The Exchange: Lynsey Addario and Shirin Ebadi Talk Iran

foreignpolicy.com — Since the fall of 2013, the international media have offered a weekly, and sometimes hourly, tick-tock of the successes and setbacks leading up to a nuclear deal with Iran. Largely missed by this exhaustive news cycle, however, have been the human rights abuses that persist in the Islamic Republic.

Путину по нраву многожёнство

foreignpolicy.com — В том, что Владимир Путин стал героем европейских правых, нет ничего нового. Ультраправые активисты и партийные лидеры от Великобритании до Венгрии видят в российском президенте оплот борьбы против американской гегемонии, проекта централизации Европы и размыванием того, что они считают традиционными христианскими ценностями.

Putin Is Down with Polygamy

foreignpolicy.com — It's not news that Vladimir Putin has become a hero for the European right wing. Far-right activists and party leaders from Britain to Hungary see the Russian president as a bulwark against American hegemony, a centralized European project, and the erosion of what they see as traditional Christian values.

This is why it’s impossible for the Kremlin to lie about Putin’s weird disappearance

washingtonpost.com — It's been more than a week now since anybody's seen Russian President Vladimir Putin. He had a mundane meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi on March 5, and then ... nothing. Since then, Putin hasn't been seen in public, and the Russian blogosphere can talk about nothing else.

Spy vs. Nonspy in Putin’s Russia

nytimes.com — Earlier this week, F.B.I. agents in New York arrested a 39-year-old Russian man named Evgeny Buryakov, whom federal prosecutors accused of participating in a spy ring gathering economic intelligence on the United States. There were three spies in all, according to the criminal complaint federal prosecutors filed on Monday, all agents of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (S.V.R.), who had been posing for several years as civilians.
