Vladimir Putin will face a “revolution” and “coup attempt” in Russia if the war in Ukraine continues on its current course, the Russian President’s former speechwriter told Daily Express US.

Russia and Ukraine continue to fight in the east of the country, with Moscow’s troops planning a new offensive.

The war has reached a state of deadlock on the frontline with neither side able to make significant progress.

Abbas Gallyamov, Putin’s former speechwriter, believes that anti-war sentiment is growing in Russia, and could eventually lead to a rebellion against the Kremlin.

He said: “Putin is clearly losing from the perspective of the domestic and Russian public opinion. The anti-war sentiment is growing.

“Where we are now is where we were between 1914 and 1917, we are headed for a revolution. So when one looks at the situation in Ukraine, you should remember that it is not always the frontline that determines the outcome of the war, there are other factors.

Russia dropped out of the First World War because there was a revolution back at home.

“I’m not saying there will be a revolution tomorrow, but that is where we are headed. If the war continues the way it is, it will end up in some sort of popular revolution or coup attempt.

“We saw Prigozhin’s mutiny, so we see how weak Russia‘s political system is. Prigozhin was not an enemy of the system, he was in the system.”

In June 2023, Priogzohin and his Wagner mercenaries threatened to march to Moscow before a settlement was reached. Then, in August, Prigozhn was confirmed dead after he was killed in a plane crash.

Many believed Putin was behind Prigozhin’s sudden death.

Wives of Russian soldiers have also organised protests in recent months calling on their husbands to be brought home. In early February, dozens of these demonstrators were detained by police.

Anti-war candidate Boris Nadezhin also tried to run in the Russian elections this year, but he was barred from the race in what was almost certainly a crackdown from the Kremlin.

Following the decision, Nadezhin said: “You are not refusing me, but tens of millions of people who are hoping for change.

“Tens of millions of people here were going to vote for me. I am in second place after Putin.

“We will appeal not only the refusal itself but also the procedure of the signature verification and, at the same time, the federal law,”
