Exclusive Interview with Russia’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson

Moscow — In a simple meeting room at the Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry building, Russia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova gave me a generous hour of her time in a conversation peppered with bemused laughter at Western allegations about Russia and clear frustration at the West’s incessant vilification of all things Russia.

Kidnapping as a tool of imperial statecraft?

[This column was written for the Unz Review] There is nothing new about empires taking hostages and using them to put pressure on whatever rebel group needs to reminded “who is boss”.
