According to the former head of the CIA, Jack Devine, Putin will be removed from power as a result of a coup d'etat due to the war in Ukraine, which «has reached a dead end». At the same time, he noted that he would not be surprised if the Russian dictator «disappears tomorrow».
«It will be surprise. There is always what we call a «black swan» (a theory that deals with difficult to predict and rare events that have significant consequences) that appears out of nowhere. Putin could disappear tomorrow, and I wouldn't be surprised if some element in the government decides he's going to take executive action», — he said.
At the same time, Devine added, unless there is a “black swan”, Putin’s problems will begin when he reaches a dead end, which is precisely what is happening now.
«I don't think it will be an uprising. “I think that this will be what we can call a palace coup,” he summed up.
Let us recall that it was previously reported what Putin fears most: Gudkov named the dictator’s main fear.
