Pointless visits – ex-KGB officer about Putin's “tours”
In recent days, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin allegedly visited the temporarily occupied Crimea and Mariupol, and then arrived in Rostov-on-Don. These visits were rather strange. In general, it is doubtful that it was the real Putin.
Sergey Zhirnov, an ex-employee of the KGB and the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia, told Channel 24 about this. According to him, the arrival in the Crimea and Mariupol can be called a “farewell” visit of Vladimir Putin's double.
Strange details from Putin's “tour”
As Zhirnov noted, all three visits showed absolutely nothing. During his visit to Crimea, the dictator allegedly visited a children's art school, where there were not a single child. This was followed by a night appearance in Mariupol, where he allegedly communicated with local residents. And from Rostov, not a single building was shown at all.
Imagine that this is the real Putin. What happened? In Sevastopol, he came to school and did nothing. Although they have the 9th anniversary of the annexation. In Mariupol, he walked around the yards. And in Rostov it is generally not clear what was there and why. From the point of view of the visit of the head of state, everything looked rather ridiculous, – Zhirnov noted.
He is sure that there was definitely a double of Putin in Sevastopol. The Russian dictator almost always keeps his right hand pressed to his body while walking. But then the double calmly waved it.

On the other hand, in Russian cities, preparations for Putin's visit begin several days in advance. There are massive security guards and no one is allowed anywhere.
As was the arrival in Buryatia, the cities were cleared 3 days before. During the day there were massive traffic jams, nothing went. When I was going to Volgograd, everyone stopped there. It was impossible to get through. And then, as if without warning, he arrived. Ridiculous, – said Zhirnov.
Putin arrived in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine: briefly
- On March 18, the Russian invaders celebrated 9 years of holding the so-called “referendum” in Crimea. The Russian dictator also visited the island.
- Already on the night of March 19, the Russian media began to tell that Putin also flew to Mariupol. He cynically walked around the ruins of the city.
- Political consultant Mikhail Sheitelman believes that after his arrival in the temporarily occupied territories, Vladimir Putin became a legitimate military target for Ukraine.
