Andrii Chernyak, the representative of the Defence Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, told “RBK-Ukraine” about the possibility of popular uprisings and the overthrow of Putin’s government.
“Now any coup in Russia is impossible. The system there is built so that people in power are interested in preserving the existing state of affairs. They have their fortunes, their vision of the world. Among them some sober people understand the criticality of the current situation in Russia. But they will never become a mouthpiece of any changes. Those with a different opinion are either destroyed, or they are too intimidated to take any drastic actions,” Andriy Chernyak said.
According to the representative of military intelligence of Ukraine, there is a possibility that a street may rise in Russia.
“This will happen when the number of people killed in the war will not be tens, but hundreds of thousands. The people are still bombarded with propaganda and intimidated by security forces. Everyone understands that all decisions are made by a single person. People may live in poverty, but they will not go against their king. But when there are hundreds of thousands of corpses, it will be a different situation,” added the representative of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
As Andriy Chernyak noted, people in Russia who closely cooperate with the military intelligence of Ukraine – “are conscious, adequate and understand that their country is facing collapse.”
“But at the same time, they cannot bring themselves to initiate something like an internal coup. They are waiting outside. When the street rises, then representatives of the ruling “top” will join the riots. In all structures, in every ministry, there are people who are ready to join this process. When their “ship” really goes to the bottom, there will be many who will renounce Putin,” concluded the representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Ukraine.
It would be a glorious site when Putin is captured before he commits suicide, that he is taken to the public square, naked, tied down on a bench, then Drawn and Quartered like they used to do in the Middle Ages.
The measure of civility is in how you treat your enemy when you are dominant. Russians are conducting themselves in a mean and narcissistic manner. In Boston I was selling my house and listed it with a woman realtor who was Russian. When the house did not sell and the listing expired, I chose not to list it with her. Still she wanted her “commission” and I tried to tell her that she did not deserve a commission inasmuch as she did not sell the house. She harassed me with calls to my company and I had to inform the Massachusetts real estate licensing program of her attempts to intimidate me with fraudulent claims. I henceforth refuse to do business with anyone of Russian extraction. For the people of Ukraine: Don’t be bullied or intimidated ! Stand your ground! We are so proud of you and your nationalistic strength. And when it comes time to rebuild your country, do NOT use Russian contractors!.
