It's Navalny, Subby. And how did he not sign his death warrant going back to Russia?

Oops, reported link thanks.

I don't know if he will survive this time, but Putin would also be very stupid to off him at this point.

As Trump has shown, there is little consequence for illegal or criminal actions. Putin is even more secure in that regard.

People willing to die for what they believe in is how things change when faced with despots.

Putin should be very afraid and I hope we can support the opposition in any way possible.

The destruction of Putin and his Oligarchy would be an awesome 2021!

So just for fun, I found Putin's palace on Google Earth (requires Chrome).

It's no Versailles, I'll say that much.

How long until this gets spun as US retaliation for Putin messing with the US ?

Or perhaps Germany etc as we have been checked out for a spell

oh wow.  I'm a bit drunk right now but i will absolutely watch this tomorrow over coffee & breakfast.

Putin should quit/should have quit while he was ahead. He personally has something like half of all the wealth in Russia and a huge fortress with private army on the Black Sea.  It is not going to be possible for him to take all the wealth, the limit is going to be somewhere between what he has now and maybe 75 % of it.

Not really. The GOP is, at best, tolerant of associating politically with those who are anti-democracy.

This protest needs to continue indefinitely until Putin and his cabinet are removed and their heads on a pike.  Otherwise this is just for show.

Nothing will happen until a good part of the army defects to the people. Like all dictatorships when they fall. You cant do it without violence and without a big part of the army backing you. Dictators just dont go away because they know they will get murdered or spend the rest of their lives in prison if they do.

Putin will not get out of power until he's literally murdered or the army turns on him.

I'm wondering if he was forced to go back because he was told if he didn't, certain friends & family might end up "having accidents".

"Chanting "Shame!" protesters also threw snowballs at a passing government car with an official blue light. After it came to a stop, people rushed at the car and started kicking it. The government car that was attacked belonged to the F.S.B., Russia's domestic intelligence agency, state news media reported later. The driver lost an eye, the RIA state news agency said."

What's the political chain of command? Let's say Putin is removed. Who's in line? Is there a way to get someone there who isn't worse than Putin?

the power of a dictator as with any .app lies within the populace's willingness to support its continued use.

Putin is a megalomaniac, ripping off the Russian populace.
They have records and receipts to back up almost every accusation.

Trump is out of office. That means if Putin tries a high-profile political execution/assassination, there's a VERY good chance of America joining the EU in hitting Putin with sanctions. The last major round of sanctions seriously skullfarked Russia, to the point where Putin was desperate enough to play his Trump card.

My guess is Putin is a little nervous about offing Navalny, which may or may not mean something.

I liked it better when I thought Putin was some power-mad Bond Villain of an ex-KGB assassin, pulling the strings and moving the pieces of the Great Game for the joy of it.

Now he just looks like the Top Oligarch, Looter-In-Chief, no different than our own 21st-century Robber Baron donors & politicians, just with a head start, even fewer scruples, and a more unstable country to his benefit.  A mafia thug, nothing more.

How banal.  It's like John McClane finding out that Hans Gruber is just a thief after all.  Disappointing.
