Steve was quoted in a Financial Times podcast about a prominent Russian banker who received asylum in the United States. Regarding the asylum seeker, Steve noted that “it may be that he did multiple things, some of which were bad, but he still may have a well-founded fear of persecution because he did associate with the opposition leader in Russia. Leontiev was lucky. He spoke English. He had an attorney to represent him. And he had a lot of evidence and the circumstances of where he came from and the timing probably all helped to allow him to win asylum.” Listen to the podcast here.
