In the event of a defeat in Ukraine, according to internal information, an escape plan for Vladimir Putin would be entirely organized by the Kremlin.
Is Vladimir Putin looking for a way out as Russian troops stall in Ukraine? The Kremlin’s difficulties in carrying out its “special operation” would lead Russian authorities to organize an escape plan for the Russian president. It was Abbas Gallyamov, political adviser and former speechwriter for Vladimir Putin, who revealed the information in a Telegram message, which was taken over by the media Insider.

The unofficial operation, to be organized in the spring, would be called “Noah’s Ark”. The goal: to organize the escape of Vladimir Putin in the event of a “completely uncomfortable” internal situation. The first choice for flights was China, but the Kremlin boss’s advisers have reportedly since turned to South America. With Argentina or Venezuela in particular. It is the Russian oligarch and close to Vladimir Putin, Igor Sechin, who is said to be in charge of the “Noah’s Ark” scheme. And the man would have a good relationship with Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
Continuation of strikes in Ukraine
Vladimir Putin vowed on Thursday to continue attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, in a response he says to attacks by Kiev, particularly in Crimea, an annexed peninsula that Moscow has admitted is vulnerable. For his part, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russian forces of intensively mining and capturing the areas they left during their withdrawals, assuring that “mine terrorism will be one of the charges against Russia”.
