With Medvedev, but without a government: what to do next with United Russia


Yesterday's resignation of the Russian government put the United Russia party in a strange position: United Russia members with a parliamentary majority no longer have (yet) their cabinet. What to do next, how to get out of this situation?


So far, ex-Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who received the specially created position of Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, remains the leader of the United Russia party. But for a party that has an overwhelming (constitutional) majority of seats in the State Duma and is actually the ruling party, this is not enough. Indeed, under the changed conditions, United Russia, at least for now, has lost contact with the government.

The new Prime Minister, Mikhail Mishustin, is a technocrat, not a politician. He never engaged in political activities, was not a public figure, but he established himself as a good specialist in his field at the head of the Federal Tax Service. Whether he will pull the government to the same level that the Federal Tax Service had raised in due time, time will tell.

True, United Russia still has the opportunity to urgently co-opt Mishustin into the party’s leadership, which will give the parliamentary majority a formal connection with the government. But will Mishustin himself agree to this, or more precisely, will Putin agree that the new prime minister be simultaneously among the leaders of United Russia?

It is possible that the resignation of the government was the result of the president’s desire to completely dissociate himself from United Russia, which is rapidly losing popular support and is increasingly associated with pension reform and other unpopular decisions in the socio-economic sphere. Now Putin wants his own name to be associated with EP as little as possible. And the resignation of Medvedev from the post of head of government in this regard is one of the steps.


So far, Dmitry Medvedev, as stated by Secretary of the EP General Council Andrei Turchak, will remain the party chairman. This is very convenient for Putin, since popular discontent will now be successfully sent to the party with the majority of deputy seats, while its leader - Dmitry Medvedev - occupies only a formal position and claims, in fact, there is no one, except for the Duma deputies - United Russia.

On the other hand, the resignation of the government can also be beneficial for United Russia, since Medvedev’s rating in Russian society is extremely low, he is blamed for lowering the standard of living of the population, and the party was inevitably associated with the head of government. Now the party will have the opportunity to move away from the Council of Ministers and its actions. True, then the party will become a political force "in itself."

Mishustin’s “apolitical” cabinet will bear full responsibility for his policy, and the Duma faction of “United Russia” will no longer be personified with the government. Not for nothing that some experts are ironic that after Medvedev left the post of prime minister, many in United Russia just breathed a sigh of relief.

Those proposals in the social sphere made by Vladimir Putin, of course, will allow to slightly reduce the degree of public discontent. Moreover, Putin chose a very suitable time for voicing them. Now, maternity capital for the first child, and social assistance to families with children, and free meals for younger students will be associated in society with the new government, which will have to implement these instructions of the president.

Only one thing is obvious - Russia today and in the foreseeable future will remain the “Putin country”, in which the government, the State Duma, and the “ruling" political party are only instrumental in nature, and the head of state rises above everyone, skillfully tacking and worrying including the preservation of their own power and high rating in society.

    I do not want to offend anyone, but EP is more like an obedient mass of people with mandates, rather than political power. So the prime minister will be the prime minister.

      I remember the times when the "main" did not have obedient parties ... So such a mess was in the country as a whole, and in the Duma in particular. If not a meeting, they wave their fists. True and "main" was such that it is sickening to remember ...
      I’m what it is for ... The "main" should have the opportunity to carry out his decisions in "life", and not engage in the beliefs of "naughty". They should also be, but in such quantity to be able to convey to the "main" alternative point of view and present arguments, but not in such quantity as to interfere with work.

          But how could it be otherwise if the EdRo in the Duma has an absolute majority, which, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, the SR and the LDPR cannot outweigh even if united? If “EdRo” “flies” during the Duma elections, then it will be possible to slow down laws that run counter to the interests of the population, and other parties represented in the Duma will turn into a real political force and cease to play the role of extras. In another way. So in 2021, the population should not grind the stools in the kitchens with their fifth point, but go to the polls and vote.

