Yes, the theme of the fight against corruption the President touched upon this time in an unusual aspect.
Instead of the traditional assurances that corruption is consistently eradicated, Putin has focused on coverage of high-profile cases of corruption in the media.
Around such cases, in his opinion, harmful noise. And noise a lot lately. And I raised him, “the representatives of investigative law enforcement agencies.”
We tried to figure out what “noise” the President has in mind because he is different.
Sometimes the “noise” of leaks and discharges, when law enforcement authorities will publish information on high-ranking corrupt officials, not opening yourself and pursuing personal goals, often frankly materialistic.
Such “noise” in the media was pretty much in 90 years. But now it is a rarity. Whoever this “noise” creates, it’s easy to calculate. He was immediately fired. “Rat” in law enforcement is unique. He or a fool, or kamikaze.
Another thing — official “noise”, when representatives of the investigating authorities and the Prosecutor’s office openly explain on TV and in the Newspapers, for he was arrested one time or another senior official. Demonstrates operational footage: how he was detained that he had found during the search, he lives in what mansion, in boxes from-under kind of shoes keeps countless treasures.

Photos billion, found the Colonel of the interior Ministry Zakharchenko
Apparently, this is the official “noise” meant the President.
In mass media it quite a lot, it’s true.
They generously accompanied by a case of defense Minister Serdyukov and Yevgenia Vasilyeva, head of the FCS Belyaninov, the Governor of Sakhalin khoroshavina, megamillionaire Colonel Zakharchenko. Less noise was around other high-profile cases. But to some extent it is always present, and to the President’s address in this no one saw anything wrong.
For the Agency, which carries out the detention of the official, it is an occasion for PR. And society gets uplifting information. Ofigevayu from corruption citizens see it as a good sign: yeah, and sky-high thieves have been justice.
In this case, however, discredited the state itself. Details about the private life of the detained officials, almost on a daily basis recoverable in the light of day, dropping a shadow on all public employees and public administration in General.
That is what drew the attention of the President.
The signal applied thus Putin militiamen, crystal clear. Finish PR on corrupt officials. Piartes for thugs and murderers. And it is better not piartes. Markin settled RusHydro, but for all of you “RusHydro” is not enough.
In short, the conclusion from this part of the Message like this: hot shots full of money apartments civil servants on our TV screens, we likely will not see.
Caesar and the God of gods.
The law enforcement show for a wide audience over. Now all the show — only Christmas.
