Life of the opposition in Russia is unenviable. The current authoritarian Russia referring to itself as „a sovereign democracy“, executes a triple policy regarding the democratic opposition.

Aleksandr Dugin is a Russian geopolitician and a representative of the classical geopolicy school. According to this school, the fate of states is determined by their geographical determinism. It also says that contraposition of continental and marine powers, coinciding with the confrontation between the East and the West, is predetermined. The goal of each side is to restrict each other’s powers.
