    Putin is crazy. Why do the people in Russia put up with him?

    For same reason people put up with Stalin, Hitler other dictators.
    Some are freaked out, afraid of repressions, others look up to 'great leader'
    Many Russians believe he is a great Russian, he controls media, eventually what people talk and think.
    Russia has never been really democratic.
    Those opposing him, speaking against, him knocked out.
    There is no accountability really, polls can be rigged.

    Big protests planned for today in Moscow.
    Hard to believe in any peaceful process towards democracy in Russia, any chaos hardly welcome since it's a nuclear state.

    I remember not being surprised when I heard the news he was murdered.

    I'll never understand Russia. I've tried.
