The Year of the Dragon
Delicate Questions about Russia’s Future

Aleksej Naval'nyj, Boris Akunin

Deutsche Fassung


Two of the most prominent leaders of the new opposition are writer Boris Akunin and anti-corruption fighter Aleksei Naval’nyi. Here they discuss the meaning of Russian nationalism in multi-national Russia, analyse their nascent civil society’s prospects against the authoritarian regime, consider the likelihood of repression, and develop a program for Russia’s renewal. Most important is the establishment of a new justice system. That would be fundamental for all further reforms.
