Fight for the title of "Man of the Year": Vladimir Putin against former CIA agents, politicians, terrorists and female singers

75
Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin was among the applicants for the title "Man of the Year" from Time magazine. In total, the magazine announces the names of 44 candidates for this title, which some users consider to be more than honorable, while others are just another PR props.


Fight for the title of "Man of the Year": Vladimir Putin against former CIA agents, politicians, terrorists and female singers


In addition to the Russian president, other politicians were among the “expanded” list, including Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Syrian President Bashar Assad, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President (who would doubt that ...) Barack Obama (person year 2012 according to the version of the same "Time") and the head of some other countries of the world. Competition to all of them will be such persons as, for example, Edward Snowden, after the scandal declassifying the working methods of Western intelligence agencies who settled in Russia and became world-famous, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who, according to American law enforcement officers, organized the attack on the marathon Boston, and this is already interesting ... There is in the list both Indian oppositionist Narendra Modi, and the Pope (or so - the Pope - as you like ...) Francis, and CEO Twitter Twitter Dick Costolo.

If we talk about who at this stage is leading in the number of audience votes in this draft of Time magazine, the top five look like this (by the way, this top five clearly shows the main interests of the voters):

The fifth position with 3,5% of votes is Wendy davis - The main activist for the rights of women in Texas for abortion;

in fourth position with almost 14,5% of votes - Abdel Fattah al-Sisi - The Minister of Defense of Egypt (today one of the leaders of the country);

the third line of the Time rating with 15,5% was "staked out" by the Indian politician mentioned above Narendra Modi, which "Time" considers the main contender for the post of head of the Indian Cabinet after Singh;

on the second line with 17,8% votes - Recep Tayyip Erdogan - Turkish Prime Minister. "Time" calls him one of the authoritarian leaders of modern states;

and on the first line of this kind of “hit parade”, as it turned out, at the moment is not Barack Obama, not Vladimir Putin, and “not even” the Tsarnaev brothers. First place, according to the voters (according to preliminary results) should be given to the American singer Miley Cyrus. Well, judging by the number of views on the service “Youtube”, then no Obama, along with Angela Merkel, this lady (almost Gaga ...) doesn’t work well with her shoes - she (200-300 million) has them (views)! Cyrus is also a good break from “rivals” in the “Time” voting - almost 7% from Erdogan’s nearest “pursuer”.

Well, this young lady, as they say, both stood and rode along with all the “billions” of views and clearly the kind of presentation of her talent. We are somehow more interested in other job seekers. Who are they? Well, at least President Putin. By the way, today the Russian head is on the 13 position with 1% of votes. That is, if we are guided by these voting results, then Vladimir Putin’s chances of becoming “Man of the Year” and appearing on the cover of Time are minimal. But Putin is unlikely to be discouraged. Firstly, he already has such a title - according to the version of the same magazine, he became “the man of the year” in 2007. Then "Time" awarded this title with the following wording:
for exceptional skill in leading the country, which he accepted and led to stability.


Secondly, the result is determined not only by the counting of user voting, but mainly by the decision of the Time editor (as they say, “we conferred, and I decided ...”).

Secondly, Putin himself, by and large, the “fiasco” with the current 13-th place should be of little concern at all. There are many reasons for this, and the main reason is the need to intensify work inside the country. If in the international arena Putin really looks like a person who is capable of literally turning the situation around and directing the course of events in, let's say, the right course, then here in the conduct of domestic policy there are many questions for the Russian president. One of the main issues is a strange lethargy in the fight against corruption. That is, the official struggle seems to be there, but at the same time it is conducted by such methods that do not bring any benefits to the Russian State, let alone benefits for the Russian people. All the benefits remain for a certain "mighty handful", which is already known in the country almost by name. Moreover, the activities of some representatives of this “handful” are well known since the beginning of the 90s.

It is also necessary to take into account the fact that the majority of Russian citizens also care little about what even the most authoritative publications in the world think about our president, and whether these publications are ready to put photos of Vladimir Putin back on their covers. Most worried about is how much the president is ready to protect the interests of not only Syria or Iran, but also the interests of his own people. Putin himself understands that, of course, trying to transfer his successes on the international arena to the domestic Russian arena. How far this works is another question. Attempts - there are results with the hope of waiting. Well, if only because hope always dies last.

