Verrrry Interesting.

Dunno whether this is all accurate, but it is fascinating. Overall, eXile’s diagnosis is very similar to mine, though he seems to veer off track a bit at the end. I especially liked this paragraph:

Given Russian history, and given the high scary-factor of the two silovik clans, Putin should have every reason to worry about how badly he’s going to sleep once he leaves the Kremlin. If power passed to one or the other clan, then London or Siberia or the untraceable-poison intensive care ward are all serious possibilities.

Sure ’nuff.

BTW, I picked this up from Johnson’s Russia List. If you aren’t reading that, you should be.
