How Garry Kasparov sees the chess match between Russia and the West

Garry Kasparov, a Russian opposition leader who was ranked as the world’s best chess player for most of 20 years, has a problem with the West’s response to Vladimir Putin and warns of the dangers of Russia’s global influence. The title of his new book – Winter Is Coming – is a conscious play on the famous Game of Thrones TV and book series and the sense of darkness stalking the world.
