Know That You Can Be Free
by Елена Иванова
In 2006 Meg, my life partner, helped me flee Russia: an increasingly hateful and oppressive country. We started our escape in Kiev, Ukraine in March 2006 and completed it in April 2007, arriving safely in Victoria, Canada after an ocean crossing journey of 10 months.
In this interview I, the woman she helped escape Russia, ask Meg questions I've wondered about for years.
