The Briefing: Exposing Kadyrov
A threat to national security?
Chechnya's mercurial leader Ramzan Kadyrov will be back in the news this week as the first anniversary of Boris Nemtsov's assassination approaches and Russia's opposition prepares to release a lengthy report on his activities.
On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, we look at the likely impact of opposition leader Ilya Yashin's upcoming report, titled National Security Threat, excerpts of which were published in the Russian newspaper The New Times.
Joining me is Pavel Butorin, managing editor of RFE/RL's Russian-language television program Current Time.
