The Invention of Russia: Arkady Ostrovsky - Antidote 2017
With pithy and insightful observations, journalist and author Arkady Ostrovsky examines today's political reality from the perspective of Putin's Russia in the award winning book The Invention of Russia. Tracking a clear path from Gorbachev to Yeltsin to Putin, he paints a beguiling history: Putin's rise was not an aberration, but a deliberate move, generated by careful control of the media and security services. Join Arkady as he takes a closer look at what is real, what is fake, and what is possible in today's new world order. Chaired by Emma Alberici.
