Andrei Kolesnikov — Putin’s Art of the Purge

Damned if you do, and damned if you don't. The cries about rampant corruption in Russia have been going on the West since the collapse of the USSR. A couple of years ago, President Putin appointed a special investigator prosecutor to put an end to it. Now that officials are being held to account, the West is crying, "purge."

Same with China and President Xi.

Look at the credentials of the author and go figure.

But the Western bankers got off the hook. Michael Hudson says they crashed the economy in 2008 on purpose knowing they would be bailed out. Washington is full of corruption. It reminds me of Rome in the final years.
