Forecast: The resignation of the government will not lead to  significant changes in Russia

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.
