A Potemkin Village For The Turkmen President


Dancers, children, and happy fruit merchants greeted Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov as he officially opened a newly constructed village in early July. Then the president left and the village returned to its previous state: an uninhabited shell in the middle of nowhere. (RFE/RL's Turkmen Service and Current Time)
