The results of Russia's stage-managed "election" may have been preordained and predictable. But what happens next is anybody's guess.
On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, we discuss the takeaways from the March 18 vote and what to expect going forward.
Joining me is RFE/RL's News Editor Steve Gutterman.
NOTE: The Power Vertical Briefing is a short look ahead to the stories expected to make news in Russia in the coming week. It is hosted by Brian Whitmore, author of The Power Vertical blog, and appears on Mondays.
