Exiled Chechen War Reporter: Yuri Bagrov in New York City

A colleague and friend of mine, Yuri Bagrov, that worked as reporter with Radio Liberty/Free Europe and AP in Vladikavkaz, North Ossetia has been featured in NY Times.

“YURI BAGROV, a 32-year-old with a boyish face, a squished nose and long brown hair that flops around his shoulders, is a relatively new figure at RTVi, a Russian-language cable channel with a small studio on Hudson Street in TriBeCa. For years, Mr. Bagrov covered the separatist conflict in Chechnya, the war-ravaged republic on Russia’s southern border, for various news agencies. But in New York these days, his life is much quieter.”
