vevo quattordici anni quando ho conosciuto l’uomo che avrebbe cambiato la mia vita: Ruslan Isakov. Poi non l’ho più rivisto, ma non ho mai dimenticato il suo fisico imponente e forte, il suo volto sofisticato e virile, i suoi occhi cangianti, ora verdi ora nocciola, che mi guardavano come se volessero carpire i segreti più intimi della mia anima. Non ho mai dimenticato il potere e la sicurezza che emanava, la sua voce ammaliatrice, le sue parole cariche di sottintesi. La sera del mio diciottesimo compleanno, Ruslan è ricomparso per portarmi via, perché la mia famiglia mi ha venduto a lui e io ho lasciato che mi comprasse, decisa a salvare l’ultima cosa preziosa che mi era rimasta. Ruslan mi ha strappato via dalla mia adorata Tikhvin nel cuore della notte e alle prime luci dell’alba, ero già a San Pietroburgo, intrappolata fra le pareti ostili della sua villa nascosta fra i boschi, in balìa di un covo di serpi. Ruslan è il peggiore della famiglia Isakov. Lui è un cobra..

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.
