Russia is attempting to inject itself into the standoff between the United States and North Korea.

On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, we look at a Russian-Chinese plan, announced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, under which North Korea would freeze missile tests and the United States and South Korea would impose a moratorium on large-scale military exercises.

Joining me is RFE/RL's News Editor Steve Gutterman.

Enjoy...

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.
