Among Putin’s possible successors is a Ukrainian belonging to the Kremlin elite

The only way out is to hand over power to a successor

“Everyone understands that Russia will no longer be able to confront the whole world and the situation will have to be somehow normalized. Otherwise, the country will begin to degrade, become similar to North Korea. We are different from the North Koreaat least a third of the Russian public is against the government, and when life becomes very difficult, another third will join them,” states Russian political scientist Abbas Galiamov.

One possible scenario for the easing of tensions is the decision of President Vladimir Putin to hand over the powers to his successor, to step down from this post, most likely keeping enough power levers for himself.

Although the possible successor of V. Putin has been talked about for a long time, the secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation has also been named as him Nikolai Patrushev or his son, even the name of the former president and prime minister Dmitry Medvedev was mentioned, the political scientist believes that a completely different person could become the successor.
