FERREIRA, Marcos Farias  e  TERRENAS, João. Good-bye, Lenin! Hello, Putin! The geo-identitarian discourse in today’s Russian foreign policy. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Polít. [online]. 2016, n.20, pp.43-78. ISSN 2178-4884.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0103-335220162002.

In this article we set out to explore the mutual constitution of post-soviet identity and geopolitical referents serving as the discursive ground for Putin’s foreign policy. We further explore the role of the geo-identitarian discourse in justifying the recomposition of the post-Soviet space after 2000 and the promotion of a new international order. Methodologically, we resort to a dialectics of sorts between “high” and “low” geopolitics in order to uncover the interdependence of national narratives produced by political power (top-down) and society (bottom-up). We come to the conclusion that the plasticity and hybridity of the Russian symbolic grammar has allowed Putin to define a pragmatic and assertive foreign policy intent both on regaining international status for Russia and consolidating the domestic coalition of interests led by him.
