    Perhaps this will finally influence their support for the war.

    Too little too late. Some 300k (initially) of them will soon learn that staying silent up until now has its price, too.

    The "referendums" on joining Russia have started in the occupied regions, and the results will enable Russia to claim that Ukraine is attacking its territory. This will probably result in Russia officially declaring war. And they will need the manpower, so getting sent to die over there ASAP is an increasingly likely future prospect for many russian citizens.

    Not a good time to be a Russian squad leader. When everyone behind you would prefer to see you dead than to charge forward, it's not good for your health.

    That's what barrier troops are for.

    Russia doesn't have enough motivated troops to fight on the front line, let alone to sit in the rear.

    Oh, that problem has a simple fix - explain that if the second line doesn't push the first line forward, they themselves become the first line. There's your motivation.
