Today’s political event No. 1 is, of course, the resignation of Sergei Ivanov, chief of staff to the President of the Russian Federation.
This is, without exaggeration, a tectonic shift inside the higher political elite of Russia, as Sergei Ivanov went hand in hand with Putin from childhood, so to speak.
Another is to evaluate the place where Ivanov, Putin moved. To steer the environment and transport. SVR officer. In my opinion is such kind of a slap in the face.
Did it play a role is idiotic (in my opinion) the trick Ivanov with the opening of the Board Mannerheim in Leningrad – God knows. I hope that played.
In any case, what happened should be a lesson for those of the Soviet period of our history seems to be a black hole.
Of course, we should not wear rose-colored glasses, looking at the type of domestic policy that Putin holds. Sorry, the Yeltsin center was opened not Ivanov and Svanidze.
But the fact of the resignation in the context of what was happening in St. Petersburg in recent months is remarkable and worthy of deep reflection.
