When I lived in Russia, people sometimes asked me: Is it dangerous? Aren't you afraid?
I answered: It's not really dangerous. I keep my nose clean. After all, the most dangerous people in the country are the police.
Here's yet another example of what I'm talking about.
Of course, the charges that Russian police officers stole $230 million have not yet been investigated. And they will not be investigated. Just as the death of Sergei Magnitsky will not be investigated. It is just one of thousands of cases that where justice will never be obtained.
It appears that the Russian security forces have not changed appreciably since the days of Stalin. Do you really expect that anyone will be held accountable for the monstrous crimes of that era? Of course not.
