The wurst kind of sausage


So Navalny is arrested upon his return to Russia which seems to be the cue for his team to release a two hour inquiry/documentary on Putin's Palace.
It would seem Russia's unimpeachable president for life has a little side project going when he's not restituting the motherland to its rightful place on the world stage.
I never figured Putin as motivated by wealth or being a money grabber, it turns out I'm right: he just really likes to spend it!

Youtube, timecoded for the part where they start the aerial view of the complex, English subtitles available.

What impact will this revelation have on the political landscape?
According to Russian pundits, absolutely none lol.

I get the feeling navalny is going to troll until martyred or elected, and I can respect that.

His current presidency ends in 2024. But uh, I'm sure the people will "vote" him back in in a landslide. Again.

edit: According to wiki he's collectively been president for 19 years lol

i heard he might retire because of health problems but who knows

also as far as voting for him goes i'm pretty sure if literally everybody voted for someone else he would be defeated but most people probably do vote for him, plus all the structural reasons why there's no strong opposition

Unquestionably yes, he's now at the point where his popularity is low enough that it's not at all certain whether he'd win a fair election. Surprise, all his opponents are being jailed for corruption or straight up killed, and the elections are run directly by his goons with no monitoring allowed.


He collected all this power over time because started out super popular, and it's important to know that he got super popular because the klepto-capitalism installed by american and western interests was a complete disaster for average russians in the 90s. The late days of the soviet union sucked but we made things worse.
