Mark Galeotti on Last Week on Earth Podcast

Mark Galeotti joined Last Week on Earth podcast by Global Arena Research institute for a conversation on Russia's history.

Our senior nonresident fellow Mark Galeotti joined Last Week on Earth podcast for a conversation on Russia’s history and possible future. While the trend towards modernisation and a deep seated need for displaying its strength are apparent, Russia has no master plan for world domination. The West mistrusts Russian leaders, however, the state is not as centralized and organized as it pretends to be. In fact, powerful actors within the country use current opportunities for their own personal gain, rather than for expanding Moscow’s might. Do the elites wish to move away from the current kleptocratic system, or is rule of law nowhere in sight?
