its ok tho, invade a small neighbouring location to rally national support, worked so well for the Argys....
No but at the very least the environment has been created by him that makes such events more likely.i dont belive putin ordered it, as it could so clearly backfire on them , but its still a bit sad , could even have been his "friends" cos you can get plenty of milage out of martyring people
It was an environment created long before Stalin, he was continuing a tradition that went back to the middle ages. Russia has always been the home of authoritarian rule and secret policemento be fair its an environment created by Stalin that has continued since then with only slight changes in appearance
Got about half way through on the way home. For those that didn't listen the big take-home is how much control Putin and his people have over the media and politics. The opposition parties that are allowed to take part in elections are actually controlled by Putin's machine and specifically set up to have very niche views which make Putin look reasonable in comparison. TV interviews have scripted stooges giving the opposing views. It looks like a debate or an interview but it isn't.
