News from the region

The “News from the Region” column on the right-hand side of the home page is compiled mainly from selected items in the weekly Russian-language news bulletin put out by the Agency for Social Information (ASI) in Moscow, supplemented by items from elsewhere. The column is updated weekly, and key items also appear in the monthly BEARR Bulletin. (Some items may have been shortened by BEARR.)

The column also has links to the full and voluminous ASI bulletins for those who have Russian and wish to browse more widely.
