Protests erupt in Russia after arrest of opposition leader Alexey Navalny

"A wave of protests rolling across Russia today, demonstrators demanding that opposition leader Lexie Navalny be released from jail. The bony was arrested last weekend after returning from Germany, where he was recovering from a poisoning he blames on the Kremlin. NPR's Lucy and Kim is in Moscow, where the main demonstration is being held. The first protests started in the Pacific port of Vladivostok, seven hours east of Moscow, despite warnings from authorities and a heavy police presence. People rallied in support of Alexei Navalny in provincial capitals such as Novosibirsk, Yakutsk and Ka Bar Aske, a city that has seen months of anti government protests since the summer. Activists are reporting arrests. Navalny is an anti corruption campaigner and protest leader who was barred from running against President Vladimir Putin in elections three years ago. After Navalny was jailed, his team released an investigation into a lavish palace allegedly built for Putin. It's been viewed more than 60 million times on YouTube since Tuesday. Lucian Kim.

Anti-Kremlin protests continue in Russia's far eastern city of Khabarovsk

Anti-Kremlin protests continue in Russia's far eastern city of Khabarovsk

"Thousands of people took to the streets again in Russia's. Russia's far, east and city of Khobar of yesterday protests against Moscow, and the Kremlin have now been going on for over three weeks. Joining me for more to mark. Gherman Russia analyst stunt senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute Good Morning and welcome to the program Mark. Could we first recap what exactly has happened so far? The first protests were sparked by the arrest off a local politician weren't they? They were the local governor elected local governor Sergei for Guile, and this was on fifteen year old charges of involvement with some contract killing, which may or may not be true. He was set me involved in some questionable business. But the widespread assumption amongst the locals was that it was simply because the Kremlin was was peeved at him at the fact that he had stood against their candidate and then just simply rummaged around looking for suitable charges, and since then these protests have continued for, as you said, now, almost a month and it's really. So transmogrify from being about four, how to actually being about Moscow. About Putin and about the sense that in a way, the government in Moscow cares about the rest of Russia outside. It's ring road when it comes to taxing them rather than looking after them. Have those protests course most grow by surprise? Absolutely, an indeed one of the interesting signs of that is precisely that there has been such a clampdown on any references to the protests. In the official TV media, we've seen accounts in the newspapers and online sites, but very much from the televisions point of view, it's nothing and that's a classic sign off what what Moscow does when it doesn't know what to do. It basically tries to by itself, some breathing space, but the trouble is cost nowadays. Russians. Are Very Internet savvy and. And the news has gone out anyway, and at the moment I, think the Russians Russian government is essentially playing a waiting game. They don't really want to try and take on these thousand strong protests especially because the local law enforcement and security agencies frankly don't particularly infused to do so and therefore ain't now waiting hoping that it'll die down to the point when they can actually begin to crack down. Do you think that's going to to the protests? We'll just eventually die down. Well I think the honest answer is, yes. We saw the most recent protests are actually smaller than in previous ones and impact that was because it was rainy rainy day in such like. But because it's not as though, these can can go anywhere what the what, what are the real significance not that somehow this protest will, it will explode and expand. It's precisely what it shows about incipient protests potential within Russia because there's nothing particularly special about kebabs. He's not like he was unusually poor or badly hit by corona virus or whatever, and I think. Right. This is so worrying for the Kremlin, is that sense of fine we can ride out this one protest in this one city. But what does it say about the potential for more protests all across the country exactly disease dimension that. Putin rather strong grip on power buddies this. Really, the case everywhere in Russia also in more distant places such as city in the Far East? Well. This is interesting thing. It's that you might have protests the loyalty to the center. Until. Push comes to shove. We've seen as particularly in Russia east of the Urals for which there is classic. Russian proverb God is in Heaven Bizarre is far away where absolutely Moscow is a very distant force and we've seen it in the past where actually local authorities. Are often in cahoots with local security operators in their own corrupt deals and so forth. But also they feel the same kind of pressures and resentment as ordinary Russians. So I think one of the strengths of Putin's regime has always been that he's understood when not to push when to make concessions. But at the moment in a corona virus has eroded his personal support, the money is tight it's that much harder to make the kind of. Deals Shantou involve splashing the money around that. He has in the past. So it's an