20 years at the helm: how they praised and scolded Vladimir Putin during this time

267

20 years as Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin rules the Russian state. This is already more than Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev led, but so far less than that of Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. I must say right away that during this period I also included four years from 2008 to 2012, when Dmitry Medvedev led the country de jure, and Putin served as prime minister. Indeed, during this period of time in Russia, the influence of the head of government was no less.


During his time at the helm of Putin, one could hear a lot of good and a lot of bad. This is clear...

It even happened that the same results were considered by some as victories and others as failures. But most of Putin’s opponents, not to mention supporters, believe that Russia has changed a lot during his reign.

Let's remember what we praised and scolded Putin for the past twenty years. It is clear why - for his actions and decisions.

Chechen Knot


In August 1999, Russian President Boris Yeltsin appointed the young and little-known FSB director Vladimir Putin as prime minister. And just two days after his appointment from Chechnya, which almost got out of the control of the Russian authorities, XNUMX militants invaded the territory of Dagestan. Thus began the Second Chechen War, which continued when Putin became president.

It was not under Putin that this conflict began, but he had to end it, and he did it competently. And although the fighting was bloody, and the losses were large, the security forces acted more thoughtfully and effectively than in the first Chechen one. Of course, this added authority to Putin not only among the military, but also among the entire population of Russia.

The president managed not only to defeat Chechen fighters and foreign mercenaries helping bandits, but also to make this region loyal to the central government. To do this, he drew local influential people to the side of the federal forces, including from among former opponents. An example is the field commander Akhmat Kadyrov, who was subsequently replaced as head of the Chechen Republic by his son Ramzan.

Of course, the establishment of a reliable and strong peace in the region, in which the former federal authorities were already desperate to change something, contributed to a significant increase in Putin's authority in the country.

But at the same time, in the course of the fight against the Chechen separatists, significant mistakes were also made, leading to a significant number of civilian casualties who died as a result of terrorist attacks or during the liquidation of militants. Here you can recall the “Nord-Ost”, Beslan and other tragic moments. The blame for them is often blamed not only on the security forces, but also on Putin personally.

However, one should not forget about the significant number of prevented terrorist attacks.


It is hard not to notice that during the reign of Putin, it was possible to reduce the manifestations of terrorism in Russia, if not to zero, then to a minimum over the past three decades. This is hardly a coincidence that has nothing to do with the activities of the president.

Transformation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation


It is unlikely that even the most staunch opponents of the incumbent president will argue with the fact that the effectiveness and credibility of the Russian army during Putin's presidency has grown significantly. Our army today has become much stronger, more organized. She got the most modern and highly efficient weaponnot inferior, and often superior, to foreign analogues.

Significantly improved the training of personnel, its material support, has become more order compared with the 90s. Today, being a military has become prestigious, unlike that time.

Of course, such a transformation of the army is a great achievement, which many consider to a large extent Putin's personal merit. But there is an opinion that the defense spending in our country is excessive. The latest weapons systems are being created in Russia, as these people believe, to the detriment of the national economy. Perhaps partly they are right. Otherwise, such a word as “import substitution” would not have appeared in our country.

But the world is far from perfect, and the best guarantee of security in it is the presence of a strong army that can protect the population, resources and interests of the country. Therefore, defense costs cannot be dispensed with, although they have to spend a significant part of the budget on them. Although we must not forget that even a strong army is not a panacea. This is clear from the example of the Soviet Union.

It is worth noting that, unfortunately, not all funds allocated for defense are used for their intended purpose. An example of this is the corruption scandal that occurred in 2008 (and it is far from the only one) with the Oboronservis company, which had property relations with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

Corruption is bad, especially in the defense industry. But crimes seem to be solved, and that’s good. Therefore, information about the identification of misuse of the finances allocated for defense, for some serves as an occasion to criticize Putin, and for others to praise.

In addition, people are discussing arms sales abroad. Some people think that this is an excellent budget revenue item. And others say that Russia supplies weapons to countries that will not always be used for good. And it may even be used against Russia itself.

Fight against corruption


Of course, Russia cannot be called the most corrupt country in the world, but it is among the 50 leading corruption states.
True, there are social activists who have devoted themselves to the fight against this phenomenon. In particular, there is the Anti-Corruption Fund by Alexey Navalny. He regularly publishes sensational revelations of the myriad wealth of high-ranking officials, most of whom are close to the president.

Of course, you can see with an unaided glance that Navalny’s ambitions are hardly limited to the fight against corruption. This politician, who continues to be called almost the leader of the Russian opposition, is clearly trying to get into power in the wake of the “hype”. And for some reason, law enforcement agencies actively play along with him. For some reason, his materials are not trying to refute, but simply ignored. And when he goes on provocations, they help him to form the image of a "martyr" and a "fighter for truth."

In general, it is strange ... If we have a totalitarian state and a "Mordor", then why does Navalny feel quite comfortable? The maximum that he usually faces is short-term prison sentences for disorderly conduct. And since we have democracy, freedom and the rule of law, then why aren’t their investigations checked? If he is right, then they will punish corrupt officials, and if not, then let him sit behind slander.

