Russia, Trump and the motives of Putin with Elizaveta Osetinskaya
Today I'm very happy to welcome my guest Elizaveta Osetinskaya.
We cover the media in Russia, Trump's reported connections to the Kremlin and Putin's role in the world.
Elizaveta Osetinskaya was until May 2016 chief editor of RBC Media Holding, Russia’s leading privately owned media company.
She and two other senior editors were abruptly fired a few weeks after RBC was the only major Russian news outlet to cover the Panama Papers’ revelation that a Russian businessman with ties to President Vladimir Putin had funneled billions of dollars through offshore accounts.
Before joining RBC, Osetinskaya was editor-in-chief of Forbes Russia, considered by many to be the only independent and reliable business magazine in Russia.
