Douglas Weiner Talk - Putin's Russia: Legacy of a Troubled Past

We are pleased and fortunate to have a fellow alumnus, Douglas Weiner, a Professor of History at the University of Arizona, Russian and Slavic Studies, share with us his wealth of knowledge regarding Russia and Putin.

Following a brief highlight of Russian history, you will learn how Putin, whose father was in the Navy (subs) and whose paternal grandfather was a cook for Lenin and Stalin, who grew up in a communal apartment in St. Petersburg and did not do well in grade school, rose to the pinnacle of power following Russia’s 1992 traumatic economic changes.