This is generally a difficult question. On the one hand, governors and other high-ranking officials are being jailed for corruption, they are exposing colonels with apartments full of money. And on the other - they didn’t put everyone in prison! So, the rest ... either they can not, or they do not want ...

It turns out that under Putin they began to catch and plant more bribe takers more, but at the same time the volumes of abuse reached impressive proportions. Thus, some credit Putin with identifying these very abuses, while others criticize him for the growing scale of corruption.

Economics and social sphere


It is sometimes difficult to say what causes economic success and failure: someone’s right or wrong steps, or just because external conditions have developed. Do not forget that our country has huge hydrocarbon resources and their export is a significant source of replenishment of the budget.

When Putin first came to power, oil prices were high. From 1999 to 2001, they nearly doubled. It was during the period of high prices for "black gold", which lasted until 2008, that Russia managed to make a significant breakthrough. GDP growth of 7 percent per year (in the United States at that time it was at around 2,4 percent) made it possible for Russia to grow and grow rich.


People reasoned like this: Putin came, and life began to improve. To a large extent, his decisions, indeed, improved the situation. Of course, oil revenues played a significant role in this. But you need to understand that it is not enough to find yourself in a favorable environment, you still need to use the situation wisely. And Putin’s team did it originally.

Money was invested in production, education, and healthcare. In 2007, families began to receive Maternity Capital, but today it seems that it has always existed in Russia, because good things are quickly forgotten. By the way, this year the country had a high birth rate.

And although the money went to production, they were allocated not to all sectors. Some of them did not develop, because you could just sell oil and buy imported goods and components with these funds. And when Russia came under sanctions, it had to deal with import substitution. If not for pressure from outside, Russia might have become even more dependent on hydrocarbon exports. And the unfavorable situation forced the country to develop high-tech production, agriculture, and other industries.

By the way, at this time the opportunity arose to create a Stabilization Fund, which is now called the National Welfare Fund. It is his funds that the government uses today during the epidemic. True, today Putin is criticized for insufficient assistance to the victims of the pandemic crisis, comparing Putin’s steps with measures of support for business and the population approved by Trump. But no one knows how events will develop, and whether we can now afford to spend our savings. After all, then there will probably be no place to take funds from.

So whether the authorities are doing the right thing or not, we will probably find out only at the moment when it is all over. And then we’ll praise or criticize the guarantor president.

A big blow for the Russians, and therefore for the rating of the Russian president, was the decision to extend the retirement age. After this decision, support for the population of Putin’s country decreased significantly. Nobody will be able to forget the pension reform, and this is understandable even from a household point of view, because it concerns every citizen (money bags can be put in brackets).

Foreign policy situation


Already few remember, but the first years after Putin took office as president were marked by the rapprochement between Russia and the West.

Russia fought against international terrorism in Chechnya and other regions of the country, and America survived the tragedy of September 11th.

The fight against extremism has become the common goal of Russia and the United States, making the two countries for a short time actual allies. Russia not only approved the entry of American troops into Afghanistan, but also provided the United States with its military bases for the delivery of goods to this country. Here we must pay tribute to Putin, since he did not begin to send his contingent to Afghanistan. Our soldiers were already there, enough.

True, Russia condemned the American military operation against Iraq in 2003.

The cooling in relations between the Russian Federation and the United States and the Western world took place from about 2007-2008. It all started with Putin's speech at the Munich Security Conference, where Putin called on other countries to abandon the unipolar world order. Further policy of Russia showed that these were not just words.

Then, in 2008, Georgian aggression against South Ossetia and Abkhazia was rebuffed. Russia recognized these republics as independent states. The NATO bloc did not stand up for its ally, but the West criticized Russia and Putin.

Another achievement of Putin’s foreign policy is the rapprochement with China, which has become a strategic partner for us. Someone considers this the right policy, others criticize Putin, they say that in vain he trusts the Chinese so much, from whom one can and should wait for a dirty trick.

In 2014, after an armed coup in Kiev, Crimea reunited with Russia after a referendum. Crimeans unequivocally expressed their position.

And although Putin’s criticism for this decision was heard both in Russia and abroad, such a step caused the maximum growth of the current president’s rating for the entire time he was in power in Russia.

As for the Donbass, whose inhabitants also sharply opposed the coup d'etat in Ukraine, Putin’s policy towards this region has been the last six years in the economic, humanitarian and moral support of the people's republics created there. At the same time, official recognition from Russia in the Donbass did not wait. When discussing Putin’s policies towards the Donbass, the opinions of Russians were divided. Some say that you need to leave LDNR to deal with their problems on their own. Others believe that it was necessary to at least officially recognize the republics of Donbass for a long time, or even include them in the Russian Federation. And others believe that Putin knows what he’s doing, because he always has some clever plan (the notorious “KhPP”).

And finally, Syria. The actions of the US-led coalition against the Islamic State banned in Russia were of little effect. Much has changed after entering the Middle Eastern country at the request of President Bashar Assad of the Russian military contingent. True, there is a version that the late Iranian General of the IRGC, Kassem Suleimani, suggested this idea to Putin.

