Window on Eurasia: Under Putin, Bureaucrats are Strong but the Bureaucracy is Weak, Moscow Analyst Says

Paul Goble

Vienna, August 11 – During his ten years in power, Vladimir Putin has set up “a dictatorship not of the bureaucracy but of the individual bureaucrat,” thereby creating a dangerous situation in which the bureaucracy as a whole is weak but the individual bureaucrats feel themselves “little fuehrers” beyond anyone’s control, according to a Moscow analyst.
In an essay posted on today, Pavel Svyatenkov acknowledges that his conclusions may strike many as internally inconsistent because of course “the bureaucrat is part of the bureaucracy,” but this paradox reflect the particular approach Putin has adopted, one very different from his Soviet predecessors (
The Russian nationalist writer points out that it is absolutely true to say that “in the Soviet union, the nomenklatura governed,” but because officials could be removed or even killed by someone more powerful, individual “nomenklaturshchiks” were hardly “all-powerful.” Indeed, he continues, the system restrained ...

From Prime Minister To President And Back Again, Putin Marks A Decade In Power

by Robert Coalson

What a difference a decade makes.

Ten years ago this week, Russia was a collapsing state with a dying president and an economy on life support. Regional leaders were increasingly and openly adopting separatist policies, while a fractious Duma seemed to be in a state of perpetual gridlock. The country and the world barely noticed when President Boris Yeltsin -- on August 9, 1999 -- tapped the colorless and virtually unknown former KGB operative Vladimir Putin as his fifth prime minister in 18 months.

And Yeltsin didn't just pick the 46-year-old former head of the Federal Security Service (FSB) as his next prime minister. He went one step further -- telling the public he wanted the little-known Putin to succeed him as president of Russia. 

In Russia's personality-driven political system, it was a portentous declaration.

Outgoing Prime Minister Sergei Stepashin announced the decision to journalists.

"This morning I visited the president,” outgoing Prime Minister ...

Kadyrov tells about whom he worships and for whom he ready to give his life

Publication time: 9 August 2009, 13:21 

The apostate ringleader Kadyrov has once again publicly declared whom he is worshiping and for whom he is ready to give his life.


Kadyrov said that he wants it very much Putin to be president of Russian once again and that him to be rule for life.


"I want him to be president of Russia for life", Kadyrov told journalists.


"Putin is my idol. I love him. I respect him. I'd give my life for him. I owe my life to this man" Kadyrov said.


In the course of his statement the ringleader of apostates kicked Medvedev, publicly revealing an open secret that Medvedev is a temporary puppet, who solves nothing, who represents nothing and he was chosen by Putin's circle, and not by the Russian people: "Medvedev is a strong, wise, and proper politician", radio "Echo Moscow" quoted Kadyrov as saying.


"If he were any different he wouldn't have been elected by the ...

KC: Medvedev Threatens To Punish Georgia

Medvedev threatens to punish Georgia

Publication time: 8 August 2009, 17:57 

On 8 August at a ceremony to decorate the participants who took part in the aggression against Georgia, the formal ringleader of the Kremlin Medvedev said that in time "fair and severe punishment" will come to the Georgian leadership.


Thus, Medvedev expressed the long-standing desire of the Russian duumvirate to finish with the pro-Western authorities in Georgia and to settle scores personally with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, considered in Tbilisi.


Openly threatening Georgian authorities, Medvedev said that "he is not equating the current Georgian authorities with the people of Georgia", somehow having forgotten that the current authorities has been elected just by the people of Georgia in the elections, which unlike in Russia were more or less transparent.


Medvedev's threats perceived in Tbilisi as demonstrative confirmation of Moscow's plans to destroy Georgian statehood, to overthrow the power and to establish its own unlimited influence, not only in Georgia, but also throughout the whole Transcaucasia.


Meanwhile, in response to Medvedev's threats ...

TIMELINE: Vladimir Putin, from premier to president to premier

Fri Aug 7, 2009 9:53am EDT

(Reuters) - Vladimir Putin marks 10 years in power on Sunday.

Here are some of the key events since he first took office as prime minister in 1999:

August 9, 1999 - President Boris Yeltsin names Vladimir Putin, the hitherto low-profile head of the FSB security service, as his new prime minister and preferred successor. The fourth nominee in 17 months, few expected him to last.

September - More than 300 civilians die in apartment block blasts blamed on Chechen rebels in cities including Moscow. Critics say the bombings were the work of the government, designed to turn public opinion against Chechnya.

September 23 - Putin orders bombing raids against the Chechen capital Grozny followed by a full-scale land offensive. Within months Russian troops retake Chechnya and install a loyal administration. Putin's popularity rockets.

December 31, 1999 - Yeltsin announces his early resignation. Putin becomes acting president.

March 26, 2000 - Putin wins the presidential election with 53 ...
