Momentous events are taking place in Russia while I have been sleeping overnight.
Yesterday President Putin delivered his annual address to the Federal Assembly, which some are calling a State of the Nation address and part of which called for constitutional change. Since I have not had time to come to grips with the import of all of that I will not comment, nor on the government resignation that followed.
I am sure though, that this will all have been carefully worked out to be in Russia’s best interests. This is not, I would say, a crisis moment for Russian affairs but a planned method of strengthening the Russian position.
All will become clear soon, I’m sure.
Can 2020 get any more exciting? I’m sure it will.
