Cheka This Out


This would be creepy under any circumstances, but as a backdrop to Putin's power grab it's especially disturbing:

A new statue of the founder of what became the KGB, Felix Dzerzhinsky, has been unveiled in a small town outside Moscow.

The monument was commissioned by the town authorities.

Some believe the event is part of the gradual rehabilitation of the once feared Russian secret service under President Vladimir Putin, himself a former officer of the KGB.
