    For Russia, A Dark Horizon

    Due to the current economic crisis, Vladimir Putin is facing, for the first time since his rise to power, the prospect of real political instability.

    Nearly 86,000 people have signed a letter asking President Medvedev to pardon Svetlana Bakhmina, a former lawyer for Yukos. Bakhmina, who is due to give birth within weeks, is in a prison camp.
