Past Event

Friday, 3 March 2017 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Return to Moscow with Tony Kevin

In 1969, a young and apprehensive Tony Kevin set off on his first diplomatic posting to Moscow at the height of the Cold War. Nearly 50 years on he returned alone, a private citizen aged 73, to discover Vladimir Putin’s Russia. 

On the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Tony Kevin invites you to see this great nation anew. He will explore the complex roots of Russian national identity and values, drawing on its tumultuous Soviet Communist past and its momentous thousand-year history.

Tony Kevin is the author of A Certain Maritime Incident: The Sinking of SIEV X and Reluctant Rescuers.
