Don,

One thing I wanted to comment on was Погибать/погибнуть. I've found in Chekov and some earlier Russian writings that it is sometimes used to mean a social or political 'murder', somewhat like a character assassination. I've found it's analogous to "I will ruin you," with the same connotations. Ever heard of it being used like that?
Don responds: Hm… I wonder if you are actually thinking of губить/погубить?
