Russia: GoT's George R. R. Martin shies away from Russian politics at St. Petersburg Q&A

George R. R. Martin, writer (English): «Westeros is already pretty well set, I know what the seven kingdoms of the Westeros are, the various lands, I don't think there is a room for me to kind of squeeze in another one at this point. I mean, I've only been in Russia like for two days and it was the first time I have visited here and mostly I have seen is my hotel, which is very nice and Vyborg... Еще castle, where we travelled yesterday. It was interesting and fascinating, I really love castles. As for Russian politics, I comment on the American politics because I follow it closely and participate in it. I don't think I have sufficient expertise to tell a bunch of Russians what I think about Russian politics. You'll have to sort that out yourselves.» George R. R. Martin, writer of book series A Song of Ice and Fire that went on to inspire the hit TV series Game of Thrones, declined to comment on Russian politics during a St. Petersburg press conference, Wednesday, saying to Russians “You'll have to sort that out yourselves.” Speaking about a possible place for Russia in the popular fantasy series, Martin said he didn’t think «there is a room for me to kind of squeeze» the country in between the seven existing kingdoms in Westeros. When asked about his views on Russian politics, he replied that for the most part he only commented on “American politics because I follow it closely and participate in it. I don't think I have sufficient expertise to tell a bunch of Russians what I think about Russian politics. You'll have to sort that out yourselves.» Discussing his trip to Saint-Petersburg, Martin added that «just driving around the city, I have seen beautiful buildings,» saying that he would like to visit the Winter Palace.
