Life after Putin becomes debatable
"This Thursday, Vladimir Putin holds one of his trademark ‘Direct Line’ television spectaculars, an annual marathon at which he answers (carefully-curated) questions from the Russian public. In part, this is a symbolic act, the tsar speaking directly to his people, and in part an unashamedly political one, a reaffirmation of his effortless control of the system. It comes at a time when, despite Alexei Navalny’s anti-corruption campaign and rumblings from the impoverished masses, he seems unassailable as he prepares for another coronation in the 2018 presidential elections. So why is there now so much more talk about life after Putin?" asks Mark Galeotti in his newest piece for IntelliNews Business New Europe.

That, at present, the relationship between Moscow and Washington is more about optics and unwarranted optimism than any real substance, writes Mark Galeotti in his recent analysis for IntelliNews Business New Europe .
