While former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly launches her new show Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly on NBC with an interview with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, 60 Minutes will air an interview between Lesley Stahl and Vladimir Kara-Murza, a Russian journalist and pro-democracy activist who claims he has been poisoned twice because he has spoken out against the Kremlin. Stahl reports on the “unfortunate fate that stalks some of Putin’s most prominent critics” involving “unsolved shootings, suspicious suicides and poisonings.”
After running for a seat in the Russian parliament in 2016 (and losing), Kara-Murza made Nemtsov, a documentary film about his colleague, the late politican Boris Nemtsov, an outspoken critic of Putin who was assassinated near the Kremlin on February 27, 2015. Kara-Murza is showing Nemtsov (which has English subtitles) at U.S. colleges including Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Pennsylvania, alma mater of President Trump. 60 Minutes at 7pm on CBS.
