RUSSIA - Putin and Protests

"Why Navalny poses a special challenge to Putin’s leadershipPBS NewsHour 4/21/2021

My answer:  Putin is a tinpot dictator on the payroll of Oligarchs, does not care about the Russian people, and Navalny is a very big threat."


SUMMARY:  Across Russia Wednesday, protesters took to the streets in support of the jailed — and critically ill — opposition leader Alexei Navalny.  They denounced the man they blame for his imprisonment, President Vladimir Putin.  Amna Nawaz discusses the latest with Celeste Wallander, who was the senior director for Russia and Eurasia on the National Security Council staff under the Obama administration.
