Foreign Affairs: “Putin’s doctrine” will lead Russia to a dead end

The so-called Putin Doctrine, which has become Russia's main strategy in foreign and domestic policy, can greatly harm the country both in economic terms and in the sphere of international relations, writes American political analyst Leon Aron in his article for Foreign Affairs


Foreign Affairs: “Putin’s doctrine” will lead Russia to a dead end


In order to understand “where Russia is going,” Washington needs to understand that the main strategy of Russia in foreign and domestic policy is the so-called Putin Doctrine, a political scientist writes in the pages of Foreign Affairs. According to the analyst, the main goals of such a “doctrine” are to maintain the role of Russia as “a nuclear power, a cultural hegemon in the post-Soviet space (with the exception of the Baltic states) and a great world power.”

“Because of Putin’s special perception of the last of these imperatives, Russia is trying to counterbalance the United States,” stresses Aaron. And the provision of temporary asylum to the whistleblower Edward Snowden was only one of the steps in this direction, the researcher notes: the Kremlin also opposes Washington in Iran and Syria.

In recent months, the Kremlin has increasingly pursued the goals set by the Doctrine: this is evidenced by both “growing authoritarianism in domestic policy” and “non-compliance in foreign policy,” Aaron writes. Despite the efforts of American politicians and the signing of the START III treaty in 2010, as a result of which “the number of deployed strategic nuclear weapons and their delivery vehicles from the United States has decreased to the Russian level”, Russia continues to fight for the status of a nuclear power, stubbornly resisting the creation of an anti-missile defense system , "Perceived as a threat."

Vladimir Putin also continues to move toward another goal, the Eurasian Union "under the control of Russia," writes the analyst. Hillary Clinton has already criticized this initiative as an "attempt to re-Sovietize the region." At the same time, Russia refuses to settle with Georgia the problem of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which “actually remain Russian protectorates,” Aron notes.

In addition, Putin’s regime "is still trying to strengthen state control over society," the political analyst stresses. “This impulse shows that the Russian authorities prefer short-term stability, rather than large-scale reforms necessary to maintain long-term progress in the economy, politics and the social sphere,” the analyst believes. Repressions are continuing against the Russian opposition, especially against “its most charismatic leaders, for example, Alexei Navalny and Sergey Udaltsov,” the author notes.

Meanwhile, Moscow’s domestic policy is becoming an “important annoying factor” in Russian-American relations. In particular, in a recent statement by the White House on the reasons for Barack Obama’s refusal to meet with Vladimir Putin, Washington’s concerns about the state of «human rights and civil society’ in Russia were heard for the first time - the administration of the American president was silent about this, says Aaron. However, “repressions in Russia, as well as frantic anti-American propaganda, which always complements them, are unlikely to stop in the foreseeable future,” the analyst believes. According to Aron, such a policy is dangerous for Russia, as it undermines economic growth and worsens the investment climate.

The “Putin Doctrine” can be costly for Russia, both in the economic and in the social and, ultimately, in the political sphere, a political scientist warns. This year, the country's economic growth is projected at 2,4%, which is incomparable with the 7-8% that were observed during Putin’s first two terms, and two times less than the 5% promised by him last year, Aar writes. The country's budget next year will be seriously cut, and the authorities will start “planning with education and health care,” and pensions, which are “the lowest in Europe anyway,” are unlikely to rise, the analyst believes.

“Tightening the belts,” the Russian authorities will push their supporters away, because Putin “can no longer generously shower them with handouts,” Aaron continues. Already, the president is rapidly losing support among the population - but according to the “logic of authoritarianism,” the authorities' response to such discontent will be a further increase in repression and “an even more active search for an external enemy, which the United States appears to be all the time.”

Because of the confrontational course that Russia has chosen as part of the Doctrine, Washington may prolong the “strategic pause” recently announced by Barack Obama, the analyst believes. And as long as Russia continues to follow the Doctrine, the US authorities will most likely not restore full-fledged relations with Moscow. At the same time, Putin’s confidence in the correctness of his course “will remain unshakable,” unless “the economic crisis or the president is embarrassed by the whole country, for example, by failing the Olympics”. According to the political scientist, Putin was overcome by pride, "the illness of all authoritarian rulers, who had lingered for a long time at their post."

