In Moscow for a couple of days. It has been snowing, unseasonably, grid-locking the traffic and turning the pavements into ice rinks. This is not a city designed for pedestrians. Nonetheless I have managed to cram in some great meetings. Breakfast this morning with Charles Clover, the Financial Times’ Bureau Chief over here. Along with updating me on the political situation, Charles recommended I visit the Tretyakov State Gallery if I had a spare moment. I did (this afternoon), and it is fabulous. My highlight was Vasily Vereshchagin’s breathtaking ‘The Vanquished, The Officer for the Dead’. See below.
