Putin's energy weapon

The daily runs an opinion piece by Gary Kasparov published by the Wall Street Journal in which the former chess champion, who has become one of the fiercest critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin, considers Gerhard Schröder's appointment to a high-level post in the Russian gas giant, Gazprom. "...Germany's most powerful politicians and businessmen can be purchased the way a Russian oligarch might buy an aristocratic Bavarian estate (...). "...Mr. Putin has made the nation's energy resources the center of his ruling clique that has erased the lines between public and private power and assets. (...) Mr. Putin has made a priority of further tightening the unholy bond between his regime's internal and external goals and the company that provides most of the natural gas to Central and Eastern Europe."
