As in the days of Stalin so too now in the days of Putin? I hope not!
"PUTIN = STALIN-TYPE PURGES"
From MARCONI through Harry at Sharkhunters the original article seen at the Mail Online
"Putin sacks EVERY commander in his Baltic fleet in Stalin-style purge 'after top brass refusal to follow his orders to confront Western ships'"
* "Up to 50 officers in Russia's Baltic fleet have been sacked by Vladimir Putin"
* "Among those sacked were the head of the fleet and his chief of staff."
* "It came after the Baltic fleet reportedly refused to confront Western ships"
* "Sacking has been describe in Russian media as a 'Stalin-style purge'"
"sacked 3. Slang Dismissal from employment: finally got the sack after a year of ineptitude."
See also from the Alexander Boot blog an entry "Russian generals are dying to reveal a secret" the subject of which is Stalinist purges of Soviet military men of high rank and status. That pattern of "purging" continues to this day?
