French scientist understood: Putin is popular because they believe in him

85
One French scientist revealed to France the secret of the popularity of Russian Putin.




Yes, it is difficult for Europeans to understand why Putin is so popular in Russia, why voters give him their votes. In fact, all this is easy to explain. Political scientist Cyril Bree and explained.

He gave an interview to Atlantico.fr, where he said that even his former career in the KGB is going to Putin in the piggy bank (of course, from the point of view of the Russians, which the Frenchman knows from somewhere).

According to a learned Frenchman who leads "InoTV"Russians are dissatisfied with the scale of corruption in the country and inequality. However, the Russians believe that Putin will solve these problems in the next six years.

Political scientist Cyril Bree believes that the popularity of the Russian president "baffled", but only in the case, if it is considered from the point of view of European democracies. The voices collected by Putin speak of his real popularity, and in many respects "organized."

Putin is a former KGB officer. The power structures for Russians are key institutions for the functioning of the state. In the West, such a career path may cause suspicion, and for many Russians it is, on the contrary, evidence of a person’s firmness and commitment to national interests.

The role played by the president’s ability to show himself to the public on television. "Straight line" supports an image close to the people. The president loves judo and sport in general, and this strengthens his image of a healthy man.

Putin is far superior to competitors, according to Bre. And what are these competitors? Communist candidates, in fact, beat an idea like Putin’s (the idea of ​​Russia's greatness). Zhirinovsky is screaming in public in vain, while he himself is "built into the political system." Sobchak as a “shock candidate” did not take place, she is unconvincing. And in general, the opposition in Russia is weak.

Putin’s popularity is also due to the country's prosperity. Western analysts are talking about the 2014 crisis of the year, while Russians are recalling the growth of the 2000s. True, this growth occurred in comparison with the decline of 1990's and depended on the export of mineral raw materials, and the crises of 2008 and 2014 showed its weakness ...

Foreign policy issues have also become a significant factor for the Russian people. In Europe, people are used to the fact that foreign policy in elections does not play a significant role, but in Russia everything is not so: the voters there pay attention to what they call a rebirth. The Russians, the political analyst believes, are happy with BRICS, are glad to cooperate with China, are happy that Moscow is counteracting US influence in Central Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

The most curious thing to note is that the Frenchman has the following: he finds Putin's obvious weakness: the issue of fighting the corruption of the elite surrounding Putin, and another weakness — the issue of population inequality. Components of such inequality: a large variation in the level of income of citizens, inequality in access to public services and employment. But the Frenchman is convinced: the Russian people believe that in the new term Putin will “succeed”, that is, he will win both inequality and even corruption of elites.

Why hasn’t Putin been able to defeat elite corruption in his eighteen years in power? Neither the French scientist nor, apparently, those who vote for Putin answer this question.

    They do not believe in him, just a habit. People are not afraid that everything remains as it is. They are afraid that it will be worse than they are. They want to eat.

        In the USA corruption has not been defeated in 200 years, so why do we expect this from Putin in 18 years?

            In addition, Putin was faced with a bunch of more important things: the fight against the oligarchy, the restoration and rearmament of the army, increasing the sovereignty of the country, etc. And the fight against corruption is on, only those who do not want to see this will blame Putin for the opposite .

            The taxi driver, who took 50 thousand rubles from a Chilean journalist for travel from Domodedovo to a Moscow hotel, said he did not want to deceive a foreigner. The driver apologized to the guest of the Confederations Cup and promised to return that money and ride around Moscow for free.

              Fie corruption, the devil is not so terrible as he is painted, in the most democratic and liberal society in the USA, long ago they legitimized corruption and made it a type of business, they came up with the beautiful name lobbying. Pay for services to a person, for example, consulting or take a fee for the promotion of goods, just remember to pay taxes. In the US, the tax service will come to you faster, with tax evasion, than the FBI with robbery robbery of the bank, the gangster Al Capone experienced the confirmation, robbed the bank, pay taxes)))
              In Russia, oddly enough, corruption protects the sovereignty of the state, it is a barrier against the dominance of Western "benefactors" with their unlimited amount of printed money and beads imposed on the whole world (accessible for robbery) by a liberal economy and freedom (for their fraudulent, advertising) the words.
              So do not panic, there is no evil without good ...

          Corruption cannot be defeated in principle. The problem is the level of corruption and its impact on the country.
          When there are powerful forces that are fighting among themselves for power, when there is a change of power, when there is a separation between the branches of power, then corruption becomes less.

          And when, all the power belongs to one person or group of people, when this person destroyed the opposition, and together with himself puts the clowns on the background of which he looks great - then people have little choice - either choose him or they will choose him like that .

          You should not compare the wild corruption in Russia and corruption in the United States and many other countries, where there is corruption, of course.

