Presidential Putin's main tasks: The National Agenda for Russia
Valadamir Putin's rise back to the Presidency in the Russian Federation looks like corruption to me. That President Dimitri Menyedev was basically just keeping the seat warm for. Valadamir Putin when Mr Putin was Prime Minister because under the RF Constitution, the President is Term Limited. And has to leave office after eight years but then can come back to power after sitting out one term. Which is exactly what happened here, President Menyedev was President from 2007 until now after being Prime Minister and then switched roles with Mr Putin. And now they are switching job titles back, the President being the Head of State in Russia. And the Prime Minister being the Head of Government. The President the Chief Executive and the Prime Minister the Chief Operating Officer. It looks very similar to what happened in Alabama in I believe 1966. When then GOV George Wallace was Term Limited and then got his wife of all people to run for Governor. And then after four years George Wallace ran to get the Governorship back. This doesn't look different from what happens in Authoritarian Regimes in the Middle East. Where a President or Monarch there before he's ready to step down from power, passes their job down to a relative. Normally a son like what President Hosni Mubarak tried to do in Egypt by passing the Presidency down to his son.
President Mubarak basically sparked the Democratic Revolution that brought and end to his regime. And is one of the things that led to the Democratic Revolution there. Because it looked exactly of corruption which is almost exactly what's going on in Russia right now. President Putin never had any attention of stepping down from power in Russia and to some extent can't blame him. Its a great job and your President of a great country with a great population with a lot of Natural Resources in the largest country in the World physically. My point being is that he should earn reelection there with free and fair open Multi Party General Elections there. And earn the votes of the Russian People in Russia in order to be President of the Russian Federation. I believe President Putin is a talented and very intelligent Leader that wants to restore the greatness to Russia. Not only as a Military Power but as an Economic Power like in the United States, European Union, Japan and the Peoples Republic of China. And what they are moving to, he just doesn't want to be held accountable for what he does.
Going forward with the next Putin Administration in Russia, they've come a long way in twenty years but still have a long way to go. To become a real Developed Nation, Russia is so damn big. Basically the size of a large continent as well as country of 150M people with a large Middle Class and Educated Class. With also perhaps the most Natural Resources in the World and not just oil and Natural Gas but minerals as well. But a lot of Russia is still very poor similar to China, India and Brazil and they have a long way to go to fully develop their country. They need a lot of Infrastructure Investment as well as developing a Health Care System that can take care of the whole country. Russia has lost something like 10M people in population because they have a Third World Health Care System. So they need to develop that as well as their roads, highways, buildings, waterways, airports and other things. As well as cut down on crime and corruption and then they can become a true Developed Nations.
What's going on Russia right now with its two Presidents to me looks like one dictator passing the torch to another. But at least Russia will have a dictator that will actually use Russia's vast resources to develop its country. Where most of the country can benefit from, instead of using those resources to just stay in power. And Russia could look more like China but freer then Iran.
