One of the last independent media voices comes under pressure. And Russia gets a new human rights commissioner with a rather creative view on human rights.
On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, we look at the apparent assault on RBK, one of the last independent media outlets in Russia, owned by billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov.
Also on The Briefing, we discuss Russia's new human rights commissioner, Tatyana Moskalkova.
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 every Monday.
