Martin Sixsmith - Orlando Figes

Russia - Facing the Unknown

Venue: St Peter’s Church

14 September 2022 10:00 am

No other country has reimagined its own past so frequently, or endured such vast differences in ruling ideologies, as Russia. As we once again experience war in Europe, two leading writers ask what do we know of Russia and the man who leads it, how did this conflict happen and what can the West do to challenge the Kremlin? Orlando Figes is the UK’s leading historian on Russia whose latest book, The Story of Russia, gives an account of the myths and ideologies that have shaped the country’s past - and how they inform its present. The Sunday Times bestselling author Martin Sixsmith exposes in The Russia Conundrum, written with the former oil tycoon and richest man in Russia Mikhail Khodorkovsky, what lies behind the mask of Vladimir Putin, and what we must do to pave the way for a better future. Talking to Julia Wheeler
