Jill Dougherty Wilson Center Project Summary
In her research at the Wilson Center, she said that she will focus on President Vladimir Putin’s efforts to control the Russian media and to use his nation’s soft power, its culture, language and “national idea” to achieve Russia’s foreign policy objectives.
The increasing centralization and mobilization of Russia’s domestic and international information resources in the hands of the state are providing the Kremlin the means to galvanize public opinion within the country, ignite passions in countries of the former Soviet Union with large populations of Russian-speakers, and forcefully assert Russia’s policies, views, and values internationally.
The end of the Soviet Union brought to an end its Communist ideology but, increasingly, Vladimir Putin’s vision of a resurgent Russia appears to be developing into a new ideology that must be better understood, if the United States and other Western countries are to manage relations with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
