What would happen if someone assinated Putin?  Putin has made enough enemies, but what would happen if someone took his ass out?  Would that start WW3 or would it diffuse the situation in the Ukrane? I don't think there is another character that could rally the Russians like Putin.

The dozen or so mafia/business guys that run Russia would put another guy in and never miss a beat.  

Much hay would be made of it though... America would get blamed, Ukrainians would get blamed... probably Poles and Jews would get blamed....

Obama would apologize...

The list of Putin enemies has to be long, from the islamist, to Ukranians, to Cheychens, to Russians that don't want to revert to the bad old days of the Soviet Union.  What if Hitler was killed before WW2? would WW2 be avoided? If he was taken out by a Russian or a Cheychen, then the Russians would not have the revenge factor of going after the Ukraine.

Lets say a chechen did it or a rival Russian, someone not connected to the West or Ukraine. Would the Russians still be going after Ukraine or would they just loose interest after Putin is out of the picture, this is all about Putin consolidating power, first the Olympics, now this.  He has a lust for power.

Eh, the Russians don't fuck around.  If they found someone dumb enough to pull the trigger, I'm sure their entire family would be deaded.

power vacuum.  RMP would fill the void and invade Canada solidifying the unspoken bond of Communist Russia and the Soviet Canadian Union.

If it was internal and turned into a bloody civil war it would be really bad for the world.  It would be interesting to see their military tactics though.

I would think that most of Europe would want this. Because the  Russian oligarchs would divide up Russia amongst themselves and would not have aspirations of expansion or the personality to  rally the Russian people.

Assassinated by a Ukrainian nationalist?  An excuse for tighter security and escalation.

A micro drone flew in through the window and blew up in his ear?  Time for peace talks.
