It's been an interesting week here in Helsinki, where I have been attending the Finnish-Russian Civic Forum. In addition to showing my short documentary film on the Nord Stream project (which produced a spirited debate), I had the opportunity to speak with the leader of the United Civic Front, the grandmaster Garry Kasparov, who had come to Finland to support his friend for a Europarliament election. I took the opportunity to ask Garry for his thoughts on Russia's ambitious pipeline projects.
This interview from May reached EE Online today from a third party and merits reading still, as postscript to the recent Obama Moscow visit. It is posted on Robert Amsterdam’s blog:
