Chuck Spinney: Deconstructing Russia & Avoiding False Narratives — Interview with Segei Ivanov, Chief of Staff to Vladimir Putin
Below is the abbreviated transcript of a wide-ranging interview with Segei Ivanov, chief of staff to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Ivanov, a former KGB officer, is a long-time colleague of Mr. Putin dating back to Leningrad in the 1970s. The interview was conducted in Russian and translated by Kathrin Hille for the Financial Times. The summary analysis of this interview by the editors of the Financial Times can be found at this link.
