Bill Browder on Putin's Kleptocracy & A "Cold War Against Crime" Irish Times Inside Politics

"Putin and his regime are going to become more hostile, malicious and deadly to the rest fo the world, and we need to understand this".

Since the murder in Russia of his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, Bill Browder has been on a mission to highlight and punish corruption and crime in that country and beyond. He is in Dublin this week to push for the introduction here of a law to mirror the US Magnitsky Act that penalises Russian officials by targeting their assets. He talks to Hugh about Vladimir Putin, the Russian regime and the decade-long campaign that he believes has placed his life at real risk.
