Under the surface of a stable regime, a multitude of actors within the power elite are struggling for power, resources, and, above all – the future of Russia.
At the one extreme, wealthy businesspeople push for market reform and rapprochement with the West.
At the other, ‘warriors’ 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:
• How does the intra-elite battle for power and resources shape Russian politics?
• And how do current policies influence power relations within the elite?
