MetadataShow full item record
The reborn anti-corruption related mass protests in Russia in early 2017 once again bring up questions about the political reaction to the previous oppositional awakening of 2011. The nature of the political regime in Russia throughout the 2012-2017 had important normative agenda, which deeply affected European-Russian relations on their intergovernmental level, but also on the identity policies and discourse in the Russian domestic affairs. In this article an overview of the discourses under Vladimir Putin's post-2012 presidential term is given. It is also suggested, that the current corruption-related upraising may have less to do with the mainstream government support rate, than it appears.
