Putin ‘fighting for his life’ as fears grow he’ll be killed if Russia loses war

Evil Vladimir Putin is “fighting for his life” because if he loses the bloody war in Ukraine he will be ousted from the Kremlin and killed, an expert has said.

The brutal dictator’s eastern European invasion has been flailing with brave Ukrainian troops making territorial gains against the Russian aggressors as morale plummets amongst Putin’s men.

If the former KGB man’s invasion continues to serve embarrassing failures it could spell the end of his terrifying reign over Russia.

Ukrainian advisor Oleksiy Arestovich told The Times: “Putin is very afraid because there is no forgiveness in Russia for tsars who lose wars.

“He is fighting for his life now. If he loses the war, at least in the minds of the Russians, it means the end. The end of him as a political figure. And possibly in the physical sense.

“This has forced even people who are very loyal to Putin to doubt that they can win this war.”

Putin has already faced dissent amongst former loyalists following the withdrawal of Russian forces from Kherson.

Even his brutal security services are growing fed-up with their leader, accusing him of being too blood-thirsty after a morbid execution video was released.

And problems within his troops are racking up too, with intercepted calls from the frontline revealing some soldiers are spitting up blood after contracting tuberculosis from the grim conditions.

In fact, Putin is so desperate to save himself by winning the war that he has released convicted murderers from their cells to help in the fight.

One of the troops sent off to the front line was ex-policeman Vadim Tekhov, 33, who was released from jail just one year into his 16-year sentence for the murder of his ex-wife.
