On its last day of work, the outgoing State Duma passed one of its most draconian pieces of legislation to date: a controversial antiterrorism bill that effectively turns Russia into a nation of suspected criminals.
On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, I discuss the bill with Pavel Butorin, managing editor of RFE/RL's Russian-language television program Current Time.
NOTE: The Power Vertical Briefing is a short look ahead to the stories expected to make news in Russia in the coming week. It is hosted by Brian Whitmore, author of The Power Vertical blog and appears on Mondays.
The Briefing will not appear on July 4 and 11. It will return on July 18.
