In Slon, David Satter is asked for his views on why he was expelled from Russia:
[There are] a large number of journalists who almost every day express opinions that are very critical of the policy of Russia and its leadership. Why were you picked on?
– I can’t answer that question. You can find out from the experts. What can I say? I’m the only one who wrote about the buildings (he is referring to the apartment bombings – Slon), the most important question in post-Soviet history. Maybe that’s the reason. Maybe it’s something else.
