Experts suggest that Vladimir Putin may be “removed” by his entourage.
Experts suggest that Vladimir Putin may be “removed” by his entourage. A mutiny in the Kremlin is indeed possible, however, there are other scenarios.
Oleksiy Garan, a professor of political science at the National University “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy”, said this in a comment to Channel 24.
According to Garan, perhaps there are more reasonable people in the Russian leadership who understand that it would be nice to end the war in Ukraine and somehow get out of it. First of all, such people should be among the business owners who are losing money.
However, as the professor noted, it is not known exactly what will happen next. However, a rebellion inside the Kremlin is theoretically quite possible.
“There are hawks around Putin, like Patrushev,” he said.
At the same time, it is likely that Vladimir Putin has surrounded himself with guards, so it will be impossible to “eliminate” him. In this case, Ukraine will have to live next to the Putin regime for some time.
The professor of political science also predicted what would happen if Putin still managed to be removed from power. According to him, there are also different possible scenarios here.
For example, a possible scenario for keeping the “hawks” in power – Putin’s current entourage. However, a more flexible scenario for the development of events in Russia is possible.
“We need to do our own thing. We cannot rely on Putin’s entourage and the intimidated Russian society,” he concluded.
Recall, as the head of Ukrainian military intelligence, Kirill Budanov, said, Putin has cancer and several other ailments . However, he may live for several more years.
