Always learn so much about Russia and its culture with Vadim. He provides insights and details that are so literate and enlightening. Would love to do a tour with him in the future, if the current situation is ever resolved.
This seminar is part of a very informative series on Soviet and post-Soviet leaders. Understanding the political history of the USSR and Russia has never been more important. Historian Vadim Malinovsky is a superbly knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy interpreter of this history for a western audience. With him, history is never dull. We see it in action and very much in context. Highly recommended!
I am hooked on Vadim's russia! this conversation about Gorbachev makes me realize that life in the Ussr was no picnic and that turning the country into a democracy needed a PLAN! and there was none!
