Discontent in Putin's entourage: what political consequences will leaving Kherson have

Russian society will have different attitudes towards the likely withdrawal of the occupying forces from the Right Bank of the Kherson region. There is a difference between how ordinary Russians and the so-called “elites” will react.

With recent decisions, the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, has relieved himself of responsibility for the situation in the war against Ukraine. Political strategist Mikhail Sheitelman told Channel 24 about this.

The expert noted that if Russia withdraws its troops from Kherson, then there will no panic among ordinary Russians > .

The Russians are an absolutely degraded people, calmly getting into buses and going to fight. They are unlikely to panic because they just don't know where Kherson, Ukraine is, right and left banks of the Dnieper. But this will entail great dissatisfaction in circles close to Putin – in the broadest sense, “in the elites,” the observer explained.

According to him, Putin, by his decisions, transferred responsibility from themselves against the heads of regions, which also entails tension.

“Putin said that now the heads of the regions are responsible for the security of their regions and for the war. Separately, he resigned from himself in charge of the logistics of this war. He said that Mishustin is creating a new security committee, and Surovikin is responsible for the situation at the front.” , – added the political strategist.
