    Gref called the main problem of Russia the lack of an effective public administration system

    The head of Sberbank believes that after solving it, all other problems will be solved automatically.

    on that level it is hard to disagree, but Id' prefer to her missing part. How he sees improving public administration?

    Russia has the disease of too many opinion makers endlessly claiming that it is far behind the "advanced countries". These
    morons and shysters should STFU. If Germany and the USA have superior public administration systems, then why can
    they not control massive corruption. By massive corruption I mean billions of taxpayer dollars wasted on projects that
    are not completed or completed with multi-year delays. Here are some examples:

    1) Berlin airport
    2) California high speed rail (the just need one line running along the coast)
    3) Labrador hydro-electric dam (years delayed and 1000% over budget: $1.5 billion initial cost now over $12 billion).

    "Backwards Russia" has not had a single such project in the last 20 years. I dare anyone to produce an example.
    Don't cite the Sochi Olympics. They cost $9 billion and made a profit. The $45 billion in infrastructure expenditures
    were massive and finished on time. Russia now has a Black Sea tourist paradise that is paying off the investment.
    If there was any corruption that mattered the projects would have been substantially developed. In fact, for $45 billion,
    California could have finished its high speed rail line.

    Actually Glazyev was saying similar stuff. I've read recently his column about "Amur Bridge" . Ill try to rind it for you. IMHO it is no about every, especially top tier, project but how daily life. If it worked then why many times Putin had to "manually " reverse stupid decisions or push for solutions? like local authorities dont exist.

    Transparency is the key. And secondary is what's to communicate between people and government.

    All projects must have transparency and be easily verified by average person. In doing so, if anything that raises eyebrows is seen, it can be easily reported. Putin isn't the end all be all. It's the people around him and many more. People who are upset at current issues that need to be addressed

    The major issue is that people like Gref, etc is that they are very ambiguous in their statements. They don't specify anything specific. What I specified is very specific and believe it or not, is being pushed right now by non other than Medvedev - creating online portals to each project that makes it easy to verify and watch.

    Must be done.

    Putin and his government have the job of being administrators. You make it sound like they do not. Where do people get off assuming that
    every municipal government in the USA and Canada is doing a good job at administrating? A lot of US municipalities are going bankrupt
    because they mismanaged their budgets. It is actually well known that the municipal level is the most corrupt. But bleaters in Russia
    try to hoodwink Russians into believing in some non-existent perfection in the west.

    Before understanding the size of anything, proper metrics need to be used. Gref is pulling the usual con job of avoiding any quantification
    of the problem and going for the emotional jugular. In spite of the stupid post above yours that just ignored the substance of my post,
    nobody, including Gref, has demonstrated any pathology in Russia that makes it inferior to the west. The existence of corruption proves
    diddley squat. Corruption is rampant in the west but the western MSM, pundits and politicians pretend everything smells like roses.
    So there is no "debate" in the west about inferiority and urgent need for "reforms". Instead, there is the assumption of normalcy and
    everything being OK.

    So before starting "reforms" that could destroy the achievements of the last 20 years, a factual and objective evaluation of problems
    needs to be carried out. Only then can we discuss solutions. Gref, Kudrin and the rest of the 5th columnists want to generate noise
    to induce knee-jerk solutions that will ultimately prove destructive to Russia's GDP.

    Also, corruption will never be eliminated. So there is an optimal response problem of sufficient legal enforcement and regulations and
    laws that minimize non-transparent activity. But trying to achieve zero corruption is chasing the asymptote to infinity. A self-defeating
    enterprise. So far Russia's record of large scale projects is substantially better than that of NATO. Instead of acting like the existence
    of corruption and corporate criminality in Russia proves Putin's government is a failure, we should establish the meaning of failure. I will
    not be herded by shyster 5th columnists and internet "authorities" until the demonstrate competence and objectivity, which they never
    will.

    After the layer of propaganda shit is removed, then we can get down to business of improving the current conditions.

