Oh my Putin

LA COPERTINA DEL numero in edicola del New Yorker ha testata in russo e dedicata a Vladimir Putin. L’articolo che regge la copertina: Evan Osnos, David Remnik e Joshua Yaffa raccontano la storia di Putin e le interferenze con le elezioni del 2016. Cosa sta succedendo veramente?

Money quote: “"Posted in one of the grayest of the Soviet satellites, Putin entirely missed the sense of awakening and opportunity that accompanied perestroika, and experienced only the state's growing fecklessness. At the very moment the Berlin Wall was breached, in November, 1989, he was in the basement of a Soviet diplomatic compound in Dresden feeding top-secret documents into a furnace. As crowds of Germans threatened to break into the building, officers called Moscow for assistance, but, in Putin's words, 'Moscow was silent.'"”
