Rome, June 17, 2022 – Alessandro Di Battista is leaving for the Russia, where he will remain at least a month and a half.

The idea of embarking on this journey was born in April, writes Di Battista, “after just over a month from the outbreak of the war, listening to the excellent correspondent Rai Marc Innaro talking to CartaBianca, I thought it was really interesting to understand what the Russians, in particular those who live outside the big cities, they think of the conflict, of Europe, of sanctions, of Putin, of the approach to China “. So” I started planning a trip to the deepest Russia. “In the video shot in Istanbul Di Battista mentions the film Gone with the Wind” by controversy frankly I do not care “and confirms” happy with the choices I made “.
