Why Putin is “shaking” his own circle: ISW named an interesting reason

ISW reported this information, reports URA-Inform.  

Analysts at the Institute for the Study of War regularly assess that Putin is deliberately creating an environment in which officials in his inner circle must compete for his favor, largely to ensure that his aides remain loyal to him and to his regime.

ISW also noted that Putin tends to rotate officials and military commanders rather than fire them entirely, to prevent any one individual from accumulating too much political influence and to maintain support among competitive factions.

Putin is unlikely to change this system and eliminate these verticals of power, since they are the basis of his rule. ISW has also observed numerous cases in which Russian officials and commanders used the information space to attract Putin's attention, discredit the opposition faction, and influence changes within the Russian president's inner circle.

Such factional feuds have noticeable, but not decisive, consequences for battlefield. They can undermine the cohesion of Russian forces and demoralize Russian personnel, but are unlikely to lead to a massive conflict in Russian ranks or society as a whole.

We recall that it was previously reported that Malyar named the Russians’ goal at the moment: and this is not major offensive.
