Voices of Dissent in Putin’s Russia: The Kleptocratic State & Political Repression

Political opponents and opposition journalists have been murdered in Russia since Vladimir Putin was first elected President in 2000. At the same time, cronies of the Russian leader have gotten rich, creating a “klepocratic regime” or as one blogger put it, “a party (united Russia) of crooks and thieves.” Putin’s “managed democracy” rewards his supporters through corrupt practices and punishes critics with strong arm methods including rape, beatings and murder.
