The circle around Putin who are pressing for these various prosecutions
are called the "Solovki" or "Little Nightingales".  They are ex-KGB
heavies, Putin proteges.  I *think* that "Solovki" is a slang name
for the Solovetsky Islands (Arctic Sea), notorious component of the
former Gulag.

Anyway, "they sing by night".

Black pot calls kettle brown.  Soros probably fears for his investments
in the ex-USSR.  I don't know his role in the currency manipulations
of the ruble 1992-present, but that's his style.  He is not
disinterested.  Odd, since he seems to be in cahoots with Gorbachev
and that pesky NGO-NWO crowd.  Maybe not odd at all.
