Kasparov versus Putin

Putins_Russia.jpg
As chairman of the "2008: Free Choice" Committee, Garry Kasparov hopes to mobilize the opposition and is planning a major opposition conference in Russia to coincide with the G8 summit. He’s interviewed by Fareed Zakaria to discuss the “real Russia”: the degradation of civil rights and press freedoms, corruption, and persecution of political dissidents. I salute the courage of this great sportsman.
