Named in memory of Vladislav Nikolaevich List’ev (1957–1995), a talented Russian television journalist who fell victim to hired assasins. His clever, benevolent, analytical series of telecasts ‘Vzglyad’ (View), ‘Tema’ (Subject) and ‘Chas pik’ (Peak hour) were popular among millions of people. They had a great influence on the public consciousness of Russians in the post-totalitarian era. (M 25229)
