Will Russia Move Its Capital to Siberia?

In the forty-fourth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, and Sovietskaya Rossiya. He discusses how much the new U.S. sanctions will diminish the Russian gross domestic product and how Russia could repair the damage. Professor Kovacevic also talks about the sudden spread of the Coxsackievirus in Turkey and its repercussions for the thousands of Russian tourists. In addition, he discusses the proposals for the relocation of the Russian capital city to Siberia and the consequences of the failed putsch against the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in August 1991, exactly 26 years ago.
