Russia Bans Bill Browder’s New Book
“Red Notice” is a Searing Expose Featuring Putin’s Involvement in the Cover up of Sergei Magnitsky’s Murder
Press Release. January 29, 2015 – On February 3rd 2015, Bill Browder, CEO and founder of Hermitage Capital Management, launches an explosive book about Russia entitled “Red Notice: A true story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice” (UK edition: “Red Notice, How I Became Putin’s Number One Enemy” published on 5thFebruary.)
“Red Notice” describes Browder’s fight against corruption and impunity in Russia and is a devastating expose ofhow Putin and his regime will do anything to illegally acquire wealth, including torture and cover-up of murder.
"Anybody who previously thought that Putin is a normal leader or that Russia is a normal country will think otherwise after reading this book," says Bill Browder.
“Red Notice” will be published in 14 countries, but has so far been blocked by all major Russian publishers.
Numerous Russian publishing houses, ranging from Eksmo to Alpina, have avoided involvement in this book, for apparent fear of reprisal from the Putin regime.
Members of Pussy Riot, a Russian punk group who have been jailed for an anti-Putin protest, described the Kremlin position on Browder in their endorsement of “Red Notice” by saying:
“Bill Browder has become one of the most sincerely hated men in the Kremlin over the years – and that is something to be incredibly proud of… This book shows the difference that one person can make when they refuse to back down, as told by a fellow soldier in the battle to hold Putin to account."
A Russian version of “Red Notice” will be available in the Russian language and published outside of Russia.
"This marks the return of the days of Soviet “samizdat” when books critical of the Soviet government were banned. Many were published abroad, and then had to be secretly copied, circulated by hand and passed from reader to reader," says Browder.
Some of the Soviet Union’s most acclaimed ‘samizdat’ authors were Varlam Shalamov and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, both former inmates of Stalin’s gulag, who drew global attention to Joseph Stalin’s forced labor camps, where millions of Soviet citizens were summarily interned and many ultimately died.
