Podcast: Russia's Fake State
A crumbling facade? A guard stands guard at the Kremlin in Moscow.
The government seems invisible. The prime minister is publicly ridiculed on a regular basis. The parliament seems to get more outlandish by the day.
In the latest edition of "The Power Vertical Podcast," I discuss the deterioration of Russia's political institutions with regular co-host Kirill Kobrin of RFE/RL's Russian Service.
Also on the podcast, Kirill and I discuss a mysterious video attacking Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev that appeared on the Internet this week.
