Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
 I'd be interested in your responses to these questions:

  What do you think Poutine would like his political legacy to be?  In other words, what would he really most like to accomplish (and remembered for) assuming that he had the powers necessary to do so?

 as a corollary--

  what constitute Poutine's major rivals to his exercise of political power?  Is he still opposed by a powerful group of corporate interests inside Russia?  Other political actors, groups? Some actual or potential resistance from within the military?  A public opinion which constrains his actions?
