President Putin clearly fears a coup d’état at the Kremlin

The specter of palace revolution in Russia

  • A ranked United States Treasury official publicly characterized President Putin and his Kremlin elite as corrupt, as if to encourage his rivals
  • News revelations depicting the president’s alleged hidden wealth soon followed
  • The Panama Papers revelations upped the ante by detailing cronyism among Russia’s ruling elite
  • The Russian leader sought to dismiss the charges but soon announced the creation of a huge military force under his direct control
  • These and other clues indicate that Western political centers may be entertaining the idea of a palace revolution in Moscow

Even if such a scenario is not deemed highly probable, it is increasingly possible.

The Kremlin’s nervous reaction to these developments is hardly surprising.
