Some people want to rename Simferopol 'Putinograd' or 'Putinopol' or something.
I think Putinopoly would make an excellent board game. The counters would be a little green man, a lump of polonium, a chunky signet ring, a length of gas pipe, a brass plate and a solid gold bullet.
Instead of property, a mere frippery, players would accumulate resources. Gas. Platinum. Oil. Uranium. Arms factories. Diamonds. Conservative Peers.
The Go square would be Putin with his hand out. Payment can take the form of funding a loyalist youth group, pro-regime TV channel, a bulbous Orthodox cathedral, a billboard visible from space proclaiming 'oppose gay Euronazis' or something creative like that.
The community chest is open. Are you not a member of the community? Go on. Just grab as much as you can.
You land on the go to jail square. You laugh and move on.
One joins the game after one's predecessor, following a series of unfortunate business reverses, shoots himself six times in the back of his own head.
Nonetheless, the board is crowded. Nichevo. Just play on the board next door!
