since sent 70 million messages to half of Russia, aimed at combating government propaganda and telling Russians about the real facts of the war in Ukraine.
After sending more than 70 million messages in Russia on Saturday, Anonymous announced that those who wanted to participate could also send messages via Viber.
Anonymous continues to launch an avalanche of attacks on Russia, the hacking of government institutions, companies that choose to stay in the country, and even CCTVs and security cameras all over Russia. On Wednesday, GhostSec, a group associated with the hacktivist collective and movement, hacked into the computer system of Metrospetstekhnik, the metro service provider in Russia.
Currently, Russia has nine cities that operate metro systems.
