According to Valery Solovey, a political expert and doctor of historical sciences, the authorities have made a number of strategic errors that only aggravated the situation in Russia. To his thinking, the political crisis might affect all aspects of life.

A grave political crisis is about to hit Russia. As a result, the country is likely to enter a new phase of history. Dr. Solovey made this statement in an interview with the RTVI channel.

According to him, the authorities have made a number of strategic errors that only aggravated the situation in Russia. To his thinking, the political crisis might affect all the aspects of people’s lives and the system of government control. Therefore, at the end of next year, “we are highly likely to find ourselves in a completely different Russia.”

“The arrest of Sergey Furgal, then governor of the Khabarovsk territory, has triggered a shift in the way of thinking of other Russian governors. Conversations with some officials have given me an idea that at present, they prefer to stay inactive in order not to displease the Kremlin and not to find themselves in similar situations. They prefer to wash their hands of everything not to get in the crosshairs of the federal centre.

“All these events presage an impending crisis in Russia, which I have repeatedly spoken about. It is not likely to be long, but, to my thinking, it might be truly sensitive. The authorities can make any plans for 2024 or for 2036 and adopt any amendments to the Constitution but it is obvious that the political crisis is about to hit Russia.

“Our government is entering a new historic period. In my opinion, at the end of the next year, we are highly likely to find ourselves in a dramatically different Russia.”
