Vladimir Med!
Medvedev’s first name still is Putin
24/07/2008

Analysts have claimed that Dmitry Medvedev, the new Russian President, seems to be now having his own policies moving away from Putin’s. As a start, he candidly accepted the two major problems of Russia, poverty and corruption. To add to that, he recently even acted to strengthen ties with EU. And the binding force of this new affinity is without doubt, the trade. Russia is the third largest trading partner of EU, which Medvedev wants to use to bring about a better and more congenial environment in the EU, which is West-dominated. Energy is another tool as Russia is the second largest producer of oil and gives one-fourth of EU’s imports. With most erstwhile Warsaw Pact nations trying to join EU, Medvedev presumably does not want to be left behind.

So is this the change that finally says Putin is a titular head? The premise is laughable. Medvedev has not only followed his predecessor’s rather stubborn foreign policy (involving Beijing, to try and form a buffer against Uncle Sam’s overwhelming supremacy), but he has even visited China and issued a joint statement against the US Anti-Missile Defence System. The world can go jump ship; Putin still rules solidly!
