The Rise of Gagauzia: A Joint Turkey-Russia Front in Eastern Europe

In the seventy-first edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Kommersant, and Pravda.

Professor Kovacevic also presents the highlights of an interview with Dmitry Rogozin, a powerful Russian deputy prime minister in charge of the Russian military-industrial complex.
