Before I get down to actually writing, I’ve been considering the many ways I can outline my paper, the general flow of it. I have settled on the following:
It may be the History major in me, but I believe a description of how Russia became a democracy is necessary.
-Discuss briefly the democratic tendencies of the Soviet Union
-Discuss the transition for the USSR to Russian democracy
The main focus: The root of this paper will lie with Russian citizens, particularly protest.
-How democratic is Russia currently?
Pro-Putin protest. Anti-Putin demonstrations-those calling for democratic reforms.
This is just a rough outline of the paper’s flow. I hope by to create a more concrete outline by next week.
