Reliable Putin and his happy generation

149

Project "ZZ". Many Russians do not represent Russia without Putin. Many believe that it was he who put an end to the chaos of the 1990s and gave rise to an era of stability. And it’s even hard to imagine today that in Russia there was a time without Putin.


Two major foreign publications decided to find out how Russians really feel about Putin, what they see in him and how they imagine Putin’s era, in which an entire generation has grown and received education, as well as to identify the reasons for Putin’s success in the international arena.

Forever system


Henry Foy, head of the Moscow bureau of the newspaper Financial Times (Great Britain) wrote a lot of material for publication and tried to objectively cover the phenomenon of “Putin's generation”.

How do young Russians see the only leader they have ever known? After all, their whole life was formed under one ruler.

“What do they really think about their president?” Asked Foy.

Alexander Khazbiyev was only 5 years old when Vladimir Putin was first sworn in as the new president of Russia. In May 2018, Alexander was already 24 years old, and he attended the last inauguration of the president, a ceremony in the Grand Kremlin Palace.

This is история: In two decades, V. Putin has turned from an “anonymous apparatchik,” the author of the article notes, into one of the most influential people in the world, and the Russian economy has grown more than six times compared to 2000.

There was another. “The country,” the author writes, “entered the WTO, was expelled from the G67, invaded its two neighbors and hosted the World Cup and the Winter Olympics. Putin, now XNUMX years old, has sparred with four US presidents and five British prime ministers. ”

What does the youth who grew up and received education under Putin think?

“In my opinion, there is no such period of time when Putin did not exist, when he did not exist,” said twenty-five-year-old Alexander, a university lecturer who lives in St. Petersburg. According to him, today in Russia, anyone who wants to achieve something can do it. Such freedom "was guaranteed for the first time in the history of our country."

“I never stopped thinking about this country without him [Putin] as president. I am convinced that Putin as a politician is one thing ... but the system he created will always be ... Well, that’s what I hope for. ”

Alexander is not alone in his opinion. A generation of Russians, about forty million people, reminds Henry Foy, was born and educated in a political system that "revolves around one person." This is the “Putin generation”, and it is now approaching its coming of age.

Over the past few months, British correspondents interviewed nearly fifty young people aged 18 to 25 years old (from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Siberia and other regions). As the author points out, for tens of millions of people, the only change in leadership in their lives was cosmetic - it was an “exchange of experiences designed by Putin,” who ruled the country as prime minister between 2008 and 2012, and then became president again. His time in running the country was second only to Joseph Stalin’s 31-year reign in the USSR, and his United Russia party never occupied less than 238 out of 450 seats in parliament.

And almost all the young Russians who spoke with British correspondents recognize the "silent contract" imposed on them by the "Putin regime." Foy formulates this contract as follows: "social stability and economic progress in exchange for a faded limited democracy."

Many young Russians not only expressed support for the only leader they had ever known, but even admired him.

True, others protested: after all, this man ruled longer than they lived in the world, and created a system in which they feel more and more helpless.

“We were born in this system, and this system is in our brains. Therefore, it is very, very difficult to even think about the possibility of changing it, ”says 21-year-old Maria from the city of Taganrog.

“I'm from a military family. I grew up in a garrison town. I remember watching the broadcast [of the inauguration of 2000] and feeling the atmosphere of expectation in my family, a family waiting for change, ”Alexander said in a conversation with a correspondent. “My parents were both officers,” he adds, “they were not paid a salary for six months. The whole society felt that the country was betrayed. I remember: when [Putin] came to power, my mom and dad had great hopes for change. And he [Putin] did it. Everything has gone for the better. ”

Until 2014, Foy notes, few would disagree with this. The Russian economy “skyrocketed” in the first decade of Putin’s rule, and living standards have risen. The number of people attending universities increased by 50 percent from 2000 to 2010, unemployment among those under 25 fell by a quarter. Coffee houses and bars began to multiply, European and American brands flooded the country, rushing to satisfy their needs. Easy access to Western culture, to travel abroad ...

“The current generation of young Russians is the happiest since 1991,” said Eduard Ponarin, professor of sociology at the Higher School of Economics. According to the professor, this generation is happy and apolitical. Most have nothing to worry about, but politicizing these people "will require something dramatic or very, very bad."