And relations with the United States will be able to recover no earlier than 2018 of the year, when Putin begins to prepare for elections for the fourth term, “despite the fact that today the percent of Russians do not want to see him at the 55 presidential office,” the political scientist said. By that time, due to large-scale protests that will unite "opponents of the political and economic course", the president may have to falsify the elections in order to win and "catch up with Stalin, who was in power of the 24 of the year." According to Aron, only after these events can Russia abandon the “Putin Doctrine”, and a new diplomatic era will finally come in relations between Moscow and Washington.

    Тonly because Putin opposes the puppeteers should he be respected. And everyone makes mistakes, the person is not perfect.

        - names and facts ... If we see evidence, we will no longer respect. Deripaska, somehow drunk, told something that "we cannot allow anyone to come to power, therefore we decided to appoint Volodka (just so familiarly)", etc. in the same spirit. And a month later in Pigalevo (or Pikalyovo?) We saw a completely different picture - what kind of Volodya? Received Deripaska for a long tongue for the most not indulge in all of Russia, well, he still remained in his place, very lucky. Who else voiced something like that? I would read and would be grateful to you.

          I judge by indirect indications. and dark horses are dark because they are dark.
          sorry for the tautology.
          nothing prevented him from reviving the former power of the state. small economic growth is not his merit: a market economy is subject to cyclicality and the fact that the economy has more or less recovered after shock therapy is a reflection of the essence of the market, even despite legislation aimed at destroying the economy.
          and what is being done now - privatization 2.0 is being carried out, instead of actually strengthening the state, and the people - they are “eating” everything, the main thing is there is more bread and circuses.
          this ostentatious procession in proud mournful solitude - for this minus his PR managers.

          when all strategic sectors come under the full control of the state, and the rest with the strict rules of the game remains for private owners, then you can still believe that it works for the homeland, and not for someone else.

            Puppeteers, of course, exist and they are trying to manipulate in Russia. Sometimes they succeed, especially with EBN. Now it turns out less often, I would like to get out of their control altogether. But such things are not quickly done. And do not forget about the 5th column in Russia.

            Regarding the "cyclicity" - you're in vain. The most "successful" occupation is to predict the past and draw conclusions about regularities (this is me about "perestroika" and "cheerful" 90s) without seeing sabotage and betrayal + "hints" from "helpers" outside. To talk about the cyclical nature of an omnipotent and independent market is either the stupidity of Ph.D. and d.e.s. from the Higher School of Economics (something of them to hell ... divorced), or a deliberate distortion of reality (rather all together - both the first and second).

            And to dream of every second nationalization is either youthful maximalism that does not take into account the pitfalls in the same government, or ... ordinary short-sightedness.

            We, of course, are not Panama or Nicaragua (we slightly turned off the "usual" course - intervention and sanctions), but the instruments of influence on us are also a little thinner and more imperceptible + are used by the "bouquet".

            Z.Y. once they started talking about changes in the law - you see you live well, do not starve, your head is busy not looking for something to eat, so as not to bend yourself from hunger.

        Those Russians who want more stringent decisions from Putin can take part in a march to Moscow, the goal of which will be to gather enough people to amend the constitution and gain sovereignty for Russia.

              Sovereignty - is the independence of the state from other states in the implementation of its domestic and foreign policies.

              Russia forced to peg the ruble to the dollar? No - this is done voluntarily - claims to EBNu.
              Russia forced to join the WTO? No - this is done voluntarily - claims to Vova.

              And now the most interesting thing - in accordance with part 2 of article 80, EBN could sign the Federal Law on the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, since pegging the ruble to the dollar in no way affects politics or international legal relations, but Vova did not have the right to enter the WTO, since this the action automatically transfers relations in the WTO zone to the jurisdiction of the WTO court, which has a drum not only of the legal system of the Russian Federation, but also of the international legal system, and this is already a voluntary restriction of sovereignty and, as a consequence, a violation of parts 2 and 3 of article 80 of the Constitution.

