Care-Giving Dynamics w/ Artur Holavins

For this third interview in the series, I sat down with Artur Holavins to talk about care-giver and care-receiver dynamics in Russia. We discussed the concept of active ageing in Russia, how funding obligations influence modes of care, and the extent to which care-givers are ‘objectified’ by NGOs.
