Will Putinism survive death of its founder Putin?

Publication time: 28 February 2012, 18:42

The Guardian devoted a whole page to political portrait of Putin in an article entitled "Will Putinism see the end of Putin?"

 

If Putin will be elected in the first round, writes the Guardian, based on the opinion of many Russian analysts, this could be his last presidential term.

 

But it was not in the original script. Vain Putin sees himself as a man, who "had pulled Russia back from the brink of collapse". Obsessed person has the "mission". It is to restore Russia to what he saw as its rightful place in the world, one which was not just deserved but ordained - needed him to stay in power for at least another two terms.

 

Not anyone else, just him, Putin.

 

Further, article describes the biography of a criminal - as Putin joined the KGB, lived in Germany and then came back and became assistant to St. Petersburg Mayor Sobchak.

 

"Until 1996, Putin was a virtual unknown", writes Guardian. It was the year when he was in the Kremlin.

 

"This was the suitcase full of secrets Putin needed. It did not just contain the oligarchs' original sins - where the skeletons were hidden, the corruption, the bribes - but also the financial information that any corporation, even a squeaky clean one, would spend millions of pounds to protect", the newspaper said.

 

The astronomical sums of money involved may have been new to Putin, but the method he used to dominate this small group of commercial princelings was not.

 

Guardian quotes an analyst Clifford Gaddy from Brooking Institution: "Don't destroy your enemies. Manipulate them and use them for your own goals".

 

"Putin figured out that the only way he could control the oligarchs to guarantee their loyalty, or at least ensure they did not act against him, was to have some threat hanging over them, something he knew about their activity that would ruin them and their businesses if it were to be exposed".

 

Fiona Hill, director of the Centre on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution pointed out that in 1996 Boris Yeltsin had complained that Russian history had known monarchism, totalitarianism, perestroika and finally democratic development. Each period, Yeltsin said had its own ideology, but contemporary Russia had none.

 

Hill said: "What Putin gave us in 2000 was Putinism. What made it different from what we had before was that it had someone's name attached. Totalitarianism was sometimes called Stalinism but not always. Perestroika was never called Gorbachevism. But Putinism (first this term was coined by the Kavkaz Center, but it's politically incorrect for sovietologists to recognize the authorship of the term - KC) was invented as the answer to Yeltsin's question.

 

Central idea for the state can't be that (notorious "national idea" in the absence in Russia of the nation - KC). It has to be beyond one person. That's the history of Russia, the quest for a national idea that stands beyond one person (this idea exists in Russia initially, it is Satanism, but the term is politically incorrect, especially in an age of materialism. "Russia satanic", a few years ago noticed this age-old Russian national idea Limonov - KC)", writes the newspaper.

 

Thus, the newspaper concludes, Putin has created a personalized state.

 

During the third and last presidential term, Putin will have to answer two questions: how to separate himself from the "dead hand" of his environment and how to separate himself from Putinism.

 

And whether Russia will peacefully separate from it?, asks the newspaper.
