Chance For Life is delighted to invite friends to the event that is being held as part of the Читай Россию/Read Russia programme. The Time of Berezovsky is based on a series of interviews with dozens of people who knew Berezovsky well at various times of his life, including Valentin Yumashev, Alexander Voloshin, Mikhail Fridman, Anatoly Chubais, Sergei Dorenko, Vladimir Pozner, and others. Aven’s iInterlocutors present answers to his questions about why Berezovsky became a figure who embodied the important features of his time – the time of the emergence of the second Russian capitalism.
