The Real Russia. Today. Yakutia cracks down on migrants (but not from Kyrgyzstan), another former governor is detained, and John Williams takes down a Russian local official

Aisen Nikolaev, the governor of Yakutia, has banned migrant workers from being employed in a range of 33 different industries in the course of 2019. Nikolaev signed the executive order after a Kyrgyz citizen was charged in a recent rape case, sparking a series of anti-migrant protests in the republic’s capital city of Yakutsk.
