This chapter focuses on the opinions of the general public and political analysts regarding Vladimir Putin’s potential plans for Russia. Political observers state that Putin has a definite plan, while the majority of the people are unaware of any such strategy. President Dimitry Medvedev believes that Putin is a representation of any plan for the country. Putin’s plan focuses on the use of the natural resources of the country for overall economic and political development, and emphasizes having a better strategy to plan under uncertain conditions and emergencies. Putin also stresses the need to have a detailed, clear, and precise plan to derive the desired results.
