It is apparent the new
Russian regime under Putin-Medvedev
duo is bent upon retaining the old Soviet model of control and inventing
to oppress the people and opposition that do not fall in line of
total control.Since Russia promotes western colonization process,
especially massacres of Muslims, Russian leaders have enough freedom
now to deal with the domestic opponents the way they deems fit.
Realignment of US-Russia
terror ties got an unexpected boost, in favor of Russia, since Sept-11
hoax Russia is doubly happy about its new fate as a junior partner of
USA. Putin-Medvedev duo, promoting crony capitalism and state
crimes, seems to have developed cold feet
at the rising anti-regime protests across the nation following poor showing by
their United Russia party though it retains the majority in a reduced manner and
malpractices in the parliamentary poll.
Russian regime is eager to split the opposition and invalidate
the opposition parties though state maneuverings. As a result,
Russia on January 27 disqualified Putin’s liberal challenger Grigory Yavlinsky
from the March 4 presidential ballot, in a move slammed by his supporters as
undermining the legitimacy of the polls.
Facing Russia’s largest protests since the turbulent
1990s, Medvedev last month proposed reducing the required number of signatures
— a move the opposition said was being made too late. Yavlinsky, who was shown,
winning less than three percent of the vote in most polls, founded Yabloko in
1993 as Russia struggled with a post-Soviet economic crisis that left many
impoverished and looking for social protection.
And, Russia’s central elections commission said it
could not accept nearly a quarter of the registration signatures gathered by
Yavlinsky’s Yabloko (Apple) party because they were either photocopies of
originals or fakes. EC announced that it
will not able to register Yavlinsky as a candidate.
Russia’s strict presidential election rules require all
independent candidates whose parties fail to win seats in parliament to collect
two million signatures in a two-month span to win registration. The restriction
has been heavily criticized by candidates as well as the growing protest
movement against Putin, who will be standing for a third Kremlin term in the
polls after his four year stint as prime minister. The disqualification
“undermines the legitimacy of the vote. The authorities were particularly keen
to make sure that Yabloko which sent thousands of observers to December’s
parliamentary elections — was barred from monitoring the presidential vote. This
was ordered directly by Putin,” said Sergei Mitrokhin, chairman of the liberal
Yabloko party that Yavlinsky founded in 1993.
deliberately changed the presidential election rules. Putin had doubled the number of signatures
required for candidates’ registration in 2004, a year in which he stepped up
his campaign to centralize power by also announcing an end to direct elections
for regional governors. The presidential
election rules were tightened again in 2007 when Putin was about to hand power
over to his hand-picked successor Dmitry Medvedev, giving candidates just a
month to rally their support instead of the previous three.
59-year-old economist Yavlinsky always promoted
more socially-oriented policies and twice ran for president, failing to
the 10-percent barrier in both 1996 and 2000. He made a surprise return
Russian politics last year after refusing to face Putin or then his
"associate" Dmitry Medvedev in two past polls that he termed
The USA-UK terror twins
always critical of Moscow, now closes its deadly eyes on Russia's
democracy deficits cheerily because the NATO terror syndicate has
ensured the Russian support for their beastly crimes in Afghanistan,
Iraq, Libya, Pakistan and elsewhere.
USA and Russia are also now the secret strategic partners. While USA
supplies terror goods to Israel, Russia ships terror goods to India.
