    Kremlin Whistle-Blower: ‘Putin Has No Option
    But To Stay In Power’

    “Kolesnikov goes so far as to suggest that Russia’s
    campaign in Ukraine may be motivated not by
    imperialist nostalgia but by Putin’s desperation
    to keep critics distracted from his massive
    corruption.”

    “If the Russian leader feels truly threatened, he
    adds, he may even resort to playing the nuclear
    card. “Two years ago, any suggestion that war
    would break out in the center of Europe and
    thousands of people would die seemed like
    absolute nonsense,” Kolesnikov says. “Today it’s
    an objective reality. And we can say the same
    thing about the possibility of using nuclear
    weapons. Maybe it’s unlikely, but it’s no longer
    nonsense.”
