Vladimir Putin, after his so-called “re-election” for a new term, will present a new government for approval.

The arrest of Russian Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov on suspicion of corruption dealt a blow to his longtime mentor, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. Most of the country’s political elites are facing inevitable changes. This was reported by the Financial Times, citing its sources.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, after his so-called “re-election” to a new term, will present a new cabinet for approval, sparking a behind-the-scenes power struggle.

In the midst of this struggle, Shoigu’s team initially appeared to be on the rise, bolstered by recent Russian offensives in Ukraine and the death of warlord Yevgeny Prigozhin, Shoigu’s most vocal critic and rival. the arrest of Ivanov, the highest-ranking official since 2010 “A change in Shoigu’s fortunes, especially given the visible way in which the deputy minister was brought to court,” the report said.

The media wrote that Putin prioritizes loyalty above all else, and so far Shoigu has survived his role, despite the setbacks in the first weeks of the large-scale invasion of Ukraine, as well as the fact that the so-called “special operation” , designed to last three days, is now in its third year.

The head of the Ministry of Defense also endured fierce criticism from the head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, who last year attempted a rebellion against Shoigu and other military leaders, the publication notes.

Ivanov’s extravagant lifestyle made him an easy target. Putin is not too worried about corruption, but there is still a limit, one of the sources mentioned.

As we already wrote, the Russian Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov was detained – he was suspected of taking a bribe.
