Viktor Yerofeyev on Putin and the War

Repeatedly, Russian writer Viktor Vladimirovich Yerofeyev publicly criticized Putin and Russian politics.

His new book is called "The Great Gopnik" and is about Russian President Putin, whom he met personally several times a long time ago. But for Yerofeyev, the war is not only Putin's war – Europe, he says, has also made mistakes that contributed to the current situation. 3sat/Kulturzeit and rbb Inforadio spoke with the writer about the war in Ukraine, Putin as well as his intentions and his own future.

Viktor Yerofeyev is currently staying with his family in Schloss Wiepersdorf.
