Gleb Pavlovsky: Putin Adviser Who Became Harsh Critic

From a Washington Post obit by Brian Murphy headlined “Gleb Pavlovsky, Putin image adviser who became harsh critic, dies at 71”:

Gleb Pavlovsky, a former Soviet dissident who was sent into exile and then reinvented himself as a political spinmeister in post-Cold War Russia, helping craft the public image of President Vladimir Putin before breaking ties and decrying Putin’s authoritarian grip, died Feb. 27 at a Moscow hospice center. He was 71.
