In this edition we head to the majority-Muslim republics of Ingushetia and Chechnya in Russia’s Caucasus region. Chechnya is ruled by the strongman Ramzan Kadyrov, a protégé of President Vladimir Putin. He tolerates no dissent. But next door in Ingushetia, people have been protesting after Kadyrov signed a treaty with his Ingush counterpart that redraws the border between the two autonomous republics. The protests in Ingushetia are the biggest seen in decades. Our correspondent reports.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett.