              And Vova managed to push through a law contrary to Articles 19 and 80 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, that is, to violate the Constitution (which he generally does on a regular basis).

                  Does not affect

                  Bank of Russia is a legal entity. person (part 3 of 1 Federal Law on the Central Bank of the Russian Federation)
                  Has its own income (h 3 s 2)
                  Is the lender of last resort for credit organizations (p 3 of 4)
                  Carries out the maintenance of accounts of budgets of the budget system of the Russian Federation (p 6 out of 4)
                  Registers credit organizations, issues and revokes licenses, exercises banking supervision (Clause 8,9 s 4)
                  The Central Bank has the right to participate in the capitals of a number of banks and international organizations (hours 2 out of 8, out of 9)
                  All of the above refers to legal activity, and the Central Bank as an independent organization (and this independence is determined by the main function of the Central Bank) is allowed to protect its interests in possible legal conflicts. In modern conditions, 2 departments of one organization can sue each other, the Ministry of Finance can sue the Ministry of Health, and then international and licensed activities - what happens if the Central Bank does not have the opportunity to go to court?
                  Plus - such independence is part of the system of checks and balances - but how does any zealous president, after giving out a bunch of promises (and promises require money), want to turn on the printing press? This president will drive the ruble to zero by unsecured paper, and the main function of the Central Bank is to ensure the stability of the ruble.

                  This is not politics as such, it is economics, economic politics free of dictates from outside. No one bothers to amend the Constitution in the manner prescribed by law, no one bothers to get rid of the dollar, no legal or political consequences in case of moving away from the dollar will follow - Russia is tied to the dollar by virtue of the decision of the Government, which has common interests with the mattress.

                    Do you think typing a large text is a powerful argument? The ruble mass in Russia is 6 times less than it should be. Those. you can safely print another 5 \ 6 and give them out at a negative percentage for the development of the economy, and send the dollar to hell.

                    BUT! It is not in the interests of the Central Bank to print and distribute normal loans, their task is to maintain the colonial and raw material status of Russia.
                    Since, he prints exactly as many rubles as they will bring him dollars. And where to get the dollars? That's right - from the sale of raw materials.
                    Of course, you can earn them from high-tech production, but to build production you need to take a loan, and we have a loan of 20%. So we are sitting on an oil needle to the joy of the United States, which came up with all this and actually owns the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.

                      The ruble mass in Russia is 6 times less than it should be.

                      Want to get inflation at 600%?

                      and send the dollar to hell.
                      Who is bothering? Part 3 of Article 80 of the Constitution - the main directions of foreign and domestic policy is determined by the president - cards in hand.

                      It is not in the interests of the Central Bank to print and distribute normal loans, their task is to maintain the colonial and raw material status of Russia.
                      You require the Central Bank of criminality - in these conditions, he can’t give loans thoughtlessly - this will cause uncontrolled inflation, and his task is to ensure the stability of the ruble, for this at one time and clung to the dollar.

                      Since, he prints exactly as many rubles as they will bring him dollars. And where to get the dollars? That's right - from the sale of raw materials.
                      And?

                      Of course, you can earn them from high-tech production, but to build production you need to take a loan, and we have a loan of 20%.
                      Yeah, and you can change this only by changing the whole system - increasing the participation of the state in high-tech projects. Instead, the state is winding up from the real sector.


                      to the joy of the United States, who came up with all this and actually own the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
                      But do we have the main gesheft from this, and not our native domestic nomenclature-kleptocratic oligarchy, consisting of immigrants from the CPSU and law enforcement agencies of the USSR and the Russian Federation?
                      Ask the owners of profitable businesses, their shareholders, board members, etc. - everywhere, directly or indirectly, the "ears" of the KGB / FSB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the prosecutor's office stick out.

    “According to the analyst, the main goals of such a“ doctrine ”is to support the role of the United States as a“ nuclear power, a cultural hegemon in the global space and a great world power.
    Because of Obama's particular perception of the last of these imperatives, the US is trying to counterbalance the world. "

And they have no idea that Putin simply does not want the adversaries who have grown up and incited by them , cannibals and scumbags of all degrees, just like in Syria, they raped and tore our children by the legs! am

    And relations with the United States will be restored no earlier than 2018, when Putin will prepare for the fourth term.

