Ep. 42

How are you affected by the war?

Leaders Talk – with Anna Kirin. Anna Kirin is a business Leader, the president of CBSD thunderbird, an organization that educates young Russian leaders, and serves on the board of the American chamber of Commerce. She is also a very brave woman who takes a risk to talk to us about the war in Ukraine in this podcast.

In this episode of Leaders Talk, she talks with Karsten about her role in CBSD and how she became the president of this organization. She tells us about how she started her life as a refugee, grew up in the US and then came back in her twenties to rediscover Russia. She also gives us another inside view of the war, talks about how Russia has evolved as a country and reflects on whether the effects of the sanctions are going in the wrong direction.
