Russian government resigns! UPDATE...Whoa...Did Putin just acquire ALL POWER in Russia?

Holy shit.  Story here.  Just saw this on my feed and I gotta dig into it a bit...back in a while...

via RT
 Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has announced that the government is resigning. The statement came shortly after President Vladimir Putin delivered his annual state-of-the-nation address.

Accepting the resignation, Putin asked the ministers to function as a caretaker government until a new one is formed.

Before announcing the resignation of the cabinet, Medvedev met with Putin to discuss his state-of-the-nation address, which took place earlier on Wednesday, the Kremlin’s press office said.

In his address, Putin proposed several amendments to the constitution.

Medvedev explained that this cabinet is resigning in accordance with the Article 117 of the Russian Constitution, which says that the government can offer its resignation to the president, who, in turn, can either accept or reject it.

“In this context, it is obvious that, as the government, we must provide the president with a capability to make all decisions,” which are required to implement the proposed plan, Medvedev said. 

Putin also said that he plans to create a position of the deputy secretary of Russia’s security council, and offer it to Medvedev.

Ok.  This is ominous.  Putin controls everything now (and many said he had control all along) and it's official.

I saw an earlier report that he wouldn't change the constitution so that he could serve another term.

Well no shit.  He don't have to now does he?

Just plain wow.