    Obama will leave earlier, in January 2017. I hope that whoever replaces him will not pull the cat by the tail for 2 years.

    How the "respected" Aaron wants Russia to lag behind in American foreign policy, to approve of the chaos it creates in North Africa and the Middle East! Not to be this gentleman "good"! Russia is a self-sufficient country. She doesn’t need any hints about what to do and how to do it. Particularly indignant are the "councils" on how to conduct domestic policy. Why are you poking your nose into someone else's garden. With calm impudence they stirred up Egypt, now they are calling on the parties to the conflict to peace. The greatest cynicism and impudence !!!

    nothing has changed over the past 40 years, American analysts analyze it like a carbon copy, only personalities change. In fact, Putin makes many very serious mistakes, first of all by allowing an unseen, infuriated printer to lawmaking, and secondly, relying on officials as a support to the authorities. But this is domestic policy, as far as foreign is concerned - he has the full support of the vast majority of the population. To confront the evil of the world, not to rob and humiliate our own country - this is worthy of respect. It is clear that the “intransigence in foreign policy” for puppeteers is a factor of irritation, which is why they scream at every corner about the “growing authoritarianism in domestic politics”, poking various kinds of upstarts and inadequacies like Udaltsov and keepers like Alekseeva and others like them into wires.

      I don’t remember Russia ever reporting any country. But the West has staggered us with its criticism, it’s not like that, it’s not like that, and not only the press is engaged in this, but also the very top authorities. They are probably afraid of us and will be wiped out in vain, with such articles they are trying to weaken the moral of the nation.

    From Minsk. There cannot be only black or white paint in the world. In addition to the American ones, which many visitors to the site do not tolerate, there are also yours, Russian political scientists. And they are quite sensible. Russian political scientist Andrei Piontkovsky, believes that Barack Obama's refusal to meet with Putin is a forced decision:

    - This decision was made under pressure from both public opinion and the US Congress. Obama is very proud that he considers himself the architect of the "reset": there was a bad President Bush, who spoiled relations with all countries, including Russia; relations with Russia. It was a complete illusion, because it was not about Bush, but the attitude of the Russian leadership. The Kremlin needs America as an enemy. There is no other ideology for rallying the masses around a national leader than creating an image of an enemy, especially one as powerful as the United States. Everything that happens in the world is interpreted by the Kremlin as US intrigues directed against Russia. The Kremlin leaders have already repeated this so many times that they themselves believe in it. But they are dependent on the West: all the activities of the Russian regime are robbing their own country and creating "common funds" not in China, not in Venezuela, but in the USA and other Western countries. And the more they feel dependent on the West, the more they hate the West. It is a very complex combination of an inferiority complex and a greatness complex.

    - Does it mean that Obama’s refusal to meet with Putin is another brick in creating the image of the enemy, as you said?

    - Of course yes. I think Putin is very pleased with Obama’s decision and even proud. In his eyes and in the eyes of the people, this will be yet another proof of how Russia, led by Putin, courageously and heroically resists American imperialism. But at the same time, the attitude of the Kremlin and the Russian political elite towards the West is rather controversial. This is hatred, the desire to aggravate relations, and at the same time, fear. As we now know, if we take this unfortunate Snowden, the American special services, like the special services of other countries of the world, listen to everything that is possible, and, of course, they know the accounts of the top Russian leadership. And with a serious desire, they can apply their own legislation to combat illicitly acquired capital, mobilize the international organization FATF (Financial Action Task Force). This, of course, worries the Russian elite.

    - However, presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said the Kremlin was disappointed with Obama’s decision ...

    - Recently, the Kremlin has only been doing it by mocking the Americans in various forms. Look at the behavior of China and Russia in the Snowden situation. China took the necessary information from him and got rid of him instantly, putting him on a plane to Moscow, without engaging in any political shows. We have been dancing around Snowden for two months, arranging press conferences, hypocritically gasping about how bad the American special services are, how they listen to everyone. The same behavior was with the Tsarnaevs. After all, it is known that Tsarnaev spent the entire 2012 in Russia, in the Caucasus. And from the first to the last minute he was under the close supervision of the Russian special services. But I went back safely to the USA. And when the American senators came to clarify the circumstances of the Tsarnaevs case, they were brazenly lied to their faces that there was no Tsarnaev, although there were official statements from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Dagestan. The behavior of the Kremlin, in modern terms, "trolling" the United States and Obama personally. And even such a "rag" as Obama is forced to reckon with American public opinion and take such a demonstrative step as refusing to travel to Moscow.

