How Kremlin trapped ‘Newsweek Russia’ editor

4 April 2010

The editor of Newsweek Russia, Mikhail Fishman, has been surreptitiously filmed snorting what appears to be a line of cocaine and sitting on a sofa next to a woman wearing only a t-shirt, in what is being described as a “honeytrap” laid by Kremlin to ensnare critics.

The video has surfaced on YouTube (the operative portion after 3 minutes). Fishman is quoted by The Sunday Times, London, as saying the KGB style tactic was a signal to independent journalists to keep a low profile.
