The Bulletin

The Bulletin is R.Politik’s flagship publication. Available only to paid subscribers, it provides exclusive insight into Russian politics with analysis of both recent developments and long-term trends. Much of the writing draws heavily on sources in Moscow. Each edition is about 10,000 words and divided into three sections: Events (the latest political occurrences), Actors (who is up and who is down), and Processes (emerging political and economic patterns).
