Vladimir Putin address to citizens 2020-04-02

We conclude our series of conversations with speakers from the Naples Discussion Group’s 20-21 schedule by talking with Dr. Darrell Slider, Professor Emeritus in political science at University of South Florida.

His presentation on Friday, April 9 explored the challenges facing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime in these times of great change, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic and Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

Dr. Slider received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University in 1981 and he’s written extensively for decades about Russian Politics, the Politics of Georgia and other former Soviet Republics, Comparative Federalism, and Regional Politics.
