The Strong State in Russia

Andrei P. Tsygankov

Yelstin completed the transition to the post-Soviet era by destroying industry and creating a class of super wealthy oligarchs that effectively monopolized control over the economy and political system. While working to undermine foundations of the Soviet state and remove Gorbachev from power, he promised to give Russia’s republics as much sovereignty as they “could swallow” and ultimately had to intervene in Chechnya.

Keywords:   Yelstin’s coalition, oligarchs, intervention in Chechnya
