Red Notice by Bill Browder


RednoticeDid you know that:

  • in 2012 Vladimir Putin's regime announced a proposed ban that would become law, prohibiting American families from adopting Russian orphans?
  • this ban is one of the ways in which Putin retaliated against the Magnitsky Act, a bipartisan bill passed by the US Congress and signed into law by President Obama, that imposes sanction on Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky?
  • Sergei Magnitsky was Bill Browder's lawyer who helped uncover the deep corruption of the Russian government that stole money from its very own people?
  • Putin's regime captured, tortured and ultimately killed Sergei Magnitsky who refused to retract the truth about the corruption that he helped uncover about his country's kleptocratic regime?

I just finished reading one of the most harrowing books I've ever read: Red Notice by Bill Browder, which I first learned about through Katie Couric's podcast.

Do you want to better understand Russian history, the American political system, and the ongoing atrocities of Vladimir Putin and his regime? I recommend that you listen to the podcast and also read Red Notice. The most eye-opening, educational, horrifying and inspiring books I've ever read.

Horrifying because of realizing the long track record of the terror that Putin inflicts upon his enemies and how the current US President shadows the practices of this totalitarian regime and continues to align himself with Putin.

Inspiring because of humans (like Magnitsky and Browder and members of the US Congress and countless human rights activists) who refuse to back down from exposing the truth about terrorists like Putin.
