Browder left out in the cold in Russia

by

U.S.-born hedge fund manager William Browder was denied entry to return to the Moscow headquarters of his $4 billion firm, Hermitage Capital Management, after a recent trip abroad, the New York Times recently reported. Browder has been an outspoken critic of both Kremlin politicians and business leaders who have been slow to implement corporate reform policies, but a strong supporter of President Putin. At this point, no one is saying what kept Russia from issuing him an entry visa.
