Andrei Kozyrev, a former Russian Minister, has stated that Vladimir Putin might be killed or removed through an internal coup.

Kozyrev said this while explaining what might happen to Putin for ordering an attack on Ukraine.

The former minister informed US Daily Express that some key figures in the Kremlin might be plotting an attack against the president.

Kozyrev, who was Russia’s Foreign Minister from 1990 to 1996, recalled that past leaders in the country were either killed or retired.

“Many Russian csars were killed. Many were dismissed one way or the other.

“Even in the Soviet Union, there were ways; Stalin was said to have been poisoned, Khrushchev was just escorted out of the Kremlin.

“With Putin, I very much expect there to be resistance growing and discontent growing that will be resolved one way or another.

“I don’t know which way but Russian history is full of unexpected outcomes.

“It’s horrific but it’s not irrational. To understand why the invasion was rational for Putin, we have to step into his shoes.”
