    Don't think this started with Vlad.
    Haven't read whatever they have by way if a constitution but I rather doubt it guarantees free speech. US may be a rarity in that regard.

    Here's what our dear leader had to say about the Russian leader:

    Two peas in pod. We need our Constitutional guarantees now more than ever.

    Pity we were so inconsistent at that for the previous administration. The judiciary did overturn a lot if his excursions over the line but not all.

    the Patriot Act and Asset forfeiture still stand.
    The judiciary will be busy with the current administration.