    Bombshell Report: Pentagon Mismanaged $2.1 Billion In F-35 Stealth Jet Parts

    This is business as usual in the USA. Where are all the checks and balances and Congressional oversight? Why are
    corporate lobbyists setting the regulatory climate?

    It should be clear by now that there is nothing special about the west. It is composed of humans and not infallible gods.
    So no magic system will make it squeaky clean.

    hard to disagree, Vth column is trying to hijack discontent or trying to look for false roots cause Yet federal govt cannot and will not fix local roads, village medical practice, local school if needed repairs or recycling waste.

    it is not what I was saying. Im afraid we're talking about two different things. Nothing nowhere is perfect, the key here is that local issues cannot be sorted out on Putin's level. How many times German chancellor/French/US president or had to intervene in case of village schools, trash dump or that company w as not paying salary to people?

    Check Khazin, Glazyev, ithey're definitely not western vth column nor liberasts. Well Putin himself is working to improve this.

    Apparently one of Navalny Open Russia buddies had his office ransacked by the FSB and is facing major charges since Open Russia is on the banned NGO listing. So another foreign operative and a financial arm of Navalny arrested.

    Good.

    Wasn't that long ago there was a report that the pentagon couldn't find over 7 billion dollars worth of money that has just disappeared and cannot be accounted for...

    Was it during Bush or Clinton that a law was written that basically means the Pentagons budget does not have to add up or ever be audited... basically it does not have to balance its books and cannot be held to account if it is found to have lost money...

    Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation: the state should have the sovereign right to manage its information space


    - Russia is often accused of computer attacks on information resources of Western countries. Did it affect the results of voting in the UN?

    - There is a paradoxical situation. Russia in its resolution proposed to adopt the rules of responsible behavior of states in the information space, the implementation of which will allow excluding any destructive activity in the virtual sphere. But our opponents, mainly Western countries, without any evidence accusing us of the unlawful use of ICT, opposed the adoption of such rules.

    However, other states have demonstrated an understanding that the world community can no longer live without common rules for all, without mutual respect for sovereignty, without a guaranteed right to protect its own critical information infrastructure from external threats. Ignoring such demands, the technologically developed countries of the West are trying with all their might to push the practically unlimited possibilities that are beneficial for themselves to dictate their conditions to the states lagging behind in “digital” development.

    Understanding of these circumstances and the need to find solutions to these problems predetermined the support of Russian projects by the majority of the states of the world community, despite active opposition from the United States. By the way, it is Washington and its closest allies who are trying to hush up the very fact of the adoption of the mentioned resolutions and the results of voting on them.

    You should be aware that the adoption of resolution 73/27 "Advances in the field of information and telecommunications in the context of international security" was made by 119 countries, of which 32 became its co-authors. 46 states voted against, 14 abstained.

    94 countries supported the other Russian resolution 73/187 "Countering the use of information and communication technologies for criminal purposes", 36 were co-sponsors. 59 states voted against, and 33 abstained.

    These figures speak eloquently about the solidarity of the majority of states with the Russian approaches in the field of international information security and about supporting Russia's initiatives aimed at creating a peaceful, secure and stable information environment.

    Putin returning to the Soviet Union times..
    Now he signed a decree to censor "fake news"...  
    You can't critisize the government  or will be fined..  Laughing

    Putin is running backwards at the speed of light...
    what is so disgusting is how Russia government have been
    crying about censoring of social media on RT and now they doing
    the Same.. Laughing

    This is it.. the last straw the the midget idiot ..
    A massive giant protest of millions should be done to protest this repressive law..
    and Putin forced to resign .. for this treason..
    Freedom of expression is key for human development and society
    development and understanding..

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rKRzO8bGNU

    Now where are those who called Putin a "Genius".
    Putin is very weak President.. the idiot can't handle criticism
    Look how much Trump had to endure , with people openly calling
    him an Idiot.. and a moron.. Putin is not only incompetent
    but now officially a authoritarian moron , this will definitively damage
    the Image of Russia in the world.. among the developed nations..
    and the credibility of Russian media too.. when critisize American media..
    for censoring.. No
    This is exactly what Putin needed.. To run backwards and show how outdated
    is Russia government.. Laughing
    It should suck big time now for every journalist in RT to admit Putin
    is a dictator like President.. hopefully major protest will show up and the authoritarian
    President demanded to resign..

