“The time of great change has come”: How did the West react to the change of the Russian government

“The time of great change has come”: How did the West react to the change of the Russian government

In the West, they quite definitely reacted to the resignation of the government of Dmitry Medvedev. American and European media agree: the ex-prime minister was demoted, but a cabinet change will not lead to large-scale changes in Russian political life.


Bloomberg admits that the resignation of Dmitry Medvedev and his cabinet came as a surprise to the world community. And this is not surprising, since for one and a half decades, Medvedev played a very important role in Russian politics, and for four years he even "replaced" Vladimir Putin as head of the Russian state.

The New York Times compares Putin’s New Year’s reshuffle with the actions of his predecessor, Boris Yeltsin, after the shooting of parliament in October 1993. As expected, the Western press considers the proposals of the Russian president to reform the country's fundamental law - the Constitution - as evidence of his desire to maintain the highest power in Russia even after the presidential election in 2024.

The Guardian author also holds a similar point of view: Putin can take over the experience of his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev, who formally resigned as president, but in fact retained power and control over the political processes in Kazakhstan.

Forbes believes that the renewal of the government’s personnel will not affect Vladimir Putin’s real power. Regardless of the figures included in the new cabinet, the president will retain control over both the government and all branches of government in the country.

Reuters emphasizes the apolitical nature of the new head of government, Mikhail Mishustin. Indeed, the former head of the Federal Tax Service has never before been seen even trying to make himself known as a politician.

Technocrat and performer, but not a political leader. However, that was exactly what Vladimir Putin himself was until 1999, who headed the Federal Security Service for only a short time, and before that he worked in purely hardware positions in the presidential administration and the St. Petersburg city hall.

However, the Western media agree that in Russia the time of “great changes” has come. Indeed, the political regime, which had been formed many years ago and was fairly mothballed, needed a major shake-up, and Vladimir Putin seemed to decide to make this shake-up on his own, without waiting for any political upheaval in the country.

Having made a “steed,” Vladimir Putin again warned for some time that the extra-parliamentary opposition would intensify and the undesirable outcome of the State Duma elections. Now Putin’s hands are untied: as long as Russia adapts to the new composition of the government and meets with Mikhail Mishustin as prime minister, a lot of time will pass.

By the way, the Western press speaks of Mishustin with undisguised respect. Indeed, the new Russian prime minister is known in the world as an effective manager. In a rather short period of time, he managed to turn a thoroughly corrupt tax service into an absolutely modern and effective institution, an analogue of which is difficult to find even in the West.

Mishustin restructured and digitalized the tax service, turning the previously rather cumbersome structure into an effective system,

- writes Agence France-Presse.

Of course, while in the West they do not give forecasts as to whether Mikhail Mishustin will be able to modernize the Russian government, and most importantly, the country's socio-economic sphere, due to problems in which President Putin, by and large, was forced to dismiss Medvedev’s government.

          The best way to find out your flaws is to listen to the enemy. The method works at the state level. The unsightly truth that will not be shown on Russian TV is always with pleasure the enemy will tell.

      I looked through the comments. The lion's part is a showdown, in fact, a little. I agree with Vasily50 and loess also infuriates me wildly, so I ventured to publish my duratsky opinion on the appointment of Mishustin. At the first moment, having seen the portrait, I thought - was Mishustin Jewish. Understand correctly, I respect Jews, even envy them somewhere. But life taught me that if a Jew becomes a boss somewhere, then very soon there will be a lot of them. And in this case - it's overkill. But no - not a Jew. Then I read the data on the huge incomes of the Mishustins. But I think. that in this case it’s not about corruption, just a person “knows the moves”, and this can only be envied. Why am I sure that Mr. Mishustin will now be “in control” on three sides: from the Presidential Administration, the State Department (Caatsa Law) and Navalny. But the GDP knows about it. It's just that a person, like Ostap Bender, knows the legal ways of receiving money that do not contradict the Criminal Code.

      Oh come on you. He is much better than Medvedev. Rotating in such circles and in such an industry, one can be either a corrupt thief through or through, or a strong cunning tough one. It seems to me that Mishustin is exactly the 2nd option. Putin is now extremely careful in staffing, and the fact that Mishustin refused to speak at the Gaidar forum already says a lot. We are not waiting for a liberal-corrupt prime minister, but a truly tough leader who will build a well-functioning system in the work of ministries, according to which every ruble will be counted.

