Election of Zeman shows limits and opportunities of Moscow's meddling
The pro-Russian Czech president Miloš Zeman (73) won the election from pro-European candidate Jiri Drahoš. This is good news for the Kremlin, and shoudl have been clinched by Russian disinformation. But is it that simple? Our security analyst Mark Galeotti puts things into perspective in his analysis for RaamopRusland. Fake news can come just as easily from domestic propagandists and the presidency is but a ceremonial job. In essence this political fight amounts to the split between the Prague Café and the Czech pub.

Is Putin’s trolling “making Russia great again”?
"In many ways, Russia is the geopolitical equivalent of the internet troll, deliberately sowing discord. There is an obvious and severe critique to be made about such a foreign policy, but it is also worth appreciating just why the Kremlin has adopted it – and appears to feel it is working," writes Mark Galeotti in his article for Business New Europe.

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.
