Specialists suggest that Vladimir Putin may be “removed” by his entourage. Rebellion in the Kremlinindeed, it is possible, however, there are other scenarios.
Professor of political science at the National University “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” Oleksiy Garan said this in a comment to Channel 24.
According to Garan, perhaps there are more sensible 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 business owners who are losing money.
However, as the professor noted, it is not known exactly what will happen next. However, a rebellion within the Kremlin is theoretically quite possible.
“There are hawks around Putin, such as Patrushev,” he is convinced.
At the same time, it is quite 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 did manage to be removed from power. According to him, there are also various possible scenarios here.
For example, a possible scenario of 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 that According to the head of Ukrainian military intelligence, Kirill Budanov, Putin has cancer and several other ailments. However, he may live for a few more years.