            “if EdRo“ flies ”during the Duma elections in order to“ fly ”, we need to vote against. I have been voting against it regularly since 2021, but out of my friends, only 1997 still votes regularly, and most of it is at home.
            “EdRikam” is just what they need: they and their friends will vote “for” and the Hare. In the "span" we find ourselves

              It’s not necessary to think about future elections now, but about the upcoming (very soon!) “Referendum” or what it was called (because there is no law on referendum) A popular vote.
              And the main thing in this event is not so much the functions of the branches of power and their redistribution (which is also absolutely important), but the WITHDRAWAL OF RUSSIA FROM THE JURISDICTION of international law, the submission of ALL international laws, rules and agreements of the Russian Constitution! That is, the removal of Russia from under EXTERNAL MANAGEMENT.
              Alas, that’s right now.
              The adoption of amendments to the Constitution will allow Russia a lot of what was previously inaccessible. But what they tried not to say out loud.
              * The Budget Rule - from the IMF, which limited Russia in spending its own funds, investing its own economy, obliged to invest the economy of its direct enemy, or simply put it in a pill. And keep the eggplant away from Russia.
              * Uncontrollability of the Central Bank of Russia ... of Russia itself. A kind of branch of the US Federal Reserve to control Russian finances.
              * Binding decisions of the European Court of Human Rights for Russia.
              And a bunch of such treaties, rules and obligations, depriving Russia of sovereignty.
              This has been talked about for a long time and the need to get rid of such dependence has long overripe.
              Already few believed that we would decide on this ... but Putin decided.
              It remains to vote.
              And the "spell will fall."
              And everything else is tinsel.

              Why now ? This year, the global economic crisis of the terrible Great Depression is expected. In order to resist and evade the worst of its consequences, Russia must be sovereign, have free hands on any decisions.
              Yes, it seems to me that this is obvious to any educated person.

              And we will look at the new government, and evaluate it - according to their affairs. Then we will draw conclusions. It has not yet been appointed - only the prime minister.
              But the mere fact that the entire GOVERNMENT of MEDVEDEV has resigned is already a celebration of the soul and great hope.

              And yet - Edro is now left with Medvedev at the head ... wink
              And an alternative force, consolidating healthy forces, has not yet been observed. Will such a force appear or some kind of "nuclear reaction" will take place in the Edr itself ... Time will tell.

                  Yes, you never know what the media say, it is important what is written in the Constitution. And it is written there the SECURITY OF INTERNATIONAL LAW.
                  What about World Bank decisions?
                  Also optional?
                  And why is it being executed?
                  And by whose decree in Russia did they raise the retirement age?
                  What about taxes?
                  The same VAT?
                  What about juvenile justice? Is she homegrown too?
                  And much more is obliged (!) To fulfill Russia, in accordance with its current Constitution.
                  If all this suits you, you can believe ... the media, they will definitely tell the truth.
                  But Putin, as it turned out, is not happy.
                  And he gave this decision to the court of the People.
                  If one of the people does not want to use this right - his right.

                I read the corrections today. I did not see much restriction, which I liked very much. If there is a limitation, then in terms of the formation of the socio-economic bloc of the government, which is controlled by the prime minister. Security forces remain subordinate to the president.

          But am I against it? I absolutely do not consider ideal the very principle of the existing governance of the country. But even in these conditions, the head of state should be able to work. And in the circumstances, a “tame” political party is not the worst option. And it doesn’t matter if it’s either the Liberal Democratic Party or the beer society. It is important who makes the decisions. And on the basis of what data he does it.

Then, at least, different crooks would not climb into the deputies. After all, this would not be the main activity, but an additional burden. But in this option, there are also enough minuses with sound thinking. Although the advantages, in my opinion, are also there.

This applies specifically to that deputy that is now. Firstly, they are simply simple, again, in my opinion, there are too many, secondly, actresses, athletes ... Well, they got into the deputies due to fame, and not for real affairs, agree?
                  It is just necessary to somehow create the conditions so that crooks do not fall into power. Or they would end up in single copies and not at the expense of simple fame or family ties. This is one of the options. Once again, I do not have a clear picture. Perhaps you have it.

