Re: The proletariat
Putin is already facing general unrest due to his invasion of Ukraine. Contributing to this unrest is a good thing.
The unrest has been mitigated by throwing people into jail by the thousands. Because all (credible) opposition leaders were either jailed or murdered, there is no orchestrated effort for mass protests, and a small group or a single protester is easy pickings for the National Guard.
Majority of Russians support Putin in the latest polls. The actual numbers are of course not as high as reported because people are wary of saying wrong words.
I wouldn't hold my breath for any sort of unrest in Russia that would change the government. More likely an internal power struggle could cause a coup. Putin and his cadre's standard of living is unlikely to change but the oligarchs, officers and others can't just pop for a 5-star skiing holiday in Switzerland anymore.
