Spirit of Apparatchik Surkov

50
After the resignation of Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, a new high-profile event in Russia was the resignation of Vladislav Surkov, who for more than ten years was a man who essentially formed the internal policy of the state. And if, in principle, everything was clear with the motives of Serdyukov’s resignation, then Surkov’s resignation, furnished as leaving entirely at his own will, leaves many questions.




One of these questions can be formulated as follows: the current Russian government no longer needs Surkov as a generator of ideas for the formation of the foreign policy that has been built up in the state in recent years (the post-Yeltsin era)? It is noteworthy that it is precisely this issue that causes a rather intense controversy in the foreign press, which could not fail to respond to the resignation of Vladislav Surkov from the post of head of the government administration staff of Russia.

For example, according to the Financial Times publication, which also refers to representatives of Russian liberal forces, the Kremlin no longer needs “gray cardinals.” The point of the FT idea is that if earlier Vladimir Putin was forced to resort to a certain veiling of the administration of domestic policy, then after the third election to the presidency, he is ready for tougher and more irreconcilable actions. They say that if before the head of state needed such a person as Vladislav Surkov in order to conduct a kind of casting for the role of suitable managers, then today (as the Financial Times believes) Putin decided to work in this direction on his own. And also independently, in the opinion of the same publication, to put pressure on the opposition.

But if you say that Vladimir Putin no longer needs the services of Vladislav Surkov as a political consultant, as a generator of ideas for the administration of domestic politics, then you need to mentally return a little while ago. In all likelihood, the star of Surkov, precisely as the “gray cardinal” of Russian politics, as the same Western publications called him at one time, began to fade in the last year of Dmitry Medvedev’s presidency. The political and near-political controversy began to manifest itself in 2011-2012 years so actively that the very concept of "sovereign democracy", which Vladislav Surkov gave birth to the world began to sway. Someone at the same time said that, he says, it is Surkov himself who is carrying out the “control rocking of the boat” in order to further verify the strength of the vertical of power built on this very “boat”, and someone said that the Surkov mechanism itself failed and that the political system may collapse if it does not begin to replace one support with another.

We draw attention to the fact that Vladislav Surkov was working as deputy (first deputy) head of the presidential administration from August 1999 of the year (as you know, the country was still headed by Boris Yeltsin) to December 2011 of the year. In December, 2011, when the largest protest actions in recent years appeared in Russia, Surkov was redirected to work at the Government. Then the government was headed by Vladimir Putin. Why such a move with Surkov was undertaken at that time? There is an opinion on this score that Putin withdrew Surkov from the presidential administration in order to prepare the necessary basis for obtaining an opportunity to run for a third term, and at the same time carry out preliminary personnel work on the composition of the future government, taking into account the attacks that were undertaken by the so-called dissenters . If this is actually the case, then Surkov seems to have coped with his obligations. It seems to be ... But after the presidential election and the personnel selection of candidates for the government, Surkov himself remained in the government. One gets the impression that Vladislav Yuryevich (and not Dmitry Anatolyevich) was determined to be responsible for the work of the Government of the Russian Federation, formed in May 2012 of the year. They say that Vladislav Yuryevich, since you are a political consultant and the “father of the current political system,” so is your demand.

And in fact, it turns out that it was Surkov for everything, to put it mildly, the flaws of the government and answered. According to official sources, he himself wrote a statement asking for his release from 26 in April of this year. What is April 26 2013? This is “tomorrow” from the day of the direct line with President Putin, on which the head of state was criticized for the fact that with the frankly unintelligible work of many government officials, these same officials still occupy their high posts. Then (during the line) the president declared that the Government was working only one year - time, they say, is not enough to show himself, but apparently, at the same time, he already dialed Vladislav Surkov’s phone number in his mind in order to say that he (Putin ) the government, let's say, covered up, but now it is necessary to make organizational conclusions in the government itself. It was after this that Vladislav Yuryevich suddenly showed “his own desire” to leave the post of the head of the government apparatus.

His opinion on the resignation of Vladislav Surkov is a member of the Union of Journalists, a public and political figure Alexander Sevastyanov, who at one time was the co-chairman of the NDPR (National Sovereign Party of Russia). He believes that one of the reasons for Surkov’s resignation is his pathological unwillingness to take into account the presence of Russian political elites in Russia, which could become a support for the authorities. Sevastyanov is sure that it was at the suggestion of Vladislav Surkov in the Russian Federation that the Russian political elites were finally turned into illegal circles, which were denied the opportunity to defend the interests of 80% of the population, that is, the Russian people. Sevastyanov reminds Surkov of the fact that it was precisely because of the implementation of his domestic political paradigm that the Russian national political forces were forced in December 2011 of the year to go to Bolotnaya Square, joining the movement of the so-called dissenters. And the same Alexander Sevastyanov expressed the idea that the resignation of Surkov allegedly made it clear that the current government was going to turn to face the most numerous nation in Russia.

