Igor Girkin: If Putin doesn’t win war in Ukraine, he’ll be destroyed politically and physically

Today, Igor Girkin, the former so-called minister of defense of the DPR, said that the President Vladimir Putin still had a chance to rectify the situation with the war in Ukraine.

Igor Girkin: Putin must win the war in Ukraine

While commenting on the news of the "Novorossiya" and answering the questions of journalists, Igor Girkin noted that the key to victory and the subsequent revival of the "Novorossiya" remained in Moscow, Joinfo.ua reports.

"There's still a hope that Putin will finally realize that the complete destruction of Kyiv is necessary for his own political and probably physical survival. And if this "understanding" happens, then my return (in any capacity) will be unlikely, but reasonable and probably useful. But for the current Donetsk and Luhansk clowns it will mean emergency evacuation, in order not to accidentally run into me on the road.

Friendly speaking, I do not think that even in the event of a fundamental change of policy I will be given credentials and the possibility to return to the "Novorossiya ". I've said and written too many truthful words about some of the "untouchable" gentlemen, who have shuffled from one place to another in the Kremlin "deck of cards" for fifteen years.

As long as the "deck" is irremovable and its "cards" get new responsible assignments after each next debacle, I have nothing to hope for (except for an early funeral at public expense). I will not be surprised if Mr. Zurabov will be appointed as the Minister of Sports, and Mr. Mutko will become the Assistant to the President in charge of Ukraine. Both failed their jobs. Why not to swap them? Well, there is no escaping for Mr. Surkov too.. " said Girkin.
