In Ukrainian uniform, handcuffs on, gray hair disheveled and a somewhat frightened look in his eyes. For example, Victor Medvedchuk – a pro-Kremlin politician with close ties to Putin – (67) went around the world in April. That frightened look is very understandable, because in times of war you never know what to expect, especially when you’ve been given the ‘label’ of traitor.
