As we approach the 105th anniversary of the death of the last Russian czar, Nicholas II, it’s important to remember how and why that last czar died. The Russian people, sick of the tyranny they had been forced to live under by a self-serving and callous leader, rounded him up as he tried to escape a coming coup and shot him to death (and in his case, they shot his family, as well).
Putin must be reminded of the fate of Czar Nicholas II as he continues his power-mad quest to expand Russia’s borders and gobble up the poor and fledgling country of Ukraine, a new democracy with far less funding and power than the larger, more imperial Russian government. As Putin demands the advance in Ukraine’s cities, his own soldiers appear to be resisting in any way that they can, loathe to kill the innocent people of Ukraine where many still have family ties.
Now, a millionaire businessman in Russia is offering his own form of resistance against his president: he’s offered a million-dollar bounty on the head of Russian President Vladimir Putin, to be paid upon his arrest.
‘I PROMISE TO PAY $1,000,000 TO THE OFFICER(S) WHO, COMPLYING WITH THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY, ARREST(S) PUTIN AS A WAR CRIMINAL UNDER RUSSIAN AND INTERNATIONAL LAWS. PUTIN IS NOT THE RUSSIAN PRESIDENT AS HE CAME TO POWER AS THE RESULT OF A SPECIAL OPERATION OF BLOWING UP APARTMENT BUILDINGS IN RUSSIA, THEN VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION BY ELIMINATING FREE ELECTIONS AND MURDERING HIS OPPONENTS AS AN ETHNIC RUSSIAN AND A RUSSIAN CITIZEN, I SEE IT AS MY MORAL DUTY TO FACILITATE THE DENAZIFICATION OF RUSSIA. I WILL CONTINUE MY ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE IN ITS HEROIC EFFORTS TO WITHSTAND THE ONSLAUGHT OF PUTIN’S ORDA [HOARDER].’
