Kennan Long View Series | The Political Landscape in Russia

Date & Time

Feb. 28, 2024
11:00am – 12:00pm ET


Online Only


In this Long View conversation, Michael Kimmage interviews Maria Lipman about the political landscape in Russia. One story line is the March 2024 presidential election in Russia and its significance both for Vladimir Putin and for the Russian population. Another story line is incorporation of the war in Ukraine into the status quo of domestic Russian politics - the militarization of society this has caused and at the same time the maintenance of a dividing line between what Russia does abroad and how people live within Russia. Finally, Lipman and Kimmage will discuss those aspects of Russian political life that are not in lockstep with the Kremlin, that register discontent with the war and that point to future points of tension within the Russian body politic.
