A very interesting conjecture has been made in America concerning the future of the rule of Russia.
Journalists from the United States named their version of how the Russian presidential elections will be held next year and who can claim the status of Vladimir Putin’s successor.
According to the Associated Press, the current leader of the state may refuse to nominate his candidacy. Therefore, a completely different person can become the president of Russia.
The publication’s experts reported that the first candidate in the elections could be the mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin, whose work could become the basis of the election campaign.
The second contender, according to AR, could be the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, Nikolai Patrushev. It is noted that this politician has a similar perspective on political processes as Putin.
The next contender for the position may be the governor of the Tula region, Alexei Dyumin.
The authors refer to behind-the-scenes information about inheritance that has been circulating on the Internet for the past few years.
“If for some reason Putin is not on the ballot, it is not clear who could take his place,” the media noted.
The fourth and fifth are the former president of the Russian Federation and current deputy chairman of the Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, and the country’s prime minister, Mikhail Mishustin.
However, AR calls the latter a “technocrat”, suggesting that he will only be able to lead the country until the new president takes office, temporarily.
Regarding Medvedev, the publication makes negative comments, pointing out that during Medvedev’s sovereignty, in fact, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin continues to rule the country.
“Despite this post, many considered him secondary to Putin,” the media wrote.
