Moscow Cracking Down Sooner and Harder than Ever Before on Protests in Regions

Paul Goble

            Staunton, June 5 – On the basis of an examination of how the central authorities have responded to protests in the regions that involve local officials, the Actual Comment portal says that Moscow is more closely monitoring these developments than before and cracking down both sooner and harder than it did even a year or two ago.

            The portal examines and reports the course of events in Krasnoyarsk kray, Daghestan, Sverdlovsk oblast, and Novosibirsk oblast in order to reach that conclusion, one that suggests the central government is worried about the possibility that protests in the regions could spread and challenge to its control (actualcomment.ru/s-federalnym-tsentrom-ne-igrat-1806051142.html).
