>>16434>Well, another six years. Who knows what will it be like.
Peskov (Putin's press secretary) said that it will be "new Putin". Putin also promised that Russia will be in top world economics in 2024, although he promised this many times in past with different dates. But I'm sure that new Putin will do it.>The first webm... I didn't really recoginze anything in that.
It is Куклы (Dolls) - satirical political show from late 90s. I guess today many of characters are already unknown even in Russia.
00:20 - Yeltsin with baby Putin
01:05 - Berezovsky as mosquito
02:15 - Alexandr Voloshin, head of presidential administration in 99-2003. It is influential position in Russia. Now he is unknown and doesn't engage in politics much.
02:19 - Evgeny Primakov, former minister of external affairs, prime minister and leader of biggest political coalition in late 90s. Also an old Soviet guy. Everyone though that he and Luzhkov (Moscow mayor) will rule country in 2000. Died in 2015.
02:45 - Anatoly Chubais, reformer and government official on Yeltsin government in 90s, person who invented privatization, person who was (and is) hated by literally everyone in this country. Now sit quietly as director of some nanotechnology government corporation that do nothing and eats money.
02:49 - Grigory Yavlinsky, politician from liberal-democratic wing (liberal in Russian terms, not western), leader of "Yabloko" (apple) party, multiple times presidential candidate (I've posted his video in election thread in past). He is active but unrelevant today.
02:57 - Couldn't recognize this guy easily. Googled - it is Kirienko, former prime minister, reformer, scientologist (yeah) and (now) leader of Russian state nuclear company (Rosatom).
03:09 - Stepashin, another prime minister. In late 90s there were 4 new ministers in a row, "young reformers". Putin was last one.
On 03:13 it is full of people, Luzhkov is recognizable second left.
03:53 - Shaimiev on the left, president of Tatarstan for almost 20 years. Powerful person in that times.
05:04 - Zhirinovsky
There were also Zuganov and some more people, but I'm too lazy.