    Police filed a libel case on Rogozin’s claim

    https://ria.ru/20190320/1551972338.html

    MOSCOW, March 20 - RIA News. The head of "Roskosmos" Dmitry Rogozin filed a lawsuit statement with defamation, told RIA Novosti in the press service of the state corporation. In turn, a law enforcement source told the agency that the case had been initiated, they were being handled by the Moscow police.
    “Dmitry Rogozin has really filed an application with the law enforcement agencies for defamation and protection of honor and dignity,” said a representative of Roscosmos.

    According to the newspaper "Kommersant", Rogozin was made to filer complaint because of the publication of the resource" Compromising-Ural "with reference to the Agency"Ruspres". It claimed that the head of "Roscosmos" allegedly gave a bribe to the shareholder "Tape.ru "to Alexander Mamut and the chief editor Vladimir Todorov that those removed from the site lenta.ru material "Flight to nowhere".
    “A criminal case has been opened, a preliminary investigation is in progress, investigators are working,” a law enforcement source told RIA Novosti.


    ok if Rogozinave bribe then they won but otherwise it is just fucking fake. Let them try in US against Clinton Hitlery.

    New heads of regions left the same school

    There is not only an update, but also a rejuvenation of the regional leadership. 46-year-old Aleksey Teksler was appointed Acting Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region , the same number - Oleg Khorokhordin , who headed Altai. A 38-year-old Batu Hasikov has been appointed the new leader of Kalmykia with the rank of Acting . "I think that the desire and ability to achieve their goals, despite the difficulties, I come in handy," - said Hasikov in an interview with the newspaper VIEW.

    The three managers have a very diverse background. Khasikov is a famous athlete, six-time world champion in kickboxing and at the same time a public figure, a former senator from Kalmykia. Teksler is a specialist with extensive experience in metallurgy, worked at Norilsk Nickel, was the city manager of Norilsk, and by the time he was appointed acting governor, he was the first deputy head of the Ministry of Energy of Russia. Khorokhordin worked both in business and subsequently in the civil service, including at the federal level - in the administration of the presidential administration on domestic policy, in the government apparatus. Prior to the appointment of the acting head of Gorny Altai, he served as chairman of the non-profit partnership GLONASS and was deputy head of the secretariat, Vice-Premier Maxim Akimov.  

    At the same time, Teksler was a student of the first stream of the personnel management reserve development program on the basis of the Higher School of Public Administration (VSHGU) of the RANEPA, which was already dubbed the “school of governors”. Khorokhordin is a participant in the second stream of the same program. Khasikov studied in graduate school of the Academy of Civil Service.
    +++

    Dmitry Gusev, President of the Bakster-group consulting agency, commenting on the appointment of Alexey Teksler, said : “There is a Kremlin personnel policy, which is that people who have undergone various management practices — senior executives, legislative authorities, large corporations — are appointed to top government positions. . Texler is an example of such a manager. ”

    https://vz.ru/politics/2019/3/21/969296.html



    "There is a staff update of the governor's corps, this is quite a natural process. New leaders are emerging who are able to meet the challenges of a scientific and technological breakthrough. This is the digitization of the regional economy, this is the creation of new sectors of innovative development of regions, this is a social program that the President announced in his message to the Federal Assembly. At the same time, there are twelve national projects in which the whole country participates, and this requires new knowledge, new skills and regional management skills ", said Igor Morozov.

    Using utter BS arguments, some electoral commission in Sevastopol, Crimea, has denied access to the ballot box of a slew of
    small parties. As discussed in the video, this is some sort of sabotage under the roof of "not allowing marginal parties too
    much power". The same commission basically banned all the real anti-corruption parties and let even small parties associated
    with the corrupt elements access to the ballot box.

