UKRAINIAN intelligence has stated that members of the Russian elite are planning to poison Vladimir Putin.
The Director General of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine said that “a group of influential people within the Kremlin are plotting to overthrow Putin.

Powerful insiders are said to be dismayed by the ramifications of the war and the sanctions imposed on the Russian economy.
“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 illness, or any other ‘coincidence’ cannot be ruled out.”
Bortnikov, 70, is a close ally of Putin and the two have climbed the ladder together in Russian society.
Both served in the KGB in Leningrad, before Bortnikov took over the rebranded security service.
An in-depth investigation by the Dossier Center claims that Bortnikov’s FSB is both the brain and heart of the Putin regime, a “state within authority”.

“There is considerable doubt that a small number of people might actually try to remove the President of Russia but whether they succeed or not remains to be seen.”
