imagine there’s no ???

“What is this — Russia?”
It occurred to me that I needed to ask as follow up… “Czarist Russia, Communist Russia, or Putin’s Russia?  And is there any difference between the three?”
“Putin’s… and probably not.”

From there, I spot this quote in from New Republic:

Last December, I met up with Gleb Pavlovsky, the man who helped Putin cruise to victory in 2000. “It’s impossible to say when this system will fall, but when it falls, it will fall in one day,” he told me. “And the one to replace it will be a copy of this one.”
