We need to talk about Putin (or do we?)

In English.

Vladimir Putin has acquired an extraordinary status in his twenty years at Russia's helm, variously the Machiavellian architect of all the West's woes, a patriotic strongman who had dragged his country from the verge of collapse, an opportunistic kleptocrat-mafioso, and an icon of traditional values abandoned in the West. The truth is, of course, somewhere in between and Mark Galeotti, author of the popular primer We Need To Talk About Putin (Ebury, 2019), will discuss the man, his evolution, and what may follow.
