• A Challenging Choice for Putin

    Present Russian presidential elections are happening in a rather complication situation. The tension demonstrates itself both inside Russia and in its international policy. Of course, the nature of present situation was under influence from growing protective behaviors of the populations of major urban communities, after the parliamentary elections of December 2011. Consequently, Vladimir Putin’s election process, seen as something rather routine several months ago, transformed into something requiring the maximum concentration of strength and efforts by all of Vladimir Putin’s team.
