It has been a tragic summer for the Russian human rights community and
for Chinese traders in Moscow whose goods were confiscated and now face
mass deportation. At the same time, Russia's head of state suggests that

sensitivities of Russian leaders are ruffled.

independent-minded, "schismatic" Orthodox church.

1. CHECHEN REBELS REACH ACCORD WITH KADYROV

2. RUSSIAN PATRIARCH CALLS FOR 'UNBREAKABLE UNITY' WITH UKRAINE
