The explosion on the Crimean bridge marks the beginning of an era of confrontation between security forces in Russia. In particular, they are trying to identify the person responsible for the failure of the "special operation" in Ukraine. This was stated by the advisor to the head of the President's Office, Mykhailo Podolyak, on the air of the telethon.
"Today we see a heated phase of a very, very powerful confrontation between various special services, because if we are talking about the Ministry of Defense, it is first of all the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, and on the other hand - the FSB," Podolyak noted.
He noted that the FSB lost its reputation among the top brass of Putin's regime even at the beginning of the full-scale invasion, when their propaganda program about "capturing Kyiv in 3 days" failed. But now the FSB has an opportunity for revenge and has begun to put pressure on the head of the Ministry of Defense Sergei Shoigu, the chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov and other Russian generals. In particular, there were repeated calls for the arrest of representatives of the Russian generals.
"On the other hand, the Ministry of Defense began to somehow defend itself. And, in our opinion, everything that happened on the Kerch bridge tonight is a specific special operation of one of the Russian special services... And, thus, we can see the manifestation of a specific conflict between security forces , which speaks of a very important thing - today a new era has begun in Russia - the era of confrontation with the Russian security forces," Podolyak emphasized.
He explained that now the security forces in the Russian Federation are trying to identify the culprits of the failure of the Russian "special military operation" and want to arrest their opponents in order to "take certain places after the arrival of the new elite."
It will be recalled that earlier Podoliak reacted to the information about the bridge explosion with a message on Twitter.
"Crimea, the bridge, the beginning. Everything illegal must be destroyed, everything stolen must be returned to Ukraine, everything belonging to the Russian occupation must be expelled," he wrote.
