Interview with Anastasia in Moscow (Joshenka)

I actually had two interviews with Anastasia, who was my professor at МГУ in Moscow. It took place in one of the classrooms and it was probably the best interview that I’ve had so far, as the quality was excellent, with the room being well-lit, the window being closed to keep the sound from the street silent in the recording, and my relationship with the professor creating an atmosphere comfortable enough that she spoke for a long time in response to each question. This was also a very unique and interesting opportunity to get perspective on a particular soviet monument from someone who lives in a city that isn’t where the monument is located. And despite not having much knowledge particularly on the navy or the fleets, it was a very productive interview and probably the highest quality of the ones that I’ve taken so far.
