Kasyanov believes that Vladimir Putin may step down as president soon.

Putin can escape in a few months, Kasyanov adds British Sky News.

On Friday, Putin declared victory in the referendums and that the Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia provinces were part of Russia.

The announcement came shortly after Putin announced last week a partial mobilization in the country. The decision faced significant opposition in Russia and hundreds of Russians were arrested in the demonstrations that followed. Many also chose to flee the country.

Three factors

Kasyanov now thinks that might help make Putin decide to step down.

I don’t think there is anyone in Putin’s circle who could make him resign. Putin himself must reach such an understanding. I think there are three factors, increasing at the same time, that might prompt him to make the decision to flee, says Kasyanov.

The three factors are the following:

  1. The Ukrainian army is growing and receiving support from the United States and Great Britain.
  2. Putin is losing support among ordinary Russians after the mobilization order increased social unrest in the country.
  3. The impact of Western sanctions is increasing.

– In three or four months, I think we will have a very decisive change, Kasyanov tells the channel.

He fled Russia by himself

The 64-year-old openly criticized Putin’s policies after he terminated the premiership during Putin’s first term in office in 2004. In May, he criticized the Kremlin for what he described as the “brutal war” against Ukraine in an interview with Germany. Deutsche Welle.

This summer, Kasyanov confirmed that he fled Russia because he feared his life might be in danger.

– I hope it won’t last long, he wrote to Agence France-Presse.
