TitleWhat’s behind Alexei Navalny’s digital challenge to Vladimir Putin’s regime? Five things to know.
AuthorsHerasimenka, A.
Abstract

My research on the anti-corruption and pro-democracy campaign of Alexei Navalny in Russia looks at the alternative communication space that Navalny and his followers built using social media platforms. This space now dominates online political discussion in Russia. It also influences traditional media and the political agenda of the country, giving Navalny a far-ranging voice.
