Frankly speaking, many have been asking me in the last few days what I think about all of these rearrangements -[former head of the Presidential Administration] Volodin to the Duma, [former Duma Speaker] Naryshkin to the SVR [Foreign Intelligence Service], [former SVR chief] Fradkov to Russian Railways, etc.
I can come up with just one word: MEANINGLESS. It is absolutely meaningless to transplant long well-known speakers’ asses from one chair to another. No matter how much I look, I cannot see in this rotation any forward strategy. It does not really matter that a talking ass from this list will sit in any chair. I do not see any reason to somehow seriously accept these shifts.
