Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A lot of the anti-Russia propaganda seems to work by conflating Putin with anti-Putin Oligarchs who he marginalised or exiled and who now hang out in London imagining they can shape the UK into an oligarch friendly playground. Of course they are quite happy to deflect criticism onto Putin, but their real agenda is in the UK, whereas his is in Russia.

Yeah, you can play degrees of separation to Vladimir Putin and you'll always get there in very few jumps. I prefer degrees of separation to Jeffrey Epstein. Much more fun.
As to Putin himself, maybe he is a Scooby Doo villain who constantly tries, but somehow fails to, murder his personal enemies with poison. Maybe he indeed is behind perfidious plans to destroy western civilization with jpegs of buff Bernie. But in the end there really is no way for me to tell since the Russia panic is too useful to too many people. And I've yet to find any question where it would actually matter.
