Bill Keller on Putin and Russia

Today in the Times Bill Keller begins his op ed piece with the well chosen words I’ve highlighted below. He could have stopped right there. Of Russia, and Russia in the world nothing more needs to be said.

Putin is bringing Russia down, as if the fall of the Soviet Union wasn’t already enough for the former KGB officer, and it seems he wants to bring the world, or at least the Western world down with him.

The world needs Nelson Mandelas. Instead, it gets Vladimir Putins.
