Conversations on Russia

Sergei Rogov

Oxford University Press

Sergei Rogov is director of the Moscow Institute of USA and Canada Studies. Rogov's institute is a leading think tank under the Russian Academy of Sciences, which provides advisory input on foreign policy, military, and economic issues to Russian government agencies. He points out that the adoption of a constitution toward the end of 1993 gave enormous authority to the executive without appropriate checks and balances. Yeltsin abandoned the notion of checks and balances and created a democracy for bureaucracy and operated by democracy. The legislative branch is weak and dominated by the executive authority while the judiciary is not independent.

Keywords:   Sergei Rogov, constitution, checks and balances, democracy, bureaucracy, judiciary
