Economic, industrial, and energy policies[edit]

Under Putin, the economic environment of Russia has changed, partly due to the attempted radical market-oriented reforms characterized as "shock therapy (economics)" under Yeltsin, to a State monopoly capitalism (stamocap) economy, where the state (under Putin), controls all major industries and the overall economy.

State monopoly capitalism (stamocap) theory, also referred to as crony capitalism, refers to an environment where the state intervenes in the economy under an autocrat, or authoritarian dictator, to protect large monopolistic or oligopolistic businesses from competition by smaller firms.

Citation[edit]

Acting Presidency (1999–2000)

On 31 December 1999, Yeltsin unexpectedly resigned and, according to the Constitution of Russia, Putin became Acting President of the Russian Federation. On assuming this role, Putin went on a previously scheduled visit to Russian troops in Chechnya.[citation needed]

Here is the citation for the citation needed section above http://www.rferl.org/content/article/1093548.html As I have no intention of making an account for anyone who would like to fix this here is the citation.


The first Presidential Decree that Putin signed, on 31 December 1999, was titled "On guarantees for former president of the Russian Federation and members of his family".[64][65] This ensured that "corruption charges against the outgoing President and his relatives" would not be pursued.[66] Later, on 12 February 2001, Putin signed a similar federal law which replaced the decree of 1999. While his opponents had been preparing for an election in June 2000, Yeltsin's resignation resulted in the Presidential elections being held within three months, on 26 March 2000; Putin won in the first round with 53% of the vote.[67] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.209.222.30 (talk) 18:26, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Corruption[edit]

Hi, we need a full section on Putin's confirmed and alleged corruption, including murders, embezzlement, intimidation, jailing, etc. There are many books and articles noting this activity, so it should not be hard to find information and notable citations. Thanks IQ125 (talk) 09:18, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

It's always best to take the lead and then request help than to come begging. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.103.223.51 (talk) 19:58, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 August 2015[edit]

It seems really strange to me that in the 'image' section someone managed to suggest that the creation of a Christmas Fair painting that went on chrarity auction coincided with a Russian-European gas crisis in 2009; it has nothing to do with the subject or the preceding sentence and seems to suggest correlation between the painting and a bunch of people being without gas in the dead of winter. I suggest that sentence either be removed or moved to a more relevant section. Christmas Fairs and Christmas Fair paintings, whatever else they are, have nothing at all to do with politics or gas disputes, and gas disputes have nothing to do with a section about Putin's image. This would mean (please) striking the sentence preceding [260] and its cite from the following paragraph, starting with 'The creation of the painting coincided...':

"Putin's painting "Узор на заиндевевшем окне" (A Pattern on a Hoarfrost-Encrusted Window), which he had painted during the Christmas Fair on 26 December 2008, became the top lot at the charity auction in Saint Petersburg and sold for 37 million rubles.[349] The creation of the painting coincided with the 2009 Russia–Ukraine gas dispute, which left a number of European states without Russian gas amid January frosts.[260]"

... thus leaving us with the edited section reading:

"Putin's painting "Узор на заиндевевшем окне" (A Pattern on a Hoarfrost-Encrusted Window), which he had painted during the Christmas Fair on 26 December 2008, became the top lot at the charity auction in Saint Petersburg and sold for 37 million rubles.[349]" 178.148.59.81 (talk) 00:32, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