    This is the true face of democracy. Such tricks are routine in the US where 3rd party candidates are banned from ballot box
    access in various districts by corrupt Democrat-Republican dominated electoral committees. This is why real democracy requires
    the elected president to be essentially a "tyrant" and to deal with such rot. This rot does not naturally go away. In fact,
    over time it starts to fully dominate the system.

    I hope Putin "meddles" in this Crimean election to fix such brazen sabotage of people's choices.

    were banned had obtained the required number of signatures to participate but the rotten electoral commission lied that
    there were issues with these signature lists. These "fringe elements" actually did something very good for Crimea and
    that they agitated to remove corrupt technocrats ("technocrads"). These are real corruption fighters unlike the
    US-sponsored fraud Navalny and similar. Of course, you will not hear any crying in the NATO media over this brazen injustice.

    The local electoral committee is clearly in bed with the corrupt elements that are being driven out (slowly) and is
    not serving the interests of local voters and Russia. Putin needs to have the FSB deal with these clowns. That is
    why the FSB (and its analogue the FBI) exists.

    BTW, the rotten political culture of Ukraine is really messing up Crimea even today. Putin should appoint a special
    anti-corruption counsel for Crimea that would unroot rotten elements. But it looks like he is assuming that his party
    is going to clean things up. He is dead wrong. His party is actually happy to make deals with rotten local elements
    and support suppression of "radical parties".

    Yes, this is a huge issue for even in DNR and LNR. Former Ukrainian territory still suffers heavy corruption

    NATO Media in hysterical glee after some UR candidates lose elections in Moscow


    Russia's ruling party takes a hit in Moscow election

    Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny claimed a tactical victory in the elections, saying that United Russia had suffered a major setback.
    "It's clear that (the) Smart Voting (political strategy) worked," Navalny wrote. "Throughout the history of the MGD (Duma), the party in power has not lost so many districts. All well done. However, it's too early to relax."

    Meanwhile, NATO brags about SUCCESSFUL spying operations in Russia and how they outsmarted Russians by extracting their TOP spy from inside Russia. I suspect this SPY also works as an agitator that promotes civil disobedience movements across Russia with the aim of causing absolute chaos, anarchy and total destruction of the Russian state. I am disappointed that he got away. I wish he gets assassinated in the States, I dont care what methods are used, I just want him dead.


    US extracted top spy from inside Russia in 2017

    A US official said before the secret operation there was media speculation about the existence of such a covert source, and such coverage or public speculation poses risks to the safety of anyone a foreign government suspects may be involved. This official did not identify any public reporting to that effect at the time of this decision and CNN could not find any related reference in media reports.

    As usual, NATO companies are working hard to interfere with Russian elections. I demand that Russia impose stiff and crippling penalties on these companies, otherwise a slap at the wrist punishment will only encourage more election interference.


    Russia complains about Facebook and Google election ads

    The adverts were seen on social media and the web while local elections were under way in Russia this weekend.

    Facebook said Russia should talk to advertisers, who were responsible for complying with local laws.

    Google said it supported "responsible" political advertising that complied with Russian laws.

    Russia's communications watchdog Roskomnadzor said Google and Facebook had flouted its demand to ban political advertising while voting was under way across the country.

    "Such actions can be seen as interference in Russia's sovereign affairs and hindering the conduct of democratic elections in the Russian Federation," it said in a statement.

    Russian laws put strict limits on when political adverts can be run and demands they are not seen while elections are ongoing.

    In response, Facebook said it was up to advertisers to make sure their messages were sent out at appropriate times.

    In a statement given to Reuters, Google said any adverts had to "comply with local legislative demands including the laws on elections and voting rights and mandatory 'election silence' for any geographical areas where such advertising is oriented".

    The Roskomnadzor complaint comes soon after Russia rebuked Google for letting YouTube users share information about protests in the country.

    Regulators called on Google to remove the videos or face punishment.

    United Russia Party loses a lot of support in Sevastopol elections. Serves them right for squeezing out legitimate (patriotic) 3rd parties using dirty
    administrative tricks.
