The Troika Laundromat Explained. And How Russia is Dealing with Returning Islamic State Brides

This week on From Russia With News, we discuss the explosive Troika Laundromat investigation with Paul Radu, the executive director of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, which revealed the scheme.

We'll also talk to Guardian correspondent Andrew Roth on why the return of hundreds of women and children from Iraq and Syria has become a major problem for Russia.
