Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin believes that the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, could become Vladimir Putin’s main rival in the presidential election.
This is reported by the NPF, citing “Dialogue. AU”.
Political analyst Dmitry Oreshkin believes that the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, could become a serious contender for Vladimir Putin in the presidential election. The political scientist noted that the rating of the mayor of Moscow increased significantly during the coronavirus pandemic in the Russian Federation, unlike the rating of Vladimir Putin.
According to the political scientist, if Sobyanin will lead his own game in the struggle for power, it will become clear in September. According to Oreshkin, if Sobyanin remains mayor of Moscow, this will indicate that he has no ambition to become president of the Russian Federation.
Oreshkin noted that Putin is now afraid of competitors due to a downgrade. According to a Russian political scientist, the leader of the Kremlin could “remove the mayor of Moscow from the game”.
Another obstacle for Sobyanin on the way to power, Oreshkin said, could be the lack of support from the political elite. The political scientist believes that in the event of an open fight for the presidency between Vladimir Putin and Sergei Sobyanin, Russian officials will support President Putin.
