Ramzan Kadyrov rules the Caucasus republic through fear and oppression, amid reports of torture. But those seeking asylum in Europe are not safe, as assassins hunt them down

Zelimkhan Khangoshvili spent a long time living on the edge. He survived several years of partisan warfare against Russian forces in Chechnya during the early 2000s. He survived an assassination attempt in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi in 2015, a spray of bullets hitting him in the arm and shoulder. He survived a stint living in Ukraine, where he was tipped off about another planned attack and went into hiding. Finally, he arrived in Germany towards the end of 2016, and breathed a sigh of relief.

“I think he felt much safer here. He was only thinking about building a bright future in Germany, also for the children, not about fighting or going back there,” said Manana Tsatieva, Khangoshvili’s ex-wife, who lives in Germany with their four children.

Maker of Rothmans and Camel brands accused of avoiding tax on money channelled via Netherlands

British American Tobacco is being pursued by the Dutch authorities for £902m in unpaid taxes, as the maker of Rothmans, Camel and Lucky Strike cigarettes stands accused of avoiding tax on money channelled through the Netherlands.

The claim relates to taxes the company is said to owe between 2003 and 2016 and concerns internal fees paid by Dutch subsidiaries for loans provided by its UK holding company.

Ustinov is accused of injuring a police officer when he was arrested at a protest

A Russian court has released an actor from jail after a public backlash led by Moscow’s theatre community turned his case into a cause celebre.

Pavel Ustinov, who was detained at last month’s anti-government protests, still faces three and a half years in prison for allegedly injuring a police officer during his arrest, but analysts expect a judge will suspend the sentence, effectively granting Ustinov parole.

Downing Street tells Brussels negotiators documents must not be shared with 27 states

Downing Street’s secrecy over its “underwhelming” Brexit proposals has caused a fresh rupture in the negotiations in Brussels.

The row centres on a demand that the EU’s negotiating team treat a long-awaited cache of documents outlining the UK’s latest ideas as “Her Majesty’s government property”.

‘Feminist emergency’ demonstrations follow series of high-profile rape cases

Protesters will take to the streets of more than 250 towns and cities across Spain on Friday to declare a “feminist emergency” after a series of high-profile rape cases and a summer in which 19 women were murdered by current or former partners.

Organisers are aiming to “turn the night purple” – the colour of the feminist movement – to raise the alarm and protest against apathy, indifference and a lack of attention from politicians and the media.

MPs warned they will be blamed for NHS privatisation and job losses under any Johnson deal

The People’s Vote campaign has issued a warning to Labour MPs tempted to vote for any Brexit deal struck by Boris Johnson that they would be held responsible for a rightwing assault on Britain’s public services and economy.

The campaign circulated a dossier warning that a Johnson deal would lead to a “bonfire of rights”, as it emerged that two Labour MPs, Stephen Kinnock and Caroline Flint, had led a delegation to meet EU negotiator Michael Barnier on Thursday to discuss their potential support for a withdrawal deal.

Heather Stewart is joined by Polly Toynbee, Ryan Shorthouse and Stewart Wood to discuss the latest on the supreme court prorogation hearing and Brexit negotiations, as well as party conference season

As the supreme court grapples with the question of whether Boris Johnson’s prorogation of parliament was justified or not, the EU is still grappling with prime minister’s mystifying position on Brexit.

Now it looks as though the EU’s patience has finally worn thin. On Tuesday, France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, and Finland’s prime minister, Antti Rinne, set a two-week deadline to table a plan for replacing the Irish backstop.

Alexander Gabyshev walked 1,700 miles across Russia before being held by police

A wandering shaman on a quest to “drive the evil spirit of [Vladimir]Putin from the Kremlin” has been arrested in Siberia by armed police.

Alexander Gabyshev had walked an estimated 1,700 miles from the remote city of Yakutsk towards Moscow, attracting an eccentric group of acolytes and appearing at rare protests in regional Russian cities, before his arrest on Thursday.
