The thieves that stole half a billion dollars continue to defy Medvedev's call for the rule of law. I think Medvedev should complain to the authorities :)

"“Those who have been fired were the least important part of the conspiracy to steal tax money and kill Sergei,” said Browder from London, where he has been based since Russia refused him entry in 2005. “We’ve written well-documented complaints to the top law-enforcement officers in the country that a number of police officers, judges, organized criminals and businessmen have been involved in the theft of almost $500 million from the state, and were involved in imprisoning Sergei Magnitsky. So far there have been absolutely no consequences for those people.”

I remember reading about Magnitsky. I consider his death to morally be a murder. I would have titled your blog. "Criminal Sense of Justice, Russian-style."

lemoneater,

Both morally and physically. Why stories like this one deserve mentioning? Because it's a great litmus test. When you ask yourself who is protecting these thieves, and who is protecting the man who is protecting the thieves, and who is protecting the man who is protecting the man who is protecting the thieves, the thread immediately leads you to the man on the top of the power pyramid.
