Paul Goble

Staunton, December 11 – Most people today are focusing on bidding farewell to Lyudmila Alekseyeva, the great human rights activists that Vladimir Putin is trying to coopt as one of his own, or to the centenary of the birth of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, whose slogan “live not by lies” played an essential role in unmasking and then destroying the Soviet system.
