Reflections on regional power after changes in the Constitution of the Russian Federation


The tension in the country caused by the upcoming changes in the constitution does not subside. Perhaps for most ordinary people this tension is hardly noticeable ... There are no discussions on television screens, there are no disputes in the Duma, there are no revelations of someone’s machinations ... The usual quiet work of lawmakers.


However, those who are interested in the issue today, it is clear that the work to amend the Basic Law is huge. For example, today more than a hundred proposals have already been submitted to the commission for the preparation of a new edition of the constitution. But the work has just begun.

About the state system of Russia


It is important for me, like many other citizens of Russia, to understand several issues. Will the changes in the state structure of the country affect? In other words, will we really become a federation or maintain status without real content, as is happening today?

Who will govern the country and what term of office will this be limited to? Will we continue to draw managerial personnel from Moscow and St. Petersburg? Or will there be an opportunity to be promoted to senior government posts by regional officials? There are many questions.

Let's start with the establishment of the state. Since the establishment of Soviet power, Russia has become known as federal. RSFSR. The word "federation" then migrated to the post-Soviet name of the country.

Are we a federation? Are our regions and national republics state entities? Personally, I can not unambiguously answer this question. Yes, we have our own regional thoughts, governments - and so what? What can all these bodies decide without coordination with the Kremlin? We select governors. And who accepts the resignation of these elected officials?

An elected official cannot be “eternal”


President Putin voiced an important decision. On limiting the term of office of the President of the Russian Federation. I completely agree that a long stay in the highest position in the state is nonsense. We are all human, and nothing human is alien to us. Any leader cannot live alone. He lives among people.

Gradually, not only professional, but also personal ties are being established. Good friends and friends appear. The official often does not even know how his personal acquaintance affected the life of another person. Slaughter, of which in any office in abundance, notice everything. And they will help a personal friend of "himself" to advance through the ranks, and get a profitable contract. Just in case. Suddenly, where fishing and people remember them with a kind word. And the owner will hear ...

There is another factor, the importance of which is undeniable for the leader. The official should not sit too long in his place. Russian emperors still knew this truth. Why is it so alarming in the offices when appointing a new boss? Because the broom is new. He sees unnecessary and sweeps. Or ... make work! Moreover, the current order will be broken. Pull subordinates. Build your vision of work. And so it will last three to five years. Until it breaks the old system. Until he achieves an improvement in the work of his office. Another year or two will be spent on “polishing” the new system. And then?

Then everything. Stagnation. There are no new ideas. The system is working well. You can rest on your laurels and receive well-deserved rewards. But time does not stand still. Working conditions are changing rapidly. We need to break something again. I don’t want to. And it is not known what to build in return. And I don’t want to leave.

Are long-lived governors effective?


The federal center is still the center of the state. But in the federal state there are other centers - regional. And governors and heads of republics rule there. And their power is not much less than presidential at their level. Each of us sees the result of such a separation of power in our own city. Even in the appearance of the city, if you will.

Houses and roads may not be repaired for decades. A classic excuse: there is no money for everything. But if only the president of the country plans a visit to this same city or region, the money is immediately available. Roads become good, stucco and paint at home. Parks equip. Miracles, and only.

And here a question arises, which I will try to answer today. Why are some governors elected (before 2004), appointed (until 2012), elected for one term or even part of the term, while others sit on their estates for decades?

I specifically looked at the ratings of the regions of Russia in order to understand the system for evaluating the performance of governors. The oldest governor of Russia is Evgeny Savchenko. He has been leading the Belgorod region since 1993. 27 years! At one time, the region achieved significant success in the development of industry, agriculture, and the mining industry. Even in social programs there were significant changes for the better. Today, others may be leaders, but still, Belgorod region is definitely not an outsider.

Kaluga Governor Anatoly Artamonov with a rating at the beginning of the fourth ten, but in his twentieth year in service. Since 2007, the head of the Republic of Tuva, Sholban Karaool, has been unable to raise the republic above 84th place. There is still a relative centenarian in the regional government - Ramzan Kadyrov, but this is generally a separate topic for discussion.

Why are they re-elected?


This means that the region’s economic indicators do not always affect longevity. I have little faith that some governor or head of the republic would risk freedom and offer a bribe. One thing remains.

Namely, the use of administrative resources within the region, which, given the system of election of governors, is quite capable of ensuring the winning of the next elections in the region. That is, in the region, in my opinion, there is a lobbying system for “their” candidate. Indeed, approximately the same systems existed in other regions of Russia, judging by the complete loss of confidence in the elections by voters.

