Gary Kasparov’s interview

I like this guy! I think this video is a perfect introduction to Russian politics (from an opposition’s perspective of course). Kasparov gives some of the keys of the current struggles in today’s Russia and makes it clear for an American public (not that easy I guess!!!)

I particularly love his way to take examples out of American politics to explain his point, it’s brilliant (but who would say Kasparov is not one of the most brilliant mind of our time).

Once that said, I also think that unfortunately, Kasparov has a very American perception of politics. I’m affraid he’s been out of the country for too long and that the standards he promotes can not fit with Russia.

I and many people in Russia who respect and admire Kasparov, believe that he goes too far comparing Putin’s administration to the Soviet era.

Kasparov is however a very ambitious man and we shall continue hearing about him in the months and years to come.
