reject double roles by Putin-Medvedev twins?
the first time in years, perhaps since the October revolution of 1917, Russians
have come out on the streets protesting against the
"double" regime of Putin-Medvedev duo, knowing fully well that
the Kremlin cannot tolerate any "indiscipline" on the part of
the leaders and people, and essentially merciless Moscow, trying to
emerge as super power to match- if not to oppose the unilateral dictator
USA- would put down any protest with an iron hand.
post-October struggle during Gorbachev and Yeltsin era were inspired by
the state in order to make Russia strongest among the 15 former Soviet
republics. However, full control of the state over the nation, policies and
people has been absolutely tolerated in Russia as a matter of
protecting the "national interest". Corruption and crime are dominant
features of all former Soviet states.
the self-appointed guardians of Russia, Medvedev and Putin are facing a deep
crisis, with the nation wide demonstrations and recent elections exposing the
fragility of a regime long touted as stable and backed by a docile populace. The
ruling United Russia, promoting Putin as Russia’s only hope, has won the
"disputable" parliamentary election with just under 50% of the vote,
a sharp drop in its support. Even with vote rigging, support for the ruling
United Russia party fell dramatically in the December 4 elections. Its candidates won only 238 out of 450
parliamentary seats, compared to 315 in 2007.
mounted in the immediate aftermath of the election, sparked by widespread
reports of electoral fraud. Several
thousand people have taken to the streets of Moscow to demand an end to
Putin's leadership after his United Russia party lost ground in the election,
shouting "down with Putin" as international observers in Russia's
parliamentary elections speak of flagrant violations.
an all-Russia character, thousands of
people joined protests on 11 December in cities across Russia in the largest
anti-government demonstrations in recent decades. Apart from Moscow and St.
Petersburg – the most important cities, protests were also held in Sochi,
Murmansk, Chita, Vladivostok, Kazan, Nizhni Novgorod, Omsk and dozens of other
cities across all seven time zones.
60 percent of Russia's 110 million registered voters cast ballots, down from 64
percent four years ago. United Russia held a two-thirds majority in the
outgoing State Duma, which allowed it to change the constitution unchallenged. Only
seven parties were allowed to field candidates for parliament this year, while
the most vocal opposition groups were barred.
exit polls cited by Russian state television showed Putin's party with less
than 50 percent of the vote in elections, a significant drop reflecting
Russians' growing weariness with his rule. It was predicted that Putin’s party
would get 238 of the Duma's 450 seats, a sharp drop compared to the previous
vote that landed the party a two-thirds majority in the State Duma, allowing it
to change the constitution.
first official results with 15 percent of the vote counted also showed only
about 46 percent for United Russia, compared to 64 percent in 2007. The exit
poll conducted by the VTsiOM polling agency had United Russia tallying 48.5
percent, and another done by the FOM polling agency had it winning 46 percent
of the vote. With about 96 percent of precincts counted, United Russia was
leading with 49.5 percent of the vote.
parties and election monitors said even this minus 50% figure for United Russia
was inflated, alleging ballot-stuffing and other significant violations at the
polls. Only seven parties were allowed to field candidates for parliament this
year, while the most vocal opposition groups have been denied registration and
barred from campaigning. Several parties complained of extensive election
violations aimed at boosting United Russia's vote count, including party
observers being hindered in their work. Corruption
has been the chief accusation leveled against United Russia by Navalny, one of
the country's most influential bloggers arrested by Putin. "This is a
label applied not to a specific political party but to authorities in
general," Putin said, promising to tackle the issue.
parties complained of extensive election violations aimed at boosting United
Russia's results.The Communist Party appeared to benefit most from the protest
vote, with exit polls and the early returns predicting it would get nearly 20
percent, up from less than 12 percent four years ago. The socialist Just Russia
and the Liberal Democratic Party led by mercurial nationalist Vladimir
Zhirinovsky are also expected to increase their representation in the Duma.
Communist chief Gennady Zyuganov said his party monitors thwarted an attempt to
stuff a ballot box at a Moscow polling station where they found 300 ballots
already in the box before the start of the vote.
Russian authorities created an imitation of a very important institution whose
name is free election, that is not free and is not elections. Mikhail Kasyanov,
a former prime minister during Putin's first presidential term, said he and
other opposition activists who voted are under no illusion that their votes
will be counted fairly. In Vladivostok, voters complained to police that United
Russia was offering free food in exchange for promises to vote for the party.
from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) consider
even this minus 50% votes is bogus and say the election was slanted in favor of
Putin's party, United Russia. An interim report from an elections-monitoring
mission of OSCE noted that "most parties have expressed a lack of trust in
the fairness of the electoral process."
media were flooded with messages reporting violations. Many people reported
seeing buses deliver groups of people to polling stations, with some of the
buses carrying young men who looked like football fans. Incidents of
ballot-stuffing were reported at several other stations in Moscow,
Rostov-on-Don and other areas. In the southern city of Krasnodar, unidentified
people posing as Communist monitors had shown up at polling stations and the
real observers from the party weren't allowed in, Zyuganov said.
