For anyone really following the Russia saga:
Sources are still reporting that Viktor Zolotov is dead. If this is true…wow. It’s pretty telling on what’s happening.
In addition to being Putin’s Chief Bodyguard he’s also the first Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs….Chief of the troops of the Russian Interior Ministry. If there is unrest from within…it’s his job to put it down. It’s also rumored that Putin was about to name Zolotov head of the FSB. One of his duties is holding the nuclear “black box”.
If I’m Sergei Shoigu and my plan is to undertake a coup while keeping Putin in power as a puppet until his term runs out….I take out Zolotov before anything else.
It’s all speculation at this point….but if Zolotov is indeed dead something is rotten.
