Russia: Illarionov; Q&A With the New York Times

La Russophobe posts translation of an article by Andrei Illarionov, former economic policy advisor to Vladimir Putin, in which he writes: “A year and a half ago, it was a question of premonitions of a catastrophe. One and a half months ago – prologue to a catastrophe. And now – its beginning.” At the New York Times Blog, La Russophobe‘s questions are among the 145 others posed so far to the newspaper's Moscow correspondents about “the meaning of the [Dec. 2] vote and the country’s political future.”
