    Putin signs new 'May Decree’ spelling out Russia’s development goals to 2024

    The document sets several key goals, which the Russian government should achieve by 2024

    MOSCOW, May 7. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree setting the national development targets up to 2024, the Kremlin’s press-service said.

    Earlier in the day Putin was sworn into office for another six-year term at an inauguration ceremony in the Kremlin.

    By signing a major decree immediately after taking office Putin continued the tradition of eleven decrees of May 7, 2012, which identified the main tasks of the country’s socio-economic development for years to come.

    Russia should join the group of the world’s five largest economies by 2024, according to the Russian president’s decree on the country’s national goals and strategic development tasks.

    The document sets several goals, which the Russian government should achieve by 2024.

    One of the tasks says that "the Russian Federation should join the group of the world’s five largest economies, ensure economic growth rates above the world’s level while keeping macroeconomic stability, including inflation at no more than 4%".

    National projects


    The Russian government should develop or revise national projects in twelve areas, ranging from demography to international cooperation and export supports, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced.

    "The Russian Government in line with national goals is to develop (revise) in cooperation with government authorities of Russian constituencies and present national projects (programs) in the following areas by October 1, 2018 for consideration at the meeting of the Council under the Russian president for Strategic Development and Priority Projects: demography, healthcare, education, housing and urban environment, ecology, safe and quality motorways, labor productivity and employment support, science, digital economy, culture, small and medium enterprises and support of individual business initiative, international cooperation and export," the Decree reads.

    Digital economy


    The government should ensure growth of the share of costs for the digital economy development in Russia's GDP of at least 3-fold in 2024 compared to 2017, Vladimir Putin said.

    The targets to be achieved by the government in 2024 include increasing domestic expenditures for the development of the digital economy at the expense of all sources (by share in the country's gross domestic product) at least 3-fold compared to 2017.

    Putin also instructed to ensure "creating a stable and secure ICT infrastructure for high-speed transmission, processing and storage of large amounts of data accessible to all organizations and households."

    At the same time, state bodies, local governments and organizations in 2024 should use predominantly domestic software.

    By 2024, the government should also create a legal regulation system for the digital economy, based on a flexible approach in each sphere.

    The president also instructed to ensure information security on the basis of domestic technologies.

    According to the decree, in 2024, digital technologies and platform solutions should be implemented in the areas of public administration and provision of public services.

    Putin also urged to solve the problem of transforming priority sectors of the economy and the social sphere through the introduction of digital technologies and platform solutions.

    The program "Digital Economy of the Russian Federation", approved in the summer of 2017, was designed up to 2024 and consists of five areas: normative regulation, education, personnel, cybersecurity, formation of research competencies and IT infrastructure. Part of the activities envisaged by the documents are already being implemented.

    The Saker is in panic mode over Medvedev being PM again. Saying that the fifth column in Russia won.

    These guys seem to forget it was Medvedev that called for and demanded the campaign in Georgia. Medvedev's biggest issue was that he agreed to a no fly zone in Libya on pretext - something not to trust the US over. His method on the economy was not his fault either since Russia's economy was still transitioning. It was still too reliant on western banking system. I mean, that was something under Putin's era too. Hell, it was Medvedev that fired Kudrin.

    you say right things but def ears wont listen i am afraid Suspect Suspect Suspect
    BTW check my post about who was proposed by Medvedev with their background. It is in economy thread but should be be here. They read FT and claim whatever FT or random bloggers say is true, I wonder why.

    To me one is clear. Putin is very conservative as for policy (most of experiments end up in demonstrations and possibly blood shed). Next couple of years there will be huge effort similar to Stalin's industrialization plan. This must happen or will be no Russia. As in 41. Most of new people are those who are proven to have-things-done either infrastructure or agriculture or economy or military.

    The problem is that he keeps championing austerity, neoliberal reforms, etc. I also recall that Medvedev in stark contrast to Putin, received barely 1/10th the usual U.S. media demonization treatment when he was president, he was treated almost like he was Yeltsin. In U.S. political circles he was widely considered the "preferable" choice over Putin, so whether you agree or not, that's a huge knock against him, the U.S. media treated him with the kid-gloves. Medvedev had to be president, before the U.S. could agree to a fake 'reset', then followed the campaign with Georgia mirroring Yeltsin, where they had a 'reset', then followed by the Chechen war. A 'reset', followed by a war in the caucuses, it was so predictable, and he fell for it, yet another knock against him. He also acquiesced on the S-300's to Iran, and they launched the Syrian war right at the tail-end of his presidency, and who can forget Serdykov wanting Russia to be dependent on NATO based military suppliers for the modernization. Lets not pretend like the Siloviki in the background (cough, Putin, cough) weren't pushing him to be less soft when he was president. No amount of rehabilitation can remold Medvedev's neoliberal, pro-monetarist legacy, geo-politically and strategically naive tenure. Now all he does is verbally attack the rearmament budget, or attacking any civil engineering project.

