LAND OF THE TSARS

Mensaje por El Compañero el Jue Sep 29, 2011 11:59 am

The Russian fascination with autocratic ruler, with Tsars never ends. Tsars in different disguises have oppressed Russia: The Romanov Tsars, the Communist Tsars and now the Entrepreneurial Tsars in the person of Tsar Putin I.

Putin ruled as President for 8 years, and then became “Prime Minister” and the “power behind power” over the past 4 years. Now the Tsar returns to the open as an almost absolute candidate in the 2012 elections for the United Party of Russia. The former KGB officer turned into Chief of the FSB used his power and “information” to bribe opponents and to climb the political ladder. He resigned from membership in the Communist Party and was selected by the Yeltsin family as the alleged “puppet” successor. Little did the Yeltsin family know about this man who quickly showed its teeth and emerged as Russia’s new autocrat purging the Yeltsin family in the process. All of this in a highly dictatorial context with most political opponents incarcerated, poisoned to death or systematically intimidated.

End of the Bromance? Are Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev breaking up or just trading places?
SEPTEMBER 26, 2011
http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2011/09/26/end_of_the_bromance?page=0,23


I'm back: "I want to say directly: An agreement over what to do in the future was reached between us several years ago," Putin told his supporters on Sept. 24. While his return to the presidency answers one major mystery about Russian politics, it's still an open question as to whether Medvedev will stick around to retake his former seat as prime minister. They're all smiles for now, but can Vova and Dima continue to work together smoothly? (In one early sign of friction, Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said he would resign rather than serve under Medvedev and was summarily dismissed.) One thing's for sure: Russia's leading pair will continue to be interesting to watch.


Back to the future: At the annual convention of the United Russia party this week, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced that his political mentor and predecessor, Vladimir Putin, would be running to return to the presidency in 2012. As he is almost guaranteed to win, Putin can now theoretically rule Russia until 2024, when he will be 71 years old.

The announcement ended years of speculation about whether Putin would return to the presidency, speculation that began almost immediately after he announced he was stepping down -- in compliance with constitutionally mandated term limits -- in 2008. It also marks a transition point for one of the most intriguing partnerships in modern politics.

Most experts agree, including the former President Mikhail Gorbachev that if Russia does not adopt in depth political and economical reforms over the next years the existing political structure will become most like its Communist Party predecessor.

Russia continues with an autocratic ruler in democratic disguise and a modern context. Let us not forget of Putin’s ambition to reclaim the Soviet empire or part of it as he called the disintegration of the Soviet Union “the worst geo political disaster of the 20th century.”

Buddies in chief: Russian voters and international observers were uncertain as to how the unorthodox arrangement would work and whether Medvedev would be anything more than Putin's puppet. At least initially, Medvedev appeared to demonstrate some independence, launching an anti-corruption campaign targeting the culture of graft and bribery that had flourished during Putin's presidency.

Warpath: In the summer of 2008, Russia responded to attempts by Georgia to consolidate its control over the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by launching a massive invasion of the country. Reports from the time indicated it was Putin, not Medvedev, who was directing the country's military strategy during the war.

Confidants… At times, the partnership seems to perfectly suit the two leaders, with Medvedev acting as a more presentable face for Russia abroad, while Putin directs policy at home.
