Intel Chief Details Putin Assassination Attempt Just Weeks Ago

The mood in Moscow is tense, as Russia’s unjust and failing invasion of Ukraine continues to exert ever more pressure on an already-deflated Kremlin.

Vladimir Putin, whose rumored terminal cancer diagnosis appears to be subtly corroborated by his nonsensical actions and erratic behavior, is seeing a nigh-unprecendeted rebuke from his normally docile citizens.  This is almost always a harbinger of doom for dictators and tyrants, and there is still the possibility that somebody beats cancer to the punch.

Just weeks ago, Putin learned this the hard way.

The head of Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin survived an assassination attempt two months ago.

Speaking to the Ukrainian news outlet Pravda Ukraine, Maj. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov said there was an “unsuccessful” attempt against the Kremlin leader’s life at the start of Russia’s brutal invasion of its neighbor.

The suggestion was bold.

“Putin was assassinated,” Budanov told the news outlet. “He was even attacked in the line of, as they say, representatives of the Caucasus not so long ago. This is nonpublic information. Absolutely unsuccessful attempt, but it really took place. … It was about two months ago.”

Putin has survived a number of attempted assassinations over the years, but Russian media is so tightly controlled by the Kremlin that the details of these attacks are still somewhat vague.
