Putin, the autocrat, comes of age – POLITICO

But it also led him to suffer from “delusional beliefs” about the situation in his country, as his subordinates feared sharing information that could be seen as negative, Umarov said.

He added that while there are clear parallels today between the autocracies of Central Asian countries and those of Russia, there is also an important difference.

Speaking days before the Crocus terror attack, he said “these countries had not reported results this high after a coup attempt, a hugely popular opposition leader dying in prison, people protesting or a war that put the country under tension.

“Rather than reflecting genuine consolidation, there is a sense that Putin is trying to overcompensate for the destabilized situation in his country,” Umarov said.

Not ISIS

Two days after the attack, a more confident Putin appeared on television again. This time he spoke of “radical Islamists” who had acted on instructions from the “neo-Nazi regime in kyiv”.

By that time, its propagandists had already found culprits in Ukraine, Britain and the United States, who had apparently used radical Islamists to cover their tracks.
