The Daily Vertical: Putin And The Paradox Of The Polls (Transcript)

By Brian Whitmore, for RFE/RL Vladimir Putin receives incomplete and distorted information about conditions in Russia and he is often deceived by his aides. The Kremlin leader is also highly dependent on the security services. And he acts largely in the interests of the security services, oligarchs, bankers, and business tycoons. Now, just to be clear, these are not my opinions. They are the findings of a new poll by

UK, the latest target of fake Russian twitter accounts

By EU vs Disinfo After the United States, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain, it’s the turn of the United Kingdom to sound the alarm about Russian meddling.

Putin’s meddling in US elections backfiring on his own allies at home and on Americans who helped them, Shevtsova says

By Paul Goble, Window on Eurasia The Kremlin’s effort to affect the outcome of the 2016 US presidential elections has provoked one consequence Moscow has long wanted – the demoralization of the American elite – but it is having other less welcome ones on both that elite and the Russian one, something only becoming clear, Liliya Shevtsova says. The American investigation into Russia’s involvement is rapidly spreading from a focus

Aleksandr III and a Three-headed dragon: Russian statues send mixed and conflicting messages

By Paul Goble, Window on Eurasia In Russia today, monuments more than memoranda have become the most favored way of expressing political views at least in part because, however controversial many of them inevitably become, statues allow for multiple interpretations or alternatively for none at all.
