Garry Kasparov’s St Petersburg Block

I recently wrote an article criticising Garry Kasparov for using the recent St Petersburg Metro attack to promote his book. Before I tell you the reaction of Kasparov, let’s have a look at how he’s portrayed in western media:

Telegraph: ‘human rights campaigner’

CNBC ‘pro-democracy activist’ (again)…
