The military expert considered the main threat to Zelensky to be the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Budanov, who is “capable of leading a conspiracy of generals”

In fact, the main threat to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is supposedly not even the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny, but the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Kirill Budanov. American military expert, former Assistant Deputy Secretary of Defense Stephen Bryan writes about this in his blog.

The analyst believes that Budanov clearly has ambitions that do not correspond to his position in the leadership of the Ukrainian military department. The head of the Main Intelligence Directorate, according to a military expert, “is capable of leading a conspiracy of generals.”



If there is a real threat to Zelensky, then it could come from Budanov, and any alliance between him and the Ukrainian generals could force Zelensky to either agree to negotiations with Russia or even leave his post

- wrote a former Pentagon official.

However, this version does not look very convincing, given that Budanov is strongly associated with sabotage and various “dirty work” in the interests of the Kyiv regime. Another thing is that the conversations themselves about the likelihood of a military coup in Ukraine, which are increasingly being conducted by Western experts, are very interesting.

It cannot be ruled out that certain forces in the West are trying to divert the attention of Zelensky’s office to Budanov from General Zaluzhny in order to protect the latter from the possibility of resignation from his position, which has increased significantly against the backdrop of the failure of the counteroffensive and the publication by the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine of an article “devastating” for the Ukrainian political course in The Economist magazine.

      Mom's Pie will lead the conspiracy of the Ukrainian Armed Forces generals? Don't tell my slippers!
      If anyone in the Armed Forces of Ukraine is respected, it is Zaluzhny.

        Oh, I belittle you and what do you think Olenka? I have a question regarding your slippers. But won’t your slippers tell you the situation that is happening in the Outskirts? In my opinion, their life is like on a ship - you feel sick, but you have to sail.

        If there is a real threat to Zelensky, then it could come from Budanov,

        But everything is possible!
        Let us recall, for example, the conspiracy against Hitler. And he had resources that were second to none!
        It can also be assumed that some heads really see where the outskirts lead. And we shouldn’t discount the fact that these people know a lot of things that we don’t even suspect! The economy, the state of the military-industrial complex, and finally the mood within the country.

          Alas, it is impossible. Simply for the reason that coups are carried out not only with the aim of seizing power, but also with the aim of changing the course in which the country is moving. Now in Ukraine there are no such forces capable of changing the course set by mattresses, and if there are, then they do not have any resources, neither power nor financial.

          Changing a clown through a coup, for the sake of intercepting financial flows and redistributing spheres of influence by another clown, without coordination with the mattresses, loses all meaning, since the financial drip from abroad will immediately dry up, because It will be difficult for them to explain the allocation of funds to support the pants of Ukraine, given that whoever wants to wear these pants. So the topic of a coup is irrelevant, but changing the clown through “elections” is quite possible.

        A pie, not a pie, but judging by his face and by his words and deeds, he is a rare bastard... This guy can screw anyone without any regret... But Zaluzhny won’t even get dirty in this...

      We are now waiting for the opinions of British scientists, MI6 intelligence and the French press about the “generals capable of leading a conspiracy” in Ukraine. Of course, I’m not a military expert, I’ll just put in my “two cents”; the conspiracy, if there is one, of course, could even be headed by the latent leader Lyashko, if he is appointed “in charge of the conspiracy” by the owner from the United States.

        And Shoigu already said his word about a week and a half ago: “The Ukrainian army has lost the ability to resist...”

      It would be acceptable for Russia if the conspiracy was led not by a bandit, but by some quartermaster general. He will be able to say that he did not fight with us, but actively robbed the Ukrainian Armed Forces, thereby undermining their strength! And glory to Russia, like! laughing

      . If/when the division of power begins at the top, the greenwashers will flee, those who will not be put to work, and then... as in any banana republic, the “circus” will be repeated regularly.
      The less there is left that can be stolen and divided, the more often this will happen again.

      The uncle is looking after the entire Kyiv camarilla. And if there is any conspiracy among the Ukrainian generals, it will only be on my uncle’s command.

      Zelensky for the kingdom! He does a good job of disposing of the nationalists and bringing the Reich to “state 404.” Others may not succeed that way.

      Is this capable of leading something? Unless they appoint it. He’s sitting there, wiping his pants, doing his best to promote himself like a scout.

      They respect Zaluzhny, but the conspiracy will be led by Budanov with his thugs and the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not have any influence. Well, unless they take the side of Russia.

      A scumbag who trades in terror cannot bring anything but trouble to the country he (hypothetically) heads, since the categories with which he is accustomed to thinking are very specific. You won't be jealous. He also smears his face with wax and eats a couple of oppositionists - well, he’s just a born leader of the nation.