        About the denial of the Gaidar forum with Chubais is a set off. An interesting direction of movement is assumed. Especially considering that Chubais is still such a gray cardinal unsinkable from a team of reformers. Medvedev was definitely not lowered, the prime minister was removed from him, and now he seems to be quietly engaged in analysis, moving the country's development strategy. In general, the GDP decision is 5+.

      Zyablintsev, not in the eyebrow, but right between the eyes!
      Quietly permission was given to the tax service to catch tax evaders by car number, and on December 20 a law was passed according to which from March 1 of this year, traffic police has the right to use a stun gun. And now, imagine, colleagues, the following picture: you, the tax evader, are driving along the highway, and two are coming out of the bushes - a traffic police officer and a tax inspector. "Ah, you did not pay the tax?!?" You mumble: “Yes I, yes that, this and that ...” And then the angry servants drag you into the bushes. The tax inspector takes the tax from you, and the traffic police nickname hits you with a stun gun!

      But with the Central Bank ambush.
      The Central Bank owns a 50% stake in Sberbank + 1 voting share. The remaining shares are owned by the state. The Government of the Russian Federation cannot nationalize Sberbank - there is no such law, therefore, in order to make it fully state-owned, it is forced to start the redemption of these shares from the Central Bank. That is the decision made. But there is a bargain!
      Nabiullina demands for shares of Sberbank 2, 8 trillion rubles, that is, at market value, and says that after receiving this money he will return them to the budget. But what is the return mechanism? And this is: he will buy gold and shares of foreign companies with this money and put all this in foreign banks. That is, in fact, it will leave the good in the form of stocks and gold where it previously lay, only by indicating its RF.
      Thus, for the purchase of Sberbank, it is planned to kill 2 trillion rubles in the National Welfare Fund. Make them incapacitated. The central bank is the regulator, he is the master-master. Putin demands money from the Fund for the promised additional payments to the population, and this, together with the payment for shares of Sberbank, will seriously bleed the part of the Fund available for spending. To pay nat. few projects will remain - not to bring the Fund to an unacceptably small volume. So, increasing tax collection, it’s very playful to turn around the nat. projects within the limits of the possible, seek investment. Hence --- zinger Mishustin.
      Still there is the background in the redemption of Sberbank. I’ll say something about this later.

    In a rather short period of time, he managed to turn a thoroughly corrupt tax service into an absolutely modern and effective institution, an analogue of which is difficult to find even in the West.

    I wonder if everyone really agrees with this phrase?
    However, the Western mass media agree that in Russia the time of “great changes” has come

    Well, congratulations.

        I wonder if everyone really agrees with this phrase?

        Yaroslav Kuzminov, the rector of the Gaidar HSE, would agree with this phrase - the husband of Elvira Nabiulina, head of the Central Bank of Russia, independent of the government of the Russian Federation, who similarly commented on RT's appointment of the head of the Federal Tax Service of Russia Mikhail Mishustin as prime minister.
        I know Mikhail Mishustin as an effective manager, able to implement ambitious projects in a short time.
        The HSE knows this well, since in 2008 he became the inspirer, organizer and scientific adviser of the Institute of Real Estate Economics (Institute of Tax Management and Real Estate Economics, HSE).
        Mikhail Vladimirovich is the person who perfectly knows how to work for the result, achieve fast and effective changes, and carry out large-scale digital transformations.
        He is one of the most successful leaders in the public sector, the results of his work in the Federal Tax Service are clearly visible to business and citizens.
        In terms of the transparency of its work, the tax system in the Russian Federation in terms of the quality of interaction with taxpayers, in terms of digitalization, surpasses analogues even in some developed countries, in which such systems have been formed for many decades.

        In other words, the Rector of the Higher School of Economics, who is the husband of Elvira Nabiulina, is completely SATISFIED both by Mishustin’s previous fiscally effective work in the Federal Tax Service of Russia and in his future work as Prime Minister of the Russian Federation in the context of Mishustin’s preservation of the former liberal course of financial and economic foreign and domestic policy of the government of the Russian Federation and the Central Bank of Russia.

