Leonid Volkov, ‘Russian Politics After Putin’

February 28, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Vladimir Putin won his reelection in March 2018 with a convincing margin, but now his regime is facing probably the most complicated challenges in the last 20 years. Why is that happening? How will Russian political elite resolve the succession issue? And what are the opportunities for the opposition in this changing political environment?

Leonid Volkov is a Russian politician and the chief of staff for Alexei Navalny, Russia’s main opposition leader. He is a former deputy of the Yekaterinburg City Duma and chair of the central election committee of the Russian Opposition Coordination Council. He is the founder of the Internet Protection Society, an NGO focused on internet freedom and digital rights in Russia.