          Corruption and a disregard for an attitude is easy to see on a fasting example - the incomes of those in power. Many are not even embarrassed to write their property and the property of their wives there, which they really can’t earn by receiving only a regular salary and judging by past income before starting work.

          They spit in their faces when speaking of patriotism, and their children study and live abroad, they buy real estate in Europe, build castles in Russia and they do not care because the court will not do anything to them, since it does not have independence.



          They allow anyone they want to the elections, the opposition has been destroyed in 18 years. And they understand it, but they vote for Putin because they understand that there are no more options - Putin will continue to do this and that way, they will continue to steal billions, those in power will cost locks and talk about holding on.

          The main thing, apparently, in this system is not to lead to a complete impoverishment of the population, which can ultimately go against the government and therefore it is sometimes necessary to throw bones from the lordly table, scare enemies by distracting from internal problems, rattle with weapons like Eun and not let anyone else approach authorities having full authority over the judiciary.

            You are absolutely right - it is impossible to defeat corruption in real society. Yes, and in the semi-ideal - too. Was there no corruption in the USSR and the socialist countries?
            One of the possible solutions in the West (and China is moving towards this;) is based on the well-known principle "if drinking cannot be prevented, then it is better to head." Corruption at high levels of government is legalized (lobbying), but at the middle and low levels mercilessly suppressed. Of course, from time to time, allegations of corruption are also used to settle accounts in elites - the tool is very convenient, effective and politically correct, almost like a charge of sexual harassment smile

Russia has taken a huge step forward in its development, and indeed in strength. The weakness was terrible (Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya). Syria did not ride the FSA. I live for a long time, I saw a lot of rulers. Putin due to the diabolical disability has achieved these results. I support Putin’s real, objective criticism, there are a lot of imperfections, but I just envy whether they spit dung in his direction from envy, or I don’t really respect cookies. As a rule, such people end their years of life poorly, for some reason illnesses are sticky. IMHO.

            Just a moment. What does Putin have to do with it? Oil grew 5 times, crumbs from their table had to be let out somewhere (well, do not throw it away). Who is responsible for oil prices in the world? Who and for all prices in general. And this is not Putin at all. So - can we thank the USA?
            With Syria, what did not ride? The USA, as they were not going to leave, are not going to. And they sit in the oil and gas regions. Our Foreign Ministry does not even express concern about this. So what, who will pull the pipe from Qatar, who will pump from Syria?

    French scientist understood: Putin is popular because they believe in him


    When there is no alternative that Putin destroyed.
    When the media are subordinate to the authorities and make Putin a hero
    When he admits the next clowns who call names, argue like in a bazaar and doused with water and looks great against their background.
    When Putin speaks out and spends most of his time rattling weapons, not internal problems, distracting from internal problems.
    When Putin is afraid of debate and simply does not go to it because he has the media in his pocket and creates a positive image for him.
    When the judiciary is subordinate to power.


    Hence its “popularity”, which is easily described by one proverb - fishlessness and cancer. Especially considering that he himself created bezryba. People have no one to choose from — this is the way the power survives. Stockholm syndrome in all its glory.

    The number of landings related to corruption cases has grown significantly in recent years, and not only in numbers: from a timid and vile game in the Serdyukov-Vasilyeva case to very tough cases against Ulyukaev and a number of governors. It is clear that this means that Putin has gained enough strength to fight not only in the stalls, but also in the stance. Knowing his perseverance and unhurriedness, one can expect that on this front he has chances, if not for a complete victory, then for winning by points.

    I do not believe in Putin. It is enough to open your eyes and see what is really happening. What plants? What is import substitution? Do not make me laugh! Everything is gradually declining except for the extractive industry and the weapons industry. And then it will only get worse. Well, worse not for everyone, for the oligarchs, on the contrary, it will be better. The Russian Trade Federation, under the trade tricolor, regularly drives resources to other countries. This is what large international corporations need and the extractive industry with energy will develop. Weapons will also develop, because if our miners need to protect their interests, what if the West doesn’t accept them in their friendly civilized family? Of course, all this goes under patriotic slogans that Russia is a strong independent state! =) And the rest of the industry is not interesting to anyone, we will buy the rest abroad. That's the whole layout.

    It's simple, our liberal government, together with the main liberal Putin, are now trying to beat their place in Western civilization on equal terms with the oligarchs there. And they still do not want to see them there, because they are like very young upstarts. The West loves traditions and clanism, this is not a secret.

    As for the arrests ... well, those who didn’t share it) Either who crossed the road to larger fish like Ulyukaev. Until Chubais sits, Serdyukov and others like them are dust in the eyes. How can you not justify Putin here. Therefore, I do not believe him, and I believe that as a result we will get an internal conflict after a while. I am for the Stalinist methods, only those who steal or who judge Stalin by what they say on the TV are afraid of them) I recall that after himself Stalin left only a pair of boots, a pair of tunic jackets, a pipe, personal belongings and a nuclear bomb ..

