Staunton, Nov. 22 – Since the pandemic and even more since Vladimir Putin began talking about nuclear war, the Kremlin leader has been spending his time in bunkers, isolated from all but the closest staff members and sitting far apart from them even when they do appear. Indeed, his self-isolation in bunkers and long tables have become the stuff of Russian anecdote
Two of the bunkers, one deep under the Kremlin and a second near Moscow State University, Roman Feshchenko of Ukraine’s Novoye Vremya says, were described by American intelligence 30 years ago as was the underground train line connecting them (nv.ua/world/countries/gde-nahoditsya-putin-pyat-podzemnyh-bunkerov-diktatora-karta-poslednie-novosti-50285929.html
At a time when many Russians are seeking information on bomb shelters for themselves or even attempting to have them constructed, such information about their leader’s capacious arrangements is certain to offend many (windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2022/11/russians-near-ukrainian-border-want-to.html).
At the very least, it will do Putin’s reputation as a courageous figure little good.
