In this edition, two Chinese scholars outline their perspectives on contemporary Russian politics and the Ukraine conflict. Firstly, Zhang Xin argues that with the recent increase in conflict over the allocation of resources in Russia, the post-modern depoliticization politics of Surkov have given way to a more politicized context in which clearer lines of political contestation are evident. Secondly, Xing Guangcheng considers the implications of the Ukraine crisis for great-power strategic politics, suggesting that it has left Russia in a diminished strategic position, but that this may yet serve to motivate much-needed reform of the Russian economy.
