PORTRAIT. Vladimir Kara-Merza, the ‘black prince’ who is now at the top of Putin’s death list

He survived two poisoning attempts and has now been locked up for 22 months. Last month he suddenly went missing, after which it turned out that he had been moved to another prison camp in Siberia. There he is now in isolation, while his health is declining. It sounds alarmingly similar to what happened to Alexei Navalny, who died on Friday. Vladimir Kara-Moerza (42) is less known, but in principle even more influential. So what did he do against Vladimir Putin? And why did he carry the coffin when John McCain was buried?