I can’t talk about all the regions in which recently elected new governors, but, as it seems to me, this state of affairs has been identified without much influence from the center. The local political elite has bothered people to hell. And ceased to be monolithic. Hence the criminal cases against senior officials of the regions. Hence the leak of information and so on. Every man for himself.

New “governor wave” or Putin’s smart plan?


By the way, another interesting detail is noticeable in the political life of the regions. What most prefers not to notice. Putin’s managerial training program has been launched. Most of the new governors are from there. Young, eager for power, not afraid to take responsibility, in a good way arrogant people.

A year or two ago, when the first signs of dissatisfaction with the work of the government appeared, a lot of attention was paid in the press to discussing candidates for the post of new prime minister. Then several names sounded at once.

If you follow Putin’s logic, governors who were elected three or less years ago today may be “trained” in managing large regions. Or pass an exam, if you like, on the ability to manage complex territorial entities. Simply put, today the president is looking, again, perhaps, for his successor. Time runs fast and there is not much time left until the end of the presidential term.

I perfectly understand the situation that will develop in 2024. Presidential elections. One of the candidates is Putin's clear favorite. The rest, as always, is something like Ksenia Sobchak. There will be a couple more from the same “Putin chicks,” but from parliamentary parties.

Elections will pass, the follower will get everything. Not like Vladimir Putin himself had in 2000. That's all. Not only the presidency, but also the already prepared local elite, which will become an ally. By the way, the same applies to the formation of the future government.

Incorporate into the constitution ...


Returning to the beginning of the conversation about the governors of the Russian regions, I want to make my proposal for changing the constitution. It is necessary to introduce a time limit (no more than two terms) for election to the post of governor of one region. It is one region.

So we can give the opportunity to competent leaders who feel their strength and ability to benefit, apply for the position of governor many times. The rotation of personnel, which only the lazy does not speak about today, will not be at the pointing finger from above, but at the request of the official himself. And the concentration of talented officials on the centimeter of Moscow or St. Petersburg land we will definitely reduce.

      This is a postulate. who owns .... a lot of what will strive to hold on to power in any way! "Revolution" from above can not be! They will bring some camouflage, because the tension in society is growing and a new generation is approaching, which does not suffer immeasurable patience and humility! Old slogans for the current government DO NOT WORK, because they are NOT theirs, this is obvious to EVERYONE!
      And their slogans are nothing more than slogan slogans. not responding to anyone’s requests, except for a handful of those who don’t care at all ....

        Indeed .. In the USSR there were many slogans and they responded to the requests of the masses .. now even slogans do not work .. good
        If you are a patriot, if you want confidence in the future, if you care about the fact that the population has been declining for the second year in Russia, if you want to see the country scientifically and technologically developed, if you are annoyed that the natural heritage of the country, for which you have shed the blood of our ancestors, and not in the same generation, now belongs to a narrow group of people, and so-called “partners” also have income from this, you should strive for socialism! And in every possible way to agitate for him! Only under socialism, did we become a great empire, a technologically developed country, with powerful industry and advanced science!

        I recall the "Outskirts of the USSR" stagnation.
        For example, in Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, the first secretary of the regional committee did not decide ANYTHING. ALL was in the hands of FAMILY clans. In Osh (1981), he died "from careless handling of a hunting carbine", although he was NEVER a hunter. The murder in the mountains of the Deputy Chairman of the Armed Forces of Kyrgyzstan in the same year.
        And the threats of the "small-town king" Adylov against MOST Rashidov. I recall Pikul’s novel “At the Back of the Russian Empire”. the same film "Stationery Rat." And the leadership of Adzharia (before Saakashvili’s arrival) was led for centuries by ONE family — first the princes, then the first secretaries of the regional committee.
        Nothing changed.
        Stalin wanted to put things in order with his Constitution (in particular, secret ballots and more).
        Received 1937 ... 1938.
        BUT the "fifth column", according to Harriman Roosevelt in the USSR, was almost destroyed.

          Small-town bar "goof" when the central government is engaged in something "more important" or in conjunction with them. It is obvious.
          Question WHAT TO DO ???
          The example of many “western dermocracies” is instructive and not only negatively. there are successful examples of how to do it, so that everything goes more or less HOW POSITIVE! ACCORDING TO LAW!
          In general, there are all kinds of examples.

      good Indeed, until the state becomes socially oriented, shaking up the government, changing the Constitution and other “transformations” are nothing more than another show ... which is designed to relieve tension in society.
      Only with the advent of the socialists can everything change. But they are not allowed to control even a cannon shot.

