Vanity Fair published “The Putin Nemesis Plotting a Post-Putin Russia” by the low-octane professional Putin hater Masha Gessen.
The thrust of the article claims convicted felon and disgraced oligarch-in-exile Mikhail Khodorkovsky is the man to save Russia from the evil Putin – reads like bad fiction. Peter Lavelle’s reaction on Facebook was to be expected!
“Mikhail Khodorkovsky has as much of a chance of becoming Russia’s president as Al Capone does rising from the dead to become the next Chairman of the Fed. Masha Gessen and Vanity Fair are simply whack jobs!”
