In an article published at the end of January 2012, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced the end of the post-Soviet era and called for something new. However, the presidential candidate did not specify what this something new might be. In effect, Russia’s leading politician has acknowledged that the public and political fixation on the collapse of the Soviet Union is no longer a positive, galvanizing force. Russia needs a new agenda.
