Are Vladimir Putin’s days numbered? Or is the Russian leader’s grip on power as strong as ever? In this new subscriber exclusive series ‘After Putin’ from Intelligence Squared, we explore whether after twenty three years of rule in Russia Putin’s time in power is coming to an end. Through interviews with policy-makers, military personnel, journalists and academics, we reflect on whether a mutiny led by Yevgeny Prighozin’s Wagner forces on Saturday June 24 2023 has set the wheels in motion for a Russia without Putin and what could come next.
