“Unfortunately, still alive”: German political scientist compared Putin to Hitler and called the signs of the collapse of Russia
Putin cannot stop, even despite the objective reality, objective failures and, probably, the understanding that he is “going into the abyss.”
Russia is on the path to disintegration, which was launched by the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, with a large-scale offensive against Ukraine on February 24, 2022. The process of disintegration continues inside Russia, as well as the Kremlin administration.
Igor Eidman, a political scientist and sociologist from Germany, said this in a commentary to Channel 24.
Eidman also compared the current head of the Kremlin to the dictator Joseph Stalin. The expert recalled that after the death of Stalin, the world moved away from the brink of the Third World War, to which it was led.
“Something similar is happening with the second tyrant – Putin.” True, he is still, unfortunately, alive,” the political scientist said.
At the same time, according to Eidman, not only bloody crimes were a sign of Stalin's policy. This dictator had a self-preservation instinct and could stop. Putin is closer to the third tyrant – Hitler.
“Putin, like Hitler, does not know how to stop,” the sociologist said.
According to the expert, Putin, like Hitler, at one time had “dizziness from dictatorial successes”, from the fact that he established complete unlimited power in Russia.
“From the fact that he managed to capture Crimea quite easily and quickly at one time. And after that,“ dizziness from success ”he completely blew the roof,” said Igor Eidman.
The head of Russia began to behave irrationally even from the side of security and interests.
“The adventure into which he fell on February 24 last year will obviously cost him the throne, his dictatorial powers, if not life, which is also quite likely,” the political scientist said.
At the same time, Eidman stressed that the Russian criminal regime that Putin started would lead his country to collapse. And its approach is already visible.
Eidman called the signs of an approaching split in Russia. Among them, in particular, the conflict between the head of PIK “Wagner” Yevgeny Prigozhin and the Russian Defense Ministry. However, according to the political scientist, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
“This is a sign that the central authorities are not in control of the situation. This can only happen during a civil war or some kind of unrest, but not during a war with an external enemy,” the expert said.
The political scientist believes that the main threat to the Putin regime and his power is not posed by Prigozhin and not “the scumbags that are on the lips.”
“And the quiet 'undercarpets' who are accustomed to living and operating 'under the carpet' are Russian bureaucrats. Both civil and security forces. This war is not needed. All because it broke their usual way of life in luxury, travel, with the opportunity to be treated and teach children abroad. Therefore, they drove into stress and are trying to urgently force them to somehow turn the tide, militarize the economy, business,” the sociologist said.
However, this class of society does not like it all. Igor Eidman suggests that Russian bureaucrats believe that Vladimir Putin and some of his close siloviki have gone mad. And they are probably preparing some kind of countermeasures if the war does not stop soon.
“I think at some point they will not stand it and will create a certain conspiracy against Putin with the participation of the security forces and simply liquidate him or remove him from power,” he said.
At the same time, another political scientist Nikolai Davidyuk is sure that Vladimir Putin is blackmailing the world with the collapse of Russia. But this is exactly what awaits the aggressor country after losing the war.
