Gay Purge in Chechnya. And Crumbling Soviet Infrastructure

This week on From Russia With News, Yekaterina Sokirianskaya of the Conflict Analysis and Prevention Center explains why Ramzan Kadyrov’s crackdown on the LGBT community in Chechnya is unlikely to be stopped. And following a series of fatal gas explosions in apartment buildings, Maxim Trudolyubov explains what the authorities should be doing to shore up aging Soviet-era infrastructure.

From Russia With News is hosted by Jonathan Brown and produced by Pjotr Sauer. The podcast is recorded and edited at CM Records Studios in central Moscow. Stay tuned for a new episode every Thursday on our site or here. Also available on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify and other audio platforms.
