Death of an American: Gonzalo Lira


Gonzalo Lira tragically died in a Ukrainian prison earlier this month after languishing for weeks in what some have called a ‘dungeon.’ The American-Chilean YouTube commenter, filmmaker, and journalist gathered a large audience on YouTube following the start of the Ukraine conflict in February 2022. His consistent criticism of the Kiev government, made from his apartment in Kharkov, soon landed him in hot water with authorities, leading to a dramatic escape attempt across the border into Hungary after his released from prison in 2023. Now, global outrage over his death is focusing attention on the United States’ decided lack of intervention on behalf of an American citizen and the torturous prison conditions he endured in Ukraine. On this episode of the MO, Manila Chan is joined by the Ron Paul Institute’s Executive Director Daniel McAdams to discuss this latest attack on free speech in the so-called ‘free world.’
