Executive Shuffle In Russia: Is A Top-Down Revolution On The Way?

Anatoly Chubais (R)

On December 3rd, Sergei Kulikov was approved by the Russian Government as chairman of the board of Rusnano instead of Anatoly Chubais.

Chubais was removed from his post just a few days earlier. He is a notorious neo-liberal supporter, and he’s occupied a multitude of government positions over the years.

The Rosnano project under him was a financial black hole that produced scandals of corruption and misappropriation of funds.

Despite that, he almost immediately was appointed to another post by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Anatoly Chubais was appointed as the president’s special representative for relations with international organizations.

The corresponding decree was signed by Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin press service reported.

“To appoint Anatoly Borisovich Chubais as special representative of the President of the Russian Federation for relations with international organizations to achieve sustainable development goals,” read the document, which was published on the evening of December 4th.

At the time of publication, neither the presidential office nor the representative of Anatoly Chubais gave extended official comments on what exactly the ex-head of Rusnano will do in his new position.

Chubais has already engaged in negotiations with international organizations during his career. For example, in 1995-1996, he was the Russian Governor of the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

It is rather questionable that he still remains a part of the Russian government, and that the West views it as “nationalist”, “conservatist” and protective of the Russian population and its interests.

Regardless, looking into his appointment to the position can be seen as him being recognized as a representative and “manager” of the global neo-liberal elites that are present and pursuing their interests in Russia.

This, in itself, is a sort of arbitrary and veiled confirmation of the speculations that the Russian Federation lacks a uniform sovereignty and is, at least partially, controlled by Western-originating global forces.

Executive Shuffle In Russia: Is A Top-Down Revolution On The Way?

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The Russian Federation, partially, is under the control of the so-called “New Oppression” and that’s been going on since the collapse of the USSR.

Several figures were in the limelight during that entire time, they were given a platform and they kept moving forward, securing leadership and government positions through the years. These are mainly Anatoly Chubais and Alexei Kudrin.

After a while of this agenda moving forward, it was even deemed not worth to conceal, and these movements began happening out in the open. And it was done in a very simple manner, these global forces were simply rebranded as “global systemic international investors”, which are neither that global, nor that systemic.

They are simply represented by several massive funds, and an exquisitely narrow circle of ultimate beneficiaries, most of them with either Jewish or Anglo-Saxon roots.

It was argued that the activities of “global investors” are aimed not so much at their personal enrichment and strengthening of power, but at promoting the ideas of democracy and liberal values. In recent years, and even more so, in recent months, statements as these have caused laughter in any person who would stop and consider the reality of the situation. This has become increasingly apparent in the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Russia, there was a general unspoken rule that everybody knew what was taking place, but they acted as if there was nothing there. And that is no secret, it is quite apparent.

It could be that, with this very public removal of Chubais from his Rosnano position, and his appointment at a rather advisership role. It could be a way to see that this, until recently, behind-the-scenes partial control has now only got consulting and communication capabilities, and no executive power now. It could be that Russia would like to make it seem like the global forces’ control is waning.

Regardless, in the next two months, quite a few things will come as revelations to whether this is true or not. If Kudrin, Elvira Nabiullina, Sergey Sobyanin are removed from their posts, or shuffled to posts that appear to rather be placeholders than actual executive seats. This could mark the beginning of a top-down revolution that’s beginning in Russia.

One thing is certain, 2021 will be an exquisitely difficult year for Russia – either a revolution will take place, as mentioned above, or the existence of a unified state could potentially move from the theoretical field into practice.

What’s new about the idea that Putin is just Yeltsin without the booze, with better PR, and less tolerance for oligarchs who get interested in politics?

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

Pretty snarky, but quite on point still. A more effective, streamlined, polished version managing the same system and power bases.

