Is Putin tired, or are people tired of Putin?

In November 2023, several essential election campaigns are due to begin worldwide, the results of which will largely determine geopolitical trends for the coming decades. First, we are talking about presidential elections in the USA and Russia, as well as elections to the European Parliament. And while the US is still discussing the main contenders for the White House, expectations from the elections in Russia are demonstrating the usual scepticism.

In Russia, you can often hear a joke according to which there is not a single cat left in the country born before Putin’s first presidential term. Indeed, for almost 24 years in power (including the break for the prime minister’s post), Putin has demonstrated stability and the ability to deal with all competitors. Of course, he is still far from reaching Stalin, who ruled Russia for 32 years, or even Mao Zedong, who ruled China for 27 years, but he is now faced with an important choice: go down in history, remaining a great ruler for most Russians, or to stay for another term and continue to lead the country to isolation and dictatorship.

In this article, Ascolta analyses the mood in the Kremlin on the eve of the presidential elections and also examines the main options for the development of events that will determine the fate of Russia for the next 6 years.
