They say that Putin listens to the opinions of his spokesman Dmitry Peskov more than the opinions of Sergei Shoigu and Valery Gerasimov. It is no secret that Mr. Peskov plays one of the most important roles in the Kremlin today and, in fact, is one of the few close associates with whom Putin consults before making many particularly important political decisions.
Outwardly, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov looks like a sane person. So is Putin’s spokesman unable to explain to his boss that Russia is on the verge of collapse and collapse due to the totalitarian, dictatorial policies that Putin has been stubbornly pursuing in the country for more than 20 years.
It is possible that Peskov simply flatters Putin, agreeing with his boss in everything. But why? Why? Today, many in the Kremlin, even the Kremlin officials, and politicians closest to Putin are absolutely sure that Putin rules in Russia as a king. But is it possible in the 21st century to control modern Russia with medieval methods? I’m sure that sooner or later, the Russians, the whole of Russian society will say no to Putin’s dictatorship. I am sure that sooner or later, the Russian freedom-loving people will say no to the dictatorship, and they will say a firm yes to democracy. Time will tell.
