Money and culture: how cultural institutions became Russia's offshore

Lviv BookForum 2022, 

The Pandora Papers were the biggest ever leak of offshore data concerning the financial secrets of the rich and powerful, chiefly concerning property acquisition. But can cultural institutions work as offshore companies, and to what extent is Russian capital present in cultural institutions and activities abroad? British journalists Misha Glenny, Oliver Bullough and Catherine Belton are authors of, respectively, McMafia; Butler to the World: How Britain became the servant of tycoons, tax dodgers, kleptocrats and criminals; and Putin's People: How the KGB Took Back Russia and Then Took On the West. Chaired by the TV presenter and Speaker of the Ukrainian Women's Congress Vadym Karpiak.
