Moscow: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who has been busy resisting the Russian attacks for over a year now, claimed that Vladimir Putin’s end will be at the hands of his close allies. “Carnivores will eat the carnivore,” Zelenskyy said without mincing any words.
Zelenskyy made the comments in a Ukrainian documentary called Year, produced by journalist Dmytro Komarov. The documentary was released on Friday, coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, according to a report in Newsweek.
The Ukrainian president believed that there would come a time when “fragility” in Putin’s leadership would be felt and then he would eventually be killed by his own inner circle.
“There will certainly be a moment when the fragility of Putin’s regime is felt in Russia,” Zelensky said. “Then carnivores will eat the carnivore. It is very important, and they will need a reason to justify this. They will recall the words of Komarov, of Zelenskyy…They will remember. They will find a reason to kill the killer. Will it work? Yes. When? I don’t know.”
There have been several reports of alleged discontentment among Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, especially after the “military exercise” in Ukraine extended for days, weeks, months, and crossed a year. The Russian President’s closest allies are increasingly growing restless as there is still no decisive victory in sight in Ukraine, as per a report by The Washington Post in December, 2022.
