Poisoning, a sudden illness, or an accident - the russian elite is considering putin's elimination. This was reported on Facebook by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
"A group of influential people opposed to putin is being formed among the russian business-political elite. Their goal is to remove putin from power as soon as possible and restore economic ties with the West, destroyed due to the war in Ukraine. A certain part of the russian political elite considers FSB director Alexander Bortnikov as putin's successor. It is noteworthy that it was Bortnikov who recently fell into disgrace from the russian dictator. The official reason for the disgrace of the FSB head is fatal miscalculations in the war against Ukraine. It was Bortnikov and his department who were responsible for analyzing the mood of the population of Ukraine and the capabilities of the Ukrainian army. It is known that Bortnikov and some other influential representatives of the russian elite are considering various options for removing putin from power. In particular, options for poisoning, sudden illness, or other "accidents" are not ruled out", - the message says.
"It is possible that the recent "leak" of the location of Chechen units in the north of Kyiv is connected with these processes. The information came from the russian side. Probably, this is how the FSB leadership is trying to weaken Kadyrov's influence. It may also be an attempt to establish cooperation with the Ukrainian authorities in advance bypassing the current leadership of the russian federation", - Ukrainian intelligence notes.
