Protection for Russian journalists

Kremlin-backed group associated with campaigns against journalists offers them protection.

    Russian journalists are being offered protection from an unlikely source.

    A Kremlin-backed youth group known as Nashi, usually associated with campaigns against journalists, is offering them free bodyguard services. This comes after a number of journalists were brutally attacked in recent months.

    The move is seen as an attempt by the youth group to repair its tainted image.
