Has anyone actually taken a careful examination of the case from unbiased (non-Western) sources. There is a tremendous amount of corruption in Russia and that corruption crosses all political lines. Something tells me that if this politician were pro-Putin, the Western media wouldn't be the slightest bit skeptical of his guilt. Yet because he happens to be anti-Putin it all must be a shame.
Again, I'm just asking question here. I don't know enough about this particular case to form an opinion one way or the other. But I do know the way the Western media held Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who was probably the greatest criminal oligarch in Russian history, up as some kind of saint just because he became an enemy of Putin. I do know that the government of Ukraine is 10X more corrupt than Russia's yet our media holds them up as some kind of democratic ideal. There is a history here. We need to be more careful.
