Good episode? Give it some love!
Looming unrest in Russia.   Experts believe President Putin's popularity is in a nose dive because of Covid19, low oil prices, rising unemployment, broken businesses, disappointment and dissatisfaction with The Kremlin.   

The referendum to extend Putin's stay in power is being rushed because The Kremlin knows that unrest is likely to boil over by the fall into street protests.

Former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, and Maria Snegovaya from the Centre for European Policy analysis talk to BACKSTORY with Dana Lewis about fake Covid19 death rates, and torqued polling and referendum results.  And both predict we are in un-chartered waters now in Russia politics, and Putin's leadership is predicted to be a casualty of the pandemic.
