As this war goes on, during this destruction period Ukraine is facing the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine has claimed that a group of some people who are strong opposers of Putin is hatching a plan to “poison” him somehow.

It is being said that the main aim of these people is to stop and snatch Putin’s Political power as soon as they can so that they can make things right and restore the damage done by Russian soldiers during the war, their main focus is to mend things in the west area.

“A part of Russia’s political elite sees Federal Security Service Director Alexander Bortnikov as Putin’s successor. It is Bortnikov who has recently fallen out of favor with the Russian dictator. The official reason for the FSS leader’s downfall is fatal miscalculations in the war against Ukraine”, Ukraine intelligence has said, Ukrayinska Pravda reported.

The reason Bortniknov is being dragged up is the evaluation he made regarding the Ukraine military capability as well as the amount of normal population being mistaken too. It has also come to the media’s knowledge that except Bortniknov there are some other high-ranking Russian officials who wish to dismiss Putin as a power holder. In particular, poisoning, sudden illness, or other “accident” is not excluded, the intelligence said.

Bortniknov is basically a former officer who used to serve his nation alongside Putin but not anymore. The reason for him being out of the service is being said that he has experienced a major fallout since the moment Russian soldiers have faced a big loss against Ukraine soldiers as well as their normal population who now is playing a role of soldier for their country’s safety.

A Western source told the Daily Mirror:

These rumors and suspicions within the Moscow inner-circle will sow the seeds of paranoia and doubt in the leadership. There is a significant suspicion that a small number of people might actually now try to get rid of the Russian president but whether they will succeed remains to be seen.”

As indicated by insight, this break might have been expected both to debilitate Kadyrov’s impact and as an endeavor to lay out collaboration with the Ukrainian experts ahead of time, bypassing the current administration of the Russian Federation, the report said.

.As per the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the key “focuses” of hired fighters: are Volodymyr Zelensky, Andriy Yermak, and Denys Shmyhal

“Putin personally ordered one of the few proxies to carry out new attacks. All previous attempts have ended in the failure and elimination of terrorists”, Ukrayinska Pravda reported.

Although recently it was claimed that the Russian President has agreed to have a conversation with the Ukraine President Zelensky which might lead towards the end of this war but judging the conditions was put forth it might be a difficult road to walk on.


In the same context, Zelensky was engaged in a conversation with US news channel CNN where he said:

 “Talks are worth pursuing even if they have a one percent chance of success… We have demonstrated the dignity of our people and our army. But unfortunately, our dignity is not going to preserve lives. So I think that we have to use any format, any chance, in order to have the possibility of negotiating.”