It is clear that Alexander Sevastyanov expresses his, let's say, painful, because in 2003, the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation headed by him, the National-State Party, deprived of registration, and from the second attempt. And, probably, Sevastyanov, retired Vladislav Surkov, wants to see what is warming his soul. But, frankly, the likelihood of the connection of Surkov’s resignation with a possible revision of the national policy of the current authorities headed by Vladimir Putin seems to be minimal.

Much more likely factor (one of the factors) of the resignation of Vladislav Surkov is quite a significant decrease in the rating of the Russian authorities and, especially, the rating of the Cabinet of Ministers. It is noteworthy that the drop in the rating is not connected at all with the position of Bolotnaya activists and their supporters, but with the fact that many Russians who have been loyal to the government all this time were somewhat disappointed with its current somewhat unintelligible policy. Not that they were waiting for a spectacular leap in the economy and the fight against corruption, but at least they were hoping for real things. So far we have received a well-looked through imitation and a clear delay in the beginning of this work. And if they continue to imitate, then neither Surkov, nor anyone else will help ... I had to be tied up with imitation.

So, it turns out? President Putin's resignation of Surkov makes it clear that he is really ready to go on direct rule in the conditions of emerging stagnation - without the use of technologists, PR-managers and other "gray cardinals"? If so, then the Russian bureaucratic system, along with its bureaucratic content, now obviously takes a wait and see attitude. Like, you need to wait a bit: will the president go by the heads of those who frankly merge all state work for the sake of personal interests, or will everything settle down again.

Frankly, well, I really would not want it to settle down or even, say, get lost. I would like the resignations being conducted to be also a pre-emption of the failure of others - a sort of Damocles sword that would hang and tickle the bureaucratic top. Will it tickle? .. Or even the spirit of the apparatchik Surkov will make its own adjustments? Questions ... Questions ...

    according to the Financial Times, which also refers to representatives of the Russian liberal forces, the Kremlin has ceased to need "gray cardinals."

    Yes, gray cardinals are better off.
    I would like the ongoing resignations to be also a pre-emptive of the failed work of others - a sort of Damocles sword that would hang and tickle the bureaucratic little head. Will it tickle? .. Or even the spirit of apparatchik Surkov will make his own adjustments?

    Well, wait and see.

          The article was not about Surkov, but about Putin. I think: Leave the President alone. The elections were very recent. To new - far. But all those who climbed onto Olympus must understand that sooner or later, but they will have to get off. Some will descend smoothly, and some head over heels. It is possible that some will get a kick in the ass. So Surkov’s resignation personally doesn’t hurt me in any way. But he’s not happy either because Serdyukov’s resignation (interestingly, both S-kov ... Who else is there with these letters and in the same sequence?) Wait and see whether it would be better.

          I am amazed at the degree to which misunderstanding must be reached in order to consider Surkov the “gray cardinal” of the Russian government !!
          Groundhogs NO ONE and calling him NO! A citizen of "muddy" origin and under-education, who entered the presidential administration after the "surrender" of his patron Khodorkovsky. "Created" conflicting concepts and himself entangled in his "inventions"!
          Dear, well, this is a soap bubble! And such attention is paid to him. All this fuss is very similar to a distracting maneuver to divert public attention from the REAL "architects" of this rotten system.
          Wake up and think for yourself, and then you will see the origin of the root system of the current contradictions. You will see WHAT this system eats and WHERE it pumps life-giving juices, which it sucks from our state and our citizens. And all these marmots, these are just some scarecrows intended for the sewer of our indignation.
          SEE ROOT! - said Kozma Prutkov.

            And, if you agree with the fact that this "leader", the author of Russia's domestic policy (!!!), then he just takes the hell out of the thought that SUCH high and super important posts in the Russian state are occupied by dullness, in the literal and figurative sense!
            His "thoughtfulness" can be judged by numerous publications, speeches, interviews. In a word, enough factual material is enough to make an objective impression of this “figure”.

      The authentic birthplace of Vladislav Surkov is unclear [1]. According to the website of the President of Russia, Vladislav Surkov was born in the village of Solntsevo, Lipetsk Region [2] [3]. According to other sources - in the village of Duba-Yurt, Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Republic [3]. In an interview with Der Spiegel magazine, Surkov stated that he had lived in Chechnya for the first five years, and his father was a Chechen [3] [4].

