Learn about the effects of Russia’s presidential election in April 13 discussion group

Last month, Vladmir Putin, who has ruled as either president or prime minister for the past 12 years, was elected president of Russia with a reported 64 percent of the vote. But there is some dissatisfaction with the current Russian regime, as shown both in December’s parliamentary elections and in local government elections that have taken place over the past month. What are the prospects for this regime going forward and for the Russian nation?

This is what Andrew Barnes, associate professor of political science at Kent State University, will discuss in Friday’s Public Affairs Discussion Group. The talk, titled “Russia’s Presidential Election,” will be held April 13 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in Kelvin Smith Library’s Dampeer Room.
