Denis Voronenkov
Danziger on Kiev shooting

Danziger: With Extreme Prejudice

Last week Denis Voronenkov, a former Russian legislator, found out that criticizing Vladimir Putin and his friends is a very unhealthy activity. As noted by Danziger, a gunman shot Voronenkov on the street in Kiev, Ukraine, just days before he was scheduled to testify against Viktor Yanukovych (the ex-president of Ukraine and Putin puppet who employed Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort). Voronenkov is the latest in a series of Russian legislators, diplomats, and other officials to die more or less mysteriously abroad over the past several months. Next semester, the Russian studies curriculum will include screenings of The Godfather.
