22. PUTIN’S RUSSIA
Samuel Ramani, Marina Litvinenko, John Sweeney
Tuesday 27th June 19:30 (60 Min)
Putin has been continuously in power as President or Prime Minister of Russia since 1999. He rules with an increasingly autocratic and iron grip and has made no secret of his regret at the end of the USSR. But what is it like living in Putin’s Russia? How does he control the state and the people? And what do ordinary Russians really think of him? In this discussion our experts will provide a fascinating insight into a country about which most people in the UK know remarkably little.
General Sir Richard Shirreff was scheduled to participate in this panel but has been asked by the Ukraine Ministry of Foreign Affairs to speak at a conference in Kiev on the same evening. Our panellists are Samuel Ramani, Marina Litvinenko and John Sweeney,
