Marking the Centenary of Academician Andrei Sakharov: Panel discussion (in English and Russian), 21 May | AllEvents.in Marking the Centenary of Academician Andrei Sakharov: Panel discussion (in English and Russian)

A theoretical physicist and one of the creators of the Soviet hydrogen bomb Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov was also an earnest advocate for ending the Cold War a dissident and a devout defender of human rights in the Soviet Union. His scrupulous sense of fairness clear and captivating logic and unselfish dedication to the cause of peace and justice made many feel that he was the “conscience of the people”. Sakharov died two years before the collapse of the Soviet Union. Had he lived longer who knows – the course of events might have taken a different turn.
