Experts are thinking over 'post-Putin' scenarios, Bild newspaper says. Western strategists believe that Russian oligarchs, who lost a lot of profits as a result of the sanctions, will force Putin to resign by the end of 2015. They will try to "reboot the country in order to save Russia".
According to the newspaper, German officials consider the possibility that Putin will be overthrown. In particular, a foreign policy expert of the Christian Democratic Union Karl-Georg Velman believes that the economic and social crisis in Russia creates a growing threat to the Putin's environment. Western experts predict that Russia's GDP gap will reach 4.5% in 2015.
