Putin Overthrow Coming Soon?

Could this be Ukrainian misinformation, or is it true?

According to a recent Tweet form The Kyiv Independent, Russian oligarchs are planning to overthrow Putin in an effort to restore trade and normal economic ties with Western nations.

While we are seeing these rumors spread through the liberal Western mainstream media, we are seeing other conflicting reports showing an outpouring of support for Putin at a recent pro war rally.

That being said, these crowds could be paid or orchestrated, as Russia is a state which keeps an iron fisted grip on its media, protest movements, rallies, and the national internet infrastructure.

The Kyiv Independent report is currently unconfirmed, and obviously biased, but we do not know if their allegations are true or not at this point.

They may very well prove to be true, and we will bring you updates on this story as they become available to us.

Here is what we could currently dig up:

Western Journal had this to say:

Amid state TV that talks about Nazis in Ukraine, many Russians are circumventing the official ban on connecting to social media that tell the rest of the world what is actually happening.

Mikhail Shevelev, a Moscow-based journalist, talked of “shock, hatred and depression,” of the “drastic” divide among Russian citizens who only know what Putin’s government tells them and those who are fully informed.

 

The Washington Post stoked the rumors:

Putin is indeed afraid, but not of covid. He fears a coup.

The oligarchs aren’t the ones who would turn on Putin. There is something of a power-sharing agreement between Putin and his oligarchical team, but it is one-sided and mostly economic: Putin allows them to run large moneymaking entities in Russia and abroad, and in return, they help him launder his own funds or assist him for whatever else he deems them useful.

But the oligarchs have no direct access to hard power, such as police or other armed security forces in Russia.