interesting question. I mean, yes, he's not gonNA be swept away by this. He's not disappear anytime soon, but the slow corrosion, the legitimacy of his regime is becoming all the more visible exactly, and let's remember this beauty can did now stay in power until two thousand and thirty six thanks to changes to Russia's constitution. Do you think he actually has to address this issue of erosion and do you think people are going to appreciate him for years to come? Well I mean who knows quite how history is going to take him. Frankly, I think probably quite harshly. He will have to address the question of legitimacy, but again I think the thing is that. Putting has been around longtime. He's been power twenty, two years I. Think if trump has exhausted his capacities to reinvent himself he's got these grand national projects that you meant to be about totally reconfiguring national interest structure and health and such like, and it's really quite telling that he's recently pushed back the timeframe for their accomplishment. He clearly has a very ambitious agenda. Agenda, but he doesn't seem to know either how to really accomplish it, and secondly how to afford it. So I think he's he's hoping at the moment that things just get better that do course the virus abates. The economy stabilizes and things will work out not sure how far holding your fingers. A crossing your fingers is really going to be a proper answer. The most go the Kremlin on Moscow seemed to be waiting that these protests were seeing in Cabbarov Squirrel, just gradually die away. But what if they doesn't what kind of a warning example this? Of Four four Moscow and UNFOR, Vladimir? Putin. We we have reached elections coming up rather soon. How can make sure that something like that doesn't happen in those cities in those regions as well? Well, here's the problem he can't because it's really about is going to catch nation of random factory in football was not particularly personally popular. It was more the just his arrest, which under other circumstances might well have. Have passed pretty much unnoticed. Just somehow catalyzed. They just general sense of being fed up. There was a coastal city. Now. Elsewhere, we have certain places I. Mean, for example, in in Novosibirsk in Siberia, there's sort of contested elections coming up where we actually have real opposition politics emerging. The government is going to hope that it considered squelch Shalit's, but didn't that it has to have these parliamentary elections however. Much the parliament itself is just a rubber stamp. Nonetheless, it has to have these elections and elections. Inevitably case it paces when situations are that, there will be discussions disagreements, it will generate or kind of precious. Again, what we're seeing something that means it's highly difficult to predict. That's irritating for an analyst like myself. You difficult to predict exactly what and where it's going to happen, but there is a prevailing sense in Moscow that. The country is entering some bumpy. Times? Would it be easier for peace in to lead his country. If it was simply smaller, it is understandable that Russians thousands of miles away from Moscow? Mayfield. They don't wants to be controlled by the capital, isn't it? Exactly. Eleven time zones away or whatever I mean the actually that sense that Moscow doesn't really care is really quite pervasive, but to be perfectly honest look I've traveled outside Moscow itself. Even within the Moscow region, you find these pockets of ticky rural poverty, where actually all the shiny new infrastructure, the bright lights, the hipster bars and things of Moscow seem alone wrong where way. So size does matter, but I think it's really not the key issue. It's about the extent to which this is a regime which is focused on Moscow and Petersburg, a handful of other major cities and really has developed them at the expense of the rest of the country. And just finally, Mark Looking at these protests and fierce Moscow and beauty may have. How can President Putin bring the nation together? Again is widely assumed that looking for enemies from the West has been one way for into boost his own popularity domestically. Do you expect that we may see some kind of new maneuvers from the president in the future if things get worse domestically. Well, there's this overwhelming assumption in the West that, yes, that he tries to distract attention this way we have to realize that with the exception of the two, thousand, fourteen annexation of Crimea. which was very, very unusual case. None of the various overseas adventures that Putin has engaged in Syria and so forth have been either driven by domestic considerations or frankly popular i. mean half the time. Actually the Russian regime lies to its own people to claim that it's at interventions abroad are much less than they really are. So I think what we're going to say is not some kind of adventure abroad, but we will. Will see a rising tone to this propaganda about the world is a hostile place and the Russia is beleaguered fortress. He doesn't make Putin popula. What it does do is it legitimises his Moose clamped down on the opposition because he can say, this is not a time to be divided because Russia's very future is at threat

