Under the surface of a stable regime, a multitude of actors within the power elite are struggling for power, resources, and, above all โ€“ the future of Russia.

At the one extreme, wealthy businesspeople push for market reform and rapprochement with the West.

At the other, โ€˜warriorsโ€™ see the West as an existential threat and favour a mobilizational economy under tight state control.

This continuous power struggle shapes Russian policies on a daily basis and is key to understanding where Russia is heading when the Putin era is approaching its end.

It makes us wonder:

โ€ข How does the intra-elite battle for power and resources shape Russian politics?
โ€ข And how do current policies influence power relations within the elite?
