"2020 was supposed to be the year of Putin": the United States named the reasons for the failure of the plan of the Russian leader

In 2020, Russia was supposed to regain its greatness, and Putin was to receive the status of an "exceptional statesman" and become a tsar, but recent events have shown that they did not manage to realize all of their plans, the plan was unsuccessful. Paul Schinkman writes about this for the American edition of US News.


According to the author, Putin thought everything over and calculated in advance, planning that 2020 will be "the year of Putin." First, he announced radical changes to the Russian Constitution, which would allow him to remain in power for as long as he wanted, and then he came up with a referendum that was supposed to ensure his status as the ruler who has held on to power the most since Stalin.

In addition, the designated celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany were to be an "official party" for Putin's assertion as one of the world's oldest leaders. After all the reforms, Russia should have strengthened its position and international influence.

However, the author writes, the referendum was postponed due to the coronavirus, and was later recognized as a circus, the Victory Day celebrations were canceled and reduced to a minimum, Putin did not succeed. The coronavirus has caused huge damage to Russia, and the whole world was skeptical about the announcement of the creation of the world's first vaccine against COVID-19.

It was a great plan. But then it all went awry

- said Professor of the European University at St. Petersburg Ivan Kurilla.

In addition, the threat of new sanctions looms over Russia due to interference in the internal affairs of other countries, including Belarus, where riots broke out after rigged elections. And Germany has threatened to impose sanctions over the poisoning of opposition leader Navalny.

Taken together, all of this threatens Putin's power, Shinkman argues. The main fear for Putin is the possible spread of unrest to Russia, especially in 2024, when the new presidential elections in Russia will be held.

The last couple of days there is a popular saying: Belarus in 2020 is Russia in 2024. In 2024, the country will host the next presidential elections (...) This is a model that inspires, and it can hit Russia

- the author writes.

At the same time, Putin, despite significant economic deterioration and the coronavirus pandemic, has won several victories by taking advantage of the split in the United States. Thus, he diverted the attention of the population from the problems in his own country. But all this will not allow Putin to rule Russia for a long time to come.

Something is brewing that could create problems for Putin

- concludes the edition.

        They would have survived November 2020 with the elections, and BOTH candidates have ALREADY declared that they have not recognized the victory of their opponent. And this is against the backdrop of the ongoing BLM riots.

        And yes, what "victories" did the Americans gain in 2020?

      Indeed, the year is not entirely successful: lockdown, economic downturn, falling oil prices, rising currency prices, constitutional reform (should have been a triumph, but everyone quickly forgot about it), crumpled May 9 celebrations, Karabakh, Belarus, environmental disasters, permanent protests , the elite raging in internal battles, curtailed national projects.

        All right, only the elite.
        In the past couple of months I have had to use taxi services a lot. I choose a company where all the drivers are Russians, without any "unnecessary" ones.
        Each time I have 10 minutes for a one-on-one conversation with the driver. Not on my initiative, and not always, but often, communication slips into the topic of "politics." I had no idea how it turns out that many people in this profession are angry with the government, and, clearly, with the Russian government, and not with some "foreign ill-wishers of Russia." The nuances may be different, but the emotion, or rather even the feeling, is the same: hatred.

            Apparently, I really do not suspect: my social circle is people who work and are generally not fooled by politics. Some are even "patriotic". And even among those who simply love their homeland, and not blaspheme its ill-wishers, the attitude towards the authorities is described by the words "sarcasm", "censure", and here I was faced with hatred, a couple of times right up to hiss through clenched teeth.

              That is what is. My opinion as a representative of this very population with a salary of 7500 from the government is that the power is too far from the needs of the population, it is hard to see the whole picture because of the security ring, sycophants and the toning of the limousine. God is with them, once they can’t help stealing as if for nothing, so at least then reduce taxes by a factor in order to muffle this anger. The result is a candidate against everyone, and who is pleasing but not from their circle (an official), or refusal to go to the polls as such, or as an alternative, a riot is akin to the Belarusian one.

      In 2020, Nord Stream 2, Turkish Stream, and Yamal LNG were to start operating at full capacity, a large-scale program for rearmament of the army and navy was completed, production of domestic civil aviation aircraft and many more projects were to be launched. And not the coronavirus with the Victory Parade, but the opposition of the West, unfair competition, oil wars led to the fact that the budget did not begin to receive huge funds, the standard of living of the population did not increase. Otherwise, he would have succeeded.