"He is the head Sergei Mironov. He's the head of the check us and in western Siberia, he's important here. Because he's the husband of one of the heroines. We're going to follow heroin victims Morona when he comes to Moscow with all the other section. She's what do they think is underway? They know something big is underway because they are assembled in. It's unusual to assemble all sixty five of them in Moscow. They're told in great secrecy that great operation is underway. They are to tell no one they are to go home, and send back lists of potential enemies to place him in two groups one to be executed the other to be sent to the gulag they are somewhat uncertain as to how many numbers to appoint a how many numbers how many names to name in these quota lists. So they go back home and get to work. They get to work, and we will come back to that work because we're going to come to this moment from the point of view of the five women that Paul features in his book. I want to imagine what they see at this point in their lives, especially the wife of Marrone off at NASA and the wife of Yezhov and Gani those are two of the women of the five women. What's striking is that Paul doesn't just have kulak daughters or working, peasant wives who are become victims because their husbands have destroyed. Two of the five women are married to the executioners the devils themselves. Let's begin with Agnes. Oh, Agnes and her sister back in one thousand nine hundred twenty two their romantic young people and they're looking for marriage and one day a NASA, evidences that she's dreaming. Of climbing the ladder of success, despite the fact that the that the Russian country that she was born into his fallen apart the Russian empire and the Soviets are everywhere who did she choose for her? First husband her first husband is a young officer. Yvonne. He's in the border guard. But nevertheless, he calls himself a chick kissed. They marry they moved to Rostov on on the dawn. It turns out that Yvonne does not share. The ambition said nessa does. So she meets a rising young star by the name of Sergei Mironov who happens to deliver a lecture to the wives of his they begin a love affair, and when he is promoted to take over western Siberia, she simply leaves Yvonne and goes with him two or three years later they marry, but this is a relationship that lasts to the very end. What's telling here is when she gets to Kazakhstan with the man her husband, whom she calls Maracha. She says she's twenty eight years old. She sees right away. They're living in almo Alta, which was a crude and extremely violent place in. One thousand nine thirty one. She sees right away that their camps. What does she make of them? She makes a mistake of going with Madonna on a tour of the camps that are just being set up for the deported kulaks. And she listens to the stories that are being told there of cannibalism of death destruction nothing to eat a poor people living in tents and freezing. Conditions while I necessa- in a luxurious Pullman car full of food. So that is her rather brutal introduction to the business of her husband. They rise through the security ranks the head of securities replaced by eventually Mironov is a man who is Embiid any has a network of connections. And eventually by December nineteen thirty six. I have a note here they moved to Novosibirsk is that a Siberian palace. Or is that a backwater Novosibirsk was extremely important from the vantage point of the party in the N K V because this was the dumping ground for all the enemies of the Soviet states. So keeping Nova keeping western Siberia, Novosibirsk clean of enemies was very important position. The party had Robert I was one of the legend. Ndary founders of the Bolshevik party. So he was in good company there. Her name is Jenny Feigen Burke, and one of the most contradictory aspects of this whole story of sadism and violence and suicide is that she's the daughter of a rabbi, she's the daughter of a rabbi growing up in Gomel, which is a rather destitute and dreary place. She has ambitions. She envisions herself as a hostess in Paris or Berlin. Or if not there in Moscow, she says I can bring a little class to the to the Bolshevik part into the Bolshevik leadership. So she has her out for a husband who will give her this type of life. She marries wants to a journalist they moved to a Desa she marries twice to someone who's a little bit higher. This is the guy on the rise. So she said her eyes on him. And she got him. They would. She was taking the cure in Sochi the very same place. We just saw for the Olympics. Yes. They met on the beach believe it or not was quite a womanizer despite his appearance. He was successful because everyone knew of his power. So he did not hesitate to approach you have invited to dinner they danced, and you can imagine what happened that evening. He's a seducer. He's a sadist. He's a mass murderer does she know all this. When she marries when she divorces her literary husband in Mary's. He had not yet been promoted to the to be commissar of the cave. ED what she knew was. This is a powerful person is in the central committee. He's in the org bureau, which was the committee that assigned party leaders their position. So she knew he was really on the rise. She could not have known that he would rise to become head of the N K D as offs wife. As the same for NASA. They had privileges to the point where nessa referred to her servants as boot-lickers and have Gani held drunken. Parties movies were shown they were living as if this Soviet state around them was another another world, they were living inside bubbles was that how it was throughout the country of you just found two women who exemplify that.