As a result, Russia was able to deploy military bases in the Mediterranean and eliminate the threat of the spread of terrorism from the Middle East to the Caucasus and Central Asia. By the way, the Syrian government forces, with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, managed to take control of a significant part of the country and practically clear it of IS fighters. True, to the end of the conflict and the establishment of peace is still too far away.

And here there is no consensus among the Russians whether Putin is right or not. Some consider his actions expedient, others believe that he was in vain involved in this conflict.

What to expect from Putin


Although Putin’s steps were rarely predictable before, this year he never ceases to amaze.

With the oil crisis, "everything is not so clear." Experts are wondering whether it was Putin’s next multi-march against the US oil industry, or ours somehow didn’t think what they were doing, or Russia had nothing to do with it, and the Saudis initiated the breakdown of OPEC + negotiations. So here, some admire the insight or analytical abilities of the president, others criticize him for ill-conceived and erroneous actions, and still others are simply in a state of shock from the state of affairs in world markets.

In fact, the year began with the resignation of the government along with its head, Dmitry Medvedev. At the same time, it was decided to make many amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation. Subsequently, it turned out that the Russians would vote for them “in bulk”, that is, for all at the same time.

The events were so unexpected that the Russians were simply at a loss, not realizing whether this was good or bad, and what it threatened them with. Some are trying to decipher what Putin’s “trick” is, putting forward different versions, one more bizarre than the other. Most agreed that this was due to the possible extension of his presidential term so that he could run the state after 2024. The proposal of Valentina Tereshkova did not add popularity to either her or the current president, but full-time specialists in sociology have not yet said their word ...

Apparently, all these shocks were not enough, so a pandemic fell on our head. Worst of all, the world has not yet faced a similar problem. Therefore, no one really knows how to do the right thing, but everyone has an opinion on this issue. From here inevitably appear dissatisfied.

In this situation, it is very difficult to find a middle ground in order to take care of the health of the population and not to ruin the economy. Moreover, the first task contradicts the second. Here, no matter how you act, there will be many dissatisfied. Moreover, discontent is justified. Some lost their jobs, others are struggling for life, still others are in financial difficulties, and others are in an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. Moreover, no one really knows what will happen next.

And with any development of the situation, someone will be extreme. And I even guess who ...


The attitude of Russians towards Putin is often diametrically opposite. Some believe that all the troubles in the country are due to the fact that Putin is president. Others believe that Russia only holds on to Putin. Like, Putin will leave, and the country will collapse.

I do not agree with any point of view, nor with the other. I believe that in the twenty years of his reign, Putin has made the country stronger. Of course, he had mistakes, including big ones. But only those who do nothing do not make mistakes.

This man ruled our vast country for twenty years, and in general, he did it with dignity. But the time is already coming when it is worth thinking about a worthy replacement for the current president. We must understand that sooner or later Putin will be replaced by a new leader, whom the current president is probably already preparing.

An ideal system for the country would be when the state machine works clearly and smoothly - regardless of who is currently at the helm. I would like to believe that such a model can still be implemented in Russia.

    Looking at these 20 years, it remains for the GDP to understand that we must learn to leave on time. All ratings of large percentages were crossed out by one idiocy-pension reform. After which, as soon as the helmsman was not bowed over the cases, regardless of past merits.

        Very capacious pun you got)

        In this fuss, it is sad that the decision, as I understand it, has already been made (Pamfilova, or something, already explained). But they still want to arrange a popular vote: type, ask the opinion of the people (which no longer affects anything).

        It is clear that this opinion is not interesting to anyone, you just need to arrange a beautiful show in Tereshkovsky style: the population of Russia in a single impulse begs the GDP not to leave their post. Why not spend the planned 14 billion in the midst of another crisis?

          "Pension reform" and "zeroing" are literally two sides of the same coin, which show how Putin treats what 1) belongs to other people by right 2) is impossible for him by right. It turns out that, if desired, what belongs by right to others may no longer belong to them, and the impossible by right may become possible for him.

          I am interested in: will there be a clause on the prohibition of deputies and officials from the government to have real estate and capital abroad? As far as I know, in the State Duma this item was removed from the amendments. But why then it is so intensely advertised on television, as if this amendment was included in the package. In this way, they lure the electorate to vote for the entire package of amendments, and with it the main one - zeroing out Putin’s terms? If so, it smacks of something bad.

            Even if this item had not been removed, the understandable obvious main task of the amendments would not have disappeared and had not changed.

            The substantive content of the amendments does not play any role at all, they are rotated as required. Did the Constitution clause on the social character of the state hinder the raising of retirement age? That point on real estate will be easily bypassed through the laying company. The constitution is not violated, everything is according to the law.

        As they say, all the secret sooner or later becomes apparent: pension robbery, zeroing, financial support for the oligarchs, increasing the tax burden of the population, etc. All Putin’s actions in recent years are aimed at robbing the population. Population incomes fall for the 7th consecutive year. This is the main indicator of his work. In fact, Putin has long been the main factor in the impoverishment of the people. I'm not talking about demography. The Russians are simply dying out. Poverty and extinction-this is Putin's stability.

