Professor Bill Bowring’s guest this week answering his 25 questions is Sergei Lukashevsky, director of the Sakharov Centre in Moscow. The Sakharov Centre is a museum and cultural centre devoted to preserving the legacy of physicist and Nobel Prize winning human rights activist Andrei Sakharov. The Centre was founded in 1996 through the efforts of Andrei Sakharov’s widow Elena Bonner and other friends and colleagues of Sakharov. Earlier in his career, Sergei Lukashevsky worked for the Moscow Helsinki Group. In 2004 he was a founding member of the Demos Centre, an organisation devoted to research on human rights issues. In December 2008 he became director of the Sakharov Centre. You can watch the video below or on YouTube.
