In 2024, Russians will have to choose between Putin and Medvedev

It is the end of March 2023, which means that in less than a year, another presidential election should be held in Russia. Consequently, the electoral cycle has already actually started, which gives us reason to speculate about who might become the next head of state.

Candidate #1: "Good Cop"

The number one candidate for the presidency in our country is traditionally President Putin himself. Over the past two decades, for some reason, those who seriously want to challenge him have disappeared, if we take into account the four-year term of President Medvedev, which we will mention later. In theory, this presidential term was supposed to be the last for Vladimir Putin, but the legislative initiative of the deputy Tereshkova literally forced him to accept and come to terms with the idea of ​​“zeroing”.

During the amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation in 2020, a small legal and regulatory miracle occurred: Vladimir Vladimirovich received the right to again run for extraordinary two presidential terms of six years each, as if he had decided to run from scratch. At the same time, the State Council received constitutional status, which was also considered as a fallback for the so-called transit of power - 2024. However, such an idyllic picture was seriously spoiled by the NVO, or rather, a number of problems that emerged during it in the Russian army and in the rear. Bewildered questions began to arise, how did we come to this life, who is to blame and what to do.

The election campaign against the backdrop of fairly heavy hostilities seems to be a rather risky undertaking, especially considering that the “Western partners” have relied on the military victory of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Azov region with the Ukrainian army entering the Crimea. All this together made us wonder whether the presidential elections in the spring of 2024 will take place at all or whether they can be postponed. However, the intrigue was dispelled by Vladimir Putin himself in the course of his message to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, when he promised that the elections would be held on time. Added fuel to the fire and the head of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping, who during a visit to Moscow a few days ago made the following statement:

I know that another presidential election will be held in your country next year. Thanks to your strong leadership, Russia has made significant progress in recent years in achieving success and prosperity for the country. I am sure that the Russian people will strongly support you in your good undertakings.

True, the "voice of Putin" Dmitry Peskov immediately again hurried to catch up with the fog, explaining that participation in the elections was not implied by his boss:

You heard him wrong, Xi Jinping is sure that in a year the Russians will support Vladimir Putin. And here one can only share Xi Jinping's confidence.

Summing up, we can conclude that Vladimir Putin would rather go for an extraordinary term than not go. This event can be considered almost without alternative, after a warrant was issued in The Hague for his arrest on frankly absurd charges. However, the issuance of the warrant was publicly welcomed by US President Joe Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, so there is nothing funny about it. Lifelong presidency is the best immunity from any criminal prosecution by "Western partners".

It should be noted that almost immediately after the start of the NWO, Vladimir Putin began to play the role of a “good cop”, declaring in every possible way his openness to negotiations and demonstrating one “goodwill gesture” after another.

Candidate #2: "Bad Cop"

Perhaps more interesting than Vladimir Vladimirovich, excuse me, is his old friend and colleague, who once held the post of head of state for four years, Dmitry Medvedev, looks in the media field. Over the past year, our Dmitry Anatolyevich has been reborn from a kind of liberal-democratic "teddy bear" into a real "hawk", militant and uncompromising. What is his appeal to the Stalinist experience of industrialization and mobilization of industry worth:

I recently read the telegrams of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin on issues of the military-industrial complex ... I want to read these telegrams to the directors of our factories in order to cheer them up.

If only someone had said recently that Sislib Medvedev would respectfully quote Comrade Stalin ... If you put aside emotions, you can see how the ex-president, and now the deputy head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, says and writes exactly what patriotic Russians want to hear and see. Unlike President Putin, he is not talking about peace talks with the Kyiv regime, but about the liberation of Ukraine from Nazi rule:

If you need to get to Kyiv, then you need to go to Kyiv, if to Lvov, then you need to go to Lvov in order to exterminate this infection.

In other words, Dmitry Anatolyevich acts as a “bad cop” against the background of Vladimir Putin, who tried on the image of a “good cop”, calling for peace and friendship. But why are we being shown such political configuration?

The first version assumes that ex-president Medvedev has now taken the place of the untimely departed Vladimir Zhirinovsky and is playing the role of a kind of “slightly inadequate with a nuclear baton”, to which Vladimir Putin is a sane and negotiable alternative for the world community.

