    I read about this incident in a Swedish paper. The header was "The Russians want their country back". It was a really touching article actually. Also, apparently several people in Russia had discovered pre-filled voting papers, filmed it and posted it online. People were so outraged that the biggest demonstration in the history of modern Russia had taken place. It was a really well written article actually. If this is true, it is an outrage.

    What do you think people will do? Will there be a Russian spring, or is that too cheezy and unrealistic (it doesn't seem like Egypt and the other actually achieved much in the end....)

    If Russia is going to be some sort of dictatorship I guess we simply have to cross our fingers and hope it'll remain peaceful and that it will look after its citizens. Pretty discouraging situation...

    Will there be a Russian spring
    I hope it won't. The biggest demonstration in Moscow involved about 25000 people and was peaceful. Moscow has more than 10 000 000 inhabitants, so the demonstration isn't that great.There were harsher protests in 2005
    because of the monetization of benefits. There were very big demonstrations and strikes in 1990s, but Yeltsin managed to keep the power despite being very unpopular.

    No one wants yet another Russian revolition. I think if the authorities aren't stupid then people will be heard.

    p.s. How difficult it's become to type posts here. The cursor is disappearing all the time, especially when arrow kyes are pressed.

    I would be a lot more surprised if elections in Russia were honest.

    Wind of change

    I follow the Moskva
    Down to Gorky Park
    Listening to the wind of change
    An August summer night
    Soldiers passing by
    Listening to the wind of change

    The world is closing in
    Did you ever think
    That we could be so close, like brothers
    The future's in the air

    I can feel it everywhere
    Blowing with the wind of change
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away
    in the wind of change

    Walking down the street
    Distant memories
    Are buried in the past forever
    I follow the Moskva
    Down to Gorky Park
    Listening to the wind of change

    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow share
    their dreams
    With you and me

    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away
    in the wind of change

    The wind of change
    Blows straight into the face of time
    Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom
    bell
    For peace of mind
    Let your balalaika sing
    What my guitar wants to say

    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow share
    their dreams
    With you and me

    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away
    in the wind of change



    Ветер перемен

    Я иду по Москве
    к парку Горького
    Слушая ветер перемен
    Августовский летний вечер,
    Мимо проходят солдаты,
    Слушая ветер перемен.

    Мир сужается.
    Думала ли ты,
    Что мы можем стать ближе, как братья?
    Будущее таится в воздухе.

    Я чувствую его повсюду
    Дует с ветром перемен
    Перенеси меня в волшебное мгновение
    В мерцающую ночь

    Когда дети завтрашнего дня будут мечтать
    О ветре перемен

    Гуляя по улице
    Далекие воспоминания
    Погребены в прошлом навсегда
    Я иду по Москве
    к парку Горького
    Слушая ветер перемен

    Перенеси меня в волшебное мгновение
    В мерцающую ночь
    Когда дети завтрашнего дня делятся
    своими мечтами
    С тобой и мной

    Перенеси меня в волшебное мгновение
    В мерцающую ночь
    Когда дети завтрашнего дня мечтают
    О ветре перемен

    Ветер перемен
    Дует прямо в лицо времени
    Как ураган, который будет звонить в колокол
    свободы
    Для спокойствие разума
    Пусть твоя балалайка поет
    О том, что хочет сказать моя гитара

    Перенеси меня в волшебное мгновение
    В мерцающую ночь
    Когда дети завтрашнего дня делятся
    своими мечтами
    С тобой и мной
    Перенеси меня в волшебное мгновение
    В мерцающую ночь
    Когда дети завтрашнего дня мечтают
    О ветре перемен

    If this is true, I can't think of a more backward and oppressive dictatorship surrounded by civilized neighbors.

    Воспроизведение песни запрещено в эфире радиостанций. Это связано с возросшей популярностью композиции, которую в течение последнего месяц стали гораздо чаще просить поставить в эфир радиослушатели.
    When some song gets popular it gets banned from being played on radio? o_O