        For which in the Russian Federation there was initially no funds and no, the most optimistic forecasts of the development of our economy did not provide the necessary funding. This is not to say that the GPV 2011-2020 was drawn up completely crazy and without taking into account the real capabilities of the industry. Stalin had better plans in the first five-year plan. Well, maybe not better, but about the same.

        We did not have domestic aircraft, but was the illegitimate fetus of the WTO and the Sukhoi Design Bureau SSJ-100, which was not designed out of great intelligence with the wide use of imported materials and equipment. This is in a country that changes all its budget problems by changing the dollar exchange rate, yeah.

      In general, the problem is that Putin pushed these amendments in violation of all and all laws of the Russian Federation. Such amendments can only be adopted by a referendum, and a referendum is a specific procedure, the procedure for which is prescribed strictly in order to avoid abuse. So no one there did anything, and the procedure for adopting amendments is not a referendum at all.
      What other laws are there when there is a question of personal power?

And even then - just TRY! And his predecessors Obama, George W. Bush, Clinton, etc., were in the same situation. Actually the States and the President then not needed! Just like that - for "pleziru"!

      Probably so that no one has any illusions about the fact that with the United States, and with the West in general, one can become friends and coexist on peaceful and mutually respectful conditions. Otherwise, we still have enough people who have been knocked down by "freedom and democracy" who sincerely believe that the West wishes us well and the only thing that needs to be done for this is just to stand in the "correct" posture and unquestioningly fulfill the whims of "partners" Meanwhile, the West openly says that it wants to see Russia exclusively as a zone of chaos and chaos, devoid of any prospect of retaining influence on the processes of the existence of civilization. They don't like Putin, they probably want Stalin.

    From 2010-2012, it was already clear that the plan was extremely abstract and was likely to fail. In 2014-2016, this is what happened. So the triumph did not take place due to the lack of premises adequate for it.

    To talk about what a person thinks, fears, plans, etc., i.e. what is in a person's head, you need to know him as a person, to be able to communicate with him on all life topics. The author of the article does not have anything like that, which turns the article into another "shitreport" not worth attention. But the local people, undoubtedly, will eat and will build their "castles not in the sand".

    If I were you, I would be more concerned about the state of my own glasses. We'll wait until 2024 and there we'll see whose kung fu and fists are stronger. Democratic you are our ... Freedom-loving ...

    Although I live in Samara, I am resting in the Soviets. The other day, "Bear" has gone through another. Guys, how does it roar, it's just a song.

    Is your middle name a goat by chance? Well she-bo, one-to-one!

    I wanted to become president, only "President" smoked
    It didn’t grow together. Decided to become a parliamentarian - smoked
    only "Parliament" - again by. Tried beer
    "Kozel" and AT THE SAME POINT!

    Let the Americans deal with the coronavirus at home! The experts are shitty! And then almost the whole country will die out or fall apart into states! They can't put things in order, they can't cope with the pandemic! Experts!

    It was a great plan. But then it all went awry

    - declared Professor European University at St. Petersburg Ivan Kurilla.

    What was it smoking?
    Is this the co-author of Mr. Shinkman? Then the place of "leg growth" in the whole opus is clear ...
    From, sorry, deep popus ...

    I read all this nonsense and realized that the situation in Belarus is quite possible in Russia! When Russia is to blame for everything, when they are being bullied by a "newbie", but NOBODY is dead! When does Russia interfere in US elections? Are the CIA and FBI just sleeping? In short, there are a lot of questions, but the answer is one "You are to blame for the fact that I want to eat"!

    And why should the Shinkmans care about Russia ?! Whatever specials in Russia - so Feldman, yes Fridman, and certainly because of the cardon. And the fact that the cause of all Russia's troubles, the apostasy and the extinction of the Russians, not a single Poz will mention. “... to a multitude of people - the greatness of the king, but when the people are scarce, the sovereign is in trouble. .. "Proverbs of Solomon. And it also says “.... for it is written: Do not speak evil of the ruler of your people. ''
