That's what happens to journalists in Russia who go against the Government's narrative, you get tossed in jail. Kind of makes one wonder why the Russian Government is so quick to jail people who oppose them assuming the Government is telling the truth like they claim they are...
Washington Post columnist Vladimir Kara-Murza, who has been critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was arrested in Moscow on Monday.
Kara-Murza was arrested outside of his house on the same day that he appeared on CNN in an interview.
In the interview, he said, “This regime that is in power in our country today, it’s not just corrupt … it’s not just authoritarian. It is a regime of murderers,” adding, “and it is important to say it out loud.”
“And it is really tragic, frankly, I have no other word for this, that it took a large-scale war in the middle of Europe, which Vladimir Putin is now conducting against Ukraine, for most western leaders to finally open their eyes to the true nature of this regime,” he added.-
Vladimir Putin's parents were both KGB officials. Putin followed the family trade by joining the KGB himself. Like the old saying goes, "the blood will out "
I'm wondering if Kara-Murza was writing damaging material? Perhaps there is a broader current of discontent in Russia than they can admit?
