Russia it seems is suffering a second plague this year, an odd one that seems only to kill Russian Billionaire with ties to Russian oil, gas and President Putin by inducing such misery that the victims kill themselves and their families in tragic fits of depression.

20th April Sergey Protosenya, 55, his wife Natalya, 53, and 18-year-old daughter, Maria, were found dead at their Spanish mansion. The scene suggested the women had been stabbed, before Protosenya hanged himself in his garden, ruled as Murder/ suicide
Putin is even more surrounded by yes-men and insulated in his own echo chamber than Trump, which is understandable when the penalty for telling him an unpleasant truth is prison or death. Like Hitler's circle, as the war goes badly, many of his cronies doubtless choose to take the other way out when they fall into disfavor, rather than face possible torture and a miserable death by execution or neglect. (Also like Hitler, Putin is fond of punishing entire families rather than just individuals, accounting for the multiple murder/suicide deaths; they don't want to leave their family to suffer in their stead.)
