Program Description

Event Details

Russia is the largest country on Earth. It is a vast empire stretching across Central Asia from Poland to the Sea of Japan. It is ruled today, as always, from the Kremlin in Moscow. For centuries, its history and geography have regulated the lives of ordinary Russians and the international politics of the government. 

As an international lawyer, historian, and genealogist, British citizen Thomas Tyrrell presents a unique perspective of current events to our SWFL community.
