He has three potential escape routes......
He gets caught on the wrong side of another revolt in Russia.
He dies of "natural causes"
He dies at his own hand

Anyone placing bets on which one gets him first?

My bet:
If Putin's power should ever collapse, he will simply disappear. With enough money, protected by an ultra-loyal small Praetorian Guard, he adopts a new identity and goes into hiding somewhere in Russia. He had all ressources (FSB, police, government) and years to prepare for this event. He changes appearance, hair, beard growth. Those who know where he's hiding have been bribed with enough money to far exceed any reward.

The wanted war criminal and President of Bosnian Serbs Karadzic hid in Serbia for 12 years before arrest. With a full white beard and aged, he was unrecognizable. His military chief, Mladic, went into hiding in Serbia for 15 years. The Serbian government could not or did not want to find the gentlemen. And large circles of supporters of these ultra-nationalists exist in Serbia to this day.

Why should things be different in Russia with Putin?

While PooTin tries to strut his stuff things are not going so well for his equipment, cannon fodder and war criminals.

300,000 new troops couldn't get Russia's big offensive to work, and sending more to the front probably won't help, war experts say.

Even his ex-chef isn't feeling that positive these days, but then again he's stuck out on the front now.

PooTin is really scraping the bottom of his reserve barrels now.

Russia’s Weapons Game in Ukraine Hits a Dismal New Low.

Russia has taken Soviet-era tanks from the 1940s and 1950s out of storage for its war in Ukraine in the latest sign that the invasion is floundering, according to researchers from the Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT).

The weapons, T-54 tanks and either late T-54 or early T-55 tanks, are being sent on a train westward from Russia's Far East, according to photographs the CIT shared Wednesday. The trains are traveling from the 1295th Central Tank Repair and Storage Base in Arsenyev in Russia’s Primorsky region.

The apparent effort to rely on outdated tanks comes as Moscow is scrambling to replace thousands of weapons lost on the battlefield a year into the war. Russia has been reaching back into its supplies of old gear and weapons for months now, attempting to refurbish troops with weapons that might help them seize more territory in Ukraine. But the available artillery Russia has in stock is not up to snuff—and may only spell more trouble for Moscow's war effort, according to open-source intelligence site Oryx....

Just more proof that PooTin has well won the title of "Hitler V2.0" (so Donny, you lose another 1 yet again).

PooTin wanted a genocide-style “total cleansing” of Ukraine to subdue its people, leaked spy documents have revealed.

I wonder when those emails were first written, and when they were first leaked (there are no dates in either that article, or the original in The Sun). Did the USA have them when they were briefing that the invasion was imminent, before February 24 last year?

If so, couldn't - shouldn't - more have been done to nip it in the bud before now? At the very least, a public release to the United Nations.

Sorry, Wiggo, as a German I have to disagree. Hitler's and Germany's crimes in 1933-45 against millions were orders of magnitude worse. Putin's and Russia's incompetence will not put him on the scale of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot... ...as long as he keeps his fingers off the nuclear button...

PooTin needs more cannon fodder and war criminals.

Little PooTin's band of cannon fodder and war criminals are not fairing well at all.

Russia Misses Key Deadline Ahead of Ukraine Counteroffensive.

While Western intelligence has identified a core, embarrassing deficiency in the Russian army that’s contributing to its heavy losses in Ukraine.

PooTin has got what he didn't want.

Russia to respond to Finland's NATO ascension by 'strengthening' military on border.

But how is he going to do that when he's running out of cannon fodder, war criminals and hardware?

Meanwhile the Ukraine's crop forecast falls as farmers struggle with paddocks seeded with mines

And we're sending over some new toys for the Ukrainians to use.

Canberra-made remote weapons system to be sent to Ukraine in $120m direct military sale.

Then there's Why are Russia and Ukraine fighting so hard for the small city of Bakhmut?