JIMI JAMES

On the contary he revolutionised russia to be the world leading superpower in atomic,nuclear,supersonic,hypersonic,fairly taxed,housed,medicated,longest bridege both rail and vehicle in entire euro continent,debt free,most gold backed currecy on earth(factual) infact like i said you are just another low iq nocando dumbass bget off the frg sex change tabs insolence,either way the man is a great leader,fkoff septic!

Save it for your lice infested gayb ar where all you fake mates love the scent of sht!

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

Yeah “Jimi”. At least you found out that your keyboard can write without ALL CAPS. Talking about IQ. Now keep grasping at propaganda straws and instead of seeing both sides of the coin, that most ordinary Russians are able to see, patriotic Russians included.
Cheers Jimi. You can take your meds together with that pint you know..

seph

What exactly are you saying?
– Average Russian actually likes Putin. The loud minority of libtards and commie wannabe’s hate him. The rest of the normal Russians like him for obvious reasons.
– Russia has transitioned beyond the norm from 2000’s to now. Hence why its industrial production, manufacturing, agricultural production are all growing and still doing well even during this virus time. And faired quite a bit better than most other nations economically during this spell.
– the rebuilding of Russia has done wonders. There are quite a few videos all over sdelanounas.ru that have transition periods showing then and now of various towns and cities and how things are being rebuilt.
– Biggest project that has been a major success under Putin that failed under even Stalin was BAM. Look it up.

Unlike most of the people on this comment section, I actually pay attention to Russia’s economic and social development. I guess I got some benefits since I can read Russian.

Don’t believe me? Look at sdelanounas.ru

Way better than southfront. Southfront is usually tabloid tier in economics.

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

I guess you are new here. No shame in that, tabloid sadly fits SF. Though there were times you could actually find some good military analysis here.

If you want to know what i want to say, you could read my long comment i posted under the article, but it still would by far not be conclusive. I must have posted 100s of comments here on this topic over the years, but i actually have stopped commenting all together months ago because there are only a few people left here where it is possible to have a rational discussion, and wasting an hour or hours of my lifetime to write a compherensive analysis like i used to do, only to be trolled is nothing i see worth doing anymore. No offense.
I plan to start blogging and vlogging sometime next spring, and i will surely write on that topic. The topic surely is fascinating, multifaceted, and of major importance and implications.. Will post a link here when its time. If you are really interested, and not trolling, read my comment at the top of the comment section, if i find the time i can check my files if i have saved some old post or analysis on that topic and post it here.
Cheers.

farbat

chubais is from a line of traitors why is such a person in gov to begin with and this is why i dont trust russia

seph

Because, contrary to popular belief of Putin being a dictator, he cant just remove people like that.

There is a balance and Putin has to play his cards right. If he just starts removing these libtards left and right, he will piss off the wrong people and these dolts will be seen as “martyrs” for the liberals. While the liberals have very few followers in the nation, giving them ammunition to use may just get them more popularity. Especially for some people whom are very connected.

Giving him a role that is more or less like Kudrin’s current role, gives him less ability to screw Russia financially.

Fog of War

” , he will piss off the wrong people ”

Who are the wrong people ? Also, if this situation was in the US would the US intelligence and military apparatus be able to ” liquidate these ” wrong people ” if need be ?

farbat

you dont get the khinsteins out still? what a mistake!

JIMI JAMES

Listen up you finicky feminists,Stop trying to pretend your doing anyone a favour,you LOST!

farbat

khinsteins are obvious traitors get them out!

farbat

why is a guy who hates russia called a hero of russia?

