Putin stepping down? Do you think that has a direct link to his failure to take control of the USA?

Serious question. The US election results means his puppet has failed to deliver the full fascist takeover of America that he had hoped for. Isn't this news that he is planning to step down, just a little too much of a coincidence?

14. Evidently it's real

—the stepping down part at least. Not sure about the illness; that could be a cover. Timing is suspect.

4. Posted earlier he has Parkinson's.

And it's probably why he got the Duma to pass a law that made Russian Presidents immune from prosecution.

5. Putin retiring

simply means he's stolen enough , more than he can ever hope to need. Now he needs to protect himself and his assets.

7. No. He didn't need to take over the US. Just weaken us, and he did.

I believe he really is sick. And if he is, if he wants to continue his plans, smartest move is to hand pick his successor abd step down early.

Could just be Surkovian disinformation meant for nothing more than confusing people.

17. The same thought occurred to me: ETTD

Putin will never be able to have a working relationship with Biden after all the shit he's done for Trump. Add Putin to the long list of those who went all in on Trump, only to have it blow up in their faces.

19. As usual

if this is true, it's all about money. Remember the warning at the end of the Obama administration about the cyber tools we had to respond to a cyber attack. Putin may be thinking claiming sickness may stop a decent man like Biden from lowering the hammer on him personally.

20. He may be signaling Trump to take a bow.

An unstable US is not good for Russia and that's all Pootie cares about.

He's repositioning his pieces to fit the situation.

Or, it's some sort of internal loyalty test having nothing to do with the US. Doubtful. The only certain thing is it has something to do with the long game. Which, they've always played.

no longer needed to pull Trumps strings.
