Latvian interview with Mark Galeotti
Putin wants to make Russia great again, but his idea of what makes a great power is very much out of the 19th century. To him, great powers must have spheres of influence such as Ukraine, Georgia, Belarus and elsewhere. No one should be able to tell a great power what to do, so, for Russia, international law and justice should have no traction. And Russia should have a voice on all global issues. In order to achieve all this, given Russia's weakness, Putin is seeking to divide, distract, and demoralise the West. That's the argument Mark Galeotti makes in his interview for Latvian journal Latvijas avīze: LA.

Is Chechnya's Kadyrov really 'dreaming' of quitting?
Ramzan Kadyrov, the wilful leader of Russia's southern Chechen republic, is talking about standing down. He says it is his "dream". However, if past practise is anything to go by, this does not mean for a minute that he is contemplating retirement at 41, or even relinquishing his ruthless grip on what has become his virtual personal fiefdom. Instead, this likely means that Kadyrov wants something - and that in itself tells us about the state of Russia today, " writes Mark Galeotti in his opinion piece for Al Jazeera.

Sobchak and the presidential reality show
"Why does the Kremlin allow socialite Ksenia Sobchak to take part in the presidential elections? Distraction? Theatricality? According to Mark Galeotti's piece for Raam op Rusland it reflects the limitations of Putin's hyper-presidential system. 'Vote against all' is a way out for the population."
Iron Curtains of the mind
