FREEDOM RESEARCH TV. Russia's reality: a critic of Putin arrested for comparing Stalin to Hitler. He managed to escape the country merely by chance.

Russian opposition activist Leonid Gozman's first-hand experience sums up the situation of fundamental freedoms in Russia – or rather the lack of them.

Leonid Gozman, a psychologist by training, is a liberal Russian politician who served as an advisor to Prime Ministers Anatoly Chubais and Yegor Gaidar and later became a fierce critic of President Vladimir Putin and his regime. Last year, Gozman was arrested for a reason that was essentially laughable. After his release, he managed to leave the country. He now lives in Berlin, Germany, where he is working against Putin's regime. In June, he gave a presentation in Tallinn, Estonia, on the reality of Putin's regime. In this short clip, he explains how he managed to escape instead of being imprisoned.
