Since the end of the Cold War, how has Russia positioned itself in the world? In a multipolar world where the American hyper power's best years seem to be past and where nationalist leaders are making their triumphant return, what are the strengths and weaknesses of Putin’s geopolitics?
Vladimir Putin wants to believe that his country can become a great power again. To this end, he tries to make sure that NATO and the European Union gain as little ground as possible in the former USSR, strengthens his bonds with China and imposes Russia as a pivotal actor in the Middle East in the ashes of the Syrian conflict – while also playing the soft power and information warfare global games.
