Professor Kovacevic discusses the problems associated with Putin’s choice of Dmitry Medvedev for the post of the Russian prime minister yet again. In addition, he chronicles the process of a Chinese company being pushed out of the Russian oil company Rosneft shareholding deal and the gleeful attitude of the pro-Western Russian press.

  1. Medvedev, too quick to please the zios.

  2. Usual high quality insight from Prof. Kovacevic.

  3. Ilce Jovanov says:

    not sure i agree with everything being said. Given the complexity and through attention of Putin, there is probably an angle mr Kovachevich cannot see
