The Russians are looking for contacts with Ukraine and other countries to obtain possible security guarantees after the defeat of Russia.
“They are definitely looking for ways out. And not only with Ukraine. The geography in which they are trying to obtain personal security guarantees for themselves, for their fortunes, for their families is quite wide,” Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, said.
Yusov noted that the Russians primarily make these efforts in order to avoid possible future prosecution.
“Now this mostly concerns the conditional business elite, but there are already also representatives of the political segment of the Kremlin’s senior group. This process will only gain momentum,” Yusov said.
According to the forecast of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, the greater the successes of the Ukrainian security and defence forces, the more such contacts there will be.
“Ukraine certainly uses any tools, the most creative approaches, in order to speed up the liberation of our territories, bringing the aggressor state to justice. Many contacts and operations are being implemented, which we cannot talk about now. But after the victory, believe me, there will be a lot of interesting things,” Yusov concluded.
