A leading Russian opposition member Harry Kasparov is convinced that there are no illusions left in the West about Pres Putin’s regime.
Speaking on 1+1 TV channel late Apr. 3, Kasparov said the annexation of Crimea and war in Donbas became a big propaganda red-herring for Pres Putin.
“This red-herring allowed Putin to hide Russia’s worsened economic and social problems,” he said.
“It is clear that the Putin regime has entered its agony stage. However, the agony may be long and bloody,” Kasparov said.
“Despite the mind-blowing amount of money spent on brainwashing, I believe no one in the West has any illusions now about the Putin regime,” the world chess champion said.
Earlier, Kasparov said Putin had dismantled the security system created in 1945 and is sure of his lobby in Europe.
