Photo: Valery Sharifulin/TASS updated in 17:27statya the Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation Vladislav Surkov "The long state of Putina" which was published "By the independent newspaper, is a little covered in the international press, however the publication entailed a huge number of comments of the western experts and journalists. Their remarks not always flatter, but giving interest in the statements of the politician. "Surkov returned! The political choice is an illusion. Putin created new type of the state. The Russian society trusts "the Supreme governor", and the legitimacy of a system is under construction exactly and only on this trust". This quote generalizes from Twitter of the former head of the Moscow bureau The New York Times Ellen Barry that took from program article of Surkov journalistic and expert Twitter in the West. "I see many comments according to Surkov — some speak "See, it proves our position about expansionist policy of Russia", others write "Surkov nobody just as Dugin". What your verdict?" — the Franco-American political strategist Evan O'Konnel starts a discussion. The second version is more popular, it is possible, simple because of hostility to Putin's assistant. As the ex-observer of BBC and blogger Leonid Ragozin says, "the publication will give to the western experts material for discussions for the years ahead, but there is one problem: Surkov the troll also you should not feed him". According to the journalist, in Surkov's argument the hole gapes: if the idea of the Russian state is based on trust to the leader how it is combined with record falling of trust of Russians to the power? It is echoed by Maxim Edwards, the ex-editor of the Project on investigation of corruption and organized crime famous according to "The Panama file". The journalist considers that Surkov adores seeing in the western editions headings it seems "Get acquainted with the person who became Putin's brain" though actually his publications — only trolling. The short and painful attack towards the Russian political strategist is done also by the Moscow correspondent of The Financial Times Max Seddon. Quote: "Do you remember when in 2011 Surkov sounded it is fresh and is risky?" However the discussion is not limited to some poisonous attacks. Unexpectedly seriously the ex-US Ambassador to Russia and professor of Stanford Michael McFaul treated Surkov's publication. The diplomat provides the most popular quote from article — that Russia "interferes with a brain" the western society, and there do not know, "what to do with own changed consciousness". According to McFaul, Surkov it is necessary to thank for frankness, and all others have to "be scared to death" by such statement. The writer and neurobiologist Brian William Jones agrees with the statement for influence of Russia: "It is terrible that Surkov is not mistaken. Russia changes an insertion of America". Receding from opposition of those who sneer at Surkov aside, and those who shiver for horror at the thought of it, the third position is said by the director of Institute
