Vladimir Putin's address the day after the terrible end of the hostage tragedy in Beslan
Vladimir Putin's address the day after the terrible end of the hostage tragedy in Beslan did not leave anyone indifferent. However, experts and political scientists differ in their assessments. Some interpreted it as a call for the revival of the empire, while others thought he wanted to strengthen public institutions. Sergei KARAGANOV, president of the Council of Foreign and Defence Policy: To strengthen the country's unity, we should above all apply the full force of the judicial system against any attempt to foster ethnic hatred. The most obvious task is to modernise all law enforcement and security structures and, most importantly, create a coordinating agency. Stanislav BELKOVSKY, president of the National Strategy Institute: The restoration of national unity calls above all for creating a new elite, uncompromising reorganizing the executive branch of power, and determining the political and social groups on which the president can rely in this modernization drive. These are different groups, from the Orthodox Church to regional elites. The security structures will be consolidated into a kind of KGB. Gleb PAVLOVSKY, president of the Effective Policy Foundation: We must overhaul how society and non-governmental organizations, including parties, are involved in the formation of the power. We need a purge of the state structures. It should not be carried out by those who should be purged but by transparent public structures. We cannot allow our partners, the EU and the U.S., to call terrorists rebels in their official documents. Sergei MARKOV, president of the Foundation for Political Studies: I think there will be a considerable strengthening of the so-called power vertical, meaning all federal institutions. The regional bosses will have fewer powers, while the federal authorities will have more. Furthermore, a North Caucasus center will be created.
