Great site ! I'll have to add Simonworld to the blogroll.
Putin, so far, is a guy whose conservative bark is a lot worse than his bite - or the bite of his potential rivals.
It would be nice if Yabloko had not badly alienated the populace in Yeltsin's day and that the liberals were strong and vigorous but unfortunately, they aren't.
