Vladimir Putin: Soviet Tsar? by Hugues HENRI

hugues henri

The war in Ukraine has seized international public opinion by its brutal irruption and its generalized violence against Ukrainian society. This invasion provoked the awareness of Vladimir Putin's inordinate will to power, which burst into the open after the underestimation of his plan to invade this neighboring country for many months prior to the outbreak of the war on February 24, 2022, despite the warnings of the Anglo-Saxon intelligence services. How to explain this lasting ignorance of Putin's warlike intentions without asking the questions of who this man is, how he came to these irrational and inhuman extremes? How did the Russian political system allow the accession to supreme power of a man who was labeled as "gray" at the beginning, especially after his training in the KGB, where his GRU department officials decided to bar him as "unsuitable for the functions of a KGB agent" because of his inability to dominate his deep negative impulses and his thirst for domination by any means? What were the ingredients and origins of his progressive pathological drift? Can we still deduce what he thinks of the situation created by the invasion of Ukraine, a "special operation" badly thought out with regard to a people and a country denied in their essence, and now transformed into a total war of attrition? It is difficult to give an opinion on such a conflict and its future outcome, but on the other hand, it is possible to deepen the analysis of Putin's personality through his acts, his postures, to better understand him, this is what this article proposes, without claiming to go beyond and cover the global geopolitical situation.

This paper looks at Vladimir Putin's public statements and articles devoted specially to historical issues which were published in 2019 through 2021 (with reference to the first such article published in 2009). The Russian President's statements and extended texts on history are scrutinized in this paper as political messages having a certain target audience and political goals. The analysis has revealed a rapid evolution of Putin's approach to relations with the West in 2019-2021, from attempts to reanimate the dialogue to a sharp confrontation. It has also proved the

Review of the book “Russia without Putin” by Tony Wood

George Tsygankin

As the belief in a strong personality, able to change the world for the better, as the image of a vicious villain, threatening the entire world, are deeply rooted in the minds of the people, stirred up by mass culture and mass media. It all comes down to the old question, which thrilled the minds even in the far XIXth century – the role of a personality in history. Frankly subjective approach of Western mass media, expressed in the exaggeration of Putin's role, resonated with the American left-wing politicians. Tony Wood, the "New Left Review" journal editor, in his recently published book "Russia without Putin", stands up for the scientific view of the role of Vladimir Putin’s personality in the history of post-Soviet Russia. This review will briefly focus on the main arguments, used by the author, specifying their main advantages and disadvantages. It will try to provide answers on the main question of whether the author managed to see and show Russia without Putin?
