Up until March 2022, he was a founding editor-in-chief of Russian opposition news TV-channel Dozhd. Even after his project of a life time was shut down by Russian government, Zygar left the country and is keeping up with his great work interviewing such people like John Malkovich, Steven Pinker, Ralph Fiennes and many more. It’s all about the Russia-Ukraine situation, of course. Everything boils down to it.
