The timing is just right for Navalny to challenge Putin’s regime

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


In light of the recent protests in Moscow, Alexander Titov traces the history of anti-Putin protests since the 2011 swapping of roles between Putin and Dmitry Medvedev. He argues that the timing is just right for a new protest movement to gather momentum ahead of the March 2018 presidential election, but a question mark remains over whether Navalny’s appeal can spread beyond the relatively narrow anti-regime electorate.
