Looks like Reuters already tried and convicted Putin, according to this columnist. I don’t read anythiig from his point of view.

Obviously, when the media censors something, I beleive the opposite of their biased conclusions.

Evidently you missed…..”Putin has quietly enacted laws which will strengthen his hand in his battle against dissent, including legislation envisaging tougher punishment for people involved in riots and imposing life sentences for various “terrorist” crimes.[ID:nL6N0NS5HT]

He has also approved tighter controls on bloggers, some of whom have emerged as opposition leaders and have used the Internet to criticize Putin and arrange protests. [ID:nL6N0NL3VF]“
