I certainly would not opt for some "destruction of Russia", but merely deputinisation. And a non-violent one, with the role-model of the lustration
of East Germany, which was also non-lethal.
I can't speak for the Western allies, but the structure of the sanctions
speak for themselves: they appear to be targeted against Mr. Putin
and his closest oligarchs, not against the little (or should I say "common") Russian guy and people.
IMHO, there should be a some sort of Marshall plan for Russia after
Mr. Putin is defeated, with generous victors playing game to reconstruct, rather than destroy, much like West Germany after WW2.
