H-Mideast Politics editor interviewed on Voice of Russia

He's too modest to mention it so I will: H-Mideast Politics editor Kevin DeJesus was recently interviewed on Voice of Russia. A fine example of H-Net editors also being field experts for the networks they edit.

When he's not being sought for his expert opinion, Kevin is also getting acclimated to H-Net's new environment on the Commons (as we all are) and will soon be back in the Editor's seat on H-Mideat Politics.