        Speaking specifically about the Constitution of the Russian Federation, then - yes, dear Author, most of the national entities in it are designated precisely as "the state".

          what I recalled a joke about the Babkin shed and the inscription on its wall. The mine was laid back in 1924. It was possible to call a unitary state federal only then. Understanding that neither one nor the other name says anything to people. I agree with your statement only in one case, if you allow me to correct your statement: - "Regions with elements of statehood." Not the state, but elements of the state. In this regard, even the communists were more honest. At least there were the Criminal Code of the Union Republics. Is there a Criminal Code, for example, Tatarstan or Adygea now?

            If the Constitution of the Russian Federation does not even have a clear emphasis on the fact that national entities are full-fledged states, then national entities themselves do not think so. For example, the Constitution of Udmurtia:

            "Udmurtia is a state within the Russian Federation that has historically been established on the basis of the exercise by the Udmurt nation and the people of Udmurtia of their inalienable right to self-determination." (article 1)

    Interested in federation. For Putin, Lenin planted a bomb. But Lenin gathered the country from what was left after the February coup and wars. Putin is out of the blue, ready to divide the country. With its current capabilities, it can easily equalize republics and regions. Thus, creating a single state, which he definitely will benefit.

      Putin came when the country was already divided according to documents and Chechnya was ready to get drunk with sovereignty.

        You, Mr. Petrov, have been on the site for a long time, and you know my beliefs (unless someone else is sitting under your account).
        You seem to know little about Chechnya.
        I said only one thing. If the federation remains, then in 50 years, or maybe there will be a new Yeltsin earlier, who will divide the federations for the sake of personal power.
        By the way, Mr. Petrov, you will not argue that Putin respects Yeltsin very much.

    Dear author.
    Any government system is based primarily on legislation.
    A lot is dependent on the availability of certain laws.
    The second pillar is the executive branch - the president, the prime minister, etc.
    The third hypostasis is the judiciary.

    We seem to have everything in stock.
    And our "crew" must go, as if on rails.
    But it goes either the wrong way, or at the wrong speed.
    Or even in reverse.

    Any strong executive power of the country is based on a strong parliamentary majority and on the support of the executive branch of the regions.
    And we have such a symbiosis - EP absorbed all the "cream of society."
    What this led to - no need to explain.

    One thing to understand.
    Only a system can be countered against a system.

    Even if you imagine the impossible, and imagine that during the next election a different, non-pro-Putin candidate wins, then again this does not change anything.
    Putin makes a smart move.
    Changes the Constitution and the form of government.
    Created over a state body - the Council of State, will incorporate the main levers of government. Including the appointment of ministers of law enforcement agencies.
    And this is the main thing.

    The President and the Prime Minister with their teams remain weak figures, accountable and controlled by the Chairman of the ToS.

    And here at least limit, at least do not limit the length of time in power - it does not give anything.

    But the figure of the Chairman of the Civil Assembly can be elected at least 10 times in a row - is this not specified in the Constitution?

    Everything is seen that way.

    In the Murmansk region, the governor is Mr. Andrei Chibis. His election slogan after the appointment of acting instead of Marina Kovtun, who left of her own free will and feels rather well at the moment, having welded up on posts (but this is a different story), there was - "Live in the North!". The fact that he himself will not live permanently in the North is 1000% clear. But there was a bunch of additional window dressing, monitoring and the next "defective menegar".

    Will we continue to draw managerial personnel from Moscow and St. Petersburg? Or will there be an opportunity to be promoted to the highest state posts by officials from the regions?

    I don’t know how in Izhevsk, but in Moscow the mayor is not called a “reindeer breeder”. Probably because he is not from St. Petersburg.

    Putin’s managerial training program has been launched; most of the new governors are from there. Young, eager for power, not afraid to take responsibility, in a good way arrogant people.
    I would like to hear the names of these young hungry people in order to understand the author’s idea more clearly - otherwise in the photo of the capital Konovalov from the Communist Party and Furgal from the LDPR, whom the media do not spoil, and which are clearly not from Putin’s program.

      Yes, a few months ago, back in the summer, I had a chance to read a large interview with the winners of the contest "Young Leaders of Russia". So, it seems, this competition is called. In extensive commentaries, the people laughed at these "leaders." Because the word "I" went through the word.
      I will develop ... I will achieve ... The prospects for my growth ...
      And in none of the proposals, none of the winners did not indicate the main thing - the understanding of responsibility at least for the production or institution entrusted to him. And even more so, the word was not said about responsibility to the people of Russia. As if in nature does not exist.

        interview with the winners of the contest "Young Leaders of Russia"

        A couple of years ago, one of the sons was among the finalists of this competition.
        When, after the semi-final, I saw his interview on the federal channel, I thought that the roof had moved off. Not everyone will give out such nonsense. An answer was given to his father's roar: before the interview, a sort of matrix “question - answer template (insert the missing words)” was unobtrusively but unequivocally indicated.

