In Russia banal arrested the thief, not opposition. He was tried jury. A thief should be. The Western media scandal blew up and accuses Putin's dictatorship without a cause. Freedom of speech in Russia is much higher than in the U.S. At the very least, its citizens, the Russian government is not listening and not reading mail.

I can only go off the article. It looks very convenient for Putin.

For Putin, it does not matter. Prisoner commonplace thief and deadbeat. Which has some crazy followers. The Western media are looking for a reason that you would like to discredit Putin. Investigation led a common provincial police. Not KGB. *laughs* In Russia surprised when Western media called this prisoner, politician. (of course, except for a few idiots).

Watching our beloved Justice Department, IRS, and White House these days, I'm not sure exactly where the line of demarcation is.