Why does he order Jerzy off to send that out? Stalin CC opportunity to solve the problem of his enemies. And he thinks there are many once and for all time use your of his relatively new her commissar of the promises he can indeed get rid of these enemies once and for all time. So this is Stalin's stole get rid of all enemies, real or imagined. One of the men beckoned to Moscow in the subsequent days of July, nineteen thirty seven is a man named Moran off. He is the head Sergei Mironov. He's the head of the checkers and KPD in western Siberia, he's important here. Because he's the husband of one of the heroines. We're going to follow heroin victims Marrone off when he comes to Moscow with all the other section. She's what do they think is underway? They know something big is underway because they are assembled and it's unusual to assemble all sixty five of them in Moscow. They're in great secrecy that a great operation is underway. Are they are to tell no one they are to go home, and send back lists of potential enemies to place him in two groups one to be executed the other to be sent in to the gulag they are somewhat uncertain as to how many numbers to appoint how many numbers how many names to name in these quota lists. So they go back home and get to work. They get to work, and we will come back to that work because we're going to come to this moment from the point of view of the five women that Paul features in his book. I want to imagine what they see at this point in their lives, especially the wife of off. Nasa and the wife of Yezhov have Gani. Those are two of the women of the five women. What's striking is that Paul doesn't just have kulak daughters or working, peasant wives who are become victims because their husbands are destroyed. Two of the five women are married to the executioners the devils themselves. Let's begin with a nessa nessa and her sister back in one thousand nine hundred twenty two their romantic young people and they're looking for marriage and one day at NASA, evidences that she's dreaming of climbing the ladder of success, despite the fact that the that the Russian country that she was born into his fallen apart the Russian empire and the Soviets are everywhere who did she choose for her? First husband her first husband is a young officer. Yvonne. He's in the border guard. But nevertheless, he calls himself a chick kissed. They marry they moved to Rostov on on the dawn. It turns out that Yvonne does not share. The am Bishen said I'd nessa. So she meets a rising young star by the name of Sergei Mironov who happens to deliver a lecture to the wives of chick kiss. They begin a love affair, and when he is promoted to take over western Siberia, she simply leaves Yvonne and goes with him two or three years later, they married, but this is a relationship that lasts to the very end. What's telling here is when she gets to Kazakhstan with the man her husband, whom she calls Marusha. She she's twenty eight years old. She sees right away. Living an auto which was a crude and extremely violent place in. Nineteen thirty one. She sees right away that their camps. What does she make them? She makes a mistake of going with Mironov on a tour of the camps that are just being set up for the deported kulaks. And she listens to the stories that are being told there of cannibalism of death destruction nothing to eat a poor people living in tents and freezing. Conditions while I Ness is in a luxurious Pullman car full of food. So that is her rather brutal introduction to the business of her husband. They rise through the security ranks the head of securities replaced by eventually Mironov is a man who is ambitious and he has a network of connections. And eventually by December nineteen thirty six. I have a note here they moved to Nova Seversky is that a Siberian palace, or is that backwater severe was extremely important from the vantage point of the party in the N K V because this was the dumping ground for all the enemies of the Soviet states. So keeping keeping western Siberia Novosibirsk clean of enemies was the very important position. The party had Robert I was one of the legend. Ndary founders of the Bolshevik party. So he was in good company there. Her name is if Gani Feigen Burke, and one of the most contradictory aspects of this whole story of sadism and violence and suicide is that she's the daughter of rabbi, she's the daughter of a rabbi growing up in Gomel, which is a rather destitute and dreary place. She has ambitions. She envisions herself as a hostess in Paris or in Berlin. Or if not there in Moscow, she says I can bring a little class to the to the Bolshevik party into the Bolshevik leadership. So she has her out for a husband who will give her this type of life. She marries wants to a journalist they move to a Desa she marries twice to someone who's a little bit higher. This is the guy on the rise. So she said her eyes on him. And she got him. They would. She was taking the cure in Sochi the very same place. We just saw for the Olympics. Yes. They met on the beach believe it or not you Schoff was quite a womanizer despite his appearance he was successful because everyone knew of his power. So he did not hesitate to approach you've gained invited to dinner. They danced, and you could imagine what happened that evening. He's the seducer. He's