Media and Association representing newspapers and new sites in Belarus. Welcome Hello. It's a pleasure to meet you today. Well, it's a pleasure to have you so there are two stories about what happened at the border. Do we know whether Kolesnikova was fleeing? As the government says she is or Was the government just trying to remove her from the country as faras. We know Maria didn't want to leave the country at all. So she was forced to go to the border, but then on the border, she just tore her passport in the small pieces, and she didn't refused to go to Ukraine. So as far as you know, Maria is still in Belarus, but nobody knows for sure. Where exactly Okay, Well, these protests have been going on for a month now. Lukashenko's government has rounded up thousands of demonstrators and recently it's tried targeting opposition leaders. How is that tactic working so far? Every step off the brutal detention or any kind of violence toward citizens is making our protests bigger and wider, say, still continuing to ask for the very simple things to have new friend for elections and to stop the brutality and violence on the means can belittle since treats and, of course to release the prisoners.

Please don't ask me to pronounce her name I did the best but we know who we're talking about cleft Cova Maria Kolesnikova is this very strong opposition figure I think I got that pronunciation right?

So here we hear of saying that along with Kolesnikova he decided to leave.

Quote found herself outside the vehicle officials here in Belarus suggest she was pushed by Your own colleagues. Kolesnikova. Is under forty.

I had to repeat people don't trust him anymore. They don't want anymore and they will want. Any. him to stay in volume. So that is a an uncompromising stance, but she is out of the country. Now, she got a chance to speak to the UN on Friday. Does she have much international support? Will a degree countries continued to say that they support the read the opposition or what she doesn't like that word perhaps but that's how it's often portrayed the other side with the exception of with the exception of Poland and Baltic countries Western nations are reluctant to antagonize Russia leading the opposition largely on their own, and this is another reason why Kolesnik arrest is important, she was one of the few opposition leaders actually still on the ground in Belarus most of the others in prison or outside the country and Russia is still supporting President Lukashenko. That's right. In fact, we heard an ominous sign that Russian forces will train with Belorussia troops starting later this week. Charles, thanks for the update. Always appreciate it. Thank you.

Addition of the big interview under moolah speaks to the prize-winning Generous Masha. Gessen. Now, a columnist for the New Yorker, the author spent over two decades covering the resurgence of totalitarianism in Russia. GESSEN's latest book surviving autocracy tons of Lens on the US. Let's hear it is very much like the line. I. Tried to walk in the new book about trump. There are two ways to tell the trump story trump came from outer space. He's a total anomaly in American politics, the Russians in salt him, and he is destroying everything that we hold. Dear, which is all true except for maybe the Russians installed it and then there's another way which is a minority view held by some people I respect very much like the political scientist. Corey. Robin who basically says he's just Republican president he is the natural continuation of Republican politics over the last however many generations. Something that we've seen before and all the wanted norms that she talked about that. He's supposedly destroying are just these norms of of your class privilege, which is also true right? Both of those things are true. The conditions for a trump were laid over in some ways over fifty years I'm counting back to JFK or in some ways over the last nine nine years, I'm counting back to nine eleven and yet trump is a special snowflake and. Someone who shares some of his qualities, but is not a deranged self obsessed. Malignant narcissist clown could have taken his place and so you know both of those things are possible. He is completely anomalous unlike anybody else albeit quite recognizable character he's also using the groundwork was laid for him. All right. So I I think of it as taking a quantum leap from a running start. I WANNA come back in a bit to the parallels between the two and the and the non parallels between the two which you do write about in the new book. You've written as you said extensively about Vladimir, Putin, most notably in your book Man Without a face do you know how much interest he has personally taken in your writing about him I do exactly zero. And I you know there is a very strange reason I know this. But. This is now ancient history but eight years ago I was fired from my job as editor in chief of Russia's Big Popular Science magazine for not sending a reporter to accompany Putin on his adventure hang gliding with a severe and cranes and I tweeted about it and Putin apparently saw it and. Called me and offered me my job and it wasn't his tail for back. But he doesn't realize that because he thinks if he likes something, he owns it. But as the meeting with Putin, was prepared to discuss that whole misadventure of mine it became clear to me that he was not briefed on high was and you know the reasons are very clear because he loved the magazine. I was editor. And probably at a certain point when he decided that he loved that magazine and this was during my tenure, somebody would have had to say to him but there's an issue with the editor and someone dropped the ball and actually know who it was and I know I know how that happened. They didn't notice that I was editor. And then when he wanted to meeting. Then that someone would have had to say to him by there's a problem and there's a book. And he would have had to then learn of the existence of the book. Wish also couldn't have been pleasant for the Messenger. So there was actually a lot of jockeying to avoid telling him I was. To, they basically told him nothing but that was a very interesting experience like he was told about my preferred name usage particularly in Russian. But he was not told that I was an American citizen, for example, something that I happen to understand because are meeting happened to fall on. September eleventh. And so I know there's no way he would have omitted mention of that. If he had known that was citizen and so on and certainly he didn't know about the but. What kind of conversation is possible to have with him but what do you talk about when you make President Putin? Well, we talked about the sincerity of his nature conservation efforts basically had two topics he wanted to tell me that he was. He really did want to say the Siberian cranes. It wasn't just hang gliding with them for show and that sympathize with my publisher for firing the for not sending a reporter. But he overreacted and he wanted to set things straight and so my agenda was to draw him a little bit about this showy gestures of his which was really fun and tell him that the publisher had not merely overreacted but violated the law. Russia has this great press law and this goes back to the topic of how well-designed institutions can be. Russia has a really great press law that was written in one, thousand, nine, hundred one that makes it illegal for the publisher to interfere in the editorial operations but you know who cares anyway when we got to the topic, the conversation was civil up until that point when we got to that topic, he said Okay I know what you're going to say thank you for coming in. Stood up, shook my hand and I was out there. Let's talk about trump. You wrote early on in two thousand sixteen for the New York review of books you'll rules for surviving autocracy. How well do you think that is held up when measured against three and a half years now Donald Trump Well that peace has held up unfortunately extremely well. You know that that piece was not a blueprint for politically resisting autocracy. It was very much a piece about psychic an intellectual survival, which is what I felt was in a position to do the the pieces are very funny history which has that like most people I know I went to an election party on November eighth, and then the party just kind of went sour. And everybody tried to slink away without saying goodbye to the hosts and as I was biking home, I started getting phone calls and text messages from various acquaintances asking, what do we do now which I thought was really ridiculous because why would you ask me what we do now I was living in exile and clearly like. Whatever I did was not had not worked out that well. But as long bike ride and I kept thinking. Okay. Is there anything that actually that I have learned right is there is something that goes into this kind of letter from the future that I can send to my friends and I thought I have learned something about. Living in this kind of reality and it was very clear. I've been from the trump campaign as American presidential campaigns are abseiling long. So we had had ample opportunity to observe him. It was very clear that that's the period we're entering, and I also knew what it was like to really try to resist something that you understand logically but you don't want to believe is happening, which is what we experienced in Russia with Putin for especially in the first few years. And I feared what experience with trump. Then, that was the also Russia guests and speaking to under Mueller on the big interview. Gessen's book surviving autocracy is published by Penguin Random House and it's out. Now do listen back to the full interview wherever you find your podcasts.
