In an interview with Financial Times reporter Kathrin Hille in Moscow just days before his murder, he had this to say about Vladimir Putin...

    At 82% approval rating, One thing that you cannot say, however, is that Putin’s actions are unpopular. Considering the sharp upward shift in his personal approval rating, it seems clear that a great majority of Russians support the aggressive actions of their government to “protect” Russian-speakers in Ukraine. Is this support unanimous? No, of course not. But while one should recognize and commend the bravery it takes to publicly oppose the Kremlin in the midst of a nationalist frenzy, it is a serious mistake to think that such views predominate because they simply do not.

    Russian nationalists cannot help but be extremely biased and anti-American it seems. So are Serbs!

    Wow! Don't go into law. That's not evidence, that's motive. Motive for this crime exists with Kiev, the EU, the US, etc., as well.

    He's under enough scrutiny and condemnation from much of the world as it is right now. Countries heretofore that have been unsupportive of sanctions, or reluctant to participate could be moved. Logic denies this a Kremlin operation. Not that the Kremlin is beyond such an operation, lol.

    As a collective, I don't think so. Many have been murdered, but the opposition has never been silenced.
