The Era of Putinism

Vladimir Putin has become a national symbol of Russia. Just like Josef Stalin and Vladimir Lenin before him, Putin’s persona will forever be engraved in the history of the Russian Federation. After serving two consecutive terms as President and one as Prime Minister, he is once again behind the wheel — although many would argue he never left it. It is time to remember how the story began and what the era of Putinism has brought to the Russian people.
