Abstract. The consequences of the 2011-2012 electoral cycle in Russia became a huge blow for the dominance of the ruling group (“regime”) and contributed to the rise of its political rivals (“opposition”). Why did this unexpected outcome occur “here and now”? This article focuses on the key role of political actors, their resources and their strategies in this political struggle. The opposition successfully capitalized strategic miscalculations of the regime and despite Putin’s return to power it undermined the status quo from within, even though it is still unable to overthrow the regime as of yet.
