  • Portrait of a Russian Provinceby Catherine Evtuhov

    University of Pittsburgh Press 2011; US$ 34.95

    University of Pittsburgh Press 2015; US$ 25.95

    Russia today represents one of the major examples of the phenomenon of ?electoral authoritarianism? which is characterized by adopting the trappings of democratic institutions (such as elections, political parties, and a legislature) and enlisting the service of the country?s essentially authoritarian rulers.

    In Ukraine's presidential elections of 2004, the establishment candidate Viktor Yanukovych had the advantages of a solid regional base, access to administrative resources, dominance in the media, help by Russian spin-doctors, and support of Moscow.
