Globalism vs Populism in Russia’s Economy

In the eightieth of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Trud, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, and Sovietskaya Rossiya. He discusses the political views of Russians who live in the United States. He also talks about corruption within the Russian ruling class and about what the Russian president Vladimir Putin needs to do to keep his high popularity ratings. In addition, Professor Kovacevic chronicles the completion of one of the most important geostrategic infrastructure projects in Russian history – the Crimean bridge connecting the Crimean Peninsula to the Russian mainland. Lastly, he takes a look at how the largest opposition party in the Russian Parliament, the Communist Party of Russia, celebrated its most important holiday – the International Workers’ Day on May 1- and discusses its post-presidential-election political platform.

    Will somebody please please teach professor Filipovic how to pronounce in English and not to accent each word as per the Stanislavsky acting method? His talks contain very good information but it is simply “horrible” to listen to him.

    This is not to be taken personally at all. My own accent in English from South Africa is ghastly as well. I hate it.

  2. arabiyya says:

    Forgive my mistake with the professor’s name/ I meant Professor Filip Kovacevic

  3. Disagree completely arabiyya- Professor Kovacevic’s manner of speaking is just as appealing as the content.
