"Pop diva a la pugach over here is the latest and arguably the most famous Russian to criticize Vladimir Putin's war, and bears Charles maines joins us now from Moscow. Good morning Charles. Good morning. So for those who don't know, tell us about this artist in what she's done that's grabbing headlines. Sure, yeah, I'll put a chova emerged as a superstar back in the Soviet Union in the 1970s with this huge voice, so we got a little taste of that in your intro. In an age that saw Soviet artists, either serve as a megaphone for the state or imitate western musical taste. The songs were genuine, you know, occasionally even daring, and certainly popular. For decades, she's provided the soundtrack to the experiences of Soviet and Russian women in particular. And her star never faded, even today at age 73, she remains this major celebrity whose songs and personal life of intense interest. And she's currently married to her 5th husband, this popular television comedian named Maxine galkin. Now he's been critical of Russia's actions in Ukraine and been labeled by the government as a foreign agent because of it. And that was apparently enough for pugachov. She publicly came to the defense of her husband, and in a post to social media, she wrote about wanting to put a stop to quote our boys dying for what she called illusory goals. And she lamented that her beloved country had turned into a pariah state, so no mention of Ukraine directly, but the message couldn't have been clearer. Yeah. And how is that message being received? Well, you know, the Kremlin dismissed it, state media selectively edited her comments. But meanwhile, it seems everyone's talking about it. I reached out to Yuri Sabrina. He's a Russian journalist who often writes about the intersection of culture and politics. And it's a pretty argues this is a hugely significant moment. So here's the breaking says it's a sensation that Phuket chova is weighed in on politics, really for the first time in her long storied career. Supreme points out that Phuket chova is carefully chosen her language here using patriotic phrases like our guys and our beloved country that appeal to her audience, which often overlaps with president Vladimir Putin's own fan base. In other words, his electorate. And that's the freaking argues gives everyone really a license to discuss and debate events in Ukraine in ways that they haven't so far, but also in ways that the government hasn't wanted them to. And this isn't the only criticism the Russian president has faced in recent days, right? Yeah, that's right. You know, he's now facing criticism from nationalists who question his military strategy in Ukraine. Arguing that the Kremlin hasn't done enough to achieve its goals. Meanwhile, Russian liberals in the opposition, of course, never had much love for the president and vice versa. And now you have puka choba. This mega star not only defending her husband from the state, but also projecting to her vast audience, her displeasure with the direction of the country, which for some also brings a new kind of twist her music. So songs like this one where she sings defiantly about leaving a lover in the dust can now be reinterpreted through a political lens. NPR's Charles mains in Moscow, thanks so much. Thank you. We're

From pure news, I am Sarah hosseini in San Francisco. Russia has defaulted on its international dead obligations for the first time in a century, NPR's Charles main's reports western sanctions have severely impacted Moscow's ability to pay its overseas creditors. The default was triggered after Russia failed to pay around $100 million owed to creditors on Sunday, only there's a catch, Russia has the money and says it's willing to pay, escalating western sanctions imposed over Russia's actions in Ukraine prevented Moscow from making the transfer. That as Russian officials rejecting the default label as a farce, Moscow has also proposed creditors instead reclaim their money from Russian banks in the local currency, the ruble, analysts say the default allegation is unlikely to royal markets given the barrage of sanctions already imposed on Moscow what it will do they argue is make borrowing money a challenge for Russia in the years to come.

