RUSSIA'S TWO HIGHEST COURTS FACE CONTROVERSY 
The independence and the standards of Russia's judiciary have been
frequently questioned and President Dmitry Medvedev, stressing his
professional interest as a lawyer, has repeatedly made some vague
statements calling for reforms. Two events in one week suggested that
the time may have come for specific actions.

1. TWO SENIOR JUDGES OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT QUIT

2. SUPREME COURT BANS JEHOVAH'S WITNESS PUBLICATIONS AND A CONGREGATION

Sometime after 9 p.m. on November 27, a homemade bomb derailed a luxury
express train running from Moscow to St. Petersburg with about 700
people on board, the Emergency Situations Ministry announced late on
November 29. As we go to press, the number of fatalities has reached 27,
with 94 injured hospitalized, and some passengers still unaccounted for.
Russian media reports agree that the explosion was the worst terrorist
strike outside the North Caucasus since two planes were downed by
suicide bombers in 2004. In his December 3 press conference, Prime
Minister Vladimir Putin said that "we have done a lot to break the spine
of terrorism" but conceded that "the threat of terrorism remains very
high."

MEDVEDEV AND PUTIN SING DIFFERENT TUNES
Or Do the Two Heads of the Russian Eagle Harmonize on a Higher Level?

Differences between President Dmitry Medvedev and his one-time mentor
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin keep surfacing in public with increasing
frequency. Medvedev's targets of criticism include institutions and
policies set up by Putin. The president's tenor is politely oblique, and
so far Putin has not responded to his nominal boss - or at least not in
public.

1. MEDVEDEV REPRIMANDS, OBLIQUELY, UNITED RUSSIA PARTY

2. UNITED RUSSIA'S NEW PLATFORM CLASHES WITH MEDVEDEV'S MODERNIZATION
PLAN
