Storchak Release Not a Game Changer

At least that’s what Alexander Lebedev tells the Wall Street Journal about the release of Sergei Storchak:

Alexander Lebedev, a billionaire banker and friend of Mr. Storchak who has been one of his strongest public defenders since his arrest, said it is “too early to judge” if Mr. Storchak’s release signals a loosening of Kremlin control. “If tomorrow there is an announcement that they have revised their control of (state) TV, registered some parties, and done a few more things, then I would see it as a trend,” he said.
