ARE PUTIN AND MEDVEDEV DRIFTING APART?
Medvedev Backs the Vladivostok Interior Ministry Official Putin Ordered
Fired

An unexpected, almost freakish sequence of events in Russia's Pacific
Coast city of Vladivostok is attracting increasing attention as a
possible indication of what may come to pass in a country that is just
beginning to feel the impact of the worldwide economic collapse. Barely
mentioned in the Russian press, on December 21, 2008, the OMON riot
police dispersed a demonstration in the Primorye (Maritime) territory.
No oppositionists, the demonstrators protested new, higher import duties
on foreign-made cars.
