Last weekend's nationalist riots in Moscow's Biryulyovo district followed a familiar script. A similar scenario played out in the southern Russian town of Pugachyov this past summer, in downtown Moscow in December 2010, and in the northwestern city of Kondopoga back in 2006.

What's driving this ethnic rage that periodically becomes manifest in Russia? What are its political implications? And how far will it go?

Joining me on this week's Power Vertical Podcast are David Satter, a veteran Kremlin watcher and fellow at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and Sean Guillory of the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian and Eastern European Studies.

Also on the podcast we discuss opposition leader Aleksei Navalny's response to the Biryulyovo violence and his political future in the wake of this week's appeals court ruling.

Enjoy...
