The collapse of central authority in the Soviet Union in 1991 ushered in a period of revolutionary transformations for the resulting states. The leaders of Russia, the successor to the USSR, struggled to restore central authority while trying to prevent further disintegration, create democratic politics, and introduce a market economy in the years to come. Russia would face another economic crisis and a rapidly evolving geopolitical order when it returned to the world stage. The case examines the different governance approaches of Presidents Boris Yeltsin, Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin and closes with a discussion on the strategic challenges and opportunities for Russia in 2019. The case focuses on issues of state authority; Fiscal capacity; Institutionalization of political parties; Relations between federal headquarters and state governments; Relations between the state and large corporations; Economic policy; International relations; and economic development models.
