    I stake my claim

    Based on a post by Roger L Simon, I hereby stake a claim to a new word:

    Checkistocracy- which translates as rule by the intelligence services.

    It applies to what is happening in Russia under Putin, as he puts his Chekist cronies into positions of power. I looked for a word that describes this situation, and can't find one. Hence, Checkistocracy.
