The Russian Regional Hegemony

Prof. Jeanne Wilson recently published an article, entitled “The Russian Pursuit of Regional Hegemony”, in the journal Rising Powers Quarterly 2.1.

“Vladimir Putin… assumed office with the aim of redressing the precipitous decline in Russia’s presence in the post-Soviet region,” Prof. Wilson states in the article, going on to dissect how Putin extended Russian influence into regional organizations, also demonstrating how these actions establish Russia as the leader of a regional hegemonic bloc.
