Valery Klochok, a political expert and head of the Center for Public Analysis "Vezh", believes that the current Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin will come to power after Vladimir Putin.
He expressed this opinion for Channel 24.
As Klochok added, the leader of the People's Republic of China already had a meeting with Putin's potential successor.
"There is another successor that has been formed over the past two years - this is the prime minister.
And Putin himself can agree to him.
I mean Mishustin. Yes, there is a simple justification in that part - economic cooperation. The head of the government will go to China to sign, possibly together with Putin, the "Power of Siberia 2" project not in Russia, but in Beijing on Beijing's terms, so that Russia would bring gas there," he said.
However, the expert does not rule out that the candidates to replace Putin may be different.
So no scenario can be underestimated.
We will remind, the representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, said that the Kremlin is actively looking for Putin's replacement.
