Vlog: Navalny and Strelkov, the disappointing debate that was what politics is all about

Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 19.51.22

Just a quick note that another in my sporadic series of vlogs is up on my YouTuble channel – you can find this one here. It’s a little longer than most, in part because I’m trying to tease out why Alexei Navalny chose to debate with nationalist militant and likely war criminal Igor Girkin (‘Strelkov’) and why what was a pretty dull debate stuck with me. Spoiler alert: the answer? Because in a way this is precisely what real politics are about, and that’s faintly encouraging.

  1. Also well worth a look, and more significant – the debate between Navalny and Chubais on Dozhd last year, hosted by Ksenia Sobchak – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsoIcQYlPxg
