This falls in the category of I hope it’s true but won’t believe it until it happens. The Daily Mail is reporting:
According to Ukraine’s Chief Directorate of Intelligence at the war-torn country’s Ministry of Defence, a ‘group of influential’ individuals in Russia have begun plotting to remove the dictator from office.
The ‘group of influential individuals in Russia’ includes the military and political elite.
Per the report, this cabal is planning to poison Putin. The replacement will be someone who will restore economic ties with the West. If this report is accurate, don’t you think Vlad will hire a “food taster?” It’s not just poison. They are considering “Poisoning, sudden disease, accident” It is not known if the people who carry it out would be tole to leave the poison but take the cannolis.

Strangely the source is the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine’s Facebook page. At least that’s what the news reports referenced.
!! ️ Poisoning, sudden disease, accident – Russian elite considers the possibility of removing PutinIn the environment of the Russian business and political elite, a group of influential persons opposing Putin’s Volodymyr Putin is formed.
Their goal is to remove Putin from power as soon as possible and restore economic ties with the West, destroyed due to the war in Ukraine.
A certain part of the Russian political elite of Russia considers as a successor to Putin – FSB director Oleksandr Bortnikov. It is a sign that it is Bortnikov recently got into nemilístʹ on the part of the Russian dictator. The official reason for the collapse of the head of the fsb – fatal calculations in the war against Ukraine.
Bortnikov and his department were responsible for the analysis of the attitudes of the Ukrainian population and the capacity of the Ukrainian army.
It is known that Bortnikov and some other influential representatives of the Russian elite are considering various options to remove Putin from power. In particular, poisoning, sudden disease, or any other “coincidence” is not excluded.
It is not excluded that the recent “drain” of the location of the Chechen units in northern Kiev is connected with these processes.
Information came exactly from the Russian side. Probably so the FSB management is trying to weaken the influence of Kadyrov. Also, this may be an attempt to early improve interaction with Ukrainian authorities in the bypass of the current Russian leadership.
