Ukrainian Institute for Future tells who Russians consider most likely successor to Putin
Vadym Denysenko, Executive Director of the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, said that 25% of Russians want to see a new president of the Russian Federation
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"This is not the first time the Ukrainian Institute for the Future has conducted a sociological survey in Russia. Over the past year, the level of trust in Vladimir Putin has fallen sharply, and the reason for this was Prigozhin's march, it fell by 7%. Kadyrov's trust rating has fallen the most, by minus 15%. For the first time, Russians are saying that they want Putin to name his successor," Denysenko emphasized.
According to the executive director of the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, Russians do not see a picture of the future without Putin's successor.
"Russians realize that they are scared without Putin. But they also realize that he is mortal. 25% of Russians say they want to see a new president. Almost 50% say they want Putin to name his successor. And among those they consider most likely is Russian Prime Minister Mishustin. He would have a rating of 24% if Putin were not in office. And this is good news for us. Because we want Putin to be afraid of this figure and to start destroying his closest competitors," Denysenko emphasized.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that over the past 6-7 months, 270,000 people have allegedly voluntarily signed military contracts with the Russian army.
On Tuesday, September 12, Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted to the State Duma a bill to declare September 30 a "day of reunification" between Russia and the occupied Ukrainian territories.
