Putin's Russia Today

What is really going on in Putin’s Russia? On the political situation in the Kremlin

Semyon Vendrov, Vendrov Consulting,

Russia needs a change in political course. Putin is leading the country to nowhere. Putin’s totalitarian, dictatorial style of government has turned Russia into an international outcast. Without a dramatic improvement in relations between Moscow and Washington, the crisis in the Russian economy will only grow. They say that today in the Kremlin many decisions in the field of domestic and foreign policy are not made personally by Putin himself but by his permanent press secretary Dmitry Peskov. If this is true, then this information indicates that Putin has practically transferred the huge layers of his work to the shoulders of Mr. Peskov. So does Mr. Peskov not understand that the further deterioration of relations between Russia and the West will lead the Russian economy to disaster?

At the time, Sergei Kiriyenko, when he was prime minister of the Russian Federation, made many political decisions for Boris Yeltsin, who was a heavy drinker in the Kremlin, and, in fact, at that time led the country instead of Yeltsin, but then Kiriyenko’s decisions were largely correct and democratic. But the decisions of Mr. Peskov are wrong, and indeed do not lend themselves to any human logic. What next? Maybe Putin should start reforms in his country by dismissing Dmitry Peskov from the post of press secretary? But does Dmitry Medvedev still have to be reinstated as prime minister of the Russian Federation instead of Mikhail Mishustin not managing his job? Questions, questions … The rest will be shown by time.

On the political crisis in Putin’s Russia

Did Sergei Kiriyenko decide to take advantage of the crisis in Russian politics and take up Putin’s successors? Are there any agreements today regarding the transfer of power in the Kremlin between Kiriyenko and Dmitry Medvedev?
What is the reason for the close cooperation of Mr. Medvedev with people from the Yeltsin Center in Yekaterinburg? Is Dmitry Medvedev planning to create a new political rescue party?
And here another question begs: A party to save Russia, or a party to save its own image in the eyes of the Russian people? Is it possible that Putin himself, in connection with the growing political and economic crisis, will decide to nevertheless resign as president of the Russian Federation after the world, including Russia, declares his victory over the coronavirus?
Will Putin resign as president of the Russian Federation as one of the winners in the fight against coronavirus, and not as a totalitarian dictator who wants to remain the owner of the Kremlin until 2036? Will Putin take the chair of a lifelong senator in the Federation Council in the near future instead of a permanent presidency?
Who will be the next president of the Russian Federation after Putin? Sergei Kiriyenko, Dmitry Medvedev, or, even outwardly resembling Boris Yeltsin, Sergei Sobyanin, whom many today call Yeltsin-2 in Russia?
Questions, questions … Only time will tell.
