* LECTURE IN PROFESSOR PILSHCHIKOV’S GE COURSE. RUSSIAN 90A
In light of current political events, when the Russian Federation is often mentioned in news reports within the contest of the Trump-Russia investigation, students at UCLA often raise questions relating to contemporary Russia. The majority of these questions concern developments inside the country (which usually do not get a sufficient news coverage). To explain the roots of Russian autocratic tendencies, we invited Dmitry Bykov, a leading Russian public intellectual, to comment on the peculiarities of Russian civilization through the prism of its history and to answer questions that students might have about the way Russian history and Civilisation before 1917 play out in the present.
