    Looks like Russians recognize the 'Putin' police state.

    Russians seem to be doing what other European citizens fail to do, criticize the system and cast protest votes. I have a question: are the spoiled votes counted? Normally, this is a protest vote in principle but usually one can check that they abstain and that is recorded.

    I guess it's probably disregarded in Russia since there's so much corruption and fraud with the voting system in Russia?

    But, the idea that Russians realize that they need to protest and not accept these parties is good. Soon, they will assert Democracy doesn't work and they will be right. But, hopefully, they don't resort to wanting just another authoritarian government. Imho, the problem in Russia is the widespread corruption and culture of unethical behavior. Bribes, unethical justice system and corruption that persists allowing thefts and acquisition of power.

    From my reading, I would say there are no worthy candidates to vote for. Russians should protest that everyone should abstain or vote 'for no one' and demand this gets recorded.

    There is no choice and the 'democracy' that the Russian leaders praise is a fraud. But, Russians still have to be careful. It seems anytime there is division and protests, some special interest organization obtains riches from the Bankers and funds these fraudulent 'revolutionaries' to tyrannize Russia (aiding in its collapse to enforce and implement more fascist/'communist' rule). Look at history for examples. In the meantime, these articles are of interest.

    I just read the comments on RT. WOW! I didn't know the CIA, NATO, Israel (Jews in general but mostly Zionists), Globalists, NGOs, The West, Western Media, Western Capitalists/Corporations, MTV, the internet, the USA as a whole and I personally agitated the populace and financed the protests. (sorry if I left anyone out)

    Came here for some sane dialogue. I'll check back later.

    Ни по одному центральному каналу ни слова о том, что в двух крупнейших городах страны полиция и военные разгоняют демонстрации, что за 2 дня задержано больше тысячи человек. Только празднование "чистой победы".

    So you propose Russians to bear out with Putin for another 30 years? or better till he dies?

    I can say one thing. I personaly just tired of the same faces all the time, I want something new.

    If there'll be something bad, Russians will continue to fight. But how the situation is now, ther just can't be worse! I yesterday looked at candidates for presedental elections in France and was crying, how much choise they have compared to us.

    I we destroy current dictatorship, there will appear many new parties I have no doubt about it. (Navalniy, Chodorkovskiy, Kosianov etc etc)
    ///////

    I wonder when did they have time to make flags with "pure victory" words. It looks like they desperately try to prove that they didn't cheat. lol


    there were arrested more then 300 people, many will be arrested for 15 days.

    interesting that some sourses tell that the aithorities invited in Moscow, Chechyen regiment of Kadirov which is situated in the North-Est of Moscow to deal with demontrations in case. Putin and Surkov don't trust Russian military which can side with demonstrants.

    So our "democratic" leaders prefer to oppress ordinary people not with Police force but with Chechyen military which usually fight with dengerous terrorists and basicaly hate Russians.

    Still, don't wait for Arab Spring, it'll never happen, we are not Arabs.

    Yukionna, it's really not my place to have any opinion.. But, this could be a good thing, because many Arabs have died since this began..====> Current death toll since the beginning of Arab Spring.. 30,634–37,228+ (International estimate, ongoing) in less than 2 years.. =\

    I don' think the protests are really huge. Nothing new has happened. I'm against parliaments, elections and "democracy" in general. I'm against the protests as well.

    Во-первых, для того, чтобы учиться в школе и институте. Во-вторых, он не самый бесполезный. К чему вопрос?

    Скажите, пожалуйста: который политическая система должна заменить демократию, на ваш взгляд?

    In Russia there is no democracy and has never been...
    So unless you have lived in a democratic country you are against something you have not experienced.

    Ну вы им явно владеете лучше, чем большинство изучавших в школе и инсте. Думал догадаетесь, раз нет, то объясню - если вы против тех атрибутов цивилизованной страны, то вы не хотите жить в цивилизованном обществе и быть цивилизованным человеком. А таким людям обычно иностранные языки и иностранный мир не интересны. И у меня и возник вопрос, почему вам это интересно.

    It's not that I stand for that guy in general, but I think he was talking sarcastically (thus, that was neither rude nor offensive). Just to be fair.

    I bet North Korea wouldn't make a "mistake" like this.

    Fox News and CNN passing off riots in GREECE as protests in Russia.




    I am not saying RT is the ultimate objective news channel, but as a European I've seen these silly "foreign" news stories from countries I know well so many times. It's amazing what passes for foreign news on some channels.

    Meanwhile, blaming the US and Hillary Clinton for lack of confidence of voting inside Russia seems like going to far!
