Garry Kasparov: The Russian oligarchy’s next target?

Former world chess champion Garry Kasparov has been lucky. The founder of the United Civil Front, he’s an outspoken pro-democracy, anti-Vladimir Putin activist.

Basically speaking, he’s lucky he’s not dead. Alexander Litvinenko, Paul Klebnikov, Anna Politkovskaya and countless others died fighting for their beliefs.

His column in today’s Wall Street Journal (the full article is available here) openly bashes Putin and theRussian oligarchy in a way that makes me wonder if he’s the next to go. I certainly hope he isn’t.
