Title Från kaos till ordning och storhet : Politisk myt i Putins Ryssland
Author(s) Petersson, Bo
Date 2013
English abstract
This paper advances the idea that two partly symbiotic, partly countervailing and very potent political myths, one about Russia’s historically preordained great power status and the other about the frequent inhibitions to its great power aspirations due to domestic weakness, foreign intervention and Times of Troubles, reflect and reveal major dynamics of contemporary political life in Russia. The perspective provides a key to the understanding of Vladimir Putin’s longstanding domestic popularity and legitimacy as a president. An analysis of President Putin’s annual addresses to the Federal Assembly shows how these myths have been drawn upon in contemporary Russian political rhetoric and practice during the periods 2000-2008 and from 2012 onwards.
