    Will Putin declare victory over Ukraine on his 70th birthday?

    Russian oppositionist Garry Kasparov argues that the Russian authorities have already understood that the war with Ukraine cannot be won in the way originally planned. He suggests, however, that dictators are nevertheless attached to dates. “Therefore, Putin’s propaganda goal is to declare victory on 7 October, which is his 70th birthday,” Kasparov argues.

    “I am almost sure of this because dictators love various anniversaries (…) I think that some common sense has finally prevailed in the Kremlin and it has been noticed there that Ukraine is not being defeated on the scale they initially wanted to achieve. This means that it is now necessary to secure territorial gains, dig in and negotiate from a position of strength. This is Putin’s view,” Kasparov announced in an interview with the Ukrainian portal obozrevatel.com.

     

    According to the oppositionist, the recent developments on the frontline, namely the successful attacks by the Ukrainians using US HIMARS missile launchers, have caused panic among the Russians and stopped their offensive.
