Kuzin to Medvedev: Listen to LaRouche
Oct. 29, 2009 (EIRNS)Appearing in the commentary section of President Dmitri Medvedev's blog Oct. 27 was an open letter from Victor Kuzin, a Moscow lawyer, who was famous as a human rights activist in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Kuzin's letter refers to the report published in this week's issue of the weekly Zavtra, based on journalist Alexander Nagorny's interview of Lyndon LaRouche during the Rhodes Forum"Dialogue of Civilizations" in early October.
In addition to Medvedev's blog, Kuzin's letter has been posted on the commentary pages of Zavtra.
Kuzin was a co-founder of Democratic Union, the first political party formed in the Soviet Union, other than the Communist Party. Horrified by the assault on Russia under the Yeltsin regime's liberal economic reforms in the 1990s, Kuzin became an ardent opponent of the regime. From 1993 through 1996, he took part in international campaigns for the release of LaRouche from prison, and then for LaRouche's exoneration. His interview of LaRouche, done in November 1993 at the U.S. Federal prison facility in Rochester, Minn., continues to circulate on Russian websites to this day.
