A reminder: "Putin is a dictator"
What Masha Gessenwrote in the New York Times in 2012 is worth remembering:
Yes, I really mean to say that Putin is a dictator. The only reason this is still questioned after all that we have seen in Russia is that Western leaders and Western media refuse to call him one — while being perfectly content, for example, to brand Belorussia’s Alexandr G. Lukashenko this way. For this I see no good explanation.
