The Astrakhan crisis has gone national with opposition figures like anticorruption blogger Aleksei Navalny, Left Front leader Sergei Udaltsov, and others traveling there to lend support to Shein. In this week's edition of The Power Vertical podcast, I sit down with Kirill Kobrin, managing editor of RFE/RL's Russian Service about the implications of the dramatic events in Astrakhan and what it means for the Kremlin. Also, Kirill and I discuss what kind of regime Vladimir Putin wants to establish in Russia when he returns to the Kremlin.
