Russia’s Domestic Security Wars: Putin’s Use of Divide and Rule Against His Hardline Allies

Russia’s Domestic Security Wars: Putin’s Use of Divide and Rule Against His Hardline Allies By Peter Reddaway
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 118 Pages | ISBN : 3319773917 | 2.74 MB

The book is a case study of Putin’s use of the tactics of divide and rule in relation to, particularly, the hard-line elements among his supporters. It illustrates Putin's methods of staying in power vis-à-vis groups that might put too much pressure on him, or who might even try to oust him. The project also suggests that Putin’s survival tactics have brought Russia to a deeply corrupt, state-dominated form of authoritarianism, which lacks deep institutional roots and will probably lead in due course to some form of state collapse. This work will appeal to a wide audience including political scientists, academics, graduate students, and everyone who is interested in contemporary Russian politics.

He meets the Putin opponent who has been banned from the election, hears from the opposition activists who say they have been attacked and finds out for himself what it is like to be targeted by the Russian state.
