COVER STORY JANUARY 31, 2014
In our upcoming cover story (available online Sunday evening), Julia Ioffe travels to Moscow weeks before the Winter Olympics. Ioffe writes, "Two years ago, I watched a vibrant opposition come closer to toppling Putin than anyone could have imagined. But when the president’s fist came down, crushing all dissent, it seemed that the golden moment had passed. So when I returned to Moscow this winter, why did I find Putin more vulnerable than ever?"
