Redirected from Vladimir Posner). Vladimir Vladimirovich Pozner (Russian: Влади́мир Влади́мирович По́знер; born 1 April 1934) is a French-born Russian-American journalist and broadcaster best known in the West for his television appearances representing and explaining the views of the Soviet Union during the Cold War. He was memorable as a spokesman for the Soviets in part because he grew up in the United States and speaks English, Russian and French fluently.

Vladimir Pozner is a legendary Russian journalist, famous for literally bridging the US and the Soviet Union in the years of the Cold Wa. For the Pozner family this meant regular visits by FBI agents and a loss of friends. Pozner Sr. was fired. Géraldine had a nervous breakdown. The future famous journalist was coming home from school covered in bruises: the other kids made a contribution to the fight against the red peril. The Pozners tried to leave for France again, but someone reported to the French Foreign Office about Pozner Sr. being a Soviet spy and he could not get a visa.

So the Pozners moved in 1948 to the Soviet sector of Berlin where Pozner senior was offered a position with SovExportFilm, an international distributor of Soviet films. At some point Pozner junior claimed to have stayed behind in New York, attending Columbia College between 1950 and December 1953; however, there appears to be no record of him at Columbia. Currently he tells of attending a Russian military-style high school in Berlin run by the Soviet Military Administration during that time.

Pozner was a prominent journalist at the time of the coup that ousted Gorbachev and he gives a good account of the events of those days on the barricades, but he has a tendency to engage in far too many flashbacks and always at the most inoportune moments. If he had stuck with a linear narrative, and left out about half of the tongue twisting names (you'll need an Excel spreadsheet to keep all the minor players straight), it could have been an excellent book.

In the retrospect - what nomenklatura journalist can say ? Nothing just write about it. With the passage of the time , now when Kievan Russ - Eastern Ukraine and Scotland are struggling for its identity what to ask the expert who on the US comedy queen Joan Rivers on her show made his identity of Inside Man . nevertheless Mr.Pozner book is more real than think tank economic analyse - it is his perspective from his orbit. For it he is out , those who make Russia as Grey economy as Russia the Motherland or Fatherland they stayed and they remain real. What unites us is the cloudy mirror of reality what people as Pozner cannot represent as their. 2 moments surprised me on his book - first his dislike to hear complain of ordinary people in their lack of information - their instinctive suspicion towards jews - anti-Semitism he says . Well why ? When one is called by his enlighted friends Slav he always say - no I am not . When we are all labelled Eastern European = something from low downstairs he can always refute - No I am Pozner made in France with Jewish world council background. The second moment is when in the book he honestly says in interview with Co-op restaurant operator - And why you Mr. Pozner have not started an economy or initiated enterprise on your own? was it to under your intellectual no kosher standard - that he said - that he has not on it. The book is as we all are better to say about the others while keeping our own quality private. I like that book as it is . Grammar and extra curriculum quotations are nice refreshing for time when we stood for samizdat and Solzenitzin was something what Mr. Pozner could not represent by his substitutes. Now when he is in Free world - how much is he free ? as that Spanish guerrilla fighter from the page 114? There are 2 books what I would recommend to Mr. Pozner to contemplate to translate for Russian people One is- "our word is our weapon " from subcomandante insurgente Marcos and second is Other Losses by James Bacque. Lenin said they say - Ucit sa Ucit sa Ucit sa- I would say Cognite Cognite Cognite . Nothing wrong on Pamyat and instinct of ordinary people to say their NO. If all would be as Mr.Pozner leading authority on TV show was we would already be in somebody else Gulag -IMF Nato run Gulag.

To have this nincompoop offer an exegesis of the collapse of the Soviet Union is tantamount to having Kenny Gee explain harmonic patterns in Charlie Parker's "Bopology". There are plenty of serious books on the subject, incidentally two
American authors Stephen Cohen and Peter Reddaway present serious socio/economical/political analyses, understanding of multifarious cultural phenomena, and above all else a sincere empathy for the plight of the Russian people.
It would be appropriate here to recall a thinker who had the most profound knowledge of this enigmatic (pardon the cliche) country, the father of "containment policy" George Kennan. Pozner's statement that Russia's conversion to Eastern Orthodox Christianity was a tragic mistake that had thwarted the development of the Russian polity says it all - ignorance and rabid russophobia. Pozner has always had an uncanny ability at temporizing, both in the days of the good old comrades and in the free-for-all kleptocracy.
