Soviet Union

Final Exam Guide
Section 1: Short answer. 15 questions, 2 points each. Based on lecture material post-mid term. You will have 25 minutes to complete this section
Example questions:
Several of the post-Soviet states have experienced color revolutions since the collapse of the Soviet Union. What color was Ukraine’s 2004 Revolution?
During the 1990s, Yeltsin told Russia’s federal regions to “take as much sovereignty as you can stomach.” What steps did Putin take to bring the regions back under central control?
Section 2: Longer answer. Choose to answer 4 questions from a choice of 5. Each answer worth 5 points. You should be writing about 200 words for each answer. You will have one hour to complete this section. Based on lecture material and 5 Pilot readings: Political Graft: The Russian Way; Treisman, D. (2013). Can Putin keep his grip on power?. Current History, 112(756), 251-258; Pilot: Why the Ukraine Crisis Is the West’s Fault: The Liberal Delusions That Provoked Putin,” Foreign Affairs 93 (September–October 2014) What The Kremlin is Thinking; Countering Color Revolutions
Example question:
According to John Mearsheimer, what were the “liberal delusions” that provoked Putin? Do you share the author’s view that the crisis in Ukraine was the fault of the West? What should the West have done differently in your view?
Final Essay (Due by 5pm Dec 12th). Worth 50 points
READ FRAGILE EMPIRE
Russia went from total government/state control during Soviet times, to the almost complete absence of functioning government/state during the 1990s, to something else under Putin. How “fragile,” is the Russia depicted in Judah’s book “Fragile Empire”? In which ways is it fragile? How has Putin attempted to strengthen Russia and with what degree of success? Does the fact that Russia did not evolve into the sort of liberal democracy envisaged by many in the West mean that Russia and the Putin administration pose a threat or challenge to the West? If not, then why have Western relations with Russia deteriorated since 2000? If so, then what sort of threat, and how great a threat? Soviet Union.
