Power Vertical Podcast Ep. 8

The Power Vertical is a CEPA podcast covering the Kremlin for Kremlin watchers. All opinions are those of the guests and do not necessarily represent the position or views of the institutions they represent or the Center for European Policy Analysis.


The restoration of empire. A multipolar world led by great powers. Spheres of influence. Personalized rule. An authoritarian and patrimonial state. Support for so-called traditional values. And something called sovereign democracy.

All of these things have been associated with something we have come to call Putinism. But does it all add up to an ideology?

On this week’s Power Vertical Podcast, I unpack Putinism and its challenge to the West with Leon Aron, a resident scholar and director of Russian studies at the American Enterprise Institute.
