Polish media: Putin is no longer the biggest force in Russia


The COVID-19 epidemic struck Russia at a very delicate moment for Vladimir Putin, writes the Polish Internet portal Onet. She forced the Russian president to postpone the referendum, which was supposed to approve amendments to the Constitution. Thanks to them, he could rule another 12 years, after 2024.


Last month, the Russian parliament passed constitutional amendments, potentially extending Putin’s rule until 2036. A referendum was scheduled for April 22 to consolidate the reform, but it was postponed.

Putin, who celebrated the 20th anniversary of his rise to power on New Year's Eve, should step down from his post in 2024. However, Russian lawmakers decided that for national security, including in the context of a global pandemic, Putin should be left at the head of the country for another 12 years.

In the situation of current problems and threats for the whole world, it must be said that oil and gas are no longer our greatest strength. Our biggest power is Putin

- State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said.

When the situation with coronavirus in Russia worsened, President Vladimir Putin chose to fade into the background. He entrusted the immediate subordinates with the duty to inform the citizens of “bad news».

For example, in Moscow, the mayor of the city, Sergei Sobyanin, was appointed responsible, and in the whole country, the recently appointed Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Putin willingly shared power, because he himself does not know what is right and what is not in such circumstances

- considers Konstantin Gase, political Carnegie Center Analyst.

Other analysts suggest that Putin is cautious because he does not want to be associated with unpopular measures.

Thus, the Russian president can hardly be considered the greatest force in Russia now.

    must resign from his post in 2024.

    The logic is iron. laughing Yes, in four years he can hold a hundred referenda, another thing, his rating drops, his chatter without real deeds is already tired of everyone. Even if he was silent, since he can’t do anything (or doesn’t want to), he says everywhere that the economy is growing.

      Athenogen, you write nonsense here and you don’t even understand this. Where you saw or heard something that has not been done or is not being done, not everything on the ground depends only on the President. There are how many inept and incompetent Governors and Heads of Administrations in our country who successfully destroy and impede many reforms and changes for the better, although many of them have already been fired. Many were even jailed for corruption and loss of trust, but so far this is only a small fraction of the total !!!

        You write nonsense. What are the governors in the field ??? Then the supreme power is rotten through corruption. The Supreme are those who greet each day in the Kremlin’s hand with the president.

          The roller is old. The hunger is no longer working. I can’t say anything bad about Manturov, I don’t own such information. With Kozak, who dreams of living in Switzerland and received Bulgarian citizenship, this, of course, is fun. laughing Are you sure the information is reliable?
          If in general, then the problem exists. We will wait for changes, there is a proposal with dual citizenship to not hold a number of posts.

            Yes, only with the proposal to not hold posts with dual citizenship will we get the president’s eternal rule and his clique. There was a president - he became a king. Personally, I do not believe that there is at least someone honest who wants to do something for the people, for the country, as soon as they break through to the post, they immediately begin to master the money.

              Is there "not there"? Where is this honest disinterested candidate? Who do you believe in?

                But 20 years ago, you saw a moth in a box and immediately believed in it? There are 145 million people in Russia, and among them there are very worthy people. But who will allow them into power, which is self-serving, criminal and thoroughly consumed by the rust of corruption?

                  Is it you, by chance, yourself, that you consider honest and disinterested? Most of them squeal that everything is bought and is not allowed anywhere by those who are unable to get to the feeder.
                  Who are these people? Just say a name? Who is this worthy candidate who is not allowed to power?

        But Putin himself appointed them, according to the criterion of loyalty to power, and did not choose the people.

          Do you want to choose ministers? Or plenipotentiaries of the president?

        Haaaaaaaaa! And who appoints these governors, holy spirit, or what? They have eaten the entire baldness with endless displays of Putin's interviews with future and current governors, ministers and other figures from the Government ... to say - don't toss the bags!

    Says Konstantin Gaze, a political analyst at the Carnegie Center.

    Baba Klava, from a neighboring porch and taxi driver Mamed, are more authoritative analysts.
    By the way, this is still Gorenina did not give her forecast.

    When the situation with coronavirus in Russia worsened, President Vladimir Putin chose to fade into the background.
    For example, in Moscow, the mayor of the city, Sergei Sobyanin, was appointed responsible, and in the whole country, the recently appointed Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

    - Yes, in fact, the prime minister always has to deal with internal economic, industrial and other state organizational affairs ... - This is the worthless prime minister D.A. Medvedev only spent his time in this position and did not do state affairs at all ...

    Polish media: Putin is no longer the biggest force in Russia

    - As for “not the greatest power in Russia” .., then this is not so ...- as it was ... - so it remains ...
    - But, personally, I have already suggested that Russia’s policy towards China should change quite soon ... - And here is where Putin must show his full "great strength" ...
    - But how will everything happen in real life ... - it will only show time ... - and pretty soon ...

    Let the Poles think and act in accordance with their capabilities and abilities. In Russian affairs, they have nothing to do, it’s possible to get hands and don’t look at their NATO.

    Paradox:

    .. The Russian president can hardly be considered the greatest force in Russia now.

    - but can be considered the most significant and influential person in the world political arena.

    It's funny if Putin is already one, then why write about him? Anyway, what do we care about some Polish “thinkers” or Amer’s analysts in the form of Bloomberg? Here, someone from the local here itchy hands and incontinence of verbal diarrhea. Every day spread all obscene dregs!

    The article is interesting only because the POLAND MYTHS OF POLAND distort their brains. They came up with Tataria, with which the Poles, as the last parapet of Europe, have been fighting for all Europeans for the past 500 years. And hence their confidence that a fight for power between dictators should go in Karakoram. And that is the point of the article. Say, Putin surrendered the bear and now he is not the main one, if he does not command it. And the fact that Russia is a state where there is a certain order of government and Putin is legally elected and absolutely recognized by the whole country, whose authority is undeniable, does not occur to them! Putin can afford castling with Medvedev, and the parliamentary prime minister, and let the young steer.

    Mentality is Mentality. There is nothing to be done about it. There is such an Expression -

    Exposure is the flip side of swiftness ......

    This applies to the work of a scout in his profile .... That's why the Guarantor went into the “shadow”, so as not to be associated with unpopular measures, the List of system enterprises, where and who will receive financial assistance from the budget - where the Fonbet Bookmaker got on the list. ...... The people learned to compare the Words of the Guarantor - The Cases of the Guarantor, so now they can’t sit aside.
    While the Bunker sheltered the Guarantor, the Boyars from the Cabinet of Ministers and the Oligarch Bureau decided to pick up the treasury a bit - after all, the genes are affecting, got away with it in the 90s, and maybe it’s going on a ride now.

    ... the Russian president is now hardly possible count the greatest power in Russia.

    And what to consider him, he is one, and the strength, respectively, is also one. So, not the largest, but the only one.
