Event Details

It’s hard to reconcile the western media portrayal of Vladimir Putin with his popularity in his own country and repeated election victories. Can it really just be explained away by ‘Oh it’s a fix’ as many armchair commentators choose to? If not what actually is Putin’s secret of power?

Alexander Titov’s talk will lay out how Vladimir Putin rules Russia, why he remains so popular at home and why he fell out with the West, and perhaps most fascinatingly, how long can his system last.

Alexander is a Lecturer in Modern European History at Queen’s University where his three main research areas are Russian foreign policy and its links with different interpretations of Russian national identity; history of political thought and national ideologies in the 20th century Europe; and political history in the post-Stalin period. He is currently working on a new biography of Nikita Khrushchev for Routledge’s ‘Historical Biographies’ series.
