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.

The protests in Ingushetia are the biggest seen in decades. Our correspondent reports.
