    Completely agree with this. The Buzzfeed piece is indeed a curious mixture of admission and unsustainable and warrantless denial. Also (and obviously I have a personal interest here) the claim that Navalny was convicted purely on uncorroborated plea bargain evidence, which in Russia supposedly cannot be questioned, quite simply takes my breath away.

    For the record some years ago I wrote a piece about Tymoshenko's case on my own blog, which because it was based entirely on western news reports I now happily admit was in its details almost entirely wrong.
