Russia’s Ideological Ecosystems: What Are the Interactions between Nationalists and the Kremlin?

Far from being the ideological monolith often described by Western pundits, the Russian regime nurtures ideological diversity. In her latest monograph, Russian Nationalism: Imaginaries, Doctrines and Political Battlefields, Marlene Laruelle explores the different ideological “ecosystems” that co-exist and compete for resources and attention in today’s Russia. She particularly discussed the place of Russian nationalists and how they interact within these intellectual ecosystems, as well as with the Kremlin itself.
