Around the whole of Russian dominated territory, we may expect that the Soviet government will erect a sort of political Chinese wall. Russia will expect complete non-interference by foreign countries with affairs on her side of the wall.

Paul Winterton, wartime correspondent of the 'Daily Telegraph', July 1945.

Overview: Russia

Mr Putin’s success in retaining his power base was remarkable. His various public persona focussed on presenting the image required by the needs of the day, strong-man, statesman, sportsman, man of the people. What Mr Putin could no longer do – in his second term as president – was present himself as an outsider. He was, none the less, a lone figure, his loneliness emphasised in mid 2013 by the announcement of his divorce from Lyudmila, with whom he had not been seen in public for decades. Some political observers saw even this announcement as a move to improve his political standing, the narrative being that he had left Lyudmila for ‘Russia’.  There certainly has been a pattern of political reform in Russia being more associated with ‘family men’ reformists such as Krushchev  and Gorbachev.
