Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has announced that the entire government is resigning in a surprise statement released shortly after President Vladimir Putin delivered his annual state-of-the-nation address.
In a stunning display of unlimited power over the nation he controls, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has conspired together with Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev to successfully collapse the entire government of Russia, and now set out to completely remake it. Under the guise of “benefits to the people”, Putin is consolidating his power base so that, like Castro in Cuba, he will reign for many decades to come.

Keep in mind also that the new Russian government is one that will be personally handpicked by Putin, people who will be terrified to say ‘no’ to him, thus ensuring that Russia will become Putin’s Russia. The last time there was such sweeping changes in Russia was in 1993 under Boris Yeltsin.
Russian government resigns after President Putin’s state-of-the-nation address proposes changes to the constitution
FROM RT NEWS: Accepting the resignation, Putin thanked the ministers for their hard work and asked them to function as a caretaker government until a new one can be formed.
Medvedev and Putin had met for a work meeting to discuss the state-of-the-nation address earlier on Wednesday, the Kremlin said. Medvedev explained that the cabinet is resigning in accordance with Article 117 of the Russian Constitution, which states that the government can offer its resignation to the president, who can either accept or reject it.
During his speech, Putin said he intended to create the position of deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, which would be offered to Medvedev. Medvedev’s move to the new role will mean Russia will have a new prime minister when a new government is formed.

Putin also proposed multiple amendments to Russia’s constitution. His proposals would entail “substantial changes” to the constitution as well as to the “entire balance of power, the power of the executive, the power of the legislature, the power of the judiciary,” Medvedev explained.
“In this context, it is obvious that, as the government, we must provide the president with a capability to make all decisions,” which are required to implement the proposed plan, Medvedev said announcing the en-masse resignation.
Medvedev became prime minister in 2012, after serving four years as president. He currently heads the ruling United Russia party. READ MORE

It was meant to be a private chat on the sidelines of the Seoul nuclear security summit. But when Barack Obama told Dmitry Medvedev he would have “more flexibility” on difficult issues like missile defence after the US election, TV cameras were rolling. As he leaned towards his Russian counterpart, the US President was overhead saying: “This is my last election … After my election I will have more flexibility.”
