“The most interesting thing is that they are at the epicenter of decision-making,” said Valery Solovey, the analyst. “But they keep acting mechanically hoping that the situation will dissolve itself and not believing in it.”
The Russian political leadership is aware of the coming political crisis. However, they hope that the situation will be untangled by itself. At the same time, there is a sense of confusion in the Kremlin, as the crisis is looming. This opinion was voiced by Valery Solovey, Doctor of History and a well-known political analyst, in an interview with Glavtema YouTube channel.
He added that similar forecasts were made about the date of a probable outbreak of the political crisis in the country in a conversation with “more than knowledgeable experts in this issue.”
“I believe that very soon a major political crisis might begin in Russia,” said Dr. Solovey. “There will be two waves, and the second wave will be much more powerful than the first one. Recently, I have spoken with very knowledgeable people about how everything is going to happen. Firstly, it is likely to be very intense and very tight. We agreed that the main events are likely to take place in the autumn of this year and in the beginning of the next year.
Forecasts differ only in one or two months. According to some of them, it might start in September, and, according to another, in November. In February, as the experts stated, the most intensive stage is likely to start.
Notably, the same forecasts are on the table of the country's political leaders, and they take them more than seriously. They are worried and want to finish what they started as soon as possible. I mean voting on the Constitution. The most interesting thing is that they are at the epicenter of decision-making. But they keep acting mechanically hoping that the situation will dissolve on its own and they do not believe in it.
The Kremlin is at a loss as it is awaiting the inevitable. This has never happened with the highest echelons of Russian elite.”