    He's constantly saying how the rearmament needs drastic cuts, and some years back he was calling to end all construction on the Moscow to Kazan fast-rail line. He's been making these statements, you only just have go looking for them.

    Link please. Cause I don't seem to recall him saying to reduce it anymore than Putin does. Let us not forget, he was the one who wanted to initiate a rearmament plan because of the events after the Georgian war showed there was a lot of work to be done. And you need approval from the cabinet regarding of many positions. Putin would have had to agreed to those positions and people. Russia was trying to give as many olive branches as they could to the west to try to really reset things. Proved useless. It isn't what was needed for Russian politicians, but for its own people. And it worked. Plus they weren't looking to replace everything with western either. But things that they couldn't build simply because their industries were being corrupt and stupid at the time. Things are different now. And its not like Medvedev has 100% control of everything either, much like Putin. Medvedev actually showed more strength than Putin did with the whole Georgian campaign. Really actually, maybe Medvedev would have acted in Ukraine? Who knows.

    IMHO it is not Medvedev who takes ultimate decisions as in case of 08.08.08 war, Libya or S-300 to Iran. Always decision is made by Putin. And yea Medvedev is a bad cop in good / bad cop pair.

    perhaps because beyond your means is not possible in long term? Russia is nto going to attack anybody soon. Needs to be able to defend itself though. No money needed for defense beyond defense needs to be spent. Otherwise it is taken from health, infrastructure or R&D. Do you think that building Bagruzin, Avangard, Liders or CVN now makes difference for strategic balance? but for economy those trillion of rubles do make difference.

    And As for Kazan - Moscow line can you provide all context please?

    Saker knows his war stuff but he is also guy who rants about ''anglo-zionist empire'' 24/7.

    His military material is good and should be read but you can flush rest of it.

    Medvedev is alright. He is the guy who hit the pedal to the metal in Georgia (Putin was still en-route from Beijing)

    And if it was him who fired Kudrin then he just gained even more street cred in my eyes.

    And the Medvedev of today is much different than the guy ten years ago. His tone changed a lot since 2014.

    In the end he is just a good bureaucrat. Someone who manages the back office. In that regard he is quite good.

    Putin submits Kudrin’s candidacy for Accounts Chamber head to State Duma

    MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has submitted the candidacy of Alexei Kudrin, the Chief executive of the Center for Strategic Research (CSR), for the position of Russia’s Accounts Chamber head to the State Duma (lower house of parliament), the parliamentary press service said in a statement on Monday.

    "President Vladimir Putin has submitted Alexei Kudrin’s candidacy for the Account Chamber head to the State Duma," the statement reads.

    According to the press service, "at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) on Monday, the Duma Council will endorse the procedure for considering Kudrin’s appointment."

    In compliance with the Russian legislation, the State Duma Council earlier nominated four candidates representing each of the parliamentary factions. Alexei Kudrin was nominated by the United Russia party.

    According to the Law on the Accounts Chamber, candidates are nominated by the Duma Council and then the president chooses a candidate to submit to the parliament. Sources say that Duma members are likely to consider Kudrin’s candidacy on May 22 or 24.

    TASS

    Any inputs on why Putin is bringing back Kudrin the western puppet back to the government? Did Putin cave in to Western pressure? Putin is now a slave of the West?

    Brilliant move IMHO. Kudrin will have no influence on politics or how budget is allocated. His position is actually a chief auditor. The only thing he is good at Smile

    Bad cop to cut costs, follow money flows to make state apparatus lean ,cheaper and working. Russia needs to save billions yearly on spending schema. kick out like 30% of govt apparatus.
    Of course this would require unpopular moves that cannot be blamed to Putin. This will be on Kudrin and Medvedev.

    Though both will just do what Putin asks.

    And then many people were believing that article on the Finantial Times that appeared a couple of weeks ago, that a new position of a superminister would be created for Kudrin, so he could negotiate Russia's capitulation (giving back Crimea to the Ukraine, abandoning Donbass, withdrawing troops from Syria) in exchange of lifting sanctions...