And yet, a new economic reality has invaded Putin’s calm rule. In 2014, Russia suffered from a double shock: the collapse of oil prices and the depreciation of the ruble. Western sanctions fell on the country. In the following years, real incomes fell. According to data for 2018, youth unemployment in Russia is more than three times higher than its level among the population as a whole compared to 2000. A study conducted in October 2019 by the Levada Center showed that 53% of people aged 18 to 24 years old want to leave the country.

“There are two different worlds: one in which I live, and the other with tuples and flashing lights,” says 23-year-old Vasily, who grew up in St. Petersburg. “Until life brings me to the edge, I don’t want to act,” he says.

“I went to Navalny’s meetings with my brother and several friends,” Basil admits. “I don’t like their methods, they are unpleasant ... He and his people are too aggressive ...”

Tomsk is a medium-sized city in the center of Siberia. Irina, 19, says: “Many people criticize, but no one does anything ... The mentality is such that everyone should do something, but as individuals they don’t want to do anything. Everyone thinks: “What can I do alone? What can I change myself? Therefore, they give up. ”

“I think protest is good, it's democracy,” Irina says. “But when the troops suppress these protests, that's good too.” If there is no suppression, then there will be chaos. Here are the two sides of the same coin ... "

Vasily and Irina, the author believes, "speak for many." According to a national poll published in October, two-thirds of Russian students are not interested in politics.


“Awfully reliable” Putin instead of the American “vacuum”


Gone are the days when people mocked Russia, the "regional power," writes Alice Bota in Time and patience. Putin is now much more successful in international politics than the US and the EU. Why?

The conflict between Iran and the United States. And in this situation, Angela Merkel does not fly to Washington, but to Moscow! Vladimir Putin invited her. This, of course, is the success of Russian diplomacy, writes Botha. “Whether you like it or not, this type of diplomacy, understood as a policy of pure interests, is currently quite effective,” she said.

Europeans seem depressed, the US is leaving the Middle East, and Vladimir Putin is touring: meets Assad in Syria, visits Russian troops, shakes hands with Turkish President Erdogan at the TurkStream gas pipeline and plans other meetings. “In short, Russians know how to fill the vacuum that Americans are leaving internationally,” the author concludes. “And the emptiness that Europeans support instead of diplomacy, too.”

“Gone are the days when Obama mocked Russia as a regional power,” adds Botha. And in Europe, which is still applying the sanctions regime against Russia, the Kremlin manages to "get out a little" of political isolation. Macron accepts Putin, Paris negotiates peace in Ukraine, but not without Putin’s preconditions.

According to the author, there are two main reasons for Russian success.

1. Russian diplomacy is considered very professional. Russian intelligence agents can make catastrophic mistakes, but Russian diplomats are considered to be well trained and experienced. It is unlikely that any of the foreign ministers was at his post longer than Sergei Lavrov. Lavrov is comprehensive: he talks with Iraqis, Turks, Egyptians, Americans, Libyans, Chinese, Israelis, Iranians ...

2. A more important reason is connected not so much with Russia as with the weakness of other states. Europeans are preoccupied with themselves, Americans with their unpredictable president, whose Middle Eastern policy is a mistake. Where chaos and vacuum, Putin becomes strong. And autocrats in the Middle East are grateful to Putin for this “reliable power." No relationship shows this more clearly than relations with Turkey. A few years ago, Erdogan was something like an enemy of Russia, and today, despite the conflicting interests of the two states in Libya and Syria, Turkey is an important partner of Russia, moreover, on Putin’s terms, Bot said.

Putin is now "terribly reliable," the journalist concludes.

* * *


Thus, it is very difficult for Russians, especially young people who have not seen another ruler in their life, apart from “castling” with Medvedev, to imagine Russia without Putin. It is this identification that is the basis of the cult of stability. And it is not for nothing that the younger generation recognizes that protests are good, but suppressing protests is also good, otherwise chaos is coming.

Kremlin without Putin? No, no one represents. Opposition victory? No, it's bad.

