BUILDING THE PUTIN MYTH
Kremlin Operatives Hard at Work Extending the Leader's Reign

In Soviet times, criticisms against leaders used the terms "Bonapartism"
and "the cult of personality." Nowadays, reports from Russia simply note
that the building of the Putin myth has accelerated.

"Vladimir Putin will remain national leader, regardless of the post that
he holds," wrote Boris Gryzlov, head of the ruling United Russia party
and Duma leader, in the government newspaper "Rossiiskaya Gazeta."
Gryzlov offered a new slogan: "Modern Russia: this is Putin. Russia
without Putin: this is a Russia without leadership."

1. THE VANGUARD OF YOUTH READY TO DO BATTLE

2. NOT LETTING PUTIN GO

3. PUTIN GOES TO IRAN DESPITE WARNING OF ASSASSINATION PLOT

CORRECTION: A knowledgeable reader pointed out a factual error in an
article in this space last week: The story about Father Patrick
Desbois's research in Ukrainian Jewish history was not broken by "The
New York Times" as we mistakenly stated. The Associated Press has been
covering the French Catholic priest's unique work for quite some time.