Tommy Jensen

It could be because he is a double agent………………………………..LOL.

farbat

khinstein is a perfect example in my view

farbat

a double agent who is viewed as hero of russia

occupybacon

Some would say Snowden hates USA but he really doesn’t

Tommy Jensen

who are some?

occupybacon

The ones he exposed and their tentacles from msm

farbat

chubais is disgusting he is so evil he wants russia destroyed no matter how but how is that different from the khinsteins who want europe to subjugate russia and basically dry russian ressources empty for the europeans also these sobchaks or how these clowns are called are pretty much the same

farbat

its for me a great suprise that putin besides many problematic things he does is still not as obvious disgustingly treasonous towards russia as the whole gang of people are who today are considered as elites in russia

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

LOL, every damn time i wrote that Oligarchs are still in power in Russia, and Putin has not only some nationalistic but also many neo liberals, Oligarchs and western puppets in his circle, i get downvoted.
Good to see you people here are waking up to the muli faceted reality.
Putin was made by the Yeltsin clique, by Oligarchs. How could it be different?? They had the country under their control, and STILL HAVE.
It is not about what Putin truely wants. No one knows that. But the Neolibs, the Oligarchs still have the power centers in control. And until around Ukraine, Putin was relentlessly banking on working with the US as his favorite “partners”. Even though Clinton, Bush and then Obama time and time again did not hide this was never going to happen.
Only when forced with Ukraine, he tried to lean more on the nationalist/patriotic power centers like Military, MIC, Intelligence services, etc.
Putin has to walk a tightrope. The western propaganda of him being a head of state with total power are BS. He is dependent on the real power, the oligarchs and neolibs.
Only reason those Oligarchs still have those gov and state enterprises post. And people like Kudrin, Chubais are not put out of a job, but promoted, even though that the opposite of what the huge majority of Russians want.
And the reason why Putins economic neoliberal policys are being unchanged, even though they too are rejected by nearly all Russians, and even pushed Putins approval ratings into the cellar.
The neolibs and Oligarchs took the power with Yeltsin, and they never let it go. Nothing Putin or anyone could do, short of a revolution by the people.
Though again, Putin was a neoliberal, pro western himself as part of Yeltsins clique, and still is to some extent part of that circle, even though his western “partners” pushed him into the arms of the military patriots on some issues like foreign policy, and into the arms of China.
PS: Many transcripts of calls with forgein leaders and other sources of Putins first years as President are not declassified. Some are REALLY interesting..

Tommy Jensen

Lets be careful. Russia was in a weak situation after the 1990’s collapse. It takes time to build up cohesive forces up again.
We can only conclude that so far Putin and his professional staff did an excellent balancing work for Russia in a very difficult situation. Politics is the art of the possible.
As I see it, Kudrin and Chubais is still there because they benefit Russia in some or another way, “keep your enemy closer”.
The conclusion must be Russia is better off than anytime of the last 25 years yes?

farbat

you really dont get it

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

Types like him never do. They graps at the smallest straws even when reality hit them in their face.

farbat

chubais out means no person in who seeks to genocide russians atleast this is a small victory for russia

farbat

still there are the liberal kind of sellouts inside russia who i actually dislike more than the nazi chubais because they are much more slimy and there is plenty of them

farbat

aslong as the liberal sellouts have so much ressources they will produces plenty more liberal trash on their side

farbat

what i find suprising is that even the sellouts find chubais behavior to be much to heavy of a treason they themselves threw him out of office before still he could weasel his way in again into russian industry when he already messed up the economy before and showed how treasonous he actually is

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

Where do i say Russia is better of or not then 25 years ago in my post?
Regardless, i have said times and times before it is, but what has this todo with the anaylsis that i just posted??
He is not “keeping his enemys closer” but this partners he has worked with and gained his power with for 30 years.
All this is in open sources, you could read them yourself instead of to see everything only from one side.
Yes, Putin is a skilled statesmen, highly intelligent and talented. As i said countless times before. But he is not a saviour born again, and if you would just look at the majority opinion in Russia you could understand the not so bright sides of him.
But seeing Putin and the Russian system for what it is, good AND bad seems to be impossible for many here.
You are just like the western neolibs and anti-russian propagandist. Only they see only bad sides, and you see only good sides.
Both is far from reality.

farbat

i wonder about putin either he is a cannibalistic pedophile or not that is my view on the issue because if he is not than atleast i can trust him to work for russias interests but its hard to know with these people where they actually stand

farbat

my hope is that he wants to get rid of the disgusting “partners” of his and replace them with human beings

farbat

if putin can call merkel the cannibal a friend and not seek to get rid of that disgusting creature and her disgusting pupil kramp karrenbauer than i wonder about him to use one example

farbat

in germany i see what i have to think about putin because there it will become clear