If you go back to the direction of the Russian leader’s activity, which is primarily concerned with the absolute majority of Russians (to fight corruption), recently, “signals” from the authorities have gone towards society. The signals are still timid, miniature steps, but still deny that there is no precedent, either.

In this regard, it is necessary to note the intensification of the Investigation Committee’s activities (of course, as many of our readers crave - it didn’t come to the execution of corrupt officials near the wall (and it won’t work for obvious reasons), but I want to believe that the ice of the rule of law did not move). One of the episodes of such activities of the IC is particularly notable.

Just recently, the head of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Bastrykin, sent an appeal to the Chairman of the Supreme Court of Russia, Vyacheslav Lebedev, about the need to initiate a supervisory review proceedings against the decisions of the same Supreme Court in the so-called “prosecutors case”. It is worth recalling that a number of prosecutors with big stars on epaulets, according to the investigation and the testimony of witnesses, were engaged in “protecting” underground casinos in the Moscow region. In this case, several prosecutor's offices near Moscow were arrested, but over time the case began to crumble.

The last “crack”, which the case, in fact, and collapsed, was the release from prison of the former deputy prosecutor of Moscow Region Alexander Ignatenko. As it turned out, Ignatenko in the summer simply expired the maximum period of detention during the investigation (18 months with “Polish imprisonment”). And the expiration of this term, as it turned out, did not happen without some kind of help from the Prosecutor General’s Office, which returned the case to the SC for refusing to confirm the indictment.

Addressing the Supreme Court, Bastrykin says that if the detention of all defendants in the “prosecutors' case” is recognized illegal, and that if all of them “turned out to be innocent”, then this is a clear blow to the competence of the Investigative Committee itself.

In other words, expect new bouts. And if we take into account that such serious government departments come to grips, putting at stake the possibility of a real investigation of anti-corruption cases, then it is obvious that all this “work” should not be ignored by the head of state - a contender for the title “ man of the year "according to Time magazine. Otherwise, it will not even hurt us if the singer Cyrus, for example, takes the first place ...

    All hi
    I’m just wondering what criteria do Americans use to choose “Person of the Year”? They mixed everyone into one heap and politicians, terrorists, and in general "fighters for do not understand something" of some sort. I would be offended if I got into such an environment. Nerds, what can I say. negative

        But the struggle nevertheless goes on. The truth is completely different, they are slowly selling the country.
        The Russian government plans to bail out more than three trillion rubles by 2016 through the sale of state-owned enterprises to individuals. In particular, Rosneft, VTB and ALROS are on sale. In addition, half of Sovcomflot will be sold, more than a quarter of Siberia and Mosenergostroy.

          May the government of the liberal kagal and the Anglo-Saxon puppet so far plans. It plans already in 2011. when Medvedev, as president, launched this program. Type in a search engine privatization 2011 and you will be pleasantly surprised that almost nothing has changed since then.
          The plan for the privatization of state assets was completed for the first half of 2013 by only 4% (17 billion rubles)calculated in the Ministry of Finance. AND the probability of its implementation is low, experts say. Privatization is hindered not only by poor market conditions, but also by lobbying departments and companies, and possibly privatization plans are overestimated on purpose, experts suggest.Stick to privatization plans and prevent holes in the budget called on cabinet members and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during the discussion of the new privatization program for 2014–2016, which envisages receiving by the state 1 trillion rubles. Over the year the Medvedev government has been operating (since May 2012), privatization revenues amounted to 200 billion rubles.
          In the privatization plan for 2014-2016 approved in June last year, the state hoped to completely get rid of its shares in VTB, Sovcomflot, Rosagroleasing, RusHydro, Inter RAO, Zarubezhneft, Sheremetyevo, Rosselkhozbank, Rosagroleasing ALROSA. It was planned to sell 25% minus one share of Russian Railways, Transneft, 50% minus one share of the United Shipbuilding and United Aircraft Corporation. In October last year, it became clear that privatization was being postponed. The Agricultural Bank and Rosagroleasing were excluded from the privatization plan - they will turn into development institutions. By 2016, the state will sell only part of Aeroflot, Sheremetyevo, Zarubezhneft. But the plan included Rosspirtprom, Vnukovo Airport (possibly it will be merged with Sheremetyevo) and the State Transport Leasing Company (GTLK).
          "Now the state is extremely reluctant to follow the path of privatization, concentrating more on the path to creating "national champions" with a minority share of private capital, as, for example, this happens with Rosneft or Rostelecom
          ”, Says Irina Stupakova, an analyst with Solid Management Asset Management, noting that
          the largest banks and oil companies are concentrated in the hands of the state, which already controls more than half of the economy. Moreover, the state is expanding its expansion into the private sector, as evidenced by the purchase of TNK-BP and Tele2.
          “State-owned companies have become major players in the investment business and defense orders”,
          - says Stupakova.
          The government is tired of selling
          Gazeta.ru lamented. And the government itself is clearly "tired", it's time for him to retire in the London dal or Skolkovo nursery to play with iPhones.

