Mark Galeotti writes ( about Vladimir Putin ) : "Russia is a declining power, a part-reformed, part-stagnant fragment of a shattered and spent empire," "Vladimir Putin, though, has perfected a foreign policy built on equal parts chutzpah, gamesmanship, and bluff. His aim, after all, is not to rebuild a Soviet Union 2.0, nor to spread any ideological message abroad. It is, rather, to force or persuade the outside world to conform to his will, to allow him to claim a sphere of influence and exempt Russia from those influences of the global order he finds constraining, from international law to human rights" External link
