Putin and the Attenuation of Russian Democracy

Putin and the Attenuation of Russian Democracy

(p.103) 6 Putin and the Attenuation of Russian Democracy
Leading Russia: Putin in Perspective

Timothy F. Colton

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that Russia is further removed from democratisation than it was at the beginning of the 1990s. De-democratisation has been attributed to encroachments on electoral competition, as evidenced by the decline in electoral contestation. Short-term prospects are dim for the reversal of the decline in democratic contestation. The symbiosis of the upper echelons of the governing elite with United Russia will continue to grow during Putin’s tenure, as will their efforts to continue the Naderization of the opposition.

Keywords:   Russia, politics, de-democratisation, elections, electoral competition, democracy
