Some have wondered if Putin was afraid of what Nemtsov had uncovered, and thus ordered the assassination.That is unlikely, at least in terms of someone receiving a direct order from Putin. Simply put, orchestrating Nemtsov's murder was not worth the trouble; after all, the Kremlin's propaganda machine would have had little problem twisting Nemtsov's report to Putin's benefit.Indeed, even Nemtsov's brazen murder is unlikely to hurt Putin politically. Putin may not have ordered the hit on Nemtsov or any of the others.That stifling dynamic has returned under Putin.Will Putin, like Stalin, unleash his own great terror, and murderously pursue supposed adversaries?In the first decade of this century, it was easy to love Putin.