    I specifically looked at the ratings of the regions of Russia in order to understand the system for evaluating the performance of governors. The oldest governor of Russia is Evgeny Savchenko. He has been leading the Belgorod region since 1993. 27 years! At one time, the region achieved significant success in the development of industry, agriculture, and the mining industry. Even in social programs there were significant changes for the better. Today, others may be leaders, but still, Belgorod region is definitely not an outsider.
    Kaluga Governor Anatoly Artamonov with a rating at the beginning of the fourth ten, but in his twentieth year in service. Since 2007, the head of the Republic of Tuva, Sholban Karaool, has been unable to raise the republic above 84th place. There is still a relative centenarian in the regional government - Ramzan Kadyrov, but this is generally a separate topic for discussion.

    Interestingly, what conclusions would you have in the Chelyabinsk region?
    My personal - the era of Sumin (governor) and Tarasova (mayor) was still a very good era. Let’s say, they “provided” themselves and their retinue, so that even for ordinary people they began to do something useful more or less regularly. And then all sorts of Yurevichs and Dubrovskys went, and they went with enviable frequency, respectively. criminal cases flashed in the news (well, the guys were in a hurry, they needed to have time to provide for themselves in a rather short time, so they took it "not by rank" - although "Misha Baton" was generally a dead end initially - I, as a resident of Tankograd, have VERY much what to show him, starting with his election campaign). And all this parsley, I’m sure, will continue this way, no matter who will be standing there from the "shift workers". Because the problem is in the state system itselfwithoutcontrol officials, and in the upbringing, life values ​​of society. Why did the system of governor general and governorship in the Russian Empire work pretty well? There, people also sat practically for life, for dozens of years - but the trick was that they not only managed to get enough, but the quality of these people was still an order of magnitude higher than the current ones. There was tyranny, but there was no relation to the position exclusively as to a feeding trough - nevertheless, they understood that it was THEIR country, THEIR people, and that they were also part of it. And not the "citizens of the world" with the "homeland" somewhere closer to the offshore.

      The governor-generals in tsarist Russia did not deal with socio-economic issues, they were security officials who partially controlled the governors. They could not steal if they wanted to.

        Alas, the governor general was in the Russian Empire in the border regions, Moscow and St. Petersburg. These were almost always not provinces, but several provinces. This is you rather talking about the current representatives of the president in the districts. The provinces were governed by a civil governor
        For example, the Warsaw Governor General included as many as 10 provinces!

    It’s bad now. For some, it’s very bad.
    "On January 27, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that 18,5 million Russians are below the poverty line. Most of them are families with children."
    Further it will be even worse.

    To engage in state-building, we need an official ideology: what would we like to get in the end? Let it be unattainable, but of what we must strive for, what are our ideals. In the meantime, we have episodes torn over on the occasion of the expediency of the moment. With which they bound their hands and feet, and even blindfolded.
    Thus, the national-territorial division adopted by Lenin solved some tasks of attracting marginal nationalists against whites in the Civil War. It worked where how, where awry.
    The same Estonians well shamed Yudenich, but the Finns and Poles - to the Bolsheviks themselves. But then it exploded - and tore the Soviet Union, and even with territorial claims against Russia from the most zealous.
    In the 91st, the ideology of small farmers and guild guards, traders and Komsomol thieves won, which is not spelled out (or rather, why it is not spelled out in the Constitution - how do you spell it like that?), And still prevails over us ... Who bless you , who didn’t fit in - well, it happens (the episode from "Brother-2" reminded me - actually, my grandfather fought ... - It happens ...), everything that prevents getting rich - you don’t need at all how you can keep unprofitable doctors police officers or firefighters? For what? To be everywhere? So after all, it does not bring money, on the contrary, but because of that it is harmful!
    And now, having in fact this bizarre mix of feudal nationalism and undisguised thirst for profit, we want to build something solid and reliable? Strong and rich?
    Will not work!
    To begin with, these two factors must be cast down into the category of shameful and even forbidden. But what’s instead - it’s necessary to think, maybe the young ones will tell you ... They already have different priorities and views, and they are not worth the service-carpet-guns with silver, and even a car, and some even have an apartment! They are different, and have the right to want something of their own ....

      "Official ideology" exists (once the state exists). She is guided by "officials." They receive (in the end, for their labors). And we can want there to be calorific, gas, water, light, TV. And so that the streets are not openly robbed and killed.

    This is not an axiom, not at all.
    Or you do not understand what it is about.
    As Medvedev put it: "The work of governors should be assessed by the percentage of those who voted for United Russia !!!
    So this is a simulacrum, an extremely false and destructive criterion!
    The meaning of Russia in the rating of "United Russia" ???
    "Is the state me?"
