This chapter outlines the relationship between businessmen and state in terms of private exploitation of state resources, and capture of the state. After outlining the particular conditions within Russia that encouraged the emergent bourgeoisie to seek to exploit state resources, the chapter shows how this was done. It also focuses upon the relationship between the state elite and the oligarchs, arguing that while the latter may have been quite influential under Yeltsin, they never controlled the state, and in any case under Putin they have been reined in. An expansion of state activity in the economic sector has firmly established state primacy in this field.

Keywords:   exploitation, resource, state, state capture, oligarchs, Yeltsin, Putin
