“To my thinking, in December, Putin received proves that there was a conspiracy by the members of Medvedev's government, high-ranking functionaries and heads of a number of oligarchic clans,” said Averyanov. He added that this split might be traced back to some other events.

The resignation of Dmitry Medvedev's government as a result of the Russian President's annual address to the Federal Assembly came as a surprise to many people. The Medvedev cabinet brought discredit on itself by the pension reform and series of tough steps that were broadly labelled as “antisocial.” Therefore, it was simply impossible to continue building a new power vertical with the team of this kind.

Meanwhile, Vitaly Averyanov, a well-known Russian writer and philosopher, believes that there are some solid reasons behind Putin's earlier appeal to deputies and Medvedev's resignation. According to him, in January 2020, Putin prevented a coup d'état by dismissing the entire government. Averyanov said that he came to this conclusion after analyzing Putin’s address and manner of speech, as well as subsequent changes in the structure of state power.

“Medvedev's Government Conspiracy”

It is noteworthy that Averyanov calls the Russian President “an evolutionary politician who is unlikely to change the existing balance of power so drastically.” However, Putin simply had no other choice this time, stresses Averyanov.

“To my thinking, in December, Putin received proves that there was a conspiracy by the members of Medvedev's government, high-ranking functionaries and heads of a number of oligarchic clans,” said Averyanov. He added that this split might be traced back to some other events.

As a result, there was a split of elites that forced the security services and law enforcement agencies to interfere in the situation.

“Later, we had a chance to be witnesses of a drastic breakthrough. Even the very fact that the President's address to the Federal Assembly was postponed to so early date after which the resignation of the government was immediately announced, is a direct evidence of it,” he says.

Averyanov states that in this case, the resignation of the government in January 2020 was a kind of the solution adjusted to the general concept, rather than a direct consequence of the split of elites. Anyway, he is confident that Vladimir Putin managed to prevent a coup d'état, which at that time was not just merely afoot, but was already in progress -- “carried out underhandedly and gradually.”

Moreover, Averyanov even explained that the signs of that coup d'état might be traced back, for example, to the disruption of practical steps on the decrees and instructions of the Russian President, to the adoption of pension reform and many other decisions. Believably, they undermined popular trust not only in the authorities in general, but also in the President in particular.
