Russian journalist Alexey Kovalyov discussed protests in Russia over Alexei Navalny, hacking, hits on soldiers, and more with a podcast I follow. You can read a Q&A session
he did on Reddit a couple of years ago.
The most interesting point to me is that Navalny is apparently more right-wing in his views than we in the west tend to associate with mass protests. Kovalyov described Putin as being to Navalny’s left. I had no idea.
“He is only being persecuted for his anti-corruption investigations.”
