The Meridian Podcast

Friday, 26 March 2021 - 38 minutes

This week, Ollie and Eve host a discussion about Alexei Navalny - a Russian investigator and political figure who is an outspoken critic of Vladimir Putin. They are joined by Leeza Isaeve (@leeza_i) and Alexandra Brody, both of whom have Russian heritage and expertise on the issue of opposition in the Russian political system.

In the episode, the panel discusses Navalny's poisoning, his subsequent arrest and the way in which he and his team use social media to promote public protest. We hope you enjoy!
