Video: Khodorkovsky Discusses Democracy at Václav Havel Library

October 15, 2014

After a promising period in the ’90s, when Russia seemed to be working towards a liberal political system, there was a major turn. The process of political regression finds its expression in the person of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the best known prisoner of conscience in the history of modern Russia. Does Russia stand any chance of becoming a democratic country? This exclusive interview with Mikhail Khodorkovsky was conducted by journalist and Václav Havel Library Board of Trustees Chairman Jan Macháček. The event in English was organised in cooperation with the Forum 2000 conference. Visit the Václav Havel library website here, and see a photo gallery of the event here.
