Times Record interviews Warhola about Russia’s detention of Wall Street Journal reporter, Bowdoin graduate

The Times Record spoke to James Warhola, a University of Maine professor emeritus of political science, about Russia’s detention of Bowdoin College graduate and Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich. The reporter was arrested and accused of spying, which, according to the publication, was “just six days after the U.S. Department of Justice accused 37-year-old Russian national Sergey Vladimirovich Cherkasov of spying for his home country.” Warhola says he suspects “that it was a tit-for-tat thing.”  “I don’t think it was an accident,” he said. The Portland Press Herald shared The Times Record story.