            There will be no civil war. These oppositionists only want a redistribution of cash flows, and in their own direction, and not in the direction of the people. And since they want to live richly and happily, they will not undertake the "Mauser". It is the redirection of these cash flows that will occur. All this will take place against the backdrop of interethnic clashes and separatist sentiments, as well as speculations about global values. (under the control and management of foreign special services). The formulation of the basic condition for revolution and civil war - "The upper classes cannot, the lower classes do not want" is rather vague in our time. Where is the border between them? Is the middle class lower classes? Where are the poor and homeless? Who are the declassed items nowadays? And finally, who is the force that is capable of rallying the "lower ranks and the dissatisfied leaders? The questions are uncomfortable, but without a clear answer to them, there can be no question of any civil war. These clowns, speculators, provocateurs, and a small number of idealists, that from time to time they organize rallies and run away (who will have time). And everyone else will get another round of chaos, terrorist attacks, further impoverishment. Who is to blame? It's clear. What to do? I don't know. But I am sure of one thing - to allow another round of chaos, this is treason!

          We need a new "stream". We must either take the risk of voting for a completely new person, or for the communists. After all, how Putin got up, no one knew him before: at first he was a security guard at Sobchak's, carried a briefcase for him, then he was promoted to deputy, etc.
          And if in the year 24 we choose the one whom he points to, then all this swamp will continue.

                    Persuaded, eloquent .... Once again, I warn you, the opinion is subjective.
                    The Stalinist period is a gradual improvement in life. Khrushchevsky - pride for the country. Brezhnevsky - confidence and stability, the most "fat" years. Andropovo-Chernenkovskys - silence and the dead stand with braids. Gorbachevskys - a movement began, leading to a disaster. Yeltsin - the collapse of the USSR and fall into the abyss. The last 20 years are not encouraging.

                      Well, I don’t remember Khrushchev.

                      Brezhnev's sense of stability With a gradually increasing sense that not everything is in order, and further it will only get worse.
                      - rallies and telly on the one hand jokes in the kitchen and voices in the radio on the other created a dissonance;
                      -electric train from Tula hinting at the situation in the national economy;
                      - and of course the "birch" obviously showing that there are people of different sorts in the USSR;

                      Andropov - Chernenko - leapfrog and confusion.

                      Hunchback - a feeling of accelerating fall into the abyss.

                      EBN - burning shame.

                      GDP - at first distrust, then thanks now curiosity and concern
                      For which I have already thanked many times: I need from the state the absence of a big war, revolution and a more or less functioning infrastructure, all the rest I am. GDP provided this.

                Personally, I remember very well Khrushchev's "thaw", when in 1964 they sold half a loaf of corn bread to one person, and I wore only pants for a whole year, I remember Brezhnev's "stagnation", when my mother was given a pension of 12 rubles, at the price of the cheapest sausage at 2,20, and on rural roads in bad weather it was possible to drown, we drove caterpillar tractors with tractor sleds, in production in those days it was literally necessary to "plow" to earn 120 rubles, you think that then I received a lot doctor or teacher? The same 100-120 rubles. Under Gorbachev, the life of the common people, oddly enough, improved, the people got extra money, which caused a rush of demand for literally everything, the store shelves were empty in the literal sense. Well, I will not characterize the "Yeltsin" times, you know everything about them, and I cannot understand why you are scolding Putin? He built roads for you, licked cities, provided work (you won't find a turner, a welder in the daytime with fire), there is a lot of housing (did you live in a communal apartment or in a hut covered with thatch?), He builds bridges, stores are filled up with goods, jeans for every taste, there are so many cars that there are traffic jams everywhere and everyone is dissatisfied, they have a two-story mansion with a lawn and a garage with a pair of Mercedes, you see, no, the salary of 40 thousand, again, is small, you can't buy a cool "zip" ... throw it off in disgrace ..., and Navalny, or this, well, whose gazes are turned inward, in, Gozman, let's choose him ..., he will give us everything, we will live, spilled raspberries ...

And in general, what a bad habit of taking a person, asking his opinion, and then extrapolating it to the entire social group to which he can be ranked? They would have conducted a poll among the Young Guard. I am sure there would have been many times more enthusiastic exclamations. I turned 27 the other day. All my entourage, including the offspring of influential regional functionaries, say one thing - the regime is stagnating and no longer adequately responding to challenges, which means that its end is just a matter of time.

