Letter: Civilian deaths on Putin’s hands

Civilian deaths on Putin’s hands

In response to Stefan Edlis’ Feb. 28 letter to the editor in The Aspen Times, “In defense of Putin,” Edlis claims Vladimir Putin’s a good guy. Eh, OK. A chum? A pal? A straight shooter? Well, for sure a straight shooter! Just ask the Russian-made, Russian-fired, surface-to-air missile that blew a commercial, civilian, nonmilitary jet out of the sky. Stefan, how many people were murdered with that Russian missile? You talk of “think of rocket technology.” So sad. So very sad. They never had a chance.
