ArmInfo.The resignation of the Russian government will not lead to significant changes in Russia. A similar opinion was expressed to ArmInfo by the head of Analytical Centre on Globalization and Regional Cooperation Stepan Grigoryan.
Dmitry Medvedev, at a government meeting on January 15 in the presence of President Putin, announced the resignation of his cabinet. Putin thanked the former Cabinet for its work, announcing his intention to appoint Medvedev his deputy in the Russian Security Council. The fate of the remaining members of the government is not reported.
"The system of government in Russia remains presidential. And Vladimir Putin remains the president. In this light, I do not expect any real changes. Moreover, not only the change of government, but the change of the State Duma as well will not result in any real change. By and large, in Russia all decisions still taken by one person, "he said.
According to the political scientist's forecasts, under such conditions, a change of government can lead only to insignificant changes exclusively in the domestic political, social and economic situation in the country. Grigoryan is convinced that Russia's foreign policy will remain unchanged. First of all due to the fact that it is headed and accordingly, determined by the President of the Russian Federation.
"In my opinion, the change of government is caused by complex socio-economic situation in Russia. It is no secret that Russian society is not only dissatisfied with the government, but also personally with the president. In this light, I believe that Putin simply sacrifices the government for public discontent. Someone has to be blamed for miscalculations and mistakes in domestic politics, " Grigoryan concluded.