JIMI JAMES

Putin is the best leader in the world this century,name me on better,well?
That’s my point too many finicky feminists and homosexuals not enough sack!
You don’t know Putin you think you do,like other purists of insolence (period)

I NEVER ARGUE WITH AN IDIOT,BUT LIE AND YOU WILL BE CAST TO HELL!

occupybacon

Russia’s best was before 2008 chrisis.

Harry Smith

I’d say before 2014. When oil prices were too high.

occupybacon

Also before 2014 the Russia-NATO relations started to warm up. In 2011 or 2012 it was a summit of secret services, somewhere in Europe, I don’t remember where, in the end all together, Americans, Europeans, Chinese and Russians declared that the main threat for the secret services comes from the Internet. Which IMO proves Russian state wants to be globalist, like the others.

Harry Smith

It just proves that everybody understands that there is no more USA hegemony. World powers have to define the rules everybody will play. I do not say that Russian elites doesn’t want to have a share in the great reset, but here in Russia, anti globalists elites are still exist.

occupybacon

What do you mean by anti globalist elite?

Harry Smith

The “enforcers” group in Russia. Same thing is in USA. Most of army men and police are Trump supporters.

occupybacon

Unforrunately the other part rules over the economy and mafia(including secret services) in both countries.

Harry Smith

So what? Doesn’t your country ruled by mafia too? The only difference your mafia subordinates to higher levels, while Russian and American are independent.

occupybacon

The other part – meaning the liberal oligarchs.

Harry Smith

Is situation in your country any better? LOL

occupybacon

No but in my countey the oligarchs don’t have such power as in Russia and they are over 90% from our ethnicity, not like your oligarchs. LOL.

Harry Smith

Your are not oligarchs but vassals. ;)

occupybacon

If I was oligarch I wouldn’t spend my precious time here, with the other vasals ;)

Harry Smith

It’s typo. Had to be “yours”

occupybacon

My countey doesn’t have natural resources so we don’t have oligarchs, just some minion millionaires, most corrupt, most from our ethnicity. Your oligarchs are from other nations. So Russians are a vasal nation.

Harry Smith

Here is another clue, Tommy. Most anti-Western forces are nostalgic for Soviet times. Many policemen and prosecutors are fans of Dzerzhinskiy and Stalin. And army officers as well. My friends from this social group very often send me funny pictures related with these 2 persons and their actions. While pro-Western forces do understand a lot in how economics works. I think these liberals are used by Kremlin to balance “the enforcers block”
PS the pictures are mostly related to 1937. The most bloodiest year when Stalin executed biggest number of people.

chubais and putin have alot in common and in fact medwedvew and putin are both basically pupils according to them of this sobchak who was a russian sellout and no different to gorbachev or jelzin or shevardnadze and what the sobchaks are up to today we see they became total liberal sellouts

JIMI JAMES

You got nothing on the truth,what is it really that you hate about orthodox heterosexuals whom are infact doers not pathedic ranting neo feminst tramps whom pretend to care about anyone else other than their fake bummychims of incests;
seems obvious to me,you degenerate pro incest poodles of soros are crying in rage,
which means more blessings to the statesman and russians long term,you lose gimp!

farbat

indeed the father of little ksenia sellout slut is basically the guy who unites putin and the sellouts

farbat

putin is a pupil of sobchak according to himself yet i wonder about how neo liberal he actually is after all his experiences with the west because either putin is a blood drinking child raping maniac or he isnt and therefore pretty much feels disgust for his so called “partners” but sure to me is that putin is surrounded by crazy sellouts who are utterly controlled from outside

occupybacon

They don’t even need to be controlled from outside as long they plunder Russian natural resources.