    Nice theory, too bad that it has no empirical evidence to back it.   Where is this evidence that the sanctions on Russia are so painful that
    Russia will capitulate?   The sanctions are a Godsend.   They have destroyed the last vestiges of Yeltsin's distorted capitalism where Russia
    became an importer of food and various other vital goods.   Now it produces these products for itself on its own soil.   Please bring more
    sanctions.   If Russian companies are cut off from foreign banking completely we will see the CBR purged of Nabiullina and here monetarist
    companions.  

    Also, Russia does not depend on exports.   This is part of the "Russia is a single commodity banana republic" myth/propaganda being

    That is what he was getting at. That there were people even here who believed the article from FT that Kudrin was going to get a made up position that is beyond Medvedev.

    In the end, he gets offered the position of someone making sure money isn't siphoned off and the planned budget is monitored.

    So he really doesn't have much power at all. But I guess Putin had to keep him so he would shut up. He is still favored in Russian media for whatever reason.

    An interesting article about Khazin views. I must say this is similar to my views as for govt. He goes further and since he knows the staff.


    Hazin: the purses of Russia's liberals can start shaking very soon...

    Famous Russian economist and publicist Mikhail Khazin told on his personal website on the web what awaits the liberals of Russia in the coming years.

    The expert writes that the Liberals for 25 years had a serious advantage - they controlled the process of redistribution of property in the Russian Federation. However, in recent years, the liberals have weakened control and were forced to share their right. But the most significant event was the formation of a new government in Russia, as political leaders of the liberal level could not go to the governing bodies.

    Of course, not everyone left their posts. Prikhodko and other politicians remained. However, the circle of decisions taken by them has sharply narrowed. As a result, it turns out that the entire system of redistribution of property, which the liberals created over the years, "hung in the air." According to Khazin in the history of Russia there was a very important event that can be met rarely: a very influential group for a short time lost a significant part of its influence and capabilities. Now the consequences are interesting.

    Mikhail Khazin is sure that other Russian power groups, offended by the liberals, will begin to "pierce" the assets that were previously controlled by the liberal wing. Those who recently lost assets or are still under the pressure of raider seizures may try to appeal to representatives of other groups to conclude deals. And a significant number of such proposals will be perceived quite positively. 

    The economist suggested that in the near future a liberal team would be struck. They can deliberately form a "dirty business" in the spirit of liberals, thoroughly investigate it and show it to the general public. For example, such may be the case for attempts to raid the capture of the company "TogliattiAzot". The main owner of the company at the moment is outside the country, as criminal cases are brought against him. If the abuse of the liberal team is proven, then a whole series of similar cases will arise. And then the purses of the liberals will start shaking very soon and very much. The group will begin to lose money, assets and influence....

    No banana republic of course but every country needs to export to keep fixed costs down. Some like Germany or Japan, Korea mostly depend on export.
    Russian can of course survive without export only by internal resources but products might not be competitive outside.

    The good thing is that China alone as trading partner is enough to keep industry running on competitive level. Not to mention + India, Vietnam, Turkey and Iran

    If you consider all the massive bridge, canal and other construction in Russia, Putin can be excused for calling himself pontifax as did
    the Roman emperors who oversaw the building of much less than anything seen in Russia today. The Pope is also called the pontiff based on
    this Roman special title. Putin is not merely riding the Soviet wave or catabolizing the Soviet legacy. Modern Russian development
    is singular and beats anything from the 1930s and without all the human rights abuse and mass death.

    This is why the west is foaming at the mouth about Putin, the best Russian leader in the last 1000+ years. The west was all quiet back
    during the 1930s. It also praised Yeltsin the drunk comprador destroyer during the 1990s.

    Here are some points:

    1) the construction of ship building facilities capable of building ships not possible during the USSR era, e.g. the Zvezad yard in the far east.

    2) bridge projects such as the Kerch strait bridge, dozens of spectacular bridges across the country, the project to build the bridge over the
    Amur to China

    3) the new canal project to link the Caspian and the Black Sea; 1000 km shorter with over 3 times more capacity than the current canal
    links. The Russian navy in the Caspian will be linked to the Black Sea.

    4) the massive build up of the road infrastructure; highways where no roads existed. Opening of prime tourist regions (e.g. Sochi) to
    development

    And there is still a long way to go. If Putin can't find a credible replacement by the next election, he should run again. Token flipping of
    politicians is of no relevance to Russia. Putin has proven himself to be an incorruptible and super-competent leader.
