Listen to political science professor Kimberly Marten discuss the terrorist bombing in Moscow and her new book on warlords and Ramzan Kadyrov in Chechnya on KPFK Radio in Los Angeles. 

Prof. Marten also appeared on RT Television, talking about the international ramifications of the bombing:

“The leaders were trying to send a message to get as much international attention as they could, probably to try to derail Russia’s efforts to get more international investments in the Russian economy,” she commented. “We also have to look at why people in the North Caucasus tolerate this, why they give their support to the terrorist rather than turn them into the police.”
