The Last (but Lasting) Empire

While Russia’s imperial history shares similarities to that of Western European states from the 16th to 20th century, Russia’s is arguably the most complex and contradictory. Dr. Vladislav Inozemtsev, Director of the Center for Post-Industrial Studies, discussed the course of Russia’s empire-building efforts over the centuries. He contends that while modern Russia is the heir to both the Tsarist and Soviet empires, it inherited all the worst features of each system, which has created a highly unstable and fragile political system today.
