Generation-P, the children of those in Vladimir Putin's inner circle, is coming of age and coming into its own.
They're executives at banks, energy companies, and pension funds. They're worth billions. And they increasingly resemble the heirs of a new aristocracy.
Will they inherit their parents' power? Or will they share the fates of previous generations of Russian nobility?
On the latest Power Vertical Podcast, we address these questions. Joining me are Mark Galeotti, a professor at New York University, an expert on Russia's security services, and author of the blog In Moscow's Shadows; and Sean Guillory of the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian and Eastern European Studies, author of Sean's Russia Blog and host of the SRB Podcast.
