I have been referencing in various posts since I read it The Invention of Russia by Arkady Ostrovsky.
I have done this because it is a really good history book.
But most important, it lays out the Putin playbook.
If you read the book and therefore know the playbook you will see why donnie is doing what he is doing.
One of Putin’s first activities was to eliminate what had become the beginnings of a free press in Russia.
Remember, donnie is stupid, but he’s cunning.
