Rabid Russophobe and neocon Michael Weiss is The Interpreter’s editor-in-chief. The Interpreter is the propaganda arm of The Insitute of Modern Russia. Pavel Khodorkovsky, the son of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, is president of the Institute, which was launched by the Khodorkovsky. Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who was joined by Putin for being over the top, is the US choice to replace Putin in the car of regime change. Paul Goble and other promoters of neoliberal regime change in Russia and the restoration of the Yeltsin years characterized by looting. The US interest is in weakening Russia. The purpose of the IMR and The Interpreter are information warfare aka propaganda and psyops.

From Wikipedia:
The Institute of Modern Russia (IMR) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy organization—a think tank—headquartered in New York City. It was founded in February 2010, by leading experts in Russia-US relations and human rights. According to the Institute's mission statement, "through its research, advocacy, public events and grant-making, IMR is committed to fostering democratic values, respect for human rights and the rule of law, and the development of civil society in Russia; the promotion of a principles-based U.S.-Russia dialogue; and the integration of a modern and forward-looking Russia into the community of democracies."
The president of IMR is Pavel Khodorkovsky, the son of Mikhail Khodorkovsky; the Institute's advisors include Vladimir V. Kara-Murza, Richard Sakwa and Andrei Piontkovsky. Lyudmila Alexeyeva is a Trustee of the Institute.
IMR is a federal tax-exempt Section 501(c)(3) public charity, incorporated in New Jersey.
The Institute ran a special project called The Interpreter Mag, a daily online journal committed to translating Russian-language media and blogs into English and publishing original features, reports, op-eds and interviews, with the goal of making the Russian-speaking world accessible to Western journalists, analysts, policymakers, diplomats and laymen. In January 2016, the magazine was absorbed by Radio Free Europe/Radio Free Liberty.[1]