    "Our opposition" goes to the Kremlin for banquets, prosecutors are worried about it, and oppositionist Kvachkov is in prison. "Putin's doctrine" is to consolidate the status quo in politics and economics, to make the transfer of power manageable. The State Duma is a gathering of millionaires, the government and their wives are in business, or they cover "successful" businessmen, it's disgusting to talk about governors, a snake's nest. I read the theory of elites, the author Vasiliev, our entire "elite" is an ersatz elite, exploiting its administrative resource for the purpose of personal enrichment. They already lack revenues from oil and gas. We are deliberately led to a social explosion in order to establish a harsh dictatorship. The global tendency, games in international and interstate confrontation are negotiable, for those who draw conclusions looking in the box. Who is preventing the development and adoption of the concept of the country's development, taking into account the works of Muranivsky, LaRouche, Glazyev. The new successful owners are afraid of this and will not allow it. There is no national idea and ideology announced, without this we are being squeezed on all fronts. Everything is artificially closed to one person, and even then he must negotiate with everyone. Need a Concept. From the point of view of liberal sociology, the author of the article saw what he had to see.

    "And as long as Russia continues to follow the Doctrine, the American authorities will most likely never re-establish full-fledged relations with Moscow."

    Well, the American political scientist quite definitely expressed Washington's point of view - if Russia defends its national interests, there will be no "relationship".
    The "argumentation" of the political scientist in the article is also typical in general for the Western "analysis" of Russian politics, both foreign and domestic.
    In general, the article is a big "PLUS". Leon Aron once again demonstrated the one-sidedness of the American approach to relations with Russia. And you don't need to minus it for it!

    We still do not have a doctrine, but there is the possibility and hope that V.V. Putin will have the strength to bring the matter to the real doctrine (the one that is needed) and build a system of power under it with its continuity, precisely within the framework of the doctrine. The Anglo-Saxons, the Chinese, as the largest world forces, are a perfect example (not technically, or ideologically, but in principle).
    This is what the "partners" are afraid of, they are torpedoing.

    Any person going to the presidential elections in Russia under the slogan "kick America's backside" will get thirty percent of the votes for this alone. If Putin had surrendered Syria, Iran and Snowdon, he would have turned into Gorbachev, and he needs it - it's better not the love of Americans than hatred Russians.

    The US leadership was not ready for changes in the foreign policy of the Russian Federation. Moscow's stubbornness over a number of painful issues for Americans is beginning to annoy them. The Obama administration is at the moment in a state of confusion and is starting to make one mistake after another. The lack of "civilized" leverage over the Kremlin enrages them. This article is nothing compared to what comes next. Ahead is a protracted hysteria, cleaner than the times of the USSR.

    And quite sensibly reasoning. Russian political scientist Andrei Piontkovsky, believes

    Such sensible people are apparently paid from the same treasury as the author of the article. It is not necessary to create an image of an enemy from the USA, with each of their actions they create it themselves. And intentions are always judged by actions. If they climb from all sides to the borders of Russia by not washing in such a way (here Europe is here and Asia), military provocations (Georgia). I'm not talking about the rest of the world where they are usually cynically mercantile. Of course, state propaganda tint these actions with the necessary intonations, but the essence always speaks of its existence (if you do not talk about it at all, then yes). The rest is verbiage, a cover for one’s actions (if we talk about the image of the United States).

    The headline of the article "Putin's Doctrine will lead Russia to a dead end"

    "The main goals of such a" doctrine "is to maintain the role of Russia as" a nuclear power, a cultural hegemon in the post-Soviet space (with the exception of the Baltic states) and a great world power. "

    It is a pity that they do not want to see us in the West as a great world power and blatantly declare this.
