In the seventy-third edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Moskovskiy Komsomolets, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and Nezavisimaya Gazeta. He presents exclusive comments on the Skripal incident by a Russian chemist who worked in the Soviet Chemical Weapons Program. He also discusses how the Ukrainian government lied about a status designation allegedly granted to it by NATO and how, not surprisingly, NATO played along with this lie. In addition, Professor Kovacevic talks about the paradoxical case of the Russian Central Bank’s increasing purchases of the U.S. Treasury bonds and its financing of the U.S. debt, even though the U.S. is about to impose even more economic sanctions and restrictions on Russia. Lastly, he shows how the Russian opposition activists, living in the U.S., are trying to impact the Russian presidential election.
