  • In a dramatic shake-up of Russia's government, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his entire cabinet abruptly stepped down. This came just hours after President Vladimir Putin's state of the nation address, in which he proposed changes to the country's constitution that would allow him to extend his grip on power after his term in office is supposed to end in 2024.

  • KingChapulín37 & Mario Darpenne

    You know how the drunk president Boris Yeltsin made the Russian Constitution of 1993. Well he essentially gained powers to the president and the constitution stated that the president had the power to select ministers in the cabinet of the Prime Minister and the Prime Minister was elected by the president. Putin basically wants to end that practice. Putin wants to create a parliamentary republic boosting powers to the parliament and prime minister. He also wants to create a post Putin era after he leaves office. Don’t believe in the western media. many “experts” aren’t even experts. He’s going to leave office so no other person has that much power anymore.
    He is worried about his health so that’s another reason he will leave office.

    It is not that Russian people who want more of Putin but that he, like his African counterparts, are besotted by power. Putin cannot see himself as an ordinary citizen. Russia awaits another Gorbachov who needs to place Russia back into the league of nations. Asia, Europe, the Americas, have embraced the idea of introducing new thinking, Putin has a grander design. According to some observers and readers(here below) it is a good thing. It is like wishing Russia bad luck . There are many competent people in Russia, Putin has nipped the emergence of a good leadership core in the butt. In this what many readers want. How sad!

    He is really unbelievable that he stays in power so long and he wants a position with power even after his term ends. More surprising is that he can silence his oppositions and control the government without a strong challenge to his power. Someone has to study this and figure out how this is possible.

    It would be the biggest mistake of Vladimir Putin to step aside. Russia is not made to be led by presidents, look at the USA, devided and going from bad to worse, Bush, Obama, Trump. Vladimir Putin should become the Tsar of Russia. Only then Russia will survive another Century. I only advice Vladimir Putin to take a bigger Advicing Councel next to him and ask them more often for their advices even if it would contradict the one of the Tsar of Russia.

    Gog of Magog in the Ezekiël 38 & 39 invasion of Israël is about Russia. Gog is in Hebrew identified as a political person in power of the army with more power than the presidency. This is needed in the fulfillment of this Bible prophecy. A 2700 +/- year old prophecy which is so accurate unfolding in front of our eyes. Absolute truth the Bible is the very Word of God! Hallelujah!

    DW, you know well why he's doing this and that it had nothing to do with him being president for life. You people are spreading false narratives to serve Evil agenda. Well aware of the ignorance and the narrow-minded of most people in the west, who's gonna believe your lies.
    For all of you he is doing this to make sure that we in the west and our master AmerisraHell are incappable of putting a vassals at the head of office and into most positions of importance in his Motherland, to make sure that those in power serve only Russia interest ( NO DUAL NATIONALITIES). Because with our Demoncrazy, we want to install AmerisraHell power in their land, to steal the wealth and resources of the Russians, also privatize things in way to make everything of importance in the hand of westerners (mostly amerisraHell foreigners).
    Children's of liars, of iniquity, with no truth/ Souls inside our material flesh, that's what most of us in the west are, and the River of Fire was made mostly for "EUROPEANS " that's where most of our FORFATHERS/ HERO'S went at the end.
    In the West the love of the wealth/ resources of others, greed and self exaltation is the RELIGION.

    So what if Putin got assassinated right now? How would that play out as far as leadership goes? Would the pm take the presidency or would there be a rushed election? With the government resigning is he too important?

    Think about it. He could have just removed his term limit. The reason he is doing it in this complicated way isn't to fool others into thinking it's a democracy. He is a smart man. No he is doing this to ensure that after he dies, Russia government with its various positions will return to how it should have been with no one man having ultimate power.

  • Index Clone
    Index Clone 2 months ago

    The real reason he is doing this is to make sure should something happen to him as the president (dictator position) Russia doesn't collapse like Soviet Union. He's giving back some of the power he took and returning that back to the prime minister position. But, very important to note, this system is in place for others only in case Putin dies. As for himself, he'll be the shadow figure guiding the politics between the next president and prime minister from the back ground while he is alive. If anyone of you have ever been a guild leader in a game, you can understand this move. It's done when the founder wants to take a vacation, but still retain power and ensure that the guild always has an active leader in case the founder quits the game etc. So the founder places a croonie puppet leader in name only. And is it a coincidence that this happened after Soleimani's death whom Russian's criticized the US for? No, Putin just realised how powerless we all are against death and something unexpected could happen to him and currently the whole system is centered not around a position of power, but a single man and that the system can collapse at any point. So he had to do it this way. Xi on the other hand took the approach of writing himself personally into the constitution. But he also abolished the term limit, so while he doesn't care what happens when he dies, Putin on the other hand doesn't want the next guy to have as much power as he has right now. So he is preparing.

      Vladimir Putin is a mastermind!
      Tactically: Russia is ahead of every other leading nation by at least 25 years, in defensive and counterpart strategy.
      Modernism: Putin knows his weaknesses. This new government in place will take Russia to a modern era for the generations to come. Putin is from a medieval era, so a more contemporary face, can only deliver this modernism movement.

    Angela Merkel is in charge of Germany for 15+ years. I guess she is a good puppet for US not to be overthrown.
    There is a distinct group of hardliners in Russia who doesn't like Putin because they want STALIN back. Putin is too liberal for them.
    Is that the opposition that America wants to see so much?
