Guest speaker: Kalle Kniivilä
Kalle works as a journalist for the main newspaper in Malmö, Sydsvenska Dagbladet, and recently became a prize-winning author. He published his first book, Putin's People, in 2014, which won the Kanava prize for non-fiction book of the year. It was followed in 2015 by Crimea is ours.
Kalle will present two talks at the conference, both of which relate to his books:
- Homoj de Putin: about the nature of the Russian regime, the reasons for its popular support, and the changes which took place associated with the annexation of Crimea
- Nepoj de Sovetio: about the history, current situation, and political attitudes and outlook of the Russian-speaking minorities in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
