What Lies Beneath – The Kendrick White Affair


Kendrick White is an American veteran of business in Russia, and was Vice-Rector of Innovation at Lobachevsky State University in Nizhny Novgorod. He was removed from that post in late June 2015, following a TV programme on the main state-owned channel, which said that his presence at the university was unacceptable. The only reason given was that he had reportedly replaced pictures of Russian academics with American ones. More recently, it has been confirmed that Mr White has a new job at the university as head of the Centre of Innovation, and the change in his status was due to a reorganisation.
