In his opinion, Putin is so “adjusted” system of government for themselves, that no one after him will not easily “catch” without loss.
Xxxxxxxxxxxx recalled that a few weeks before the presidential elections, the poisoning of the former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in British Salisbury. In his opinion, the fact that the UK has blamed Russia, helped Putin’s rating. The British side, as noted by xxxxxxxxxxxx, did not provide evidence, so the President looked like “an innocent victim of a vicious libel.”
The fact that Putin won the election 76,67% of the vote, according to the journalist, “stunned even critics of the regime.”
