VLADIMIR PUTIN’S RUSSIA A VIRUS THAT MUS BE CONTAINED?


Chess champion Garry Kasparov outplayed nearly everyone in the world for 22 years. Today the Russian grandmaster is taking on his most formidable opponent, President Vladimir Putin.
"Putin's Russia is a virus. You don't engage the virus, you have to contain it," he told me.
Kasparov is one of four debaters Friday night in Toronto questioning the West's response to Russia: 'engage or isolate?'
He's been  fiercely critical of the west's "failure" to effectively take on Putin. He likens the Russian leader's political tactics and power to Adolf Hitler's in the years leading up to the Second World War.
"Putin has his finger tip on a nuclear button," says Kasparov. "The only thing he cares about today is staying in power, and staying in power for him means he must demonstrate himself as the only saviour of Russia."
"Regimes like Putin's do not allow robust opposition to function," he says. 
"At the end of the day, it's all about the middle class in Moscow recognizing Putin's rule brings Russia to a dead end and there is no 
other choice but to rise up."