JIMI JAMES

Get your hand off it incest p00f!

Harry Smith

Pupil? Are Ukropistan psy ops are still using old Soviet Russian-English dictionaries? ROFL.

farbat

my hope is that putin isnt as evil as the rest

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

IMHO there is no “evil”. At least not pure evil. We all do have good and bad sides. Granted, some much more bad than good, but it always needs to be judged together.
He tries to balance on the tightrope.
Funny enough, the west has forced his dream of a partnership with his neoliberal partners to be impossible, and chased him into the arms of the stavka. And he his highly receptive to the russian popular sentiment (his neoliberal economic policy excluded, there he does only superficial changes and still pushed them through against the huge majority will of Russian, even though it made his approval ratings into a historic low”.
So excluding economy and austerity, he will do what the Russian popular sentiment is. That alone should be a sign to show, that it is unlikely he would act against major interests of Russian population (again, economy and austerity excluded).
We will see how long he will stay. He recently seemed to build up Kudrin as successor.. Now that will be a god damn shitshow, but we will see. I guess he will go sooner rather than later (meaning in the next 1-2 years already) or will stay until his death.
No one knows, but we will find out soon enough.

farbat

mass murdering child eating pedophile maniacs are in normal perception called evil

farbat

when i talk about evil i talk about the usual class of disgusting elites around the world

farbat

in america there were so many children under 10 raped eaten and murdered by a certain group of people that america created a law to cancel out law in their case so that they can get safely to their zionist hideout

farbat

near america there was a levite hideout on an island the story might be known to people considering that the epstein levite has kinda become famous by now and that hideout worked as a place where all the cannibalistic pedophile murderous behavior would go unnoticed infront of americas eyes supposedly

farbat

if you want to figure out what unites neo liberals and neo cons and all these disgusting elites its their hatred against children and innocence in general and bathing in blood they can have a good party together

JIMI JAMES

IQ of your shoesize:

occupybacon

Well, he was a polyglot business negotiator, all his equitances are from the oligarchy, he had to be accepted, if not even appointed by them.

ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ

There is the faction / Oligarchs of St. Petersburg, of which Putin is the authorized representative. And the faction / Oligarchs of Moscow, of the Jewish oligarchs, representing the international, multinational capital.
And they control every aspect of economic activity in Russia, except in the fossil fuel and arms industries.
This was provided for in the Kissinger-Brzezinski (Rockefellers-Rothschilds) agreement of Waldorf Astoria, when the issue of replacing Yeltsin arose

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

Nice infos, thanks! Will do some research on that later on. :)

JIMI JAMES

irrelevant,old news,no big deal,things are way more complex for kissinger too!

ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ

In July 1999, a meeting was held in New York at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, attended by outside the President of the United States. and high-ranking officials, the then Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov, Prime Minister Sergei Stapasin and Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who expressed different lines of policy on the problem of Russia.

The next day, the newspapers made it clear that Kissinger’s views prevailed and it was decided to hand over the presidency to then-FSB leader Putin. The remarkable thing is that at that time it did not seem strange to the Americans to decide who will become the president of Russia. A few days later, Putin became Prime Minister, and on the same day, an assassination attempt was made on Russian General Staff Chief Anatoly Kvassin, who was considered reactionary for ordering the deployment of 200 Russians without consulting Yeltsin and Ivanov. at Pristina airport in Kosovo, catching Americans asleep.

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

Thanks again, all the best!

DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

The transcripts of Putins calls with Clinton are now declassified, and they confirm of Putin asking for Clintons support before.. Clinton, who said himself, that Russian military leadership thought he could make Yeltsin “sell the Russian oil and riches for a few pieces of silver”. Clinton had Yelstin under control, Yeltsin had the oligarchic neoliberal system under control he created, and Putin, who was Yelstins political creature.
Interesting indeed.

JIMI JAMES

That was then,this is now,ever since putin oused soros and rottychilds (period)
If he didn’t,he would not be in the position to put that pro gorbachevs to the outer!
