Interestingly, on the same day it is reported that Vladimir Putin plans to make wide-ranging constituional reforms, specifically reducing the power the power of the President in favour of the Prime Minister (which was seen by some as a sign that term-limited Putin plans to take over Medvedev's position as prime minister in 2024 again):

Russia's new PM: Mikhail Mishustin, Director of the Federal Tax Service since 2010.

Kind of a weak, no-name bureaucrat figure.

Why doesnít he just abolish turn limits? The whole President to PM to President to PM again shuffle seems pretty unconvincing. Smaller players on the world stage have made more open power grabs before, so why canít Putin?


Maybe it's just Putin's way of trolling us. He does seem to like trolling people.
