Putin holds regional governates hostage.

Mr Putin signed into law a bill that scraps elections for regional governors and allows the president to nominate candidates instead.

Mr Putin proposed the bill after the Beslan hostage tragedy.

The plans have been criticised by the West as a threat to Russian democracy... officials say the changes are needed to strengthen national unity.

A patriot act.
