Putin's legacy

I can't remember how I came across it, so can give no credit for the link, but Publius Pundit reviews the Putin years:

It's now been exactly ten years since Vladimir Putin, proud KGB spy, was plucked from obscurity in the local government organs of St. Petersburg and fast-tracked to the presidency. Examining the basic chronological facts in the Putin's career in national politics, and comparing them with the chronology of arrests and murders against the Kremlin's adversaries which began in earnest as soon as he took power, yields terrifying implications about the fate of democracy in Russia.
That it does.
