Russia: “Danilkingate” – or “Parfyonov/Volochkova Syndrome”

Power Vertical reports on Natalya Vasilyeva, “Russia's latest whistleblower” – who “[revealed] that the judge in Mikhail Khodorkovsky's recent fraud trial was pressured from on high […].” LJ user stas-kucher calls (RUS) the scandal “Danilkingate” (after Viktor Danilkin, the judge). Journalist Andrey Loshak notes (RUS) on the “Parfyonov/Volochkova syndrome,” referring to Leonid Parfyonov‘s Nov. 2010 speech and Anastasia Volochkova‘s recent dissent. Echo of Moscow‘s Ksenia Larina hosts discussions (RUS) on the journalistic aspects of Vasilyeva's case on her LJ blog and Facebook page.
