An assassination attempt against bloody Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin was made shortly after he ordered the Russian military to invade Ukraine, the head of Ukrainian military intelligence revealed.
Putin Survived Assassination Attempt After Invading Ukraine
The announcement by Kyrylo Budanov, head of the Chief Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, claims the attempt on Putin’s life was made about two months ago.
Exactly three months ago, on February 24, Putin sent about 200,000 Russian soldiers to invade Ukraine.
While its military is getting beaten in Ukraine, Russia’s economy is being mercilessly pummeled by western sanctions.
Ukrainians appear to have a wide espionage network inside Putin’s paradise where their spies have been setting fire to key Russian military factors and research centers.
However, it is alleged that in spite of the spies and motivation to take out the Russian tyrant, it was not Ukrainians who tried to assassinate Putin about two months ago.
Ukraine's defense intelligence chief said Putin survived an assassination attempt two months ago. If Russia loses this war, he said, Putin will be removed from power by the end of the year. https://t.co/nDnXDgVNhk

The head of Ukrainian military intelligence says "representatives of the Caucasus" carried out a "completely unsuccessful" assassination attempt on Putin two months ago https://t.co/Ha97D6RHzT

It May Have Been the Chechen
According to Ukraine’s military intelligence chief, it was “representatives of the Caucasus” who tried to murder the Russian autocrat.
While the region of the Caucasus Mountains encompasses the nations of Armenia, the reference is usually taken to mean Chechnya and the Chechens.
Chechnya fought two prolonged, bloody, and ultimately unsuccessful wars for independence from Russia in the 1990s.
Even though at present, Chechnya is ruled by the clan of Ramzan Kadyrov, which is fully loyal to Moscow and personally loyal to Putin, there are plenty of other Chechens who would have motivation to kill the president of Russia.
Chechens under the command of Ramzan Kadyrov, whom Putin called his “spiritual son,” are also believed to be the Russian tyrant’s last line of defense as bodyguards.
According to Budanov, Putin got attacked; while the assassination attempt was “absolutely unsuccessful,” the remarkable thing about it is “it really happened”.
He insisted this event “took place,” even though there was “no publicity about” it.
It remains unclear whether the alleged assassination attempt against the Moscow autocrat was directly motivated by his invasion of Ukraine.
If the Ukrainian intelligence information is correct, the assassination attempt in question would be the first known attempt on the life of the Russian president since he took office in 2000.
There has been no information about Ukraine trying or at least plotting to assassinate Putin.
However, the Moscow leader himself sent numerous teams of assassins, including Chechens, to try to kill or seize Ukraine’s brave leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his family, but to no avail.
In the meantime, some of Putin’s most hawkish apparatchiks and propagandists have issued new, pathetic nuclear war threats against the West.
Meanwhile, alleged Kremlin insiders claim the tyrant has recently been “out of office” on health grounds.

The Russian Telegram Channel General SVR claims that Putin went through surgery in the middle of the night between May 16-17. He does not state what surgery, but other rumors claim that it was abdomen cancer. Allegedly, Putin was out of reach May 17-19 for all but N. Patrushev.