      I am proud to tell everyone that I belong to this outstanding, beautiful, very strong and world famous people [5]

      .

      Mother - Surkova Zoya Antonovna, born on May 31, 1935, arrived in Duba-Yurt in 1959 according to the distribution, after graduating from the Lipetsk Pedagogical Institute, to work at the Duba-Yurt school [6] [non-authoritative source?].

      Father - Andarbek Danilbekovich Dudaev (nickname Yuri), according to some reports, like his mother also worked as a teacher in an oak-yurt school [3].

      As suggested by some journalists, the name of Vladislav Surkov at birth is Aslambek Andarbekovich Dudaev [7]. After the divorce, the mother gave her son her last name and changed her middle name to Yuryevich. According to the investigation of the Izvestia newspaper, upon entering the school and institute he was already called Vladislav Yurievich Surkov and received a passport in the same name, from which the author of the article in Izvestia concludes that Surkov always had this first name, middle name and last name [8].

      After the divorce of his parents at the age of five, he stayed with his mother and moved
      al to the city of Skopin, Ryazan region [9].

    An article by Alexey Volodin considers the validity of any idea of ​​building the political cuisine of Russia according to Surkov’s pattern.
    The article is presented in such a way that the whole spectrum of opinions on the “gray cardinal” of Russian public opinion is confirmed, each analyst finds his own vision of this phantom man.
    The "spirit" of apparatchik Surkov is manifested quite openly.
    His future is foggy. It all depends on the political alignment of the goals of the Russian elite and the opposition of ideas. The demand for personalities of the type of V. Surkov in the country of Black and White.

      Surkov is a hardware schemer who, even in his intrigues, got into a relationship between Putin and Medvedev, playing in favor of the second. As a result, the top could even turn into a non-functioning structure. In fact - it was in the hands of the West. The future of such a politician is possible only with significant funding. Following Surkov, it would be necessary to send Dvorkovich ... And replace the entire Government.

    Another evidence that there is no friends in politics, when Surkov needed him, he was in power, as soon as he was no longer needed, they threw him out and did not blink an eye, Medvedev will most likely work until the end of his term, and then he will disappear unknown from Russian political life because, as practice has shown, a real figure capable of replacing Putin is not and doesn’t appear, all that is is either political bodies that have outlived their lives like Zyuganov or Zhirinovsky, worthless Mironov, the clown Prokhorov, and the complete absence of Wow thinking and state mind Medvedev.

    Putin appreciates and keeps close only loyal people. Therefore, everything is much simpler, Surkov began to work for two gentlemen, while he still sympathizes with the opposition.

    Alexey Volodin always sets out a topic well in his article, so you can comment on it with his own quotes:
    "We draw attention to the fact that Vladislav Surkov has been working as deputy (first deputy) head of the presidential administration since August 1999 (as you know, then the country was still led by Boris Yeltsin)"
    "Surkov’s star, just like the" gray cardinal "of Russian politics, as he was once called by the same Western publications, began to fade in the last year of the presidency of Dmitry Medvedev."
    "the current Russian government has ceased to need Surkov as a generator of ideas for shaping the foreign policy that has been building in the state for the past few years (years of the post-Yeltsin era)"
    In my opinion, everything is clearly stated.
    And most importantly:
    “Frankly, I really wouldn’t like it to subside or even, let's say, get bogged down. I would like the resignations to be carried out as a pre-emptive of the failed work of others - a kind of Damocles sword that would hang and tickle the bureaucrats' little head.”

      That's just rumored hard that Dvorkovich will replace Dudaev;)

      Mr. President decides nothing in Russia. Those who stand behind Dvorkovich, Chubais decide for him. Try to act independently, they will immediately remove him. However, he never wanted to act independently, he was put on this place on these conditions. Pawn is the exact description of this piece.

        Most likely, putting Putin, they planned that he would be their puppet. But he clearly did not justify their hopes. Yes, today Dvorkovichi, Chubais, etc. have a great influence in Russia. But to say that Putin is their puppet is extremely wrong. In his actions he is independent. But, of course, he has so far to reckon with many.

    Surkov is a man of the "family" of Yeltsin (especially with a small letter). Almost the entire “family”, except Naina, has already received foreign citizenship .... the road is there for them .... now the turn has come for Surkov ..... especially since he began to shine with Timakova as one of the financialists of the opposition forces. Cheka does not sleep. spotted .... and he sat up and go already ...... time to merge, I agree with the GDP.

