Mikhail Zygar understands that being a journalist in Putin’s Russia is a dangerous job. For 21 of his colleagues, it has been fatal. Mikhail was Editor-in-Chief of Dozhd, Russia’s only independent TV station, before it faced unrelenting attacks from the Kremlin. His book, All the Kremlin’s Men, is an unprecedented series of interviews with Putin’s inner circle. It provides us with a surprising view of Russian politics that has made it a bestseller in Russia. With Jeff Sparrow.