          In general, the feeling that the author, although not explicitly, drowns for irremovable. This can be judged by his phrase that
          Putin defeated Chechen fighters
          Even the notorious Stalinists will not say that Stalin defeated Hitler's Germany. Under the guidance, yes. But not personally. And on other points, many questions arise. In short, the article, in my opinion, is a slightly disguised attempt to wash the black dog white white. IMHO.

          And an even greater factor in the impoverishment of the people, more than a trillion from the accounts of the past two months, the poor people withdrew from us, was 2014 when oil prices fell and sanctions were imposed on both investment and trade, this continues for the sixth year in a row. After the current pandemic in 2021, the government will again have to intensively fill the NWF and the crisis fund, as the current situation has shown that even 12 trillion is quite small, which, under similar circumstances, will end within two three months when the state of emergency is introduced, this will revise the budget for the next years aside reduction of oil cost to $ 15, and all that will be earned on the sale of hydrocarbons will be sent to the funds described above, bringing the savings to 60-70 trillion rubles, taking into account the fact that even with the lowest public debt of $ 40 billion, no one borrow anything from Western banks will not allow it.

                Not this way. Spelling and grammatical errors are not indicative of mental strength or dementia. Socrates did not write anything in principle; and if he wrote something, the Greeks could ridicule him for the illiteracy of the letter. But the Delphic Oracle recognized him as the smartest of the Greeks, and later he was among the great thinkers of the past. Even logical and factual errors do not indicate dementia or schizophrenia here: in this format of communication, they may well be tricks for the general reader, a deliberate lie. Yes, and you have a mistake in the word "write". hi

      Yes exactly. Everything for which it was possible to praise is crossed out by that for which it is impossible to praise. And the fact that good is done is halfway in the middle. Putin shared the law on production sharing in 2004, but only to the extent that it allowed a sharp increase in the number of oligarchs, and half of each object of serious industry fell under foreign non-localized capital. Or take the Crimea. That's when Sberbank enters there, I’ll put a plus. But will it come in? And who will answer me, for what kind of money the Central Bank is a regulator independent of the Government of Russia?

        Our Central Bank is only very conditionally independent (much more dependent than for example in the EU or the USA). They try to make it independent, because the government must implement the budget. When the government also steers the central bank, it has a great opportunity and temptation to turn up a bunch of mega-projects and print a lot of money for it, causing inflation and undermining the financial system. What can be obtained from this can be seen, for example, in Venezuela. Which is already forced to import everything. They even print money Goznak of the Russian Federation. And oil is being taken from Iran instead of its own.

        How can I not think about my miserable pension if this is the only source of income in old age? Not only have the funded part been frozen, the state has actually withdrawn my money.

        Glavpatriot, I understand where you are driving, namely: Putin does not have a sufficient number of powers. Two previous days in a row here, at VO, I talked about this. But if Putin had just asked the people for these powers, perhaps I would have voted in favor. And then what happens? Previously, he pushed for decisions that were positive for the country (if any), when he still had fresh dirt on those who could slow down these decisions. Is this, excuse me, a way to govern the country? Yes, this is the way to run the country - the way to name Putin. Which led the country into a swamp of general corruption and, as a result, "negative economic growth." And now, in the era of the coronavirus, much cooler than Putin, impudent bulldogs like Sobyanin and the pouting Vorobyov have come out - Putin with his dull undercover agreements that often do not burn out, like, for example, the pension reform, looks like a puppy against them, weaving after with the tail between its legs. People should see that the president is a powerful power that stands behind them like a mountain. Only in this case, they will not only be for him, but, if necessary, will support everyone by taking to the streets. In the meantime, in domestic politics, he gives up positions wherever possible. Agreement between the puppy and the bulldogs cannot take place.

            Stoporez, my respect! hi love
            You know, it is very difficult to live when the president of my country is a person I disrespect. I need to respect the president, but I'm not a child. I understand perfectly well that he should be sneezing at my respect with a coronavirus sneeze, that his address to the people "my relatives" is just another PR deception, that he is the president of the rich, arrogant and vile oligarchic beast. He doesn't need my respect. But I need it. I need such a president. And when I said that if Putin had asked for additional powers, I would have voted for, I meant that someone, let alone Putin, would never ask for such powers — never! But the new powers, such as Stalin and even Brezhnev had, would have allowed - no, not Putin! - To the President to make decisions necessary for the country. Without concessions to the US Federal Reserve, the IMF, Nabiullina as the head of the Central Bank-regulator, without Siluanov ...
            Do you know who Siluanov is?
            Do you think that Siluanov is the head of the RF Ministry of Finance? Only part-time. His main place of work is the International Monetary Fund. His position is called "Governor of the IMF for the Russian Federation". Taking into account the status of our Central Bank, we are a US colony, Stoporez. The IMF gave the go-ahead for pension reform, and Putin said "Yes!" Because he is not the president, he is the colonial administrator. This is on one side of the narrow corridor in which Putin lives. And the other side of the corridor is the greedy billionaires who breed - no, not by dividing an egg! - cutting the budget. Putin is trapped in this corridor of opportunities, he was pushed there, he is used to living in it and cannot do otherwise. Obviously, sincerely believing that it is impossible for a person holding the post of President of Russia to live in the wrong narrow corridor ...
            So he pretends that he asks me, like everyone else, with the help of amendments to extend his stay in the corridor of opportunity until the end of his life. Yes, it pretends. After all, it is clear that as an inhabitant of the space between narrow walls, he arranges these walls, everything has been decided for a long time, and the solution rests in a safe.
            Arranges the walls, but not me.

To do this, he drew local influential people to the side of the federal forces, including from among former opponents. An example is the field commander Akhmat Kadyrov, who was subsequently replaced as head of the Chechen Republic by his son Ramzan.

    The economy and demography of Putin's Russia is a graph of the rise and fall of world oil and gas prices. When prices rose, the economy also grew, demographics improved in comparison with the 90s, and Putin's propagandists put this in Putin's great achievement. When prices began to fall, the economy began to fall, demographics worsened, and Putin and his propagandists began to cowardly blame Soviet communists, including Putin's "galoshes", Yeltsin, and the West.

    An ideal system for the country would be when the state machine works clearly and smoothly - regardless of who is currently at the helm.

      I also agree, out in the USA, even black couldn’t cause damage to the country, two Bush brothers, flutist Clinton, actor Reagan, who just did not lead the country, and the states still stand like a rock. Why were they able to create such a system and ours cannot? It seems to me that the goals of our leaders are different - selfish, small and mercantile, although you can’t say the same about Stalin. It is a pity that Stalin did not transfer power to the chosen successor during his lifetime.

      He had to leave immediately after the Crimea, as this was his last notable work. Although if he had left even earlier, as you say by 10 years, then maybe not only Crimea would have been ours, but all of southern and left-bank Ukraine, because he completely failed the policy towards Ukraine and did not react to those who raised their heads there Bandera, did not react at all to the anti-Russian sentiments that were planted there more and more, and that’s the result - Ukraine is the enemy.

        And about the policy towards Ukraine you are wrong. This issue failed the predecessors of GDP, because the hatred of Ukrainians towards Russia and the pro-Western view of the latter began to escalate much earlier.

    the result is multidirectional. The annexation of Crimea took place against the backdrop of a strategic miscalculation with Ukraine.

        maybe you are right! Some reasoning.
        1. realizing that Ukraine was leaving, Putin jumped into the last car of the outgoing train - Crimea, taking into account all the consequences of his continued presence in Ukraine. And the human factor in this was not the main
        2. Putin and his advisers did not predict the further course of events and "went with the flow." Hence the vague position on the LPR at the early stage.
        3. In the future, while supporting the LPNR, Putin wanted to keep them in the structure of Ukraine through "Minsk" as an anchor, allegedly hindering Ukraine's drift to the West. In this vein and recognition of the coup by legalizing Poroshenko.
        BUT! Fierce fighting and casualties from both sorons made the preservation of LDNR within Ukraine a utopia. And the partners of Ukraine did not want this.
        4. To some extent, the situation in the Donbass, according to Putin’s plan, was supposed to reduce the passions in the Crimea, however, the Donbass became a more important problem for everyone.
        5. Strange as it may seem, Crimea and LDNR caused the consolidation of the Ukrainian society against Russia, Ukrainians not only did not understand the annexation of Crimea, but also reacted extremely negatively. This puts the prospect of almost any party in favor of restoring relations with Russia. In fact, gaining the Crimea, Putin lost Ukraine.
        6. From the point of view of counteracting the emergence of the US base in Sevastopol, then, unfortunately, the appearance of such bases is possible in Odessa, Nikolaev, Sumy, Kharkov.
        Somehow it turns out.

          And it seems to me that at that time the plan was to provoke the collapse of Ukraine (which, according to the plan of the strategists from the administration, was about to happen) and take Ukraine into pieces in pieces (except for the Lviv region). When the collapse did not happen, it made all the actions taken at that time in the framework of this plan meaningless. The expected benefits for the most part remained on paper, the losses incurred were much higher than expected because Ukraine did not disappear as a subject of international law. But it was already impossible to retreat, no one in Russia would understand this

            Maybe there was such a plan, but Putin clearly did not begin to implement it, it is a pity that his actions show through some kind of half-heartedness, incompleteness.
            And I agree with you that then it would have been possible to take away not only Crimea, but also most of Ukraine - it was necessary to press hard on Yanukovych, force him to give an order to the security forces. After all, only Russia could save Yanukovych at that time, so the condition had to be set: "We will save you, but you fight," and Putin just saved him.

            You are not a realist; you have a phobia. Here's what they write about it:
            The fear of change has its own scientific definition - neophobia. This phobia is a way to protect the body from any negative environmental influences. This is a kind of manifestation of the instinct of self-preservation. A person, as it were, insures himself against possible unpleasant situations and the negative feelings associated with them. Fear of change affects people who are overly suspicious, emotionally unstable, with low self-esteem.

