A shift of president in Russia is likely to go along with a shift in foreign policy. The world is changing, and the new leader will have to face some new, tougher challenges.
A week before the election, the race favorite Vladimir Putin published HIS opinion on Russia’s foreign policy.
What are problems Russia may encounter in the future and how Putin is going to cope with them, if elected? Will Russia’s foreign policy really change dramatically then, or are his proposals just pre-election rhetoric?
We’ll discuss it now with Andrey Zolotov, Editor-in-Chief of Russia Profile, and Jeffrey Tayler, Moscow correspondent of the Atlantic Magazine.
