Orchestrating a crackdown on protestors and oppositionists in the capital would be unpopular, but could be the plausible next step for Putin - with this latest cold reception to his return to the presidency yet another blow to his popular legitimacy. The violence seen yesterday could well be the start of a broader crackdown, composed of subtler elements, such as attempts to dilute the opposition’s power by suborning individual oppositionists or opposition groups, as well as through heavy-handed crackdowns on street protest and opposition leaders.
