Russian higher education is facing a multitude of pressures from various directions. The entire system headed by the Ministry of Education and Research, strives to integrate into the European higher education space, individual universities are under pressure to maintain quality control, whilst facing budgetary pressures (Volkov, Livanov, Fursenko, 2007). At the same time the demographic situation in the country leads to shrinkage of the student body, whilst university funding follows each individual student (Denisova-Schmidt and Leontyeva, forthcoming). This puts HEIs under pressure to retain the current cohort of students at all costs. \ud \ud Although the pressures may appear similar to those faced in other national contexts by HEIs, the specific adaptations that universities and individual academic undertake, we argue, are quite unique to Russian context and hence, deserve special consideration. This paper will seek to explain how the constellation of pressures leads to formation of institutionally ingrained mechanisms that trap everyone involved in a perpetual limbo of ambivalence, unresolved conflicts and corruption. We question the role of leadership in the current context. How do Russian present realities shape the fundamental goals of leadership? What conceptualisations of leadership are most helpful in this context?
