When I look at societies that are confused, benighted and dysfunctional like Arab society and, alas, the Russian one I am saddened to observe a phenomenon I would describe as pointless discussions. A pointless discussion takes place when an influential group that seeks to preserve its weight imposes on society a patently idiotic discussion. Everybody begins to discuss: Is the Earth round or flat? Lets have a discussion. Is it proper to go to the American Embassy? Lets argue about it.
This is history taking revenge for Boris Yeltsin having picked Putin as his successor. I am confident that Zyuganov didnt even think of making a come back this way, riding the momentum of a boomerang emblazoned in national patterns and decorated with Stalins enormous portrait. Twelve years under Putin has brought the voter to this point. But its not as if Putin came to us from a well. He came from Russian history...
Within a month and a half since the Bolotnaya Square protest, Vladimir Putin has made, as I see it, one devastating, but inevitable, mistake: he opened his mouth.
They barred any party from the elections that had at least some right to call itself an opposition party, got rid of the “Against all” option on the ballot, and made the very meaning of the word “elections” meaningless. Even...
THEY were waiting all these years for an orange revolution on Revolution, Manezhnaya or Old Square. That revolution, however, took place in peoples conscience.
The results of these elections should be annulled and new elections should be held. The Russian leadership should take the initiative to do so.
We, the Russian third class, the virtual party of Alexei Navalny, showed the ruling kleptocracy that if they want to save Russia from revolution, it needs to dump Putin. We were able to make Putins life-long dictatorship a thing of the past. Exchanging it for the lifetime dictatorship, or even two-month dictatorship, of comrade Limonov, wasnt exactly part of my plans...
There is a legal way for influencing the authorities, and it needs to be taken advantage of. Seeing as how the authorities are spending so much effort to disgrace and intimidate election observers and journalists, that means they are worried about this tool. The authorities are scared, and they are doing acting accordingly...
Blogging idol Alexei Navalny has joined the organising committee of Russian March, a nationalist demonstration. He also supported the Marchs campaign and called on all his fans to take part in it. Among other things Navalny put up a campaign video on his blog, viewed by thousands daily, taken from the Russian Marchs website with the chant stop feeding the Caucasus
The debt will be paid. By all...
Vladimir Putin has obviously concocted the army and navy's all-out rearmament for his third/fourth term as president. Even legendary Soviet battle equipment will no longer come in handy...

My first question: theres this guy named Gennady Timchenko, who just so happens to be a good friend of Mr Putins. Timchenko trades Russian oil through an offshore company, and not too long ago became a Finnish citizen. Is there nothing fishy about this?..
Putin's plan turned out to be more clever and sophisticated than I had presupposed in terms of the person it used as the locum tenens. Putin gave him the features of a young, forward-thinking man who came out for modernisation, infatuating all of Putins elitist naysayers at the same time. Now thats what I call witty trickery!
- Mikhail Khodorkovsky: Hes just afraid of competition When Putin says that he never does his friends in, this is because he is afraid to get on the wrong side of the siloviki who are close to him. From the correspondence between the editors and Mikhail Khodorkovsky, inmate of Correctional Facility 7 of the Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate for the Republic of Karelia, the city of Segezha
