Russian Politics, & Personalities

Yelena Skrynnik

leave a comment »

This story came up on my Reader this morning, and it struck me as possibly being important.  Not the actual stuff about commodities (which I do not really understand, as I have never taken an economics course), but the bit about Yelena Skrynnik.  There is something going on within the Agriculture Ministry, but I cannot quite put my finger on what.  Part of me wants to say that she’s trying to feel her way through her first year.  And to a certain degree, I think that’s true.

But I just feel like there’s more going on here than just Lena being conservative with her numbers.
