    • Sad that the fuckers can only mobilize themselves for the sake of some tosspot from a crypto-nazi party that is led by a demon: Zhirininovsky. Not surprising though.

      • So far its been peaceful. It wouldn’t take much to get the people going though. Like in Maidan, it was peaceful until the Berkut set tires on fire and rolled them into the protesters.

        • Careful what you wish for redders! The only RSM that would be desirable for Russia and the world would be one where the revolutionaries have the same or similar ideology as Boris Nemtsov or Garry Kasparov. If there was a revolution inspired by the ideas of Zhirinovsky, then the outcome would be worse than Lenin, since a huge nuclear arsenal would be in the hands of a madman filled with hate.
          If on the other hand there was a Navalny revolution, they would end up with someone only marginally less dangerous to his neighbours than putler.

          • Sure, there’s a chance of that but the main theme thus far has been toward freedom and representative government. Things that Putler hates. Besides that, any turmoil in Mordor is welcome in my book. I imagine a day when there is so much turmoil in Putintopia that all the military are recalled to control it and Ukraine gets whole again.

            • I thought they were protesting because a guy they like, who is from a nazi-like party, has been arrested? Not really an anti-putler demo at all as far as I can see. Do you think any of them give a monkey’s wank about what putler is doing to his neighbours?

    Sergei Furgal was in politics for a long time after the purported murders in 2004-2005, for which he is NOW being charged with. The mobsters in the Kremlin played it smart by waiting all this time before slamming him with these charges two years after he soundly defeated the Kremlin’s own candidate for the region’s governer’s seat.
    This is the mafiosi’s usual methodology, besides other well-known treatment of undesirables (sudden-death-syndrome).
    If the Ruskie people are smart and brave they will pick up on the rave and who knows, maybe it will even reach the capital city of the crime syndicate country.
