Unless you are vastly interested in the subject, you most likely don’t dwell on the current politics of Russia. After spending years worried about a communist invasion, it is nice to be able to relax (somewhat).

But, if you haven’t paid attention, you might not have noticed how Russia is slowly descending into a thugocracy.

You can get a taste of it here.
