Kedmi called Putin's departure "the main test" for the Russian elite

The former head of the Israeli intelligence service "Nativ" Yakov Kedmi expressed the opinion that the real test of the Russian политическая the elite will pass after the departure of the current president of the country, Vladimir Putin, from business. The military expert said that he knows "a lot of people" in the Russian Federation who care about the interests of their country, in contrast to what was a couple of decades ago.

I have met many people in Russia who really care about the interests of their state, unlike what happened 20 and 30 years ago. Have they developed a sufficiently strong and effective elite? The exam will be when Putin leaves the political arena, according to who will replace him
he thinks.

Before that, Kedmi says, one can only speculate whether the country will be able to nominate people with state thinking from its ranks who will be able to preserve the state in which they live.

But the biggest, best and most objective test is after Putin leaves the political arena, and who will replace him, and how the state will develop further 

Kedmi emphasized.

However, the expert believes, these same processes apply to any country, and even the most politically stable China. As an example, Kedmi suggested paying attention to European countries and the United States with a "degrading" state elite.

Fifty years ago, they would not have been allowed on the doorstep. Illiterate, immoral, greedy, corrupt, no conscience, no honor, no faith in anything. I don't speak in a religious sense, but in a religious sense too
- the military expert is sure.

In 2024, President Putin expires presidential term. The amendments made to the Constitution of the Russian Federation in 2020 gave him the opportunity to “reset” and run for two more presidential terms of six years each. The dramatic events that unfolded after the start of the special operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022, give reason to believe that this “transit of power” scenario will not be used after all.

    First of all, it would be nice to have an answer to the preliminary question: “Will Putin leave his post in a natural, that is, legitimate way, or will he be overthrown by his comrades-in-arms?” To date, the outcome is equally likely. It may very well be that for Russia Putin is not, conditionally, Alexander III, but the most that neither is, Nicholas II. Very much NWO looks like the First World War.

        O! This Jew has already smelled something. Really, "flybug" soon? If so, then let's get started! Each of the groups hanging out at the throne will slip their "substitute" who will promise to "solve everything." Come on, come on, looks like something very interesting is waiting for us soon.

      An interesting and very apt parallel to GDP and Nicholas 2. I think GDP started the SVO, like Nicholas 2, the Russian-Japanese war, as a small victorious war to strengthen his throne. The Russo-Japanese War gave rise to the revolution of 1905. Now a new elite of Russia is being formed in the NWO. The elite is united by the idea of ​​​​elevating and protecting Russia and not plundering Russia. This elite is extremely dangerous for the robbers of Russia.

    there are many people in Russia who really care about the interests of their state

    but also many people who put their selfish interests above the interests of the state and during the war supply the enemies with raw materials, energy resources and other goods.
    Victory only as a result of depriving Ukraine of statehood, on the side of which more than 50 state entities of the world are fighting, is unlikely
    Separate collusion or division of Ukraine with NATO will be tantamount to the defeat of the Russian Federation
    Putin has no moral right to step down from leadership before the end of the war, and there is no prospect of an end.

    Evaluations of the activities of leaders in our country with a certain constancy change to diametrically opposed ones.
    Even from recent history: both Gorbachev and Yeltsin were greeted with a bang and were just not carried on their hands.
    Yeltsin, by the way, was worn.
    And after years?
    They bonfire and curse both. And this is despite the undeniable positives that took place in their work.
    So, in the case of the current leader, it is quite possible to assume a change in the vector of [official] adoration for the opposite.
    Reasons abound
    Suffice it to recall the pension reform, the "protection" of the oligarchy, the excuse from justice of the Serdyukov company.
    And now, NWO, which is rapidly developing in the "wrong" direction.
    The transfer of power according to the scenario of the last time (the Family chose and appointed) is quite likely.
    We just don't know how society will react to this.
    People are fooled by pep reports, soap operas and stupid TV shows. That is, in fact, turn off his brains.
    At the same time, protest moods have matured in society in many aspects of life, which can no longer be drowned out by anything.
    And how it will go there, who knows?

      /u58/ There is no tradition in Russia to ask the people about what their power should be. Yes, the people themselves would hardly have coped with such a task. There are too many irresponsible screamers, and also few people who do anything consistently and to the end. Therefore, the hope, as always, is for a good and strong king. However, if it suits the Russian way of thinking, then why not?

        Because it's not the 17th century. Yes, even in the 17th century. Monarchy is when nobles rule.

        You at least ask yourself the question: "can one manage millions?" One even a hundred without deputies does not manage. And millions need a ruling stratum of society.

        Where will you get nobles for the monarchy in the 21st century? Is it possible to release all the lads from prisons for this role? But "dear Russians" with their feudal psychology have slipped into this.

        Eklmn .... a society as dense as 400 years ago, the President is elected for life as a king in 1613 .... and they still hope for some kind of historical perspective ...

    I agree with Kedmi. Starting with Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, Stalin, we have not yet developed collegial management. If it had been in the days of the USSR, then no Gorbachev could have started the collapse of the USSR. He would just be removed.
