Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime is said to be “stable” amid talks and speculations that the strongman is suffering from early signs of dementia and losing grip on his military operations in Ukraine. UK Chief of the Defense Staff Admiral Sir Tony Radakin warned that Russia remains to be a major threat to the world. Britain’s top military official said any anticipation of a change in regime by his detractors resulting from an assassination plot or ousting him from power is highly unlikely to happen and is merely "wishful thinking".

According to the Telegraph, Radakin’s recent interview on BBC One’s Sunday Morning Show painted a clear stand of the British military in viewing Putin’s reign as a relatively stable rule over the land and his people. "As military professionals, we see a relatively stable regime in Russia, President Putin has been able to quash any opposition, we see a hierarchy that is invested in President Putin and so nobody at the top has got the motivation to challenge President Putin, and that is bleak,” he explained.

Radakin went on to say that facing Russia’s threats and challenges is something the world has to endure for decades to come and that the next British Prime Minister should realize that Putin’s regime is the biggest threat to the UK considering its growing nuclear arsenal. The new Prime Minister will have to be given a brief on the current situation of the British armed forces, Radakin said, pointing out that they are still providing support to Ukraine and may have to step back to see a wider perspective of threats from Russia.

Although Russian land forces have greatly suffered casualties, this may only be a short-term impediment as the country continues to harness nuclear capabilities and technology.

“Russia continues to be a nuclear power, it's got cyber capabilities, it's got space capabilities, and it's got particular programs under water so it can threaten the underwater cables that allow the world's information to transit around the whole globe,” the Defense Chief added. Britain’s military is raring to get new upgrades with Radakin hopeful for an increase of 3% in GDP spending from the government to modernize its military defenses and enable better global impact.
