    Here, with English subtitles, is a Russian TV report about the Church of Scientology's greed and Russian scholars who act as cult apologists. The program underscores the fair-gaming of the religion scholar whose expert report contributed to the court decision to dissolve Scientology's Moscow branch; she concluded that the Church of Scientology is a business, rather than a religious organization.

    The program contains a segment about another cult — Svetlana Peunova's Academy of Development and her political party, Volya. Despite its mysticism, Peunova's cult seeks official recognition, not as a religious organization, but as a social organization — because a social organization is more difficult to shut down. A scholar who defends the Church of Scientology is preparing an expert opinion that will likely please Peunova.

    The program aired on December 23, 2016
