While a report from the US think tank Stratfor envisions Russia collapsing within the next 10 years, many experts find this idea laughable and note that it may even be a mask for the US’s true intentions.
Russian, Chinese and Venezuelan geopolitics experts commenting on Stratfor’s predictions that Russia will fall apart over the next decade have told Sputnik that the report’s conclusions are hasty and careless, and that they are based more on wishful thinking and daydreaming than any real analytical wherewithal.
Vladimir Kozin, the head of the Advisory Group to the Director of the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, notes that when it comes making predictions “about Russia’s disintegration, this is nothing more than wishful thinking. Let the gentlemen from Stratfor preserve this report as a souvenir for memory.”
However, Kozin also warns that the predictions made by the intelligence firm do reveal something about US intentions toward Russia. Commenting that Stratfor “works closely with the CIA, which has always led a campaign against Russia,” Kozin notes that the predictions about Russia “supposedly falling apart on our own” hide specific plans for actions aimed against the Russian government. As a result, Kozin believes that “in order to ensure that attacks against us remain fruitless, we must consider the [report’s] conclusions carefully.”
