The Chechen leader Ramzan Kadîrov and the Russian businessman, the founder of the Wagner group Yevgeny Prigozhin will eventually cling to the current president of the Russian Federation, because after Putin’s resignation “they will no longer live”, says political scientist and publicist Andrei Piontkovski at the Channel station 24.

According to the analyst, the Russian generals will not allow Putin to bet on a certain circle of people in his entourage.

“They (Prigozhin, Kadîrov – ed.) will stick to him (Putin – ed.), because if Putin leaves tomorrow due to illness, the next day Prigozhin and Kadîrov will be killed in some way of a car accident or simply shot,” the analyst said.

The political scientist explained that after leaving power, Putin will try to bet on those “who cannot live without him”, but such a bet is a losing one, because it is a small group of people.

“This is a very small group of people compared to the Russian army,” the analyst concluded.

Earlier, Piontkovski said that a series of defeats of the Russian army on the Ukrainian front launched the scenario of a civil war in Russia. The elites close to the Kremlin started to “bite each other”, and “a weakened Putin is not able to stop them”. According to the political scientist, Russia will soon be very feverish because of the “confrontation” in the Kremlin, so it will no longer depend on the war against Ukraine.
