Anne Applebaum: From Stalin to Putin – the legacy of totalitarianism | SRF Kultur

All quiet on the Eastern front? Putin's controlled democracy, war in Ukraine, right-wing populism in Hungary and Poland. Historian and winner of the Pulitzer prize Anne Applebaum analyses to what extent today current developments in Eastern Europe are still determined by its totalitarian past.

How does a totalitarian system form? What are its features? What influence does the legacy of Stalinism have on today's global politics? These are central questions for historian and publicist Anne Applebaum. As author of standard works on the Gulag system, the formation of the Iron Curtain and Stalin's famine war against Ukraine, the Pulitzer prize winner analyses current developments: the war between Ukraine and Russia, the election of actor Volodymyr Zelensky as president of Ukraine, through to Russia's interference in US politics.
