MOSCOW. Jan 12 (Russia News) — The issues raised in Vladimir Putin’s pre-election program are untimely, said Contemporary Development Institute Director Igor Yurgens.

In einer enttäuschten Reaktion wirft der Kremlberater Igor Jurgens Putin vor, das Thema verfehlt zu haben. Die Gesellschaft habe sich verändert. Zuletzt hatte Kremlchef Dmitri Medwedew gefordert, die Parteienregistrierung für mehr politische Pluralität zu vereinfachen. Putin aber rede, als ob es eine Insel der Stabilität gebe. «Wir dürfen jetzt nicht die Massen der Leute außer Acht lassen, die nach der Parlamentswahl auf die Straße gegangen sind», sagt Jurgens.

Nonostante ciò, l'ex presidente russo, dato in netto calo nei sondaggi, sembra aver imparato la lezione del 4 Dicembre, quando migliaia di persone protestarono in tutta la Russia contro i presunti brogli nelle elezioni legislative, ed aver assimilato i consigli di Igor Yurgens, politologo vicino al presidente Medvedev. «Non si può ignorare la massa di gente che dimostrava in piazza Balotnaja o in viale Sakharov» aveva affermato Yurgens.

“Elaborating on these issues in his platform would, in a way, mean he recognizes that the political system is in crisis. I think he perceives that as a bad bargaining position,” said Boris Makarenko, deputy director of the Center for Political Technologies. “In his view, that would have presented him as a weaker candidate.”

Putin doesn’t want to appear as if he is acting under pressure from below, Makarenko said, adding, “If and when he offers reforms, they will be a royal gift to the nation.”

Commenting on what is expected to be an event of great significance in the partnership between Russia and Germany, an expert with the Institute of Modern Development, Nikita Maslennikov, says: «The new fund which is due to appear soon is not the first initiative in the Russia-Germany economic dialogue. The point is that a fund to support small and middle banks, with a similar volume, was set up last year. Which means that the previously mentioned project is the logical continuation of Russia’s and Germany’s experience in this field. The support of small and middle entrepreneurship is the characteristic feature of the German economy.»