    Aren't you afraid that the evil army will attack you?
    The question is not what I'm afraid of. The question is what the top is afraid of if it behaves this way. At the same time, the option of at least trying to improve something is not even considered. Therefore, the army is being reformed towards the BB, divisions are being killed in favor of the brigades, and indeed the deviation into highly mobile counterguerrilla units. Therefore, the WG, which will soon absorb the Strategic Missile Forces. Therefore, new equipment for sale, Armata at the parade, 57 suddenly waved to Syria. And his T-80, T-72, BTR-82 (82!).

I live in Slovakia, formerly in Czechoslovakia, things are constantly throughout Europe. There is NOT A SINGLE sphere of business, life, human activity, where there is no corruption. Now there are several projects under way, money was paid for approvals in Brussels, where and for officials to agree, everyone who agreed on permits, projects, licenses, etc. EVERYWHERE ALL TAKE and assign the amounts themselves.

      Speaking of the impoverishment of the people, about which many here write. I may live somewhere in the wrong place. In the district, all parking lots are crammed with expensive cars; you can’t park near the house. For the holidays, you need to book a month in advance for any recreation center or for any tour in spite of the wild prices. On March 8, men bought bouquets of 2000 - 3000 thousand rubles. The other day, a neighbor whined about his miserable situation — I wanted to buy an SUV for my daughter, I didn’t pull it — I bought a sedan. He is a musician himself, leads weddings, anniversaries, and I'm not sure that he pays taxes in full to demand something from the state. There is one observation, maybe I'm wrong, the most dissatisfied with the state are those who give nothing to this state. By no means do I want to offend those who really plow at the factory for their meager salaries or pensioners (the pensions are really small), that is, that is, but for some reason I have to hear complaints about Putin and the state from wealthy people. I cannot understand this.

    Who believes in what? The fact is that the majority of the country's population is politically illiterate, they have no idea who the “liberals” are, what political ideologies are, how the candidates differ, they don’t even know what kind of policies Putin is pursuing. Once I asked, to put it mildly, a stupid person for whom he would vote in the election of governor

    “And who will you vote for?”
    - For Short
    “Why for him?”
    - Well, uh ... well ... well ... mmm .. he was in the flood
    - What is the difference between the other candidates?
    - * silence *
    “Have you even read their programs?”
    - Not

    This is even a good example, a person knows that the candidates have a program, I say, not a stupid person. A typical inertia is superimposed on political illiteracy when all real political activity begins and ends with "debate in the kitchen" and watching TV channels. As well as consider any activity (about how people can only spit, but finger will not hit finger, I can write whole strictly documentary novels). What about TV? And in our country, the two most popular channels are officially state-owned and are drowned for Putin all year round, they are openly used for political propaganda of the strictly ruling party. And even in the artificial and initially organized elections, TV in general “uncovers” and gives fire from all the guns. Naturally, after such a treatment, the population will be for Putin, it will not be able to say why, but it will. Especially when the opposition crashed and collapsed in 2012-2013, and now the candidates there are not so hot to put it mildly, most of them are just the former ruling party which was excommunicated from the feeder.

    But inertia is doing its job and in order to prevent the failure of the elections, the authorities canceled the turnout threshold and now even one vote will be legally enough to recognize the elections as valid. And all these “believers in Putin”, without any Navalny and his boycott, will sit and believe in Putin’s victory ... at home. And he will win, there can be no other.

    Mnogohodovka opposition or trap for Putin.
    Panfilova recently said that even if Grudinin wins, the elections will be declared invalid due to his accounts in Switzerland.
    I just thought - isn’t this the opposition’s plan to seize power from the Tsar?
    I explain.
    First option. Putin wins, but Grudinin’s accounts about which the opposition specifically merges into the CEC. Result - the elections are declared invalid and re-elections are called.
    The second option. Grudinin wins, but Panfilova, in full accordance with her plan, declares the elections invalid because of the same notorious accounts of Grudinin. And again appoint re-elections.
    Well, what is the plan, you ask? Everything is simple. BY LAW, if the elections are declared invalid, then the candidates who participated in them CANNOT take part in the re-election (re-election).
    Everything is simple. In the case of re-election, both Putin and Grudinin lose their right to participate in them. And this is a complete and unconditional victory of the opposition. The Communist Party and the coalition have a long bench - Boldyrev, Boglaev and others. That is why, when choosing who will go to the polls, a whole team was nominated from which Grudinin was chosen. But Putin is simply no one to replace in the elections.
