If you follow the Academy on social media, then you know that Fiona Hill – former Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs on the National Security Council who testified at the impeachment hearings – wrote an essay for the Spring 2017 issue of Dædalus, Russia Beyond Putin. Hill’s essay “The Next Mr. Putin? The Question of Succession” can be accessed online in the volume edited by George W. Breslauer and Timothy J. Colton. In her essay, Hill considers potential successors and the possibilities of a transition from a hyperpersonalized presidency to a depersonalized system. The issue was released the year Putin turned 65 and on the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
