Conversations on Russia

Boris Nemtsov

Oxford University Press

Boris Nemtsov was a liberal, pro-market politician who had served in a variety of roles since 1992: He was the young, innovative, reforming governor of Nizhny Novgorod, a region of about four million people; the key minister in charge of monopoly; the key minister in charge of energy; and a member of the upper house of Parliament (the council of Federation) in the early 1990s. He was active in Yeltsin's government until its resignation in August 1998, when the Russian ruble was hit with a financial crisis. The interview discusses issues concerning Putin's handling of economic and political decisions. Nemtsov also states his stand not only for democratic arrangements and freedom of speech but also for a market economy based on genuine competition, transparent rules, and private ownership of assets. He also suggested adequate representation in the Duma to recognize regional economic interests.
