If the Russian leader Vladimir Putin dies, Russia's war against Ukraine will end, because the institutions of the occupying country will not work. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a special edition of the Netflix show "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction".
According to him, it should be stated that a large percentage of Russians believe in Putin.
"You know how to close the window and hide from the war. Shake it off. That's it. Not knowing where you live. Not recognizing reality. But there are people who are just afraid. Who understand reality, but are just afraid," Zelenskiy said.
He noted that in the event of Putin's death due to illness or an accident, there will be no war, because in an authoritarian regime, a lot depends on one person.
"Therefore, when such a person leaves, the institutions stop. Such was the time in the USSR. Everything stopped. It will be difficult for them. They will deal with domestic policy, not foreign policy," the head of state said.
