The Russian opposition forms a “parallel parliament” with the “armed resistance” to fight against Putin

A member of Russia’s opposition party announced on Thursday that they are forming a parallel parliament with “armed resistance” to fight President Vladimir Putin’s regime, according to a report.

In an exclusive interview with the Kyiv Post, prominent Russian politician Ilya Ponomarev said the parallel parliament will serve as “Russia’s interim administration.” But he added that it is still in its early stages and needs to grow further to become an effective alternative to Putin’s government.

“This is happening for the first time in the history of Russia. We will form a parallel parliament, which will become Russia’s interim administration. It will be up to Ukraine and other nations to recognize it as an alternative to Putin. The established organization should develop armed resistance and fight effectively against Putin,” Ponomarev said.

“The partisan movement in Russia is growing, but it is at a very early stage and we need to multiply tenfold to become effective. We are at the beginning of this path, but I don’t think it will take too long.” Putin recently celebrated his birthday. I’m sure it will be his last in power.”

Asked if he thinks a military coup in Russia is possible, Ponomarev said it was unlikely due to the “considerable cowardice” of the Russian military. However, he noted that Putin’s government could see a different kind of coup d’état – specifically one launched by Russian elites and civilians.

Ponomarev’s comments come as the war in Ukraine enters its ninth month. In recent months, Russia has struggled to hold the occupied territories amid Ukraine’s fierce counteroffensive. In the past month alone, the Ukrainian military successfully liberated more than 600 settlements across the country, including 75 areas in the Kherson region and 502 settlements in the Kharkiv region.

More than 43 settlements have been liberated in Donestk and Luhansk, Reuters reported, citing Ukraine’s Ministry for the Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories.

In addition to the loss of land in the occupied territories, the death toll from the Russian military has also continued to rise. According to estimates by Ukraine’s Defense Ministry, 66,650 Russian military personnel have died in the war as of Thursday.