"And particularly because there's a new player in this battle, and that's Turkey. So explain Turkey's role. Well, the Azerbaijanis air ethnically Turkish, so there's a new alliance. They're They're certainly turkeys, providing some high tech weapons to Azerbaijan particularly seen drones, for example, being used in this war fare so very different in that sense from the war in the early nineties, when it was basically People running around with Kalashnikovs. This time, it's it's high tech weaponry. But also, you know, Turkey says that they're openly backing us there by John both in the negotiations and on the battlefield. Although they reject this idea that they're actually sending fighters directly. There seems to be some evidence of that now. Also, it's important to note that the Turkish president Erdogan, he's insisting that Turkey have a place of the table in any negotiations of robot. He says that Turkey deserves a role next to United States, Russian France in terms of trying to negotiate some kind of lasting settlement. The problem here is that the Armenians just to make things more complicated. See Turkey as behind the genocide over a century ago, so there's a lot of bad blood. There is well, right. I mean, it's really complex and then Russia where you are, Charles, I'm in the Kremlin. Is in a bit of a tight spot with this conflict in the Garden car. Bob doesn't Russia have dual loyalties to both Azerbaijan and Armenia going back to Soviet times? It does. It has good relations, frankly, with both and large Jasper's from both countries in Russia point that Putin made on Thursday, but amusing So Putin saying here that Russia has is much stake in this fight. Is anyone because these people are their neighbors, their people that live in Russia's well But of course, it's more complicated than that. Russia has a joint defense pact with Armenia. That means that theory, Russia should come to Armenia's aid if it's tacked by Azerbaijan. And that's of course, raising fears that Turkey support of Azerbaijan could draw Russian to the fight. In other words, expanding this into an international global conflict. Then there's the fact that Russia also arms both sides and has been for many, many years. So Charles, the latest on the ground in Nagorno Kara Box sounds pretty discouraging. What is the current situation? What do you hear? We keep seeing his competing versions, both the Armenian sandals or by Johnny's, insisting that they're inflicting heavy casualties on the other. Certainly see reports of more civilians being killed. It was interesting Vladimir Putin and speaking about the conflict yesterday in Moscow. This is on Thursday. He said that there were 5000 dead already, which marked a higher number than previous estimates, although that's not confirmed. Now. The other issue here is that it's very forces say they've been making territorial gains, including full control over the border with Iran, which army denies. And that's pretty common from we've seen if one side says they've made some kind of gains or some accomplishment. On the battlefield. The other says That's not true.

"Marco Woman You're with the world. We come to you from GBH. Boston NPR X Influence operations, cyberattacks email hacking all part of the Kremlin's playbook on fuelling political discord abroad. Yesterday, Norway accused Russia of hacking into its parliament's email system this past summer. Russia calls Norway's accusation of provocation Reporter Charles Mains joins us from Moscow. So have we learned anything new about this alleged cyber attack, Charles? Is there new evidence or any more information? You know, Michael, frankly, not a lot, except for the media interest, of course, particularly since Norway decided to confront Russia publicly about this, we've got the foreign minister, calling this a serious incident that effects are most important Democratic institution. Also prime minister and the Solberg said this was a message to Russians. They were sending that this was unacceptable and calling them out is being behind what she called this burglary. One response from Russian officials. As I said, This is a provocation so provocation for what What else are you hearing from the Kremlin? Well, you know, that might sound a little bit familiar. It's kind of a shrug. The Russian Embassy in Oslo said There was no evidence of this, but They made this point that Russia constantly faces cyber attacks, but that Moscow doesn't go publicly accused in other countries because they can't prove it. So this happened in August, But Norway's just announcing it now in the middle of October. How do you explain the timing of the announcement? It certainly seems to be this latest example of Ah trend in souring relations between Oslo in Moscow, it seems to follow several espionage cases. For example, In August, Norway expelled a Russian diplomat on charges of spying, which led to the expulsion of a Norwegian diplomat in a tit for tat move. You know. Then there was the conviction of a Norwegian border guard who was in fact caught spying on Russia and an embarrassment to the Norwegian security services, and he was sentenced to 14 years in prison before being later exchanged a spy swap in November of last year so you can see this pattern of back and forth between the two sides. If true, what could rush accomplished with a cyber attack like this? Hacking into Norway's parliamentary email system? You know, the truth is Marco. We really can only guess, but it does come after a summer report by the Norwegian Defense Ministry that accused Russia of carrying out Disinformation campaigns designed to undermine Norwegians faith in their government elections. Government institutions. You know, the impact of that effort is a source of debate in Norway as it is in many countries, of course, including the US where we've seen similar accusations hurled at Russia. Right. What is Russia's relationship like with Norway, both politically and on, the military said. You know, it used to have a pretty good relationship that was really transformed, however, by Russia's annexation of Crimea back in 2014 prompted real concerns over Norway's territorial integrity. Could it protect itself from Russia? Then there's Norway, hosting its fellow NATO members for a massive exercise in 2018 called.
