Book Talk: A Successful Failure - Russia After Crime(a)

The annexation of Crimea has transformed the Russian Federation. Three years of economic stagnation, international sanctions, and unstable oil prices have all had their effect. Within the government bureaucracy, power struggles are underway with new plans to address Russia’s post-Crimean reality. The editors of this book analyzed some of these trends and provided a road map for the workings of Russia after Crimea.
