There are signs of growing discontent among the political and security elite in Moscow, as the war in Ukraine failed to give Russia the quick victory it wanted.

A small group of investigative journalists has managed to pierce the veil of secrecy around those officials.

Among them, Andrei Soldatov, founder and editor of the Agentura website which tracks Russia’s intelligence services.

In this week’s Conflict Zone, Soldatov tells host Tim Sebastian he doesn’t believe Russian President Vladimir Putin can survive the war in the long term.

“People inside (the security services) are really not happy with the way the war is going. And they blame just one guy — Vladimir Putin — for that,” he says.

Conflict Zone is Deutsche Welle’s top political interview.

Every week, our hosts Tim Sebastian and Sarah Kelly are face to face with global decision-makers, seeking straight answers to straight questions, putting the spotlight on controversial issues and calling the powerful to account.
