And I spend a lot of money to help you, the Brits, if I may say so, to understand that Putin's Russia is dangerous. The second part - I once tried to organize a political party in Russia. Three of us - Yushenkov, Golovlyov and I - we came to France. They were then deputy of the Russian parliament, and we decided to create a party. Two of them were killed, and I'm still here. And then I realized that such open opposition does not work, at least in my case. So I decided to use another option. I do support some opposition in Russia through the Foundation for Civil Liberties. .. "