                  I wonder where the figure of 62,74 dollars per thousand cubic meters (about 3800-4000 rubles) came from? This is probably in Moscow and for Moscow, but in the regions the average price per 1000 meters is 8200-8600 rubles! And this is 125-130 dollars! That is, the price for domestic consumers almost came close to the notorious European prices of $ 147!

            and we want something from the state, although the state is the owner of Gazprom, it owns only 50% of the shares (+1 vote).

      good Exactly. Promoting the idea of ​​"prosperity and well-being" to the population, when the growth of pensions and wages of the bulk of the population does not even cover inflation, and bureaucratic capitalism flourishes in the country:
      To begin with, it should be said that in Russia bureaucratic capitalismAccording to various estimates, the state controls from 50 to 70% of the country's GDP. But the figures that appear in the Western press are surprising, to say the least: "One generation of oligarchs who are now well over 60 or a little over 70 controls a huge share of the $ 1,7 trillion Russian economy.". I remind you that the whole Gazprom is now worth less than $ 100 billion (although the tab is $ 159 billion)., - says the head of the information and analytical center "Alpari" Alexander Razuvaev.

        And I no longer want any movement in the style: "to the ground, and then ..." Although I'm no longer young. Just as I remember what happened in the early 90s. Or grandfather's stories about the times of the civil war.

        By the way to the question of dvizhuha. A couple of years ago, in Krasnodar, at the intersection of Kotovsky and the Red Partisans, during the construction of the next commercial and office building, a mass grave of those shot during the civil war was excavated.
        And it is not a fact that in the event of another such "movement" it will not be described by a phrase6 and who is now at the expense, everyone wonders for himself.

    The trouble is that Putin demonstrates Russia's successes solely in international politics.
    At home, except for a variety of "Streams" there is nothing to boast of. Well, except for a ride on the Crimean bridge by train ...
    Putin's message to the federal assembly is coming soon.
    Unusually early - in January.
    Perhaps Garant understood - it’s time to change the government. The current economy can not or does not want to ..
    But the government does not care about the interests of the people. For them, we are not even an electorate - after all, ministers are appointed, not elected.
    So, amorphous substance. Source of taxes ...

      All these manipulations with public consciousness will bring absolutely no benefit. If people take Zheglov's phrase with a bang:

      the food is that Putin demonstrates Russia's successes solely in international politics.

      Hike upstairs simply divided spheres of influence and try not to interfere with each other. VVP with Shoigu and Lavrov are playing in foreign policy, while Dimon and his friends are eating up on the inside. And the question "who will change whom" is not yet up to them.

    Usually, a person thinks about the head of state when it becomes difficult for him. For example, under Khrushchev they scolded him in whispers at all angles. They simply didn’t notice Brezhnev. Perhaps some people from the intelligentsia murmured. But ordinary people didn’t bother with his rule. I don’t know how, but I am more annoyed by the affairs of petty bureaucracy. Rather, his inaction.

    Putin was seated in the president’s chair by the oligarchic elite, when it dawned on her that in the West nobody really needs them from the word at all. And that soon the West itself will come and bring democracy to the bombers and take away everything he needs, and they will have nothing to rob. And then we got a super hockey player, a super pilot, judoka, etc. etc.

    If someone does not like the West and the West is trying to omit a person with the help of his dirty provocations, dirty articles, and various kinds of inferences, you can be sure that this is a person who can be fully trusted! West offers instead of not a good Putin, a good Sobchak? If people like her fall into this position, this will be the beginning of the end of Russia.

    There are no irreplaceable ones, and when Putin and the era of Putin leave, people will look at this time differently, someone with horror that they lived with the current president at that time and someone with regret and everything will depend on who comes to replace him and who they choose and how the politics will change for the people of the new president

      If Putin is replaced by his henchman, then almost all thieves will remain with the loot. And if a completely new person comes, not from the Putin team, then the loot can return to the state (50% probability) or the loot will go into the hands of other people (50% probability). Do you think it's worth the risk for 50%? I think it’s worth it, since the current situation leaves 100% everything as before.

      In general, I doubt that social elevators exist where either for any significant number of people. And in most cases there is an opportunity to rise, but not by elevator by pressing a button. And on the stairs with a substantial number of steps and without railings.
      But everyone wants an elevator.

    "Thus, it is very difficult for Russians, especially young people who have not seen another ruler in their life, apart from “castling” with Medvedev, to imagine Russia without Putin. It is this identification that is the basis of the cult of stability. And it is not for nothing that the younger generation recognizes that protests are good, but suppressing protests is also good, otherwise chaos is coming."- I am very glad that a smart new generation of young people has grown up in Russia! If you look closely at what has grown up in the West, you are taken aback.