            In some cases, the fear of the new is constructive: it prevents rash actions that can lead to bad consequences. Neophobia adds a little common sense to everyday life. People suffering from this phobia critically assess their capabilities, take vital decisions in a balanced manner. However, a person who is afraid of all kinds of changes cannot succeed in life. For a long time, he can vainly expect active actions on the part of other people or some kind of turn in fate. However, life will not change if nothing is done.

            Fear of changes in life fetters the will of a person, puts all kinds of barriers to the development of personality. Suspicion and excessive suspicion can interfere with friendships, love relationships, interfere with a career, get married.

            Neophobia becomes the cause of various physiological disorders (increased heart rate, increased pressure, dizziness, increased sweating) and destructively affects the social activity of a person. People suffering from this phobia are wary of anything new in various fields of social activity. Fear of change prevents the individual from developing as an individual, living a full life. This phobia has several manifestations.

            Hold on, you still have to live with it somehow.

He could have made it even stronger if he had made a bet on million Russian citizens, instead of hundreds of citizens with an undetermined place of residence who are enriched here but live there. Well, for a major pension robbery showed his attitude towards the people.

        Stalin created the USSR in conditions of an entirely new ideology, active resistance to it, undisguised wrecking and managed to save the country in the most terrible war by historical standards. Brezhnev came to the ready. His seemingly prosperous rule was the era of the flourishing of corruption, the expansion of the party ranks up to merging with the underground criminal business. And so - yes, we lived well. There were hopes. But did anyone know that they are built on quicksand. All subsequent negativity is attributed to the time in which Brezhnev was gone.

    Dialectics, .... It was good, it was bad.
    But lately, politics, people, etc. does not change.
    So you can safely predict the future: the people’s appeals to the trenches, the rich live internationally, the Forbes list is growing, prices are rising, production is growing at a statistical level, everyone is the same on TV, sometimes someone is planted if too many millions were stolen for no reason, development deadlines prolonged. breakthroughs in the media weekly, but somewhere far away ...

    Oh yes, according to the constitution, power and property beyond a hillock is eternal and inviolable.

    There is a saying: "If you look into the abyss for a long time, the abyss will look into you."
    GDP has been in power for a very long time, longer than a person can stay in shape and desire to wage a real fight. The system is already built in such a way that many of the problems of today are the problems of decisions of his government and the course of twenty or ten years ago. Of course, not everything and the country he got is not in the best shape. But the longer, the more in the "struggle" - the struggle with oneself and one's own decisions.
    The way we desire within this process over time leads us to work "after the fact", and our desires change under the influence of this. What we are witnessing is this endless fight against corruption, this endless race for living standards, these endless conflicting promises ..

        In my opinion, it started tentatively after 2006. Already there were good oil prices, there was already a certain level of security within the country, there were already good indicators for the growth of wealth and the economy. Ukraine has not yet been a problem for us - despite the Orange Revolution, there have not been Western sanctions yet - and the West itself has sunk deep in Iraq-Afghanistan.
        The GDP had a huge credit of confidence - and it didn't take an industrial brainwashing yet to "rule" it.
        In general, then we came to the moment - when we achieved positive stability and quiet borders (regarding what we see today) - we HAD a choice how to do things further.
        Whether to act with targeted permanent measures within the framework of a big plan for realistically restructuring the country - and spending super-revenues (and they were then) in targeted directions.
        Either fill in problems with money and measure in the second round with the West (Munich speech, etc.), and inside the country it’s stupid to sit down and expect that the positive dynamics will take everything out by itself, the problems will be solved by themselves, and the sun will shine as bright as it shone in 2006 .

        That choice was the usual choice of a leader "at the peak" of popularity - when you think yourself and the right people buzz in your ears about being chosen and the beginning of glorious deeds under the signs of good luck. Then there was 2008 - the crisis, August, it was necessary to twist the screws and be sophisticated with the "receiver", then there was Serdyukov, Bolotnaya, Libya, worsening with the West, 100500 fiery speeches in anticipation of the wind blowing by itself again ..
        Well, in 2006 all this was not. 8 years separated us from a really serious moment - 8 years full of bobs, the absence of sanctions, looking into the mouth of the CIS and Putin, a dozen years younger.
        If you think about it - these are 2 presidential terms for which you can turn mountains. But we have what we have. Then there was a turning point in my opinion ..

      You tell Old Man this - this one is in power more than Putin sits. And Putin will leave in 2024 — he will be over 70 and it’s clear from him that he’s tired of putting Mishustin in his place as a colonel or general from the GRU for about 50 years and will quietly retire.

