Putin Assassination Plot

Telegraph | Vladimir Putin assassination attempt ‘foiled’

“Russian secret services have foiled an attack on President Vladimir Putin close to Red Square, it has been claimed. A man with a sniper rifle and Kalashnikov assault gun was found and detained in a rented apartment overlooking Moscow’s St Basil’s Cathedral, on March 2, the day of the Presidential election in Russia.”

Oh dear. The Lubyanka receives another inmate, albeit briefly. I am sure once he has been questioned he’ll be on his way to Siberia.

“It was unclear why it had taken so long for the alleged assassination bid to be made public…”

My guess would be because that is how long it takes to work a subject.

What I can’t understand is why anyone would want to shoot Putin, after all he is extremely popular, at least according to the State controlled media and he has no enemies, that aren’t in some form of gulag or exiled.
