In Russia, the chopping of heads begins

Russian President Vladimir Putin is said to have ordered the house arrest of two senior FSB officers.

Chief of the FSB's "Fifth Service" Colonel-General Sergei Beseda and his deputy Anatoly Bolyuk were reportedly arrested on suspicion of providing faulty intelligence about Ukraine

As a separate development, Ukraine's national security council chief, Oleksiy Danilov, has claimed that several Russian generals were fired.

More suffering is expected, but there is also a chance to increase pressure on Russian leader Vladimir Putin from within.

Could be an attempt by Vladimir Putin to provide his domestic audience with a fall guy for self-inflicted wounds in the vein of Joseph Stalin's purge of the Soviet Union.

"Siloviki," those Russian intelligence officers who profited from the kleptocracy of Vladimir Putin, would have me more than just worried if I were one of them.
