Leonid Latyshev killed a man, while he was drunk, and ended up in prison in Arkhangelsk. Latyshev is a Nenets – a nomadic people in northwest Russia, traditionally living of reindeer herding. In today’s Russia, the Nenets live in villages and face increasing problems with alcohol and crime.
Reporter Svetlana Sinitsyna’s investigation of the Nenets problem was broadcast on TV Pomorie in Arkhangelsk and received her colleagues’ recognition in the award of The Arkhangelsk Journalists Union “Zolotoe pero Severa”.