a sadist. He's a mass murderer does she know all this. When she married when she divorces her literary husband in Asia. He had not yet been promoted to the to be commissar of the N D. For nasa. They had privileges to the point where Agneta referred to her servants as boot-lickers and have Gani held drunken. Parties movies were shown they were living as if this Soviet state around them was another another world, they were living inside bubbles was that how it was throughout the country of you just found two women who exemplify that. I think nessa exemplify this which was obviously a very rare privilege. Remember that you've gone consider considered herself a cultivated literary person? So her aim in life was to have the best literary salon. In Moscow, which indeed she achieved wants her husband became our commissar of the d. Are you sure of himself had no truck with such things? So when he would arrive, the guests would disperse we go to we're going to go to one more inside view of the destruction. That begins nineteen thirty seven when we come back, a very young person who marries into a very important powerful family in the early Soviet days. The book is women of the gulag portrait's of five remarkable is Paul Gregory at the Hoover Institution where he directs the workshop on child Taliban regime's.

"So by nineteen eighty, the World Health Organization or Radic aided urge Eclair did erotic, aided worldwide. So yes, Steve, you're right. Smallpox eradication worldwide. There's not been a case since nineteen eighty. That's a really big deal because it's twenty eighteen already, but the FDA last month approved a drug to treat. It seems weird, but there's good reason for that. So let's talk about the drug. I it's an antiviral drug. People had used antivirals previously when they were infected with smallpox, but they weren't targeted. They were kind of nonspecific. So previously, if you were infected with smallpox, the best thing would be to not get infected right to be vaccinated. But previously, if you were infected, were worst antivirals there's an but they weren't specific. There's a new antiviral. It's called t. pox or Teco VERA, Matt, and it's made. Made by drug company in New York City, and it actually inhibits the proteins within our own cells that allow the virus to spread. Smallpox, of course, is caused by vary Ola virus. There's very old, a major variable minor, and they're different symptoms that come with both. But most people get very old major when they used to get it and it mostly was awesome. It killing and making people being a lot of pain. This drug, which is kind of interesting. It's never actually been tested on humans, but the FDA is has approved it. And the reason it's never been tested on humans, at least in terms of its ability to cure smallpox because humans don't have smallpox, and they're not going to infect a human with smallpox to see how well this works. That would be an epidemiological nightmare. But they have tried it on monkeys and rabbits with a similar form called monkey pox and rabbit pox, and it was. Ninety percent affective. So this was just published in the New England Journal of medicine. I have a copy of it here called oral a Teco VERA, Matt for the treatment of smallpox. And so I think the big question is like, why are we have coming up with a an antiviral for a disease that's been a radically did? What do you guys think might combat terrorism? Yeah. So it might come back because of who said terrorism. Yeah, exactly. So this is a disease similar to poliovirus where it requires a human reservoir. So the fact that it is a radical means it's not like he Bola it's not always existing in the wild because it's not so Nautica so whereas we can never radically Ebola. We just have to treat these little pop ups. Every time they occur with smallpox similar to wild type polio virus, which were pretty close to a radically ding. Once it's gone, we have good reason to believe that it's gone. It does not exist within a human population and will not unless it's somehow released and it could be released in multiple ways. We do know that there is very Ola virus in the US centers for disease control the CDC that's in Atlanta and at vector, which is kind of the Russian version of the CDC, which is an Novosibirsk Novosibirsk. We'll pretend that was good. Thank you. So. What. There's there's an organization called the World Health Assembly there. They convene often to talk about like every couple years to talk about whether or not we should destroy them. Each time, people argue that it's probably not a good idea to destroy them because we need them to be able to do research because even if all of the very all of iris were destroyed that we know of, there's a chance that were there could be very Ola somewhere that we don't know about. For example, in two thousand fourteen, we found livestocks in a freezer at the h. nobody knew they were there. They just lost track of it and then they were like, holy crap. There's a freezer full smallpox, let's let's be better about this. And so that also opens up possibilities of during Cold War. Russia are their stocks of smallpox in different freezers that people either don't know about our never informed people of our their countries that have smallpox stocks that have never told the the globe because of the potential..

