Russia’s Presidential Elections: Putinism 2.0 or Better?

Tuesday, March 6
12:00 – 2:00 PM

The Russian presidential election scheduled for March 4 poses yet another challenge for the legitimacy of the Putin system. The Kremlin is still recovering from last December’s fraud-ridden parliamentary elections that triggered unprecedented protests in major Russian cities. Even if Putin wins reelection, he will face serious obstacles simply resuming the policies he pursued as president from 2000-2008. But are he and his regime capable of moving beyond "Putinism"?

Please join Hudson Institute for a discussion of the meaning of the election results and what they signal for the future of Russia and its relations with the United States.
