The US named the "desired successor" of Putin


Western political analysts never tire of wondering who might succeed Vladimir Putin as president of Russia. Ariel Cohen, the chief analyst of the Atlantic Council, shared his opinion with The Hill.


According to Cohen, the Americans should develop plans for a long-term strategy for working with a possible successor to Putin, since all reforms in Russia begin from the top - this is shown by the rich historical experience of the Russian Federation: Peter I, Catherine the Great, Stolypin, Gorbachev and other leaders of the country were the initiators of large-scale transformations.

The expert believes that in this respect it is reasonable for Washington to rely on Alexei Kudrin, who has a reputation as a "liberal" and at the same time upholds a "tough position." The former deputy prime minister and head of the Russian financial department "did not stain" himself with his intelligence service, is the initiator of many market reforms and has a bright charisma.

It would be prudent for the United States to start working with Kudrin's team on possible scenarios for improving bilateral relations with Russia - both now and after Putin's departure.

- said Ariel Cohen.

Earlier, The National Interest published material with similar theses. A similar point of view expressed by the American media platforms about Alexei Kudrin may indicate that he is a highly desirable "candidate for successor" to the Russian president for political of the US elites.

      People don't even ask. For the West, Kudrin's economic bloc will do, but it doesn't matter whether Putin or Shoigu will frown and threaten his finger

    This shows how far in the United States, even citizens from "our former", are far from the realities in the Russian Federation.
    Or do they actually think that in Russia, like theirs, it is possible to put someone on the throne on the command from somewhere through the media, social networks and outright fraud in elections ...
    Of course, they would have liked Kudrin's "tough course", but they will have to relax - there are still Dyumin, Shoigu and other characters ... It will be really tough. Get ready!

      The main thing for them is to leave it on the economy, and so the Guarantor can sit for another 10 years.

        ... I didn't vote at all then. It didn't work out. And THEN it was in the Russian Federation that it was still very different, it will not work for them NOW ...
        Thank God...

          Don't you think that Medvedev was "put on the throne" with the help of the media "on command from somewhere ..."?
          As, in fact, Putin himself in 2000 with the help of the media (more precisely, with the help of Dorenko and the 1st channel of Berezovsky)?
          Who has them?

        Let me ask you ... What do you dislike about Medvedev?

        Why did you ask? Well, because I think Medvedev VVPutin and kept it for lack of ambition, for absolute consent to be on the sidelines, formally even being in the first. Which means complete submission in the execution of the will of the GDP, always, in everything, and even at the time of temporary "presidency". (Except, perhaps, the 2008 war with "Georgia", where, most likely, Putin temporarily gave the reins of decision-making to DAMVA)

        Those. Do you dislike Medvedev, as a simple executor of someone else's will, because during his time in the Kremlin, VVP made especially unpopular and erroneous decisions?

          I do not like those who love the green snake, and especially, since the time of Yeltsin, in the highest positions of the country.
          And yes, castling seems to me a fraud.
          In general, my remark was related to the statement of the respected Pishenkovа

          Or do they really think that in Russia, like theirs, you can really do it through the media ... to put someone on the throne on a command from somewhere

          And in my humble opinion, Medvedev was imprisoned just through the media. Like Putin himself in 2000.

    Why so harshly cross out Kudrin's political career ??

    Another such "reformer" as Gorbachev, and Russia will disappear from the map of the world, and Kudrin, and even with Chubais's makeweight, will simply speed up this process, and Russia, under their "sensitive" leadership, will fall to senile and arthrosis the very next day. to the legs of Biden's grandfather ... It's just interesting for all our people that these rats, under Gorbachev-Yeltsin, pushed Russia and its people into a deep economic and political crisis, right up to the collapse of the USSR, and are still in power, and not there are also new mercaders and kvachkovs on them.

    Hmm, with such a statement on Kudrin's career, you can just calmly put an end to it. I don't know, well, at least some kind of imagination was turned on. They would say - we like Kadyrov! Or do we fucking love Shoigu!

    And what is the current Guarantor bad for them? He has been rowing like a galley slave for 20 years, and the Kudrins have been doing their job behind him for 20 years, as he has been raising Russia from its knees.

    The Jewish occupiers represented by A. Cohen have the audacity to suggest such a thing.
    By the way, after all, the current President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, surrounded himself with Jews: oligarchs, ombudsmen, ministers, senators and deputies of the State Duma, ...
    So, the Russian leader himself made the "right choice" a long time ago ???

    The only person from Putin's entourage who could take the place of the president of the Russian Federation even today is Shoigu, all other people are very narrow-minded and unsuitable for these purposes. One statement by Volodin, with a proposal to abolish state pensions in the Russian Federation, is worth something. Those who are not smart like Volodin are capable of driving the Russian Federation only to a riot, or revolution, but not to a bright future!

    Haaaa, so go and Sobchachka was offended by the ovs and harbored anger at Kudrin ...
    And so the chuyka suggests that Mishustin is being prepared for the title of successor. Serious man! Our tradition is so small (we had only three presidents: drunkard, Putin, LADIES and Putin again). And the prime minister has always been the successor. Even now he is often shown on TV, so that the people get used to the new leader.