"Now The Boston Herald's morning meeting with Hillary. Shibo Morning meeting with Hillary Chaban Boston Herald radio Meeting, on, Boston Herald, radio. W CR Adam Kevin Frank Tom Shattuck Hillary Chicago. Is serving out a suspension a much deserved we're talking the last hour recapping President Trump's a meeting with Ladimir Putin on Monday and his attempt to walk back his statements yesterday joined now by Republican governor candidate Scott lively. At a known opponent of burnt hot dogs we should, note From his previous interview about the July fourth hey Scott how's it going what did you what was your initial reaction to the press conference with Trump and. Putin on Monday Actually very clear I think it's a wonderful thing Trump is reaching out to Russia trying to restore relations with. The other world nuclear superpower power. We have so much in common With the American conservative and Russian conservative populace I think it was a great thing and so were you disappointed yesterday with his remarks, where he kind of tried to walk back, there said said. He didn't say what he said I? Think, that, is actually being forced by the The intensity of the stability coming from the And the Neil Are you really United For a very long time against the populist conservative. Movement around the world Ryder Putin has actually a significant part What what are some of the things just as you mentioned that Putin's ideology in Russia have in common with American conservative I've actually been to Russia three times I? Did a speaking tour Pippi city speaking tour through eight concrete former Soviet Union and I've been all across Russia from Doc and Blagoveshensk. In the far east Siberia Novosibirsk arm, skin, a number of different cities they're all. The way of the west couching Petersburg. Spoken in universities I preached in churches I interviewed with all the print radio television, journalists that would people from why diversity Into Russian population and I have. A personal, assessment that the Russian people are really the most like America any people group that I've met in fifty eight countries that I've been to over the course of my life and that and I think what's really happening here, all this anti Russian propaganda you know it's. Propaganda because there's never counter arguments ever put in the articles when. They're dealing with crush. Always just assumed that the evil empire, when, they haven't been the Soviet collapse and And I think the purpose of all that is to prevent American. Conservative and, populist recognizing the kindred the kingship that they have in your logically with the Russian people which you know the Russians have a fiscal conservative system flat tax on a budget surplus On the social, issues they're the dominant cultural force in the country is the is the Russian Orthodox church not as it is here in America the sorta left-wing Hollywood and So there's a lot that She'll be is open to opportunities to be able to advance authentic conservative solutions through an alliance with the Russians instead of treating them. Like there's some evil empire You know like the. Cold War the is over and over for a long time Obama trying to restart it but I think that's failed now because what President Trump is just on so Governor Baker called Trump's remarks disgraceful it is does. Baker want friction what's what's the Russians still let's see you talk behind. It I think I think Baker's comment is disgraceful This? Is his president right this is Republican governor who has nothing but side with the hard left Democrats against President Trump just, another example of it and he's. Pandering to a laugh By criticizing president and he doesn't know what he's talking about Russia..
