Something For The Weekend

If you missed these stories from RFE/RL this week and are looking for something to print out and read over the weekend, try these:

Raffi K. Hovannisian, who was Armenia's first minister of foreign affairs, outlines 10 priorities for Turkey.

Caucasus watcher Liz Fuller discusses speculation that the Russian leadership has finally realized that Kadyrov constitutes both an embarrassment and a potential threat.

Rob Coalson does a postmortem on the Moldova protests and finds a country with weak and underdeveloped political institutions, vulnerable to domestic and foreign manipulation.

And in a exclusive video interview with RFE/RL, Hillary Clinton strongly condemns a controversial new Afghan law, which critics say will restrict the rights of women.
