This week Vladimir Putin and the former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev have threatened to use Russia’s “strategic nuclear deterrent” to defend their territory.
A Russian expert has claimed that should Putin attempt to launch any type of a nuclear missile then is it most likely his Generals will “kill him.”
Professor Peter Duncan at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) told the Express.co.uk that Putin does not understand the situation and he is “isolated from reality.”
Professo Duncan said, “The bottom line is that Putin is isolated from reality. He just doesn’t understand either about Russia, what people think in Russia, or about what people think abroad, which is, in other words, everywhere. And that’s why he makes mistake after mistake.”
The Generals who are at the top of that list are Russia’s Minister of Defence Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Vasilyevich Gerasimov.
He said, “I still think that if Putin did begin to use nuclear weapons – or if he did actually tell Shoigu and Gerasimov to use nuclear weapons – not just deploy them, but use them somewhere in Ukraine, I think it’s entirely likely that [they] would refuse and then they would have to move against Putin and kill him.
“Because they would be disobeying an order. Not that it is that easy to kill Putin, they’d have to get the people in the FSB to help them kill Putin.”
