No Limit to Paranoia

From the NY Times, anent Russian opinions about what happened to the the Malaysian airliner:

"One such theory holds that whoever shot down the plane was actually gunning for Mr. Putin, whose plane was over Eastern Europe at the time, returning from Latin America, for example.
Another argues that the bodies were actually from the Malaysia Airlines jet that disappeared four months ago — dumped only now to make the separatists look bad.
'In Russia, no one thinks that Russia is guilty,' said Olga Kryshtanovskaya, a sociologist who specializes in studying Russia’s political elite."
