Rogozin and the reintroduction of the death penalty for economic crimes

Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Dmitry Rogozin, who must surely, in the course of a long career at the top in Russian politics, have made some friends that have earned a bob or two by slightly less than legal means, now proposes shooting people for economic sabotage at the new, much-delayed, Far East cosmodrome. 

First useful English expression here: "It takes a thief to spot one."

Second useful English expression here: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

Растраты зарплатного фонда на дорогостоящие покупки, которые допустил бывший субподрядчик строительства космодрома Восточный — «Тихоокеанская мостостроительная компания» (ТМК), — достойны самого сурового наказания. «За такое надо не сажать, а расстреливать», — написал по этому поводу в четверг, 16 апреля, на своей страничке в Twitter вице-премьер Дмитрий Рогозин.
