Journalist Ildar Isangulov reminds that a criminal gang member's testimony against Igor Izmestyev, a Bashkir representative in Russia's Upper House, can hardly be credible. The "Putin attack" suspect Alexander Pumane beaten to death by Moscow criminal investigators [1][2] was later linked to the same gang. The journalist asks if the gang members were threatened with a similar treatment and forced to give a false testimony against Izmestyev.

"Siloviks" have been a staple of Russian history for ages.

Just as a prominent poet Ilya Kormiltsev, I can't wait to see a dance floor in place of Kremlin.

An old time dissident Vladimir Bukovsky recognized the disadvantage of concentrating all-Russia rule in one place and suggested to decentralize the federal system should he become a president.

No wonder Vladimir Sorokin, the author of Oprichnik's Day, favoured Bukovsky's candidacy. I agree with Sorokin's point that the tyrannical past has returned. The good Kremlin is the dance floor Kremlin.
