Alex(ei) of the Russian Dilettante's Weblog sums it up nicely, too:

Reports of this "brawl," oddly perhaps, have affirmed my conviction that Putin's junta must go. I'm not sure about Putin himself, but the people he brought in to work for him in the Kremlin -- mostly from St. Petersburg and the KGB -- have been consistently displaying two qualities that are deadly when mixed: belligerence and patent, unprecedented incompetence. Yeltsin's kleptocratic lieutenants seem efficient and sophisticated in comparison.
