In the current situation, the President of Russia has every reason to carry out a large-scale purge of the Russian elite.
Political analyst Yevgeny Satanovsky spoke about it on his Telegram channel, the TELMENEWS.RU news agency reports.
According to him, the current situation demands unprecedented unity from all representatives of the ruling elite, especially senior Russian officials and businessmen, called oligarchs, to help their state.
However, as the expert noted, the whole of last year and the beginning of the current year showed that the top flight does not have much agility in this matter. The President constantly comes to push and stimulate her in every possible way. So far, judging by Vladimir Putin’s rhetoric, he is using the “carrot”.
