advert. An article in Vedomosti by Olga Churakova was entitled “If not Trump, then Putin.” Churakova seems relieved that Putin has “reclaimed his leadership” in mentions by the mass media. For weeks, in January and into February, Putin had fallen behind Trump in regard to number of mentions in the mass media in Russia.
