Sometimes there is a moment when the simplest, most logical solution to a problem starts to become clear.  What many have been wondering about and hoping for as a way for this war to end may already be taking shape within Russia.

The New York Post reports that, according to Ukrainian intelligence sources, a group of influential Russian elites has coalesced around the intention to get rid of Putin, as quickly as possible and by whatever means necessary.  The story notes that Alexander Bortnikov, a member of Putin’s inner circle, is under consideration to become his successor.

The new leader would have to be able to communicate and work with Ukraine and be able to restore ties with the West.

No huge surprises here if this is true.  How else could this war of choice, perpetrated largely by one man, be stopped quickly?

A group of Russian elites are allegedly conspiring to overthrow Russian President Vladimir Putin and “restore economic ties” with the West, according to Ukrainian intelligence.

“Poisoning, sudden illness, accident – Russia’s elite is considering removing Putin,” declared a Sunday Facebook post from the Chief Directorate of Intelligence for the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

The ministry claimed that a group of “influential people” has been forming in Russia who want to “remove Putin from power as soon as possible and restore economic ties with the West, which were destroyed by the war in Ukraine.”
