Putin wants to unseat Poroshenko by the end of next year – former advisor

Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, wants to create a pro-Kremlin bloc within the new Ukrainian parliament. Its objective will be to bring down Petro Poroshenko, according to Putin’s former advisor, Andrei Illarionov as per the Voice of America.

According to Illarionov, there are plenty of anti-Ukrainian agents running for seats in parliament, including among them the candidates running from the democratic bloc.

Illarionov claims that Putin has set a goal to create a large enough bloc that would derail the work of the parliament.

Moreover, the former advisor gives the deadline that Putin has set for unseating President Poroshenko ats the end of 2015.

“The Kremlin has become more sophisticated, more creative, and more skillful, and naturally has more resources at its disposal. In place of ‘little green men’ they have switched to ‘green disputes.’ And of course on a broader scale, certainly not on a lesser scale,” stated Illarionov.

Illarionov says that the Kremlin will not stop its efforts to destabilize Ukraine, no matter what happens.

He believes that through eight months of Putin’s encroachments it has become evident that neither the EU nor the United States are capable of repelling the objectives the Kremlin has.

“I think the next two months, and especially this winter and all the way to the end of next year, will be an especially dangerous time; b. Because all the available and as yet unavailable resources will be marshaled during this period toward bringing the plan to a close – the destruction of an independent, sovereign Ukraine,” predicts Illarionov.

He is convinced that Putin is set on destroying Ukraine before the next presidential elections in the United States, before 2017. Illarionov believes Barack Obama lacks the will to stop Putin’s determination to grab land and to subjugate people.
