Putin praised “constitutional fraud” in the West


The well-known in the West "grant-eater" anti-adviser Pavel Kimovich Baev (born 1957, Vladivostok) on the website of the American "non-governmental" organization of frankly Russophobic orientation The Jamestown Foundation (TJF) told the public that the Russian leader Vladimir Putin "brought to naught all further speculation about a change of leadership in Russia. "


For understanding, it should be noted that Baev works as a senior “researcher” at the International Institute for Peace Research in Oslo (PRIO). He is considered a “Norwegian” political scientist and security specialist, and he also works part-time at the Brookings Institution (Washington) and the French Institute for International Relations (IFRI) at the Russia / CIS Center.

The intricate intrigue with the revision of the Russian Constitution came to a logical, but shockingly abrupt end on March 10, distracting the elites and society as a whole from worrying about the coronavirus pandemic and pushing them to reflect on the new political reality

- writes the "expert."

According to Baev, Putin set in motion the constitutional debate at the beginning of 2020, in his message to the Federal Assembly. After that, amendments to the Constitution appeared, including the mention of “God Almighty”. However, some clarity came relatively recently, when in the State Duma the first woman-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova proposed to reset the number of presidential terms. After which Putin expressed his approval.

The author believes that Putin has not yet announced his desire to run for the next presidential election in 2024 because he wants to maintain at least a drop of uncertainty. Moreover, the country's elite considers him the only real candidate in the 2030 elections.

The Kremlin’s own rather lackluster performance reflects not so much a master strike at the end of the “special operation” as a reluctant choice in favor of a suboptimal solution

- sure Bayev.

The "expert" suggested that Putin, instead of eliminating all speculation about the successor, created many much deeper political problems. After all, the president’s promise to ensure political stability in Russia was voiced at the most inopportune moment - when the country faced large economic problems. At the same time, officials are trying to convince the population that everything will be fine.

The mismanagement of the economy is an integral feature of Putin's system of government, and the new government can only resort to statistics to mask the scale of damage, and then take the blame for it (president - ed.)

- thinks Bayev.

The author also drew attention to the fact that Putin is an ideal defender of the interests of "hard security" in Russia. Therefore, all the security forces are on his side. But the government has yet to calculate the losses from the devaluation of oil exports.

As for Russian society, according to Baev, it is disoriented and discouraged. Therefore, "indecent hasty legislation" gives Putin the opportunity to manipulate the next presidential election. Moreover, Putin is going to strengthen public support for the “pseudo plebiscite” before April 22, 2020. In conclusion, Bayev called Putin’s rule corrupt, and assessed the amendments to the Basic Law as “constitutional fraud”.

    In my opinion, history has not yet known cases of "unanimous" voting for 400 amendments to the Constitution in all institutions within a few days? !! Almost none of the State Duma or regional meetings said that people need more time to even consider and approve safety instructions by professionals, and in a couple of days we adopt hundreds of amendments to the Constitution, according to which the country will live for decades !!!!!

      Yes you are a pessimist, however! What are the “decades” !!! In a couple of years or something else they will add or partially remove / change today-adopted ... !!!
      Russia is doing the right thing, turning away from the West - it “outgrew” it ....

        Your naivety (commitment?) Is amazing, do you really think that the main meaning of this "package" is -

        ... Russia does, turning away from the West.

        - she “outgrew” it ....? !!

          Russia has “outgrown” the West ...

          - the sarcastic comment you did not understand that Russia does not need democracy! At all! In no country with sane government and population:
          1. will not change the constitution on 400 (just idiocy) points (!)
          2. will not be allowed to make changes to artists / churches / janitors ....
          3. The Constitutional Court will complete the consideration of 400 (!) Changes in 2 (?) Days.
          US Constitution - 5 pages. Changes / additions were adopted (one at a time, in different years) and it was required to approve from 1 year to 10 years.
          I mean, what Russia is doing right, having turned away from the West, its place in Asia is among the sultans, padishahs, kings, dictators ...
          The people of Russia can speak only in the kitchen - a half-empty refrigerator is the best agitator / listener.

    Someone writes such shitty little articles, of course, whole "factories" work for this. But is the site administration so unprincipled and not ashamed to retype something like this, do they really not understand the essence of what is happening? All this remains on the Internet forever, because then the children will ask dads why you did not think about our future?

    Let the West understand its fraud. They have there with external prosperity "the field is not plowed." But such slippery and vile personalities as Pavel Kimovich Baev do not make the weather, their lot, like a cowardly mongrel, bark passers-by because of the fence.

        Such people should not live. They have a wallet instead of conscience. If something is not clear, read his biography. True, there are several of them, well, for such people this is normal.

    All right Bayev broadcasts. Not ours, but if the case ... close your eyes, plug your ears ??? For 20 years, a new worthy leader has not grown in the country ... have ceased to believe in the word of authority ... in the minds of hopelessness and devastation. Conscience is no longer in honor ???

    Soviet power is bad ... Capitalism, which they helped create, is bad again! These "experts" will not please! Like Arkharov and Garik - the populist-s pumped up ... not that populist-s!

    Against the West (all together), Navalny, Khodorkovsky and the Gudkovs (all with their shrill servants).

              Well, what can you do if nothing changes for you. I look, there suddenly abruptly appeared a whole company of "approvers". Looks like they threw all the forces on a special team, is it an important thing? How many accounts do you manage to service yourself at the same time, what is your norm for normal production? Remember, in Soviet times, there was a movement of "multi-station weavers", I hope they learned their experience?

                Yes, all of us are “condemned” to us.
                But for you - "the people are not the same."
                No need to break away from the people, even for the bloody 30 pieces of silver from Khadorkovsky. Bloody money does not bring happiness, especially to your children.
