    Introducing: Londongrad

    Introducing: Londongrad

    How the Lebedevs partied their way to power is a 6 part series investigating two men - who are at the heart of the story of Britain opening its doors to Russian oligarchs. Alexander Lebedev is a former KGB officer. He’s the man with the money and - as we’ll see - with the plan. Alexander’s son, Evgeny, rose from a fixture on the social scene to a seat in the House of Lords. He did it with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s help and against the advice of the security services. There’s never been a story quite like it.

I sighed with relief when I heard that Luis Eduardo survived,but was so wrought with sadness when Emmanuel passed. This podcast is excellently well done, and the diligence of tortoise media shows.
