Jon Krister Hellevig (26th February 1962 – 26th May 2020) has died…

I met this man once many years ago. It was before he fervently threw himself into the media as he defended Russia…

Jon Krister Hellevig (26th February 1962 – 26th May 2020) was a Finnish lawyer and businessman who worked in Russia since the early 1990s. He was the managing partner of the Moscow-based law company Hellevig, Klein & Usov Llc. Hellevig wrote books about Russian legislation and society and wrote columns for Russian media.

I sit here this morning kinda sad. He was younger than me, yet I easily could have been dead the same as him at his age and even much earlier. He was 58 at the time he left us…

I read all his writings and kept up weekly on what I could find new as he wrote. He wrote and worked tirelessly to the end. I have posted some of his work in the past, dozens of articles posted in his early writings, to help him garner a foothold into the hate being spread about Russia. It worked and he became a name of honesty and accuracy about the situation of Russian situations. It was nice having someone who knew Russia as I do and wrote about the hate being pushed at Russia. I respected his work…

Jon Hellevig loved Russia every bit as much as I do. For that, I will always remember him…

RIP Jon, you and your work will be remembered and future thoughts by you missed...