According to the second hypothesis, Dmitry Anatolyevich can really run for the presidential election and even win, running as a "reserve candidate". In the event of unforeseen negative events on the Ukrainian fronts, he will act from the position of “I warned you” as a candidate from the ruling nomenklatura, which wants to diversify political risks. Consequently, the Russians will have to choose between one of the two.

Can the deputy head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation play his own game? A similar variant is not ruled out, but in the event of a truly severe internal political crisis.

    I would not be in a hurry to say that there will be no other choice. If only because I assume that the GDP will not put forward its candidacy. But the fact that for him the choice of a successor will be very difficult, I have no doubt. And it is far from a fact that Dimon will become it.

    The most serious strategic damage that the Oligarchs, Putin, Medvedev and United Russia inflict on the Russian nation (with the external support of the West and the internal assistance of the cowardly Zyuganov) lies in the veto of a strong leadership and the possible alternatives of a progressive and patriotic government.

    Medvedev - the best years in the history of the country, the decisive defeat of Georgia in 5 days. By the way, without the unparalleled prodigy.
    There were no sanctions for Georgia. The country's GDP exceeded $2 trillion for the first time in history.

    Putin, on the other hand, has only Chechnya on his shoulders, Syria, by the way, is a semi-failure, and not a successful success, as they say. Bear in mind that the Americans are pumping oil there calmly, and the terrorists still control the territories.
    Crimea2014 - semi-success, a country under sanctions and a catastrophe in the economy.
    2022 and NWO dtsmayu, and so it is clear that this is not a success.
    And the shameful words that Ukrainians are brothers, one people and other nonsense - says a lot.
    The enemy infrastructure has not been destroyed, the year of the NWO has passed.

    Medvedev is the best in the history of Russia, if he were president, the "fraternal people" would already be sitting in the dark and without all the infrastructure

      this "best" president did everything to the West to please himself, and to attach his son to the USA: he bought 100 Boeings, and gave the shelf to the Norwegians, and bought US debts, the Russian market laid out at a glance, ... and seemed to like he them, he was even allowed to grow vineyards in NATO, to show off on a yacht in NATO. but the LGBT Zionists of the State Department quickly lost their liking, they kicked their son and sent him himself, after the start of the NWO. after the Kremlin remembered the national security of the country as a personal security. not Dimon understood something that was clear even to Soviet children (which he himself was) that the West is an enemy, and if he climbs with hugs, then only to suffocate in his arms.

        What kind of national security did the Kremlin remember if the military budget went to the Caimans, Cyprus and Switzerland? 70 percent of the new technology by the way. That's how they remembered it.
        Medved ruled the country for 4 years, the country developed in a big leap, so the country's GDP also exceeded $ 2 trillion for the first time, albeit high oil prices in particular.

        And Putin entered into agreements with European countries for the supply of cheap gas, so he boasted about it. Vooo we supply Germany at 200 for, and the market value is 600. Well, stupid Europeans, I didn’t tell you)

    Fresh news in favor of Putin the President

    writing off 20 billion dollars of debt from African states. Putin announced this at the Russia-Africa International Parliamentary Conference held in Moscow.

    Africans last received such a gift in 2019.

    Cubans were also very lucky nine years ago when Russia “forgot” about $30 billion.

    Not counting the smaller write-offs - 70 billion in someone's pocket. (because! somewhere it will decrease, but somewhere it will arrive!
    If in tanks, then these are 14 of the latest T000 tanks for SVO
    If in the oligarchs - then these are 6 Usmanovs

    The first is the personification of oligarchic Russia with the looting of everything that can be stolen. And yet - he promised a lot of things, but the result is that he promises to promise.
    The second - you can't imagine worse. A lot of negativity with the donated territories, and in foreign policy everything is with a minus sign. But now in all the media he is almost a hawk.

    I believe that Dmitry Medvedev, with his current statements, does not add to his authority or reputation as a mature politician. Not that he is a kneading leader, sorry for being categorical. While Russia is in a state of fierce struggle not for life, but to the death, it needs a leader of a different mindset and special knowledge, training and practical experience. Sediq Afghan predicted who is likely to be our future leader. You can grin, you can doubt his method of "calculating the future", time will tell.
