(Not behind a paywall.)

In the interim that persists, Putin’s regime has attempted to straddle 
the difference between the old order and the new: seeking at once to 
refurbish assets and orientations that have depreciated but not lost all 
currency and, heedless of the hegemon, to embrace the markets that have 
downgraded them—running with the hare of a military cameralism and 
hunting with the hounds of a financial capitalism. The pursuit is a 
contradiction. But it is also a reflection of the strange, 
incommensurate position of Russia in the present international order, in 
which the regime is trapped with no exit in sight.
