    Media Manipulation and Political Control in Russia

    The Kremlin maintains control over the Russian media by exerting pressure over media tycoons and station owners while avoiding direct repression. As a result, although the national media serves as a tool for government propaganda, there has been relatively little popular discontent.

    For Russia, A Dark Horizon

    Due to the current economic crisis, Vladimir Putin is facing, for the first time since his rise to power, the prospect of real political instability.

    Nearly 86,000 people have signed a letter asking President Medvedev to pardon Svetlana Bakhmina, a former lawyer for Yukos. Bakhmina, who is due to give birth within weeks, is in a prison camp.

    From Confrontation to Dialogue

    The search for a way for all parties in the Russia-Georgia conflict to sit down at the negotiating table is gradually beginning.

Nevertheless, excessive pressure on Moscow will only strengthen its internal conservative forces and thus exacerbate its hard line stance.
