Does Putin Love Russia?

In all the kerfuffle over Rudy Giuliani's assertion that President Obama doesn't love America and the media grilling of Scott Walker in search of a response, few have noticed a similar event that took place in Russia.

On February 1, noted governmental critic Victor Abalyshev accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of "not loving Russia," and "lying about how his policies will impact the lives of Russians." The media in Russia hasn't made a big deal of this the way the American media has with Giuliani's comments.

On a sad but unrelated note, Victor Abalyshev died suddenly last Thursday in a traffic accident. Russian police determined that he was at fault, apparently falling asleep while driving and crashing into a bridge abutment in a one-car accident.
