On and from Russia, Straight Talk

by Jay Nordlinger

Vladimir Kara-Murza is the Russian democracy leader who was poisoned. Twice. Twice, he was near death, and twice, he came back. And he is still at it: still pressing for democracy in Russia. He is exceptionally brave.

I wrote about him earlier this year in a three-part series: I, II, and III.

This week, he was at the Oslo Freedom Forum in Norway. I sat down for a podcast with him, a Q&A, here. We talked about some vital issues: Putin, Russia, the West, “fake news,” and so on. From Kara-Murza, you will get eloquent talk, and erudite talk, for he is deeply knowledgeable, and an intellectual. But you will also get straight talk — straight talk from someone who has put his neck on the line.

Extraordinary. Again, here.
