BUREAUCRATIC CONTROL OVER SECURITY FORCES WILL GUARANTEE CHANGE IN RUSSIA


14 2010
Bureaucrats in Russia can probably be considered a separate social stratum. Those bureaucrats who do all the leg work are the middle class, but the top, long-serving echelons of a bureaucracy are its ‘upper class.’ We can also look at income and property as the factors that determine such ‘placement.’ Dmitry Medvedev is a rational bureaucrat. Whether or
not he is an ideal bureaucrat I will leave to Russians to decide.
