They Say It Could Always Be Worse...
The Russian President has signed the much disputed set of amendments to the administrative code that increase the fines for illegal rallies 150-fold and introduces more regulations over street protest.
Putin cites the riots in Great Britain in 2011 as one of the pretenses of the amendments, effectively associating all “illegal rallies” and “street events” with acts of wonton, criminal violence, or perhaps a political coup. In reality, he’s probably thinking more about long-term, regime-changing, widespread protests ala Arab Spring and OWS, and how he can create a legal precedent for hamstringing public dissent.
