    Rule by fear,opposing Putin shortens your life span. Litvinenko acusses Putin of killing Politkovskaya ,two weeks later he is poisened . Berezovsky ,although his death was not proven conclusively as murder was a opponent in exile .Yesterday Nemstov another critic. Putin is getting up there with Kim Jong ding dong .
