He also believes that Vladimir Putinsees enemies everywhere and his condition is not improving.

'He's entering the eighth decade of his life, and his psychological condition is not good. He is somewhat paranoid right now, and he sees or expects that his own inner circle, his own people, may rejoice to a certain degree that these failures are happening to him.'

Mr Feygin also believes that the outcome of the Ukraine War will likely topple the current government in Moscow and might even lead to a Russian civil war if Vladimir Putinrefuses to cede power, The US Express News reports.

'They could become part of that civil war scenario in Russia, which would likely include the military, the FSB and other inner circles that would resist losing power if Putin quits or is forced to leave his position.'
