I think most accomplished Russia watchers think Putin will leave office...in a box. How he gets there is the question. The best he can hope for is to die in his sleep.

Gizzyfan is the official Russian plant on this forum. ;)
Hasn’t there been quite a bit of chatter that he’s stepping down this year?

It is one of Putin's biggest failures not to have a successor, I reckon he will step down soon and go into a position roughly equivalent to our Governor General. Significantly he already has immunity from Prosecution.

Clever boy our Vlad.

Tyrants don't plan for successors. He will go in a box. Apparently he is unwell so he might already be on the way.

I am starting to wonder, it seems every worthwhile website has been infiltrated by both the Chinese and Russians.

So either we have a couple on here, or we are not worthwhile...

Pro Navalny protests growing, 10s of thousands out chanting against putin. 5100 arrested.
Difference to Trump supporters?
Capitol riots?

Biden saying ' oh don't be too harsh and arrest the protesters'
When his governments done the same albeit more sneakily

Crimea was annexed relatively peacefully
Look at what America has done to Syria Iraq Afghanistan Bolivia Venezuela and libya?

Agree generally but annexing Crimea suggests Russia took it over where Crimea actually joined Russia after a referebdum voted 95% in favour of returning to Russia.
