Can Russia move on from Putin? I’d say that they have no choice. His business and political model is that of a 13th Century village chieftain. He is seeking to drag his own nation (and the world with it) back into some atavistic absurdity and kleptocratic tyrrany of brutality and darkness. If humanity and creative compassion as collaborative intelligence and productively competitive camarederie between all nations can not exist, then we might as well all just give up now as civilisation will have failed. Sic simper tyrranis – it is not a matter of why, how or if the autocrat will be overthrown, it is surely only a matter of when.
