Who is Putin?
The beginning of the second millennium in the political history of Russia is inextricably linked with the name of its current President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, whose vivid political biography arouses the interest of scientists, journalists and the public. Attitudes toward a country's leader change in accordance with changes in socio-economic conditions and political moods in the state.
A detailed analysis of its activities leads to the emergence of many points of view. So, for example, the lectures of the Russian public and political figure General Konstantin Petrov on the concept of public safety have a resonance in the network. Who is Putin, the general says, justifying his position in detail and in detail with reference to well-known historical facts.
In a widespread course of lectures, the newest Russian history and specifically the events of the first decade of the two thousand years are analyzed by General Petrov who Putin is - the main question of this period, and it was he who was put in the title of the introductory lecture.
To begin with, let us examine what we generally know about the current President of Russia.The facts of Putin’s biography are described in detail and are freely available — there is no detailed description of them in the course of the lectures.
Separately, we recall that Putin graduated from Leningrad State University and was assigned to work in state security agencies for a career in the northern capital. From the mid-nineties, he began working in Moscow in various positions, including Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the President of the Russian Federation, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, after which he is appointed Director of the Federal Security Service, and later - the post of Secretary of the Russian Security Council. Having worked as the chairman of the government of the Russian Federation, he is appointed acting. President, after which he was elected President.
It is noteworthy that there are a number of versions of Putin’s coming to power - first of all, in the opinion of many journalists, terrorist acts, military conflicts and social instability right before the elections were beneficial to Putin, and, accordingly, suggestions were made about his involvement in organizing these events.
In addition, in the light of the accusations of corruption by the opposition made against Yeltsin in the late nineties,a slender version of Putin’s direct role in the “operation of the heir” is being built - a complex of events of the Luzhkov group to bring Putin to the presidency with the financial support of Berezovsky.
He supports this opinion as to who Putin is a video course of General Petrov’s lectures: considering the situation in the political arena of the post-Soviet space, the author draws many parallels with the revolution of 1917, which was beneficial for mafia groups - as well as the redistribution of power in Russia in the late twentieth century the initiative of the mafia clans of the time (one of which was headed by Luzhkov).
Analyzing possible options for the development of events of that period favorable for the mafia, the general comes to the conclusion that the best possible option for establishing political power was the attempt to introduce a certain type of fascism, because the Russian people unaccustomed to democracy inevitably need their own Benito Pinochet.
In accordance with the author’s proposed answer to the question “who Putin is,” he is not an active successor to Yeltsin, being a puppet in the hands of acting political forces.“Small, modest, gray, hardworking,” according to the general’s definition, he could become a “whipping boy” who would be blamed for all the problems in contemporary Russia so that he could be replaced by strong leaders, of course, from among the mafia. However, this scheme failed, and Putin entrenched himself in power, subsequently introducing his own political course and eliminating his rivals - including from the ranks of those who brought him to power. At the same time, General Petrov, in the conclusions of his introductory lecture, expresses the hope that the main problems of modern society, created and solved by globalizers at the expense of the peoples, will be realized and overcome, with the result that sooner or later a world state will be created - the Holy Congregational Just Russia.
Arguments about who Putin and Medvedev are can be heard in the lecture “COB without censorship”, where the general criticizes state policy directed against the people. In his opinion, at the moment two main principles of the development of the modern state are violated: the awareness of the people and the rationality of management. Speaking of ongoing national projects, the adoption of new laws and reforms,the author inevitably comes to the conclusion about their insufficiency, declarativeness, inefficiency, and also the irrationality of the existing management system. In his opinion, the “concept of injustice”, built on the lack of information of the people, the concentration of the national wealth in one's hands and the corruption of the authorities, is implemented in the governance of the country.
In general, General Petrov expresses his view of the political situation in Russia in simple and accessible language, offering recommendations for resolving the crisis by introducing the concept of public safety.