        Yes, this is the problem of any person who has been sitting "on top" for a couple of decades. It’s not even a matter of a person’s abilities and aging, and it’s not that “tired” and didn’t fulfill much that was promised — it’s just that at some point the struggle is already going on with oneself. So every year it is necessary to lie more and more and to dodge - or to admit that there "did not think it through", which automatically says that it is time to retire. Well, or to observe a certain picture "in motion", some kind of success, dynamics, at least a skeleton of future victories -> but no, it is not observed. We take 6 years ago and see everything the same as now. We take 10 years ago - we see everything too, but without sanctions. Even then, they talked about some kind of plan, a framework - but in fact we saw from something relatively material - only military developments and some success of our agro-industrial complex in the field of import substitution.
        I also don't understand Lukashenka's games well, especially this old-fashioned, grumpy pettiness, but success, it seems to me, is an unambiguous movement from “good” to “better”, but not marking time or even keeping the system in one state. Life is motion .

          Colleague, do you think that Putin does not need anything new. Putin thinks differently. I remember how he humiliated himself before the State Duma after Tereshkova’s speech on zeroing. He said how he likes to work as president. How shyly (and maybe in alarm for the result?) Worried at the same time, almost breaking off his voice.
          And by the way, here.
          A few days ago, a video with this speech by Putin was posted on Yandex. But not in Zen, but just like that, before a brief description of some news that has nothing to do with Putin. What for? And what was found by me there? The humiliating moment disappeared, as if it were not there at all! In the master gluing scraps and editing the image!
          Evil tongues claim that Putin has long been gone, that he is Photoshop. Yes, I somehow do not care what he is. I judge by the result.

            What Putin needs is understandable and noticeable for a long time. He just thinks that the interest from coming to power is to steal into the bushes. Well, or a small bipod level Volodin.
            Any authoritarian leader is aiming for a Place in History. So that later there would be non-acidic kitchen battles on the topic of "good / bad", so that there would be followers who did not even live under your rule, for whom you are a kind of iconographic character with the wisdom of Yoda, the charisma of Che Guevara, depth, foresight, etc. A similar approach, in our country, as practice shows, erases all your jambs and kosyachischi, from any rubbish and nonsense makes a harmonious and cunning plan, and of course, any epic theft can also be easily hidden - if you manage to build this image.
            The emperor needs Triumph - a certain point where success (albeit not total) will be so visualized - that it would be possible to arrange a parade with bonnets, push a couple of beautiful speeches and go into the sunset (and portraits in museums). I think our president sees the Triumph in removing European sanctions with some fanfare - then (judging by the looming desires behind a myriad of actions) there is a calculation to stir up some kind of beautiful 69 with the EU authorities - that it’s possible to engage them with a quiet glanders, but it’s important it’s epic to fix something else, pose with European leaders, shake the crab with smiles, sign gas contracts for 10 years ahead - then there are ministers, various Rogozins, who, on behalf of each department, also shake the crab and agree, etc. Everything - a picture from the exhibition, stability and global respect. You can take power. A curtain.
            I think that something like that we really want now. Previously, of course, there were probably more phased plans. But at least this plan makes it possible to say "we fought and overcame!" ...
            And, as I understand it, the banquet will continue until something like this happens.
            I think in the west they don’t sit there either, and they understand that they will have MORE concessions, the LONGER they will delay this moment. Otherwise, all that they want will be if this moment does not happen.

            We are inside this scheme, no matter how funny it is, passive observers. A kind of triumphant crowd scene, which is waiting for "events" to rejoice and wave flags.
            At least I have such a picture.

    The real Putin is an ordinary person. EBN did not choose him wisely, but exclusively to save his own skin. It was just a pearl at first - oil prices were rising by leaps and bounds. But then they fell and we see that for all these fat years nothing really has been done, wherever you spit - failure and rush. And with what he answered - cannibalistic reform of pensions?
    For me, he has already lost the coast for a long time, he imagines himself a great politician, although he is an occasional little man as president. And of course the frenzied corruption in his environment, multiplied by complete incompetence - this is his objective characteristic.

    At the same time, as a result, over the past 40 years he was the first long-term ruler, in which the situation in the country and its position in the world as a whole did not deteriorate, but nevertheless improved.

      For Putin’s rule, only officials at the feeding trough, hucksters, speculators, effective managers and socially responsible businessmen sitting at the Kremlin’s trough cutting the state budget drown. The rest of the people do not have such a leader for nothing ... I don’t understand one thing - every time he prays to God for Orthodox holidays, there is a confessor. When did he believe in God like that, when did he throw a party card into a bucket? Earlier, princes went to the monastery in old age - they thought about their life, but sins were atone for. Eltsin a couple of days in the church funeral, thought - it will help. His devils are fried in hell for the ruined souls of the common people. And this one there ...

    But nothing that we don’t water each other with automatic machines, as was the case in the Caucasus and what is happening in banderlog now? And that Russia did not fall apart and is still whole from Vladik to Kaliningrad? And that striped with their lackeys teeth click and bark, but they can’t do anything? You can list for a long time. And such a country is the only one in the world, it is Russia. It is worth a lot, you have to be proud of it, and you guys are simply snickering. And again you begin to whine - what are cool jeans in the West and how good it is to live there. So forward to the west, there is no Putin and never will be. hi

      Russia has not collapsed and is still whole from Vladik to Kaliningrad?

