Is this all? Guys, you disappoint me. I thought I will see epileptic seizures, monitors all sprinkled with saliva, calls for a democratic invasion to Russia, "Je suis Boris" posters, instead of that some feeble grumbling. You are capable of more than this.

Another Ukranian politician died, this time on 25 February. Normally not of much interest, but now it is. Mayor of Melitipol, Sergei Walter was found hung. He also was in trouble with Kiev... http://news.mspravka.info/news/77279 Since the coup last year there have been more "suicides" of politicians than in the previous 23 years of Ukraine's existance, and guess, yes, all Party of Regions or others not in Kievs favor....

Russia is so out of control is Putin able to overcome the mental strain? I realize he is well trained to be cold but it is a lot easy to deal with these things if your are not front and center on the public stage. What happens if they try and throw him out?

To quote a Russian classic:

Quote:
"- I was often unjust to the deceased. But was the deceased a moral person? No, he was not a moral person. He was an ex-blindman, an impostor and a goose-thief. He devoted all his powers to the task of living at the expense of society. But society did not want him to live at its expense... And he could not endure this contradiction in views because his was an excitable character. And therefore he died. Thatís all."

Putin, because in a couple of weeks no one will remember Nemtsov.

Something curious has been found. On this link is a screenshot of Google search for Anna Duritskaya, who was with Nemtsov when he was killed. The part the red arrow points to says "23 year old Ukranian model Anna Duritskaya is witness to the murder of Boris Nemtsov" Yet look at the date stamp, it says "3 дня назад" - "3 days ago", hm, some psychic ability...

Why kill someone who will not be remembered in a couple of weeks and who was irrelevant from any point of view ?

Maybe so, but does the opposition to Putin gain from this nonetheless, it doesn't matter if no one remembers who was shot, only that they remember that someone opposed to Putin was shot, that could well give the opposition some momentum.

On the other hand, if Putin ordered it, then it's very overt, for that reason I think it unlikely that he did, but could one of his supporters? Possibly.

Far to early to say what's going on, but I wouldn't trust either Putin or the opposition either way!

Nobody really answered my question. What is the evidence that Putin will be able to emotional handle the strain he is under?

Because your two contentions that Russia is out of control and Putin is under pressure are false. Provide your evidence to back up your contentions before expecting any answers.
