Garry Kasparov mastered the game of chess to become a world-famous champion. These days he’s facing a much tougher opponent: the corrupt leadership of Russia.
Kasparov, a leader of the Russia opposition, spoke at Heritage about why Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is immune to the Obama administration’s reset strategy. In an interview at Heritage before his speech, Kasparov said Obama’s approach was misguided.

Kasparov, author of “How Life Imitates Chess,” said he’s had difficultly applying the same strategy to Russian politics, simply because the leadership there follows no rules.
Still, he expressed optimism about a future change in Russian leadership following the Arab Spring and toppling of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and death of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya.
