Publicité

Vladimir Vladimirovitch Poutine , né le 7 octobre 1952 à Léningrad, aujourd'hui Saint-Pétersbourg, est un homme d'État russe, président du gouvernement de 1999 à 2000 et de 2008 à 2012, et président de la Fédération de Russie, par intérim de 1999 à 2000, puis en titre de 2000 à 2008 et depuis 2012.

Membre du KGB, principal service de renseignement de l'URSS post-stalinienne, il commence sa carrière politique à la mairie de Saint-Pétersbourg, puis devient l'un des plus proches conseillers du président Boris Eltsine, qui fera de lui le directeur du Service fédéral de sécurité en 1998, puis le président du gouvernement de la Russie l'année suivante.

À partir du 31 décembre 1999, à la suite de la démission d'Eltsine, il assure les fonctions de président de la Fédération de Russie par intérim. Il devient président de plein exercice le 7 mai 2000, après avoir remporté l'élection présidentielle dès le premier tour, dans des conditions polémiques. Confortablement réélu en 2004, il mène une grande politique de réformes marquée par un redressement de l'économie nationale et une politique institutionnelle tournée vers une concentration des pouvoirs présidentiels.

En 2008, la Constitution lui interdisant de concourir pour un troisième mandat consécutif, il soutient la candidature de Dmitri Medvedev à la présidence. Une fois élu, celui-ci le nomme président du gouvernement. Dans la foulée, Vladimir Poutine prend la direction du parti Russie unie. Régulièrement critiqué en Occident pour l'aspect autoritaire de sa gouvernance, il est pour la première fois significativement contesté à la suite des élections législatives de 2011.

Il se porte candidat à l'élection présidentielle de 2012, bénéficiant à cette occasion du soutien du président sortant, Medvedev. Le 7 mai 2012, Vladimir Poutine retrouve la fonction de président de la Fédération de Russie après sa victoire au premier tour de scrutin, pour un mandat allongé de deux ans, courant jusqu'en 2018.

„We will find them anywhere on the planet and punish them. Our Air Force’s military work in Syria must not simply be continued. It must be intensified in such a way that the criminals understand that vengeance is inevitable.“

2015-11-17, vowing to retaliate against the Islamic militants responsible for the destruction of a Russian airliner over the Sinai on October 31, 2015. http://www.tribuneindia.com/news/nation/russians-up-strikes-in-french-fury/159736.html

„As for some countries’ concerns about Russia's possible aggressive actions, I think that only an insane person and only in a dream can imagine that Russia would suddenly attack NATO. I think some countries are simply taking advantage of people’s fears with regard to Russia. They just want to play the role of front-line countries that should receive some supplementary military, economic, financial or some other aid. Therefore, it is pointless to support this idea; it is absolutely groundless. But some may be interested in fostering such fears. I can only make a conjecture.

For example, the Americans do not want Russia's rapprochement with Europe. I am not asserting this, it is just a hypothesis. Let’s suppose that the United States would like to maintain its leadership in the Atlantic community. It needs an external threat, an external enemy to ensure this leadership. Iran is clearly not enough – this threat is not very scary or big enough. Who can be frightening? And then suddenly this crisis unfolds in Ukraine. Russia is forced to respond. Perhaps, it was engineered on purpose, I don’t know. But it was not our doing.

Let me tell you something – there is no need to fear Russia. The world has changed so drastically that people with some common sense cannot even imagine such a large-scale military conflict today. We have other things to think about, I assure you.“

„I think there are things of which I and the people who have worked with me can feel deservedly proud. They include restoring Russia's territorial integrity, strengthening the state, progress towards establishing a multiparty system, strengthening the parliamentary system, restoring the Armed Forces' potential and, of course, developing the economy. As you know, our economy has been growing by 6.9 percent a year on average over this time, and our GDP has increased by 7.7 percent over the first four months of this year alone.
When I began my work in the year 2000, 30 percent of our population was living below the poverty line. There has been a two-fold drop in the number of people living below the poverty line since then and the figure today is around 15 percent. By 2009-2010, we will bring this figure down to 10 percent, and this will bring us in line with the European average.
We had enormous debts, simply catastrophic for our economy, but we have paid them off in full now. Not only have we paid our debts, but we now have the best foreign debt to GDP ratio in Europe. Our gold and currency reserve figures are well known: in 2000, they stood at just $12 billion and we had a debt of more than 100 percent of GDP, but now we have the third-biggest gold and currency reserves in the world and they have increased by $90 billion over the first four months of this year alone.
During the 1990s and even in 2000-2001, we had massive capital flight from Russia with $15 billion, $20 billion or $25 billion leaving the country every year. Last year we reversed this situation for the first time and had capital inflow of $41 billion. We have already had capital inflow of $40 billion over the first four months of this year. Russia's stock market capitalisation showed immense growth last year and increased by more than 50 percent. This is one of the best results in the world, perhaps even the best. Our economy was near the bottom of the list of world economies in terms of size but today it has climbed to ninth place and in some areas has even overtaken some of the other G8 countries' economies. This means that today we are able to tackle social problems. Real incomes are growing by around 12 percent a year. Real income growth over the first four months of this year came to just over 18 percent, while wages rose by 11-12 percent.
Looking at the problems we have yet to resolve, one of the biggest is the huge income gap between the people at the top and the bottom of the scale. Combating poverty is obviously one of our top priorities in the immediate term and we still have to do a lot to improve our pension system too because the correlation between pensions and the average wage is still lower here than in Europe. The gap between incomes at the top and bottom end of the scale is still high here – a 15.6-15.7-fold difference. This is less than in the United States today (they have a figure of 15.9) but more than in the UK or Italy (where they have 13.6-13.7). But this remains a big gap for us and fighting poverty is one of our biggest priorities.“
