Carl Bildt: in the end, Putin will lose the Kremlin too
This is Russia’s third major defeat in this war.
The former head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry, co-chairman of the analytical center of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), Carl Bildt, believes that after a series of defeats of his army in Ukraine, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin will lose power.
As Bildt noted on Twitter, the Russians are retreating from Kherson and, in retreat, destroyed the Antonovsky Bridge across the Dnieper River, the capture of which was perhaps their most considerable tactical success since the February 24 invasion of Ukraine.
A series of Russian defeats in the war against Ukraine, Bildt is convinced, will eventually lead to the loss of power by the Russian dictator.
“The Ukrainian flag in Kherson right now is a picture that, according to Vladimir Putin, should never have happened. This is his third major defeat in this war – Kyiv, Kharkiv and now Kherson. In the end, he will lose the Kremlin,” he said.