      At first glance, the game, they have fun with nothing to do, but adult uncles are doing it, why should it? For example: we meet on the street near a cheap chip house surrounded by homeless people with plastic cups filled with a battered woman who was known as decent, our reaction is perplexity mixed with pity and squeamishness; the situation is different, we meet a man whom we knew as a homeless person always rummaging in garbage containers, in an expensive restaurant among people for whom this restaurant is an attribute of social status, our reaction is again bewilderment with the thought that we don’t know something, but squeamishness and pity in our perception is gone. They know how to influence the psyche in the West, the manipulations of public consciousness have been worked out and perfected to perfection. Recall that Bill Clinton didn’t give a damn to the world that Serbia was being hammered into the Stone Age, that the blood of people was flowing in a river, and that everyone in the USA was interested in one question, whether or not Bill Monica had it, if it had it, if it didn’t have why.

        Exactly! All these ratings, people of the hour, all bowls of the universe and other charts are, first of all, an application for the right to judge. That is, it does not matter that the protruding tongue of the stupid actress, covered with cracks from the fact that it is never pulled in by the teeth and is worn on the shoulder, "fights" with the work of our president. The main thing here is that we have an "authoritative jury" and we have the right to give marks! The only correct reaction would be to diligently turn all these "little men of the year" into associates of the "British scientists". Nothing but giggling in your spare moment can be given to them.

    The lieutenant of the Ministry of Internal Affairs will never become a general without bribes or patronage. The same situation is in all structures of law enforcement bodies and courts. That is, it is a well-established system. The same scheme
    began to be applied in power structures, including the sale of deputy seats. Corruption has become the country's ideology. To defeat it, one must start again with "Adam and Eve."

      Good morning everybody hi

      quote-Secondly, Putin himself, by and large, is a "fiasco" with the current 13 place should not worry much. There are many reasons for this, and the main reason is the need to intensify work within the country. If Putin really looks like a man in the international arena who is capable of literally turning the situation around and directing the course of events in, say, the right direction, then there are a lot of questions when leading domestic politics to the Russian president. One of the main issues is the strange lethargy in the fight against corruption. That is, the official struggle is, as it were, but at the same time it is waged by methods that do not bring the Russian State any benefits, not to mention the benefits for the Russian people.

      All the points I highlighted are absolutely correct.
      Let's start with the first, why should Vladimir Putin adapt to the reaction of the international community.
      The second point is about intensification within the country. There is no end to work. There is no need to build a break as they say. 90's mess is still to be raked and raked.
      Third, on the issue of combating corruption. I would call imitation. At the lower and middle levels of government, it’s a struggle, as it were, which can’t be said about the highest level of government. Some of the ministers or current ones were involved, if not criminal then at least to personal responsibility ?!
      But no one! So the principle of not giving up remains in force. You see mutual responsibility.