        I don’t agree.
        About 4 years ago I paid a car tax. Money went unclear where. Several years are required to pay again. Several times I brought documents about payment "in the window." Oh, we were wrong, the matter is under control, we’ll fix it. Through the court initiated a penalty. From the bailiffs, we seek the letter! I’m about to pay documents to them. Bailiffs - need paper from the tax. In tax, oh, and now we can’t give it, it’s first in one department, then in the second, then in the third, then to the bailiffs. I am to the bailiffs: well, I paid! They: we advise the court to reverse the decision. I canceled the court. So Tax TESTED !! Now with tax only in writing. No windows. There is just a mess. One “window” does not know what the other does. I have THREE only written replies with an apology. In December, I called the "hot line" PAMAGEEEEE! We connect with your tax. Connected. I-why the debt is not written off and penalize one and a half things? They are the one, but they did not answer us. So you have the same "control" ?! So you did not apply anymore! This is not tax, but quiet horror. Until now, public services and the website tax debts are hanging. It remains to write personally to the guarantor. This is a complete northern animal.

      1. The fact that in several years he created a system that is extremely effective and very convenient for most people is indisputable. 10 years ago, in order to pay property taxes, I defended the queues at the bank: at that time everyone had to pay. Now I do it in a couple of clicks in my account. Fast, convenient, reliable.
      2. The burden on the business, and indeed on all of us (we often pay taxes at inflated cadastral values, and it is not so easy to defend our rights here) has clearly increased. And his "merit" in this is substantial.
      3. As the Chinese said, God forbid we live in an era of change. Especially the great ones.
      4. What, then, is Mishustin good at? At least the fact that this is not Medvedev. That was urgently needed 8 years ago at the premiere not to put.
      How is the promised land, Alexander? I wanted to go to you in January, warm my belly in Eilat, and visit Yershalaim, but over time it didn’t work out. drinks

      Mishustin, it turns out, had a choice like Comrade Saakhov from the Caucasian captive — that is, very small: either he is being led by the president’s offer to go to the premieres, or the president is leading him to the prosecutor. The siloviki had claims against Mishustin. There are many controversial moments in the biography; corruption in the Federal Tax Service is serious - only last year the FSB cleared out several regional tax services.
      Not to mention the Moscow tax authorities.

    Let them want what they think, I personally do not care about the opinion of foreigners. But the fact that this decision of the Dark One could upset and bring down some of the agreements undercover is good. And what will happen in reality, wait and see.

    Putin is apparently preparing a successor. 53 years old, technocrat, not a member of the parties. In my opinion, if the premiership is mastered, then the role of the head is ensured.

    "Time of great change" I open the news. I read the following:
    1. The dates for the adoption of new medical examination rules for drivers have been announced. That is, again, Putin’s words that this nonsense has sunk into oblivion.
    2. Russia increased investments in US government securities to $ 11,5 billion. This, apparently, in order to avoid the dollar.
    Medvedev and the Government resigned. But nothing changes and does not change.

    Quote: "... an institution whose analogue is difficult to find even in the West." The end of the quote.
    The author considers the West as a standard. Here you are not England - you need to dig deeper. Or do not dig.

    "The time has come for great change."

    Changing something very bad makes sense only for good, and not just bad. Otherwise, then they will only compare Mishustin with Medvedev, as now the 2000s and the 1990s. And for some reason, little remember the 1970s and Kosygin. Why? Because this comparison will be very much not in favor of the current regime.

    It's not my business ... I do not care who will be "Mr. Twister future Minister."
    I’m just pondering, at the level of “technical training college”: commanded, say, Mr. “X” at the factory by a team of, say, 100 people. He commanded pretty well.
    And he is offered to command a "team" in the amount of 170 million. At the same time, immediately at ten or a hundred or thousand "factories, factories, parachutes" (and you can even without quotes), where experience is needed to establish communications (and so that they are friend not gobbled up !!!) along, across, crosswise and any other "squiggle". Mmmmmm .... alarming somehow ...

      The government has resigned and, in general, everyone understands that it has left because of failures in economic policy. Moreover, the degree of distortion of reality on his part turned out to be so high that it is not even clear what and how can be discussed in economic policy. Well, for example, the GDP index-deflator according to the results of 2018, according to Rosstat, is 110.8% (as of today, it is constantly slightly correcting), that is, inflation in our economy is more than 10%. What 4% were officials talking about?

      In addition to the government, the Central Bank is also responsible for the economy. But here he does it, quite frankly, rather strange. The fact is that, according to the Constitution, he is responsible for the “stability of the national currency”. But, let's say, if you look at the results of 2015, then in the ranking of the stability of world currencies we took an honorable last place. Below is the Ukrainian hryvnia. Someone might be surprised, especially given the fact that the chairman of the Central Bank Nabiullina received the international title of "best chairman of the Central Bank." So the question is, what did you get it for?

