“Putler Kaput!”

Russians Begin to Think about Russia After Putin

Anti-government demonstrators in Vladivostok in January held up signs saying “Putler kaput!” — an indication that some Russians are beginning to think about their country “after Putin.” In the words of one commentator, this is more “a symptom” of current problems than “a scenario” for the future.

Prosecutors in Primorsky Kray, Moscow’s Kommersant reported, are considering a request from the administration there that charges be brought against those carrying such slogans during a demonstration on 31 January 2009 for threatening the Russian prime minister with violence.
