The Future of Russian Politics

Russian politics today are a reaction to the country’s experiences since the end of the Cold War. Shortly after his election in 2000 Vladimir Putin sought to re-invent Russian politics in three main steps. First, he tried to establish a so-called “sovereign democracy”. Second, he developed a new economic model, seizing assets from oligarchs to create a form of state capitalism. Finally, he used these assets to restore Russia’s status as an energy superpower. With Dmitry Medvedev’s election the Putin model became a hotly debated topic. But rather than initiating a change, Medvedev’s current policy can be described as “Putin 2.0”. The model is becoming more open and pluralistic but its basics remain intact. The question rises: has Medvedev failed in providing a modernizing alternative?
