Yale Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld Urges Putin’s Regime to Release Evan Gershkovich

Evan Gershkovich, an American journalist working for the Wall Street Journal, has been detained in Russia

Putin’s Regime Must Release American Journalist Evan Gershkovich

New York ( — We highly recommend perusing the article ‘Putin can’t handle the truth: Why American journalist Evan Gershkovich, who was abducted for revealing Russia’s economic collapse, must be freed‘ published on Penned by the illustrious Lester Crown Professor in Management Practice and Senior Associate Dean at Yale School of Management, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the article examines the unprecedented level of hostility Putin’s regime has displayed towards the US, exemplified by the arrest and detention of Wall Street Journal reporter, Evan Gershkovich. Gershkovich’s reportage on the degradation of Russia’s economy and military industry has prompted his detention on baseless accusations of espionage on behalf of the US government. Gershkovich’s journalistic endeavors were reinforced by an assemblage of hard data, meticulously gathered by a research squad that tracked the steady deterioration of the Russian economy over the past year. The Russian economy is suffering from the cascading consequences of Putin’s reliance on mendacity and cannibalization as economic strategies, which, when coupled with burgeoning military expenditures, produced a budget deficit of over 2% last year. In this context, Gershkovich’s report that “Russia’s economy is starting to come undone” bears no exaggeration. Putin’s targeting of Gershkovich constitutes a menacing escalation of his animosity towards the US, and we cannot allow this miscarriage of justice to go unchallenged.
