Jamison Firestone was working as a lawyer in Russia during the uncovering of a $230 million tax fraud case, the largest in Russian history. This discovery would lead to Jamison’s colleague Sergei Magnitsky’s death. The Magnitsky affair prompted countries around the world, led by the U.S., to pass the Magnitsky Act, a law sanctioning human rights offenders and allowing seizing of assets and banning entry to the U.S.
The Kremlin undermines institutions at home and around the world, while at the same time, Russia enjoys a permanent seat on the UN Security Council and many international organizations, including Interpol and the Council of Europe. To talk about these issues and how to encourage better behavior by the Kremlin, one must understand Vladimir Putin and his regime. The Magnitsky Affair provides a view of how the Kremlin operates, Putin’s intentions and how Putin’s regime might be approached. The conversation will be moderated by ASU's Keith Brown.
