    If protests bring down Medvedev, this could be very bad news for Putin. If those unhappy with Putin perceive that protesting might bring down its targets and has lower risk, it could turn into a snowball. When members of an elite split and part resort to using popular support or mobs against other embers if the elite, the whole situation can become unstable. I can’t imagine that Putin would want to encourage this sort of thing.
