The one lawyer who didn’t leave Russia was Sergey. In spite of the clear actions by the police targeting all of our lawyers, he was sure that he was safe because he had never done anything wrong or illegal. He believed that the law of Russia would protect him. When Jamison Firestone, the head of the law firm Sergey worked for, encouraged him to leave Russia like the other lawyers, Sergey replied, “You watch too many movies, this isn’t the 1930’s.”Maybe not in some ways.
