The only flaw with that analysis is the presumption that Putin and his clique are Marxists, which I doubt severely.

Russian patriots undoubtedly, but they saw what Marxism did to their country, and the Russian Orthodox Church, and are all billionaires (some more openly than others) doing well out of capitalism.

That doesn’t mean they don’t support idiots like Corbyn however - the USSR did throughout the Cold War, but as useful idiots rather than allies or possible rulers.
