Stand Vladimir Putin died? Then the war between Ukraine and Russia would end. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky replied to American TV host David Letterman that he asked him what would happen if the Russian president dies
“Suppose Putin catches a cold and dies, or accidentally falls out of a window and dies, would the war continue?” asked the interviewer, as reported by Ukrainska Pravda, in an interview made for a special on Netflix. “No – Zelensky replied – there would be no war. The authoritarian regime is terrible. There is a high risk that everything will be decided by one person. So when the person leaves, all the institutions stop. Something similar happened in the Soviet Union. Everything has stopped. I think if he were gone it would be difficult for them. They should focus on domestic policy, not foreign policy”.
Meanwhile, Moscow has announced that a telephone conversation between Putin and the French Emmanuel Macron has not yet been scheduled, as announced in a press release by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, quoted by the Tass agency. “No, there are no plans” for a talk between the two leaders, said the Kremlin spokesman, noting that “so far there have been no initiatives from the French side”. In early December, Macron announced that he would “soon” speak to Putin on issues relating to the safety of “civil nuclear power” and the Zaporizhzhia plant.
