Russian President, Vladimir Putin, being the ever-diplomatic, popular populist that he is, is saying some very fair, credible things about the incarceration of Pussy Riot. Via The Guardian:

Vladimir Putin has said the three jailed members of the anti-Kremlin punk band Pussy Riot “got what they asked for”, days before a Moscow court is due to consider their appeal.

“It was right that they were arrested, and the court’s decision was right,” Putin told a journalist at NTV, a state-run television channel, during an hour-long documentary aired in honour of his 60th birthday on Sunday.

Wow! It’s nice to still have politicians that are “of the people.” In fact, Putin is so down to earth that we would like to do away with the President title and just call him, “Poots,” feels more in-line with the his “average Joe” image.
