Democracy, dead-end Putinism, or Nationalist Obsurantism.

Georgy Saratov : Think tank director
"Russia can go down three paths: democracy, which would preserve the country and provide prosperity for its citizens; the dead end of Putininism; or an orgy of nationalist obscurantism.

Either of the second two scenarios would increase dramatically the likelihood of Russia’s eventual disintegration."
