Russian generals are upset about Putin’s wage on war
While President Vladimir Putin continues to wage Russia’s war in Ukraine, his former colleague has criticised him strongly, claiming the former KGB which is the English committee for state security agents is “out of it”.
He said: “When I saw the meeting of Russia’s Security Council I realised, yes, there will be a war. “I just know these people and by looking at them I saw that Putin is already out of it. Not in a medical sense but in political terms — I knew a different Putin.”
By comparing the two, Putin and Milošević are the same. Mr. Costa said the Russian president could be vulnerable to a coup, telling ABC News: “because Milošević, was a war criminal, he violated laws of conflict and executed a racial killing in Bosnia and Herzegovina, he oversaw genocide in Kosovo.
“Putin is a problem and he is extremely vulnerable of going the way of Milosevic, to go to some criminal tribunal someday, he is also vulnerable inside Moscow.
“He is vulnerable to his general officers being extremely upset with the way he is waging war right now.”
He added: “When your people are not behind you, whether it’s your military or security service, that’s a huge problem.
While some Russians gathered on the streets to protest against the invasion of Ukraine in the early days of the conflict, Moscow has clamped down on any hint of disagreement.
Those found guilty can be dealt a prison sentence of 15 years.
Putin has a very small circle of allies that speak to him directly, and the Russian President is secretive when it comes to his political strategy.
Speaking in April, he implied that some inside the Kremlin’s power structures are ready to give up the fight.
He added that the third demand was “to repent for everything we have done.”
By saying “at least the Russian diplomats that work here” – the Putin ally possibly suggested that some are keen to end the conflict.
