Gorbachev repeats the mantra

As he has been saying for a while, former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev has once again called Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who is running for the presidency yet again, to stand down or be swept away.

Gorbachev was in general supportive of Putin during his first two terms in President, but has been one of the most vocal in recent calls for him to resign.

He repeated his demand in an inter new with the Dozhd TV channel, as reported here in the Guardian on 9 February 2012
We can only hope that Putin listens…
