    Interesting, I cannot find any profiles of this Sadyr Zhaparov anywhere at all….KGB controlled “opposition”??? “Former” Communist turned Islamist???

    Navalny is as much a “crusader” as he is an astronaut. In russian, people like him are called “he-goat provocateur”. All true opposition is either exiled or dead there. Only “permitted” ones remain to lead their herd under police batons.
