«Centers of influence» in the Russian politics

Special attention is drawn to formal and informal channels of interaction between elite clans, the “conflict zones,” and the clans’ methods of promoting their interests. The study also attempts to predict developments in the short- and medium-term future.

The analytical study is based on exclusive sources and insiders.

The study dwells on the following subjects:

  • Major centers of influence both on the federal and regional levels of power. Analytical and ideological groups that cater for them
  • Political standoff between elite clans, specific features of their interplay
  • Available resources, administrative advantages, and weaknesses of centers of influences and structures affiliated with them
  • Methods the powerhouses use to promote their political and business interests, their lobbies
