PODCAST | Maria Lipman | On the centennial of Russia’s Revolution & search for post-Soviet identity (2.24.17)

March 16, 2017

Maria Lipman, a Russian analyst and editor of the online journal Counterpoint, discusses Russia’s past and future as the country marks the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. According to Lipman, Russia does not have a shared national narrative of this formative event of the twentieth century. Lipman discusses how the Russian government is commemorating the anniversary and talks about what a fourth presidential term for Vladimir Putin might mean for the Russian Federation.

Maria Lipman was the featured speaker for the 2017 Herbert J. Ellison Memorial Lecture at the University of Washington.