      The answer is actually very simple. The fact is that the leadership of the Russian Central Bank considers itself not as officials of the Russian Federation, but as representatives of the world dollar (Bretton Woods) system. We will not even remind you that Russian President Vladimir Putin said not so long ago that the Bretton Woods system has died, we only note that the main problem of this system today is the lowered dollar liquidity. So, maintaining this liquidity, from the point of view of the IMF, is today the main task of the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance, that is, the monetary authorities of Russia.

      Note that the tribute that we (through the budget system) pay the world dollar system with the help of the so-called "Cut-off level", today is quite large (more than $ 20 per barrel of oil). But the Central Bank also maintains an extremely low efficiency of ruble investments in the Russian economy, which forces the owners of rubles to spend them mainly on currency speculation, that is, just to maintain the liquidity of the global dollar system. The level of monetization of the Russian economy (that is, the ratio of the expanded ruble money supply to GDP) is only about 40%, with a norm of 90-110%.


      And if there are no ruble investments, then there are no jobs, no salaries, household expenses that form GDP are falling. The share of private spending in the GDP structure is about 50%, with a norm of 60-70%. Accordingly, the standard of living of the population is low, as the President spoke about in his last Address. But the President can punish the government for an inefficient budget policy, and who will punish the Central Bank for low incomes of the population?

      It is in the United States that the Federal Reserve has two so-called “mandates,” one related to the stability of the national currency, and the second to unemployment. In our country, the Central Bank is not responsible for the economic growth rate, nor for the standard of living of the population, nor for the level of unemployment. Which allows his leadership to deal with only one thing - maintaining the liquidity of the global dollar system. And the natural question arises: how long.

      Moreover, we have quite positive experience with a different monetary policy. When Gerashchenko, in 1999-2002 growth rates were up to 10% per year (or even more), and this was before the start of high oil prices. And with the advent of Ignatieff and, especially, Nabiullina, the policy changed according to the IMF patterns and, as a result, obtaining a loan became a huge problem for the enterprise. Accordingly, the pace of economic growth began to fall.

      Until recently, it was difficult to change this situation: the government and the Central Bank worked together, distorted the statistics of economic growth and inflation together (everything is simple: reduce inflation down by a percentage, the same percentage immediately goes to GDP growth), they constantly praised each other. But the government was strictly indicated that it was wrong. Is it time to point out the same thing to the leadership of the Central Bank?

      Someone will say that, they say, this is unconstitutional. I will answer this simply: constitutionally everything that in the current situation leads to an increase in incomes of the population. Because they have already fallen below a critical level. And the only question is to come up with a completely legal way to put the Central Bank leadership in its place. Do you think this is impossible?

    Everyone finds out the relationship, and I will speak on the topic (as I see). It is difficult so far to say something definite about Mishustin to an ordinary person (he still hasn’t done much as a candidate for the premiere, although the little that he did does, in my opinion, right and good). And for those few of his previous media appearances, I liked him. I was impressed by a living normal person who knows well, understands what he is doing, and does his job well. They say he is a good specialist, organizer and leader. Let's hope that he will be good at the post of prime minister. I do not think that he will be worse than Medvedev.

    - Personally, I already wrote that ... that our guarantor is going to resign voluntarily before the end of his presidential term ... and is just going to "become Nazarbayev" ...
    - I.e. a person who does not officially hold senior government posts, but ... but ... but ... but at the same time all financial, economic and military-political power in the country is concentrated in his hands ... - Such a person in Kazakhstan is Nazarbayev ...
    - Our guarantor is going to become the same person in Russia ...
    - Our guarantor very cleverly and clearly brought D. Medvedev out of attack, easily sacrificing the entire government ... -Now all responsibility for all past (and future, of course) falls on the newly elected M. Mishustin ... - And after half a year nobody will even remember about Medvedev ... - it was an ordinary "empty place" ... - This Mishustin will answer for everything ...
    - Thus, our guarantor immediately "kills two birds with one stone":
    1. Saves for himself Medvedev, who at any moment can be useful to him (after all, he always came in handy for almost 20 years);
    2. Our guarantor shows all the oligarchs that he “doesn’t surrender" his own "and they are completely safe while he will lead them (and that they should not be too" independent "and continue to support him in everything); Thus, all the financial, economic and power levers will remain in his hands ...
    - And the State Duma itself and the president (who will be elected) will continue to play the role of “cosmetics” and the appearance of “state power” and “head of state” ...- noisy, debating, discussing something and supposedly solving state issues ...- Here and that’s it ...