        I agree in many ways, but I will express the following thought (IMHO): But we do not know what is going on in V.V. Putin, and his further actions, perhaps what is happening now, is a deeply thought-out operation, the results of which we will see later. All the same, I don’t look at Putin - he stands his ground, albeit in a small way, but begins to pursue his own. soldier

    Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin was among the applicants for the title "Man of the Year" from Time magazine. In total, the magazine announces the names of 44 candidates for this title, which some users consider to be more than honorable, while others are just another PR props.


    I think that GDP is one of the worthy in the list. Drop your ambition and see what he specifically did to save the world. In my opinion - not a little.

    Why, terrorist, blew people up, let's make him the "Person of the Year", nothing is so normal, I understand, of course, that all this has long been frivolous and all this is being done for cattle, so that there is something to gossip about on the bench for seeds. By and large, we in Russia should be deeply indifferent to this. And even to look at the candidates, only Assad is more or less decent, for not surrendering the country, at least as long as he is holding on under the pressure of "democratization", and even then not himself , but because China looms behind its back, which does not need this "democratization" in any way, maybe the Pope, who, unlike Gundyaev, at least tries to portray modesty, although again this is all a stretch, I don't know how God (if there is one) generally looks at organizations called "Church" without a shudder and still hasn't set them off with fireballs from the sky. It's amazing how degraded the West has been over the past 50 years.

    Judging by the principle of rewarding (people acting for the good of the United States), Putin must take first place in terms of the totality of achievements in implementing the Dulles prana. Let me remind you that the Dulles plan emphasized the moral decay of the Russian people (instead of instilling in it public-private private-selfish values, instead of ideology, the cult of sex, money, pleasures at all costs, the spread of corruption, drug addiction, drunkenness, corruption of the Family, etc. d.). As we can see Putin (the successor of the Yeltsin’s case) achieved all these results ... We need to think, when the enemy awards the Leader of the nation, who is this leader? I do not think that Stalin was honored with the award of the Reich.

So, that all these ratings received in the West, this is complete bullshit. The scope of corruption in Russia has become the size of a national disaster. And our Kremlin leaders do not even lift a finger to curb bureaucratic lawlessness. What kind of person can this be?

      Putin calls Abramovich to himself:
      - I know, Roman Arkadievich, that you have made a great contribution to the development of our state. They raised metallurgy, the oil industry, the football industry, and helped the Chukchi people ... I want to award you with a cash prize. Here is the checkbook - now I’ll enter any amount you name. Well, so how?
      Abramovich is silent.
      - How many? Fifty? Hundred million?
      Abramovich hesitates awkwardly and sniffles.
      “DOES TWO FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS ENOUGH?”
      Abramovich sighs, and hesitates, saying:
      - Enough, Vladimir Vladimirovich ... Thank you very much, Vladimir Vladimirovich ...
      Putin smiles softly, writes the amount in the check, signs it, puts it in half and sticks it in his pocket in his Abramovich’s jacket. Then he gently takes him by the elbow - and calmly, but with meaning, he says:
      - But the rest should be returned, Roman Arkadievich ...

    Dear A. Volodin. As you rightly noted, the magazine determines the so-called person of the year by the number of references to him on their pages. If he made a conclusion on our press, then Putin would not have taken the first line either. Here Serdyukov and Vasilyeva lead by a wide margin. I do not agree that this is of little concern to Putin (all ambitious people love it when foreigners write a lot about them). But your thesis about unsuccessful attempts to transfer your international successes to domestic politics bothers me. Here I would like specifics. So far we see that his attempts to distort education and health care, having remade it according to the Western model, are quite successful. The introduction of new taxes (cadastral valuation of land, market value of housing) increase in energy tariffs, the cost of gasoline and railways Of course, our people are happy with transportation, but not all, but mainly members of one cooperative. You can certainly crackle in the media about defense, but this is if you forget the particulars. Well, for example, that the minister appointed by him, first destroyed the airfield network, and now, for our money, we are restoring it on a new one. The fight against corruption is generally a laugh through tears. I have the feeling that the Chekist warriors, going to meet the wishes of the leader in 37, were nevertheless immeasurably more literate than today. At least, the cases when a person deliberately issued a criminal order, would be held liable for negligence, careless crime, I do not know. (You won’t remember tears of piracy at all).
