Event: Finnish-Russian Civic Forum 2007

Next week a special program will be held on July 3 and 4 titled “Human Rights and Democracy in Russia” as part of the Finnish-Russian Civic Forum 2007 in Helsinki. Grigory Pasko, special correspondent to this blog, will be speaking on a press freedom panel along with editors from Novaya Gazeta and Limonka, and Yuri Schmidt, a member of the Khodorkovsky defense team, will be speaking on rule of law. The Civic Forum also maintains an English blog here – featuring an interview with Garry Kasparov yesterday.