      Who cares?
      Norway is small, proud of its standard of living .. and some are still proud of its size ..

      And that striped with their lackeys teeth click and bark, but they can’t do anything? You can list for a long time.

      This is a super achievement at all ..))

    And two days after his appointment from Chechnya, ..., fifteen hundred militants invaded the territory of Dagestan.


    That's it!
    Prior to that, he led the FSB, for a whole year! Many credit it to him. He led! And How?
    Explain how the FSB, under the leadership of a wise leader, allowed the supply of weapons and food, redeployment to the concentration area, the very concentration and advancement, deployment and movement of a sickly grouping of XNUMX people plus a certain amount of transport / wagon train. And for this his "promotion"?
    On our side, the loss of about 1000 dead and wounded, on the other hand, is 2-3 times greater. Is this an achievement?

    The 1999 terrorist attacks of September 14-16: Volgodonsk-19 killed 89 wounded, Buinaks-64 of the corpse 146 wounded, Moscow - two terrorist attacks — Kashirka and Guryanova — more than two hundred dead, a thousand were wounded.

    And they appointed the GDP as prime minister on August 9 from the post of head of the FSB. How did this department work under his leadership if the subordinates overslept such large-scale attacks, the invasion of Dagestan? Is this all that was planned and implemented in a couple of days?
    Yes, okay.

    The president managed not only to defeat the Chechen fighters ...


    What, he personally ran with a gun? I have not seen this.
    If the guns spoke, then the politician lost. LOSED! All this victory was bought by the blood of the Russian Army and Navy, washed by the tears of mothers.

    Significantly improved the training of personnel, its material support


    Material support has grown, yes. And the police were raised. When there is nothing left before the elections. Yes, only military pensions for some reason did not grow on the same scale. He promised to "catch up". And what? I didn't catch up.
    Why didn't you start with doctors and teachers? Some doctors generally "optimized" the bed capacity. We all see the result. Thunder burst out, take it out.

      10000 optimized beds in the fight against the Russian virus didn’t help, as 8 to 10 thousand people get sick a day.

    Otherwise, such a word as “import substitution” would not have appeared in our country.


    Import substitution? Come on! Is your eyesight bad? Well, you have to go to the nearest store. Our pens, taps, erasers, chandeliers, TVs, stoves, photos, phones, briefcases, pipes, kettles, mixers, drills, punchers, drills, screws (SCREWS !!!) and damn what else is ours? -NO! We even stopped making pencils. Everywhere "china".
    Someone from the "entourage", a badminton lover, said that we produce cars in Vsevolozhsk. We! We produce! Yourself! And here once, the Ford company waved its tail, and "we" no longer produce. And we also make BMWs in Kaliningrad. Themselves. Everything.

      If you search, you will find both pencils and punchers drills for clothes made in Russia - the problem here is that you don’t see it in our store just because it’s not profitable for the store owners to sell it - it’ll not be profitable for our manufacturers to trade all this inside the country it is profitable to export there because of the weak ruble they will receive two to three times more. Here is such a thing.

        it is not profitable to trade all of this domestically


        Well, where do this legs grow from? That's right: tax policy, fiscal policy, social, and a bunch of different ones. What is it all called? Right again. Domestic policy of the state. And who defines her last twenty years? Guessed again. Putin Vladimir Vladimirovich. What is the result? You yourself note:
        it is not profitable to trade all of this domestically

        We have a lot of smart and enterprising people. It is necessary to create normal conditions for them and not to interfere. They will turn mountains. It is only necessary to indicate the direction.

        The war ended in the 45th. After 16 years, Gagarin flew into space. The country was in ruins. And we are still flying on that rocket into space. Still! And where is our success over the past 20 years? What is the difference between the salaries of Medvedev and a nurse at a local clinic?

        it’s just that it’s not profitable for the store owners themselves to sell

        Well, yes .. it's all the store owners who are to blame for the fact that import substitution exists only in sick minds ..))

    expose colonels with flats full of money


    Well, of course, an ordinary colonel found somewhere a couple of tons of money. And all by myself. I personally drove. But men don’t know! (with). And the FSB, which Putin competently directed and trained personnel for a whole year, did not know?
    I’ll go for a walk, I can find a draw bag.

    And Putin’s team did it initially.


    Yes, I did. Can not argue.
    Take gasoline for example. 92nd. On January 01, 2000, a liter of it cost around 6 r 50 kopecks. And now? We look out the window, take a calculator, divide / multiply. We get an average price increase of at least 25%. All twenty years. Every year. Minimum 25%.
    For farmers achievement? But what about. What more!

        Well, I don’t remember her. He was already retired. One thing I can say: I do not know a single person in my environment whose salary / pension would grow at the same rate as the price of gas, that is, at least 25% every year for the past twenty years.

        Do you know such people?

    We must understand that sooner or later Putin will be replaced by a new leader, whom the current president is probably already preparing.


    Do you catch the meaning? Already cooking! Myself!

    And they won’t ask us. Democracy, it is.
