Putin recreated the Soviet "power triangle"

Putin recreated the Soviet "power triangle"The latest personnel changes are designed to create a new balance between the Interior Ministry, the army and the FSB.


Russian President Vladimir Putin conducted a series of sensational changes in the Russian government.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Interior Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Nikolay Rogozhkin has been appointed the plenipotentiary representative of the Russian President in the Siberian Federal District. Lieutenant-General Sergey Melikov, commander of the Joint Group of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Caucasus, became the Presidential Plenipotentiary in the North Caucasus Military District.

At the same time, a ministry for the affairs of the North Caucasus was established. He was headed by the governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Lev Kuznetsov. And about. Viktor Tolokonsky, former presidential envoy to the Siberian Federal District, was appointed instead of the governor.

Here is such a personnel carousel.

It turns out that there was a sharp hardware weakening of Alexander Khloponin. He served as presidential envoy in the North Caucasus and deputy prime minister. Now he left only the post of Deputy Dmitry Medvedev.

Few have paid attention to an important hardware circumstance. Putin instantly dismissed Khloponin as a member of the Security Council. This post is usually attached to the plenipotentiary status. But Tolokonsky has so far maintained membership in the Security Council. Thus, Khloponin was severely curtailed in his rights, although, as reported, he will be in charge of the new ministry in the North Caucasus.

The main meaning of the current permutations is to strengthen the Ministry of Internal Affairs, whose representatives were immediately on the two most important plenipotentiary posts. But at the same time the strengthening of the Federal Guard Service, coming from which occupied important positions in the system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and beyond its borders, also occurs.

Viktor Zolotov became the Commander-in-Chief of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation with the rank of First Deputy Minister. Previously, he served as Chief of the Presidential Security Services (2000-2013) with the rank of FSO Deputy Director. In 2013, he was transferred to the post of Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Internal Troops of the MVD. Then there were rumors that he was prepared for the post of commander in chief. As you can see, the rumors were justified.

It should be borne in mind that the Internal Troops are the “second army”. The position of commander in chief is extremely influential. Moreover, as a person who has personal access to Putin, Zolotov should have a large degree of hardware autonomy.

After all, the Presidential Security Service is a structure directly responsible for protecting the head of state. There was a relationship of trust between its leader and the first person of the country.

Another person from the Presidential Security Service assumed the post of head of state’s affairs. Alexander Kolpakov, as reported, had previously led the “B” department of the Presidential Security Council. Little is known about his activities, although it is argued that he dealt with the issues of economic support for the head of state.

Former business manager Vladimir Kozhin has been moved to the position of presidential aide for military technical cooperation. Formally, this is a fall, as the Office of the President’s Affairs is a huge holding company controlling significant assets. Its founder is considered to be the legendary Pavel Borodin, a long-term “manager” under Yeltsin. Naturally, the manager has almost unlimited financial possibilities, and political autonomy due to its proximity to the head of state is great. So formally Kozhin weakened.

Another thing is if Putin wants to appoint him to some significant post, and the post of assistant here is just a “transfer station”. Let me remind you that Elvira Nabiullina, after being an assistant, became the chairman of the Central Bank, and Tatyana Golikova became the chairman of the Accounts Chamber. Then, perhaps, the current personnel decision will be happy for Kozhin. But so far this is not the case, since the power of an assistant very much depends on the favor of the head of state.

It seems that Vladimir Putin decided to strengthen federal power by people from his personal environment. After all, the employees of the Presidential Security Service, by the nature of their duties, are in very close contact with the head of state.

Theoretically, this could also mean a general strengthening of the FSO as a structure, if the information is correct that Major General Dmitry Mironov, appointed head of the anti-corruption department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, comes from the FSO. His predecessor was dismissed from service and taken into custody as a result of a high-profile case in which employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs tried to investigate the activities of one of the FSB officers. The result was the actual defeat of the anti-corruption department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the imprisonment of a number of its key employees. So Mironov's departmental affiliation would help determine whether the FSB won the final victory in the hardware war by “breaking through” its person on an important post, or Vladimir Putin decided to balance the influence of the FSB with the creation of a hardware FSO unit - the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

The Soviet system of checks and balances provided for the existence of a power "triangle": the Ministry of Defense - the Ministry of Internal Affairs - the KGB. With the arrival of Shoigu in the Ministry of Defense and the preservation of his influence in the Emergencies Ministry, the military intensified. Perhaps, it is time to strengthen the Ministry of Internal Affairs, for the influence of the FSB on the security forces at zero and at the beginning of the “tenths” was decisive.

      The question is who, whom he held by the throat. In USSR 9, the KGB department actually controlled party functionaries, not KGB functionaries. The USSR would have been safe if Andropov had stayed in power longer, but Gorbachev was not allowed to the throne. Although it is not known how it would all end then. The economy was at a rather steep peak.