    I elected Putin as the President of my country, I trust him, I consider all his personnel and other actions to be appropriate and justified. Surkov removed - so it is necessary!
    But I still have a feeling of some slowness of the President in the exercise of the powers delegated to him. I am the 7th decade running out, I would like more decisive action. Yuri Petrunin. Veteran of the Armed Forces of the USSR, Polar, Gatchina.

      I agree with you. But this is just a feeling. Remember the slowness of 10 years ago, and compare with what is now. I'm talking about the decisions that were made then. Putin is not a populist, never promises that it is impossible to fulfill. But in a quiet step, measured (albeit at a slow step), he goes towards the goal. Scrupulously and meticulously raking the rubble that he got. Not missing anything, and not jumping from one to another. He is patiently amazing! So many years to engage in routine, and work specifically for the future, and not for the sake of your comfortable present, it is worth a lot! Many people want faster, but faster will not work. Enough of shock therapies and broken firewood from us!

        Possession of martial arts is a very good help for worldview and decision making. So who can be put next to Putin in world politics? And this is with the very limited economic and military capabilities of Russia. The ability to wait, apply a pause, use the weakness of an overwhelming force to your advantage ... while not losing the main thread and purpose. Our other perestroika and post-perestroika leaders (Gorbi, EBN, DAM) were not gifted with strategic and clear thinking, were not unsuspected, and were manipulated to one degree or another by the West.

        Putin is a cautious leader. He understands the huge risks for the country from certain actions. Here we will strengthen the army, special services, we will deal with the media and then, I think, events will go much faster.

          Events are already unfolding exponentially, if you look slightly up, the main thing is to have time to make the right decisions.
          And to a friend yurypetrunin from Gatchina, I recommend spending three hours of your personal time at the link:
          http://efedorov.ru/node/1702

              Why repeat it, I read it in your first post of this thread and have nothing against it. I decided to help a bit with the question "Why is it so slow." But you, apparently, didn’t follow the link given by me (there is a movie there for three hours, and you wrote your post 30 minutes after mine). I called you a comrade based on your age, when everyone was a friend, but it turned out to be uncomilf (for some reason). Gatchina mentioned, because it is close to me, but it turned out familiarly ... Well, God bless him, look - sign off, no - it means no.

    Honestly, I have a suspicion that Marmots know a lot. And he knows a lot. And in general, maybe he didn’t lose confidence, but on the contrary, he was entrusted with a very important thing: to form and lead a controlled opposition on the eve of the hour “Ch.” Well that is, the opposition thinks that it is on its own, all so independent. But it wasn’t there.
    And again - a bearer of high state secrets in sight and under control. And not in the Kremlin again.

    Personally, I got "effective managers", asexual, unprincipled creatures, who instead of a heart have "professionalism" and personal petty self-interest. Surkov, Kudrin, Gref - they also have numbers. And Minin and Pozharsky are needed. I hope to live up to the time when dullness and murmur will be under the iron heel of passionarity

    Surkov made a very true decision for himself. His "scent" of a scorched apparatchik who knows how to get along with ANY bosses did not let him down. In a situation where BB began to chop the branch on which he was sitting, i.e. to reproach the government that he had born and especially his faithful VRIO Medvedev for not fulfilling his, in principle, impossible orders, Surkov’s voluntary departure is much better for him than to sit and wait until his reputation in the upper echelons of power is lowered below the plinth. So the day is not far off when VV “vollens nevolens” will have to take on not only presidential, but also prime functions, i.e. proceed to extraordinary methods of governing the country according to the type used by I.V. Stalin. Well, be responsible for their decisions in full. And this is harder than "giving instructions" to the government. On the other hand, there may be more benefits, at least as long as Putin remains in power. So when he leaves due to old age, illness, or other reasons beyond his control, then his entire "vertical of power" may turn out to collapse like a house of cards, turning into a "horizontal anarchy." The authorities, "imprisoned" under one, even "very" man, have no other options and cannot be. And history has proven it many times.
    My opinion, I could be wrong. Therefore, I do not impose it on anyone. And, God forbid, make a mistake. But as a systems engineer with a very substantial experience, I feel that if I am mistaken, it is not very strong. Power is a system that must function like a clock, regardless of whoever controls it today. And if the helmsman made a wrong course or makes unacceptable turns for the country, as Khrushchev or Gorbi and Yeltsin laid the same, then the system should automatically correct or stop these shynesses and not allow the country to run aground or break into rocks. And if the helmsman starts to interfere with the system, then bring him to the wall ... with indicators of his activity and gently suggest that one more step to the left or right and ..... no one will know where his grave is.
