“Putin is more of an oligarch rather than a dictator. In other words, he wants to rule like Stalin and live like Abramovich,” this is the viewpoint expressed by chess ex-world champion Kasparov in his interview to Spanish periodical El Pais.While trying to look like a democratic leader, he really ruined the Russian state, since Putin’s Russia is corrupted from beginning to end, as Kasparov believes. He summarized that it reminds of the feudal power.
In Kasparov’s opinion, today’s Russian president Dmitry Medvedev is only an outward appearance of a liberal leader. He greatly resembles the head of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
