    No. 11: Ramzan Kadyrov talked about attacks on him and his desire to eventually retire

    There was news sometime ago the seemed to suggest Putin wanted Kadyrov out.

    Found it: Article on Nov. 26: “According to some Moscow commentators, Ukrainian radicals, urged on by the West, are planning to launch a war against Ramzan Kadyrov”

    I mentioned: “Must be a misdirection. Probably Putin who wants him gone.”

      It’s far more likely that the FSB want Kadyrov gone, not the dwarf. It’s no secret that the FSB are less than happy with the dwarf protecting Kadyrov and allowing him to make the central authorities in Moscow powerless in Chechnya. This includes the FSB, which has next to no authority in Kadyrov’s Chechnya- a state of affairs which the FSB can’t accept.

        Thank you. You threw better light on it.

    As usual the economic news is the most important in my opinion, especially item 5: “Rubble predicted to collapse by early 2018”.

      And just like the Roman Emperor Nero who played his fiddle while watching Rome burn down to the ground, Putin the Russian Mongol and Pompous Pederast plays his toy balalaika while watching Muscovy disintegrate into oblivion.

        It is inasmuch as it confirms the dwarf’s drive to make Dwarfstan a neo-Stalinist state. The dwarf has shown increasing Stalinist tendencies including show trials, though so far without mass deportations and executions as far as we know- which doesn’t mean that they won’t take place if the dwarf feels sufficiently threatened.