    The FSB has long been simply on paper ... where are the guys real work? (now everyone will start screaming that it is being conducted and that this is classified information, etc.), And what does the Ministry of Internal Affairs work? I do not believe!!! if you don’t turn on the TV, the General stole millions there, then he took a bribe in the amount of my 5 year earnings ... now the police are not looking for anyone, now they’d just have paper (I know from reliable sources, since there are close cops who found work 20 years ago, and they made detection rates of 97,5% compared to 30-50% now).

      If we recall the structure of the KGB, then the FSB is the former 7th department of the KGB. Have you heard much about its activities? And from time to time and in Soviet times, leaders from the KGB were appointed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, this was only useful.

      I’ve been working at the Ministry of Internal Affairs for 20 years and I can say that 97% of cases are not real and they did it earlier by registering only solved crimes. Now, with all the nonsense that is going on in our country, they are afraid to engage in concealment and register everything. Another thing is that there are few search professionals, but mostly they bring up wallets who can only report.

      There is information that the State Department is preparing mass riots on May 18 with the participation of fan militant groups and radical extremists. And all this was prepared through the so-called. non-systemic opposition since last year. , when the process of separating Ukraine from Russia with a further focus on Moscow was launched. Once again, the murder of a young guy by an Uzbek in Pushkino was the cause of hysteria in the so-called. national liberal circles "down with the dictator", "Russia for the Russians", "the abolition of the 282nd" and the like. Although, in fact, the demands of the fans and the townspeople who supported them are the same as in Biryulyovo, to bring order to the market, to clean up illegal migrants and criminals, to dismiss the corrupt local police elite and the head of the administration. Now there is a mobilization of the fan movement, which really failed to be used in 2012 and which was part of the fighting groups of the Maidan in Kiev. Now it is important, before the comedy with the presidential elections in Neohazaria-Ukraine, to destabilize the situation in Russia by any means. The threat of violence, the intensification of the terrorist gang underground (people die every day in Dagestan, in one of the districts of Makhachkala, the CTO regime is introduced and there is no end in sight) for the West, given the current political moment. They are trying to launch a Ukrainian scenario in Russia, only this time without peysokreakl pedestrian walks and "marches of millions" according to a radical version, where the driving force will be zigging nationalists and fans in the forefront of national traitors from the fifth column, sponsored and led by national traitors in a large business and the "fifth column" in government structures. Perhaps few people believe in this given Putin's rating, but the authorities should not rest on their laurels. Upstairs they probably understand this because right by the way Based on the foregoing, there was a boorish trick of St. Petersburg fans (judging by the behavior of the performer looks like a hackneyed thing), which at the right time gives rise to a preventive sweeping of radical groups and easily manipulated thugs. However, all this is just an assumption, but there is no smoke without fire.

    As long as there is a need for consolidation of power, let there be a consolidation of power, although I would not say that I like the dominance of the siloviki. The fact that now we need a "strong hand" is more obvious than ever. In the end, in South Korea there was something similar in 70-80 years, when as soon as they did not stigmatize General Park Chong Hee, and "dictator" and "punisher" and all sorts of "swampy", in short, as soon as they did not name, but the general did his job, rigidly carried out political and economic reforms and now the South Caucasus is quite a prosperous state with a powerful shipbuilding, automotive and electronics industries, which is exactly what we now lack so much. The main thing is for the president to know exactly what he wants, not to constantly strengthen his personal power and strengthen the army indefinitely, otherwise North Korea will be forever stuck in a scoop in the worst sense of the word.

    Apparently, the President has reliable information about the West's desire to destabilize the situation in the country with the help of the "fifth column" and he is placing loyal, proven fighters in key positions in the security forces.

    THIS IS TO QUESTION ON MAY 18
    On May 18, another rally initiated by Gubarev is planned in Donetsk. According to him, a number of important decisions will be made at this rally. In particular, activists intend to “print the borders with Russia and get from military units deployed on the territory of the DPR, taking the oath to the people of the DPR or to leave our land”.

    “We will turn our civic appeal to Ukrainian border guards and customs checkpoints, military units on the territory of our republic. They must either immediately become subordinate to the authorities of the Donetsk People’s Republic, or leave their place of work or service and relocate to other regions. These requirements apply to all employees working on the Russian-Donetsk border, to airport and air navigation services employees, to Ukrainian military units, ”said Gubarev.

    The most important thing is that such rearrangements do not result in interagency squabbles. Since Soviet times, the Ministry of Internal Affairs has competed and put sticks in the wheels of the KGB in domestic activities. This was especially acute when the Ministry of Internal Affairs was headed by Nikolai Shchelokov and the KGB, Yuri Andropov. After the overthrow of Shchelokov, Andropov appointed his protege, the KGB general Fedorchuk, to the post of head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. His activities left a negative impression on the staff of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. So the big question is how favorable all the permutations will be.

    The main thing, whoever and wherever they are appointed, would be useful to the state of Russia. It is from these positions that all appointments should be considered.

    The rotation of the "top" managers is a very useful thing, especially if it is carried out every 3-4 years. then the "fouling" process takes place. You are doing the right thing, GDP. soldier
