Top Extremism- and Terrorism-Related Stories in Russia, 7-13 June 2014

Posted: 13/06/2014 in Media Reporting

This week’s highlights of media reports and developments relating to extremism, terrorism and insurgency in Russia. These highlights are intended to provide an overview of the most interesting stories rather than a comprehensive survey of all reporting on the issues.  Interesting material from extremist websites that may complement the picture is not included – for ethical (and legal) reasons, I choose not to link to extremist material.
