A U.S. Supreme Court ruling resonates in Russia. And Moscow tries a soft approach with Armenia.
On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, we look at how last week's ruling extending same-sex marriage to all 50 U.S. states is resonating in Russia -- and surprisingly, the official reaction has not been uniformly negative.
Also on the Briefing, we look at recent moves by Moscow to appease protesters in Armenia and what this may portend.
Joining me is Pavel Butorin, senior producer for 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 every Monday.
