Following Russia's decision to launch a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine in February of 2022, experts have questioned President Vladimir Putin's plans for the next few years. In May, Sir Richard Dearlove, the former head of the British Secret Intelligence Service, predicted that Vladimir Putin will no longer serve as president of Russia by 2023 due to health issues. He also predicted that the Russian regime would collapse within 12-18 months of the invasion of Ukraine due to the U.S. and Europe's sanctions, the burden the conflict places on resources, and Russia's military performance.

Resolution Criteria
The question will resolve positively if at least two major news outlets report that Vladimir Putin is no longer the president of the Russian Federation on or before August 31, 2023.
