My dear Kacvey,

Do you recall the term “weak strongman” that was in this letter “The Weak and Desperate Strongman” of 9 October 2017, and that has also been used in our later correspondences?

Well, Foreign Affairs has published an article under the signature of Timothy Frye and titled: “Russia’s Weak Strongman – The Perilous Bargains That Keep Putin in Power

What an interesting article that presents so many similarities with our original “weak strongman”!

Enjoy the reading with your students!
