Chaos gives a dictatorship the chance to rise - #PutinCon
: "It's not Putin who is so strong, but we are too weak." About our willingness to ignore, tolerate or embrace Putin's aggressive agenda. #PutinCon
“‘Schröder’ is actually Russian for ‘the corruption of political elite in another country.’ ... And @DanaRohrabacher is a mini-Schröder.” -@reitschuster #PutinCon
“We don’t know when or how the Putin regime will end but we know that nothing lasts forever.” - Vladimir Kara-Murza #PutinCon
"If a leader is truly popular with his people, why would he need to suppress them?"

@vkaramurza at #PutinCon
featured at #PutinCon as a Putin asset and traitor to the US.
"Money laundering is a serious crime and Americans take money laundering by a head of state or former head of state seriously." @PreetBharara #PutinCon

Think he's signaling something here?
Russia "lies. It cheats. Nothing it signs can be taken for granted as the word of a nation-state." --Michael Carpenter, former foreign policy adviser to VP #PutinCon
I was "criticized personally by president Erdogan of Turkey, banned from Russia by...Putin and I was fired by Trump. So sometimes u wanna judge a person by their enemies," @PreetBharara says at #PutinCon
#PutinCon, @PreetBharara's talking about a case he prosecuted vs a Turkish pal of #Erdogan. The Turkish prez demanded to Joe Biden that the WH fire Preet. "They tried that w/the wrong White House!"
: Skripal was mere instrument. Targets: 1) Britain, 2) Russians–Russia under siege by hostile West may galvanize ppl to vote, 3) Russian special services thinking of cooperating w/ Mueller collusion investigation. Msg: We can strike you+family anywhere. #PutinCon
“The resilience of civil society in Russia is remarkable. Anna Politkovskaya and Natalia Estemirova were killed for reporting on Chechnya, and still the Memorial (Russian human rights group) is reporting on Chechnya” Miriam Lanskoy of @NEDemocracy at #PutinCon
.@Kasparov63 reminds us that "being anti-Putin is not to be anti-Russian. To be anti-Putin is actually pro-Russian."

The people of Russia are not the enemy. But make no mistake - Putin's kleptocratic band of int'l criminals are a threat to democracy and world peace.

The generation born and raised under Vladimir Putin and knows no other political reality is the very same generation that goes to the streets to protest and they are the reason why Putin is afraid of genuine elections, says @vkaramurza #PutinCon
"Western countries can do more to stop Putin & Russian corruption: go after Putin's cleptocrat cronies."

@navalny’s message at #PutinCon
Great presentation by @IlvesToomas at #PutinCon:
"We know that Putin cares about the #MagnitskyAct, because (via lawyer Natalia) he asked Trump Jr to kill it."

@Billbrowder in conversation with @PreetBharara at #PutinCon
