Putin's regime is preparing for riots across Russia — military expert Prytula
Military expert Mykhailo Prytula believes that a new wave of mobilization and losses in the war could lead to mass unrest throughout Russia
He shared his opinions with Espreso TV.
"Most likely, the Kremlin regime will start mobilizing after the presidential elections. That is, sometime in April, they (Russian mobilized soldiers - ed.) will again spread in all directions of the front. They will crawl here en masse, but there will be a response. So while their 200s are being transported all over the Russian Federation, the population's discontent will grow. By the end of the year, Russia is likely to face a revolt," Prytula explained.
The expert believes that the Putin regime is preparing for riots throughout Russia in advance.
"The Kremlin is well aware that a new wave of mobilization and zinc coffins throughout the Russian Federation could lead to riots. They are preparing for this. Of course, they will suppress these riots. That is why they have been preparing their private military campaigns for a long time. That is, the political leadership of the Russian Federation is preparing in advance for mass unrest throughout Russia. Because Russians are not against the war with Ukraine, but against their participation in this war. Therefore, the more of them leave Ukraine in their coffins, the more discontent among the Russian population will grow," he added.
- The presidential election in Russia is scheduled for March 17, 2024. Amendments to the Russian constitution adopted in 2020 allow incumbent President Putin to run for a fifth term.
- On December 8, Putin announced his intention to run for president in 2024. Later, the Russian Central Election Commission called the so-called presidential elections in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia regions.