        The activities of the “main” and his opponents should be aimed at the stable improvement of the country's economic development. improving the welfare of all segments of the population. The last years of the majority of E.R. did not lead to the implementation of the tasks and promises of the leading majority in all areas of government. All kinds of National projects are not being implemented, there is no demand from responsible persons for their implementation. Just with every new message from President R.F. new tasks are set without analyzing the implementation of the previous message. Will the end of such irresponsibility of the authorities to their voters.

      what to do next "United Russia"
      Let’s say frankly - there is no place to trust the party in power. For many years, this party has obediently adopted all unpopular, antisocial laws that cause just indignation and indignation among citizens. Poverty and lack of rights of the people are fixed by numerous legislative norms, stamped by the aggressive Duma majority from EdRa. The latest striking examples are monstrous pension reform and tax increases.
      Reforming United Russia is a bastard. Usually, in such cases, they make a toast “for the success of our hopeless cause.” The best reform of “United Russia” is its dissolution. IMHO.

        Dmitry Medvedev, as deputy head of the Russian Security Council, will remain chairman of the United Russia party.

        He will have more free time to realize his talent as a politician. Back in 2012, he declared that he would not leave politics.
        Mikhail Mishustin one year younger non-partisan. The business executive is the "manager". (by the way brings up three sons).
        Again, Vladimir Vladimirovich is ready to "share" his powers with the Duma so that it bears its responsibility for the appointment of key ministers.

    So far, ex-Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who received the specially created position of Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, remains the leader of the United Russia party. But for a party that has an overwhelming (constitutional) majority of seats in the State Duma and is actually the ruling party, this is not enough. Indeed, under the changed conditions, United Russia, at least for now, has lost contact with the government.

    It is not clear what they lost.
    The government has acted, and is acting.
    Let and IO.

    No matter how hard Putin tries, he will forgive and forget the pension-type reform. He used to think when he broke his word and publicly drowned for cannibalistic anti-people’s decisions .. Yes, and all the other cute tricks people associate precisely with the president, clearly understanding that without his will - Nedimon would never have decided on such dirty tricks ..

    The policy of the authorities is to levy taxes from business and the population on the army, health care, social services and the bureaucracy. The appointment of the tax specialist Mishustin only confirms this. The issues of economic transformation are given to the oligarchy. For the majority of the population, nothing will change.

    The new Prime Minister, Mikhail Mishustin, is a technocrat, not a politician. He never engaged in political activities, was not a public figure, but he established himself as a good specialist in his field at the head of the Federal Tax Service. Whether he will pull the government to the same level that the Federal Tax Service had raised in due time, time will tell.
    Time it certainly shows a lot of things. But one thing can be said, Mishustin certainly will not be worse than Medvedev.

    This is very convenient for Putin, since popular discontent will now be successfully sent to the party with the majority of deputy seats, while its leader - Dmitry Medvedev - occupies only a formal position and claims, in fact, there is no one, except for the Duma deputies - United Russia.

    Did A.A. Turchak also say that? If possible, let me know where and when. Or is it an interpretation of the author?

    True, United Russia still has the opportunity to urgently co-opt Mishustin into the party’s leadership, which will give the parliamentary majority a formal connection with the government. But will Mishustin himself agree to this, or more precisely, will Putin agree that the new prime minister be simultaneously among the leaders of United Russia?

    Well, if Mishustin needs to live well, bring down his rating below the baseboard, he will. laughing

    While Dmitry Medvedevas stated by Secretary of the EP General Council Andrei Turchak, will remain the party chairman. This is very convenient for Putin, because popular discontent will now be successfully sent towards the party with the majority of seats, however, its leader - Dmitry Medvedev - occupies only a formal position and claims, in fact, no one to make, except for the Duma deputies - United Russia.


    Few people know that the "Party Leader" ("Chairman", as amended by the EP Charter) is indeed a formal position, bearing "representative functions".
    7.1.3. Party Chairman acts without a power of attorney, represents the Party in relations with Russian, international and foreign state and non-state bodies and organizations, public associations, individuals and legal entities, the media.


    The post of party chairman should not be confused with the post of chairman of the party’s High Councilwho, according to the charter, "is the Party’s highest elected official."

    7.2.2. Chairman of the High Council of the Party:
    7.2.2.1. carries out general political leadership of the Party, acts on behalf of the Party without a power of attorney;
    7.2.2.2. heads the High Council and the Bureau of the High Council of the Party, distributes powers between members of the High Council and members of the Bureau of the High Council of the Party;
    7.2.2.3. directs and coordinates the activities of the General Council, the Presidium of the General Council and the Central Executive Committee of the Party;


    Since its introduction in April 2008, Boris Gryzlov has been Chairman of the Supreme Council of the United Russia Party.
