Great interview, thank you.
Pearl clutching about not being able to criticize Putin in Russian state media — what’s the point? Russia never claimed to be a liberal democracy.
You can’t criticize Orbán in Hungarian state media.
It’s simply not how politics is done in these countries.
You obviously didn’t listen, since nothing like this was discussed.
You obviously forgot what was discussed.
No, you are mischaracterizing the point of the conversation.
