Yesterday’s post had an article on Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky facing new charges. The Post explains the prosecution “…President Vladimir Putin’s highly successful campaign to tame Russia’s oligarchs using its politically pliant justice system.” I’ll repeat ‘politically pliant justice system’. Hmm, if you are going to say it, just say it. Corrupt, despotic, autocratic, I don’t know but politically pliant justice system sounds like watering flowers with urine.
