Recall the poor unfortunate Aleksandr Kornilov, and his social network of some renown.

Having been released from police custody he promptly left Tallinn for Moscow, where he and his handlers were to sure to have something to talk about. He closed his totally legitimate news site, said it was for maintenance.

There was even a conference, and a seat at the table just for Aleksandr.

All was well, but then person or persons unknown apparently sent out some unspeakable video in Kornilov's name. How does one say "We own you, motherf*cker" in Estonian?

Inquiring minds may find my second look at Kornilov's network of some interest. Stay tuned...
