Ukraine war: Countdown has begun to end of Putin, says Kyiv officials

Vladimir Putin’s presidency is about to come to an end, according to officials in Kjiv.

President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office has spoken confidently about the beginning of Putin’s downfall while the Russian autocrat tries to recover from the humiliation of the mutiny, one that allegedly had the support of high-ranking officials and met with little resistance from his own Armed Forces, including the second-in-command for the “special military operation” in Ukraine, General Sergei Surovikin.

Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of Wagner, revealed to Russians the absurdity of the Kremlin’s justifications for their full-scale invasion of Ukraine; if those seeds are not sown, it will become harder for Putin to maintain his grasp on power.

As evidenced by his silence throughout the months-long public arguments between Prigozhin and the Kremlin’s defence minister Sergei Shoigu as well as the commander of the Armed Forces in Ukraine, Valery Gerasimov, Vladimir Putin’s autocracy is based on presiding over the deadly competition between rival factions beneath him.

Putin stayed silent while the public feud grew more acrimonious and destructive in order to make sure that, should something happen, he remained above the issue.

The Wagner Group is a Kremlin-funded organisation, which Prigozhin was forced to recognise in order to lessen his authority. By doing so, he admitted that he was the source of his own problem and his reputation as an infallible ruler was damaged.

Senior Ukrainian officials have come to the conclusion that “the countdown has started” to the end of Putin’s rule as a result of this new reality, including Andriy Yermak, President Zelensky’s closest advisor.

Following the events of last weekend and the response within Russia in the days immediately following, Mr. Yermak declared: “This [Russia] is a terrorist country whose leader is an inept person who has lost touch with reality.

The world must come to the conclusion that no meaningful contacts with that nation are possible.

Additionally, in order to prevent further conflict and maintain the effectiveness of his “special military operation” in Ukraine, Putin must now find a way to eliminate from the Armed Forces all members who did not oppose the Wagner insurrection while also absorbing the insurgents into his Armed Forces.

According to another anonymous Ukrainian source, the Putin administration “cannot be saved” because of its endless maze.