page on the Russian social networking site vKontakte calls for "making it
hot for the thieving authorities". Russia's only independent election
monitoring group, Golos, which is funded by US and European grants, has come
under heavy official pressure after Putin accused Western governments of trying
to influence the election and likened recipients of Western aid to Judas. The
group had compiled some 5,300 complaints of election-law violations ahead of
the vote, most of which were linked to United Russia. Roughly a third of the
complainants — mostly government employees and students — said their employers
and professors were pressuring them to vote for the party.
close ally, China says it believes that this Russian Duma election reflected
the wishes of the Russian people. Accused in the West of trampling on
democratic freedoms and denounced at home by protesters over the conduct of a
parliamentary election, Putin won not only China's support , but also a peace
prize. The organizers of the Confucius Peace Prize, set up in a riposte to
Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo winning the Nobel Peace Prize last year, said they
had chosen Putin because of his opposition to the NATO attacks on Libya-
most farcical statement because Putin supported NATO terrorism in Libya
first by abstaining form voting on the issue in the notorious UNSC
and then never refusing to question the legitimacy for massacres in
Libya. Russia is interested only in WTO entry while the USA has been
obstructing to its admission and made the Libya invasion a perfect tool
to achieve that. .
observers criticized the election and USA Clinton suggested it was neither free
nor fair. Putin accused the USA of stirring up the protests. But China's
Foreign Ministry stood by Putin, saying the results were "universally
affirmed". Putting a positive spin on the disappointing returns, Putin
said that "we can ensure the stable development of the country with this
result." But he appeared glum when speaking to supporters at United Russia
headquarters and limited his remarks to a terse statement.
Critics say the former KGB agent has rolled back democracy
and stifled post-Soviet freedoms. A few dozen activists of the Left Front
opposition group tried to stage an unsanctioned protest just outside Red
Square, but were quickly dispersed by police, who detained about a dozen of
them. Thousands of police and interior troops are on alert in Moscow, after one
of the biggest opposition rallies in the city centre for years. Police made 300
arrests as protesters chanted "Russia without Putin". Among those
held was Alexei Navalny, a top anti-corruption campaigner and fierce critic of
Putin. Later in the evening, police said they arrested more than 100 other
opposition demonstrators in the capital and about 70 in St. Petersburg when
they attempted to hold an unauthorized rally.
has warned that a parliament with a wide array of parties would lead to
political instability. A counter-demonstration by Putin supporters was held
beside Red Square on December 06 amid reports that opposition supporters were
planning a new protest. Having
exposed of its fake fight against corruption, the Kremlin
reportedly instructed the police not to crack down on the demonstrators lest
they provoke an even broader outpouring of popular anger.
the outset, the result reflects the strongman Vladimir Putin’s declining
popularity ahead of his bid for the Russian presidency in March. Putin, waiting
to enter Presidency next year, has played down his party's losses at
parliamentary election as inevitable for a party in power.
Dmitry Medvedev has insisted the election had been fair and democratic. It
should be noted here that earlier, seeing the declining fortunes of his
party, Putin named his handpicked successor as president, Medvedev, to lead
United Russia's list.
is a discovery of Putin as Putin himself was a invention of Boris
Yeltsin. Russians seem to be unimpressed by the Putin-Medvedev dual power
arrangement, rather they dislike this. President-Premier power swap
between Putin and Medvedev has not gone well with the voters. Putin wanted to
see United Russia do well in the election as a sign of support for his return
to the presidency in a vote now three months away. He previously served as
president from 2000 to 2008. Medvedev is eager to get into Putin's premier
shoes as per the "exchange program".

leaders have so far enjoyed their undisputed status. Putin, successfully
entered the Presidency in 2000 by consuming the corpses of Chechens,
drinking their blood, is being groomed by the United Russia party. The
vote will further weaken positions of Medvedev, whom Putin promised to name
prime minister after the presidential vote, a move that has fueled public
Putin and his United Russia party have dominated Russian politics for more than
a decade, popular discontent appears to be growing with Putin's strongman
style, pervasive official corruption and the gap between ordinary Russians and
the country's florid United Russia has been seen increasingly as the party of
corrupt officials, and its description as a "party of crooks and
thieves" has stuck, flashing up as the first suggestion on Russia's top
web search engine.
party saw its majority in Russia's parliament weaken sharply a humiliating
setback for the man who has steadily tightened his grip on the nation for
nearly 12 years. It reflected a strong public frustration with the lack of
political competition, ubiquitous official corruption and the gap between rich
and poor, which will pose a growing challenge to Putin's power. Despite that,
Putin should still have no problem getting his laws rubber-stamped. Even the
Communists have posed only token opposition in the outgoing Duma, and the two
other parties have consistently voted with United Russia. Opposition
leaders demand Russia to hold an honest presidential election and allow
opposition candidates to register for the race, if he doesn't want to be booed
from Kamchatka to Kaliningrad. Opposition leader Boris Nemtsov said after the
vote that Putin's "honeymoon" with the nation was over.
resolutions passed at Bolotnaia Square in Moscow included the demand for the
nullification of the parliamentary election results, the holding of new
elections, the resignation of Central Election Commission Chairman Vladimir
Churov, the official registration of opposition parties and the immediate
release of all political prisoners. A new rally in central Moscow has
been called for December 24, against United Russia, with organizers insisting
that the government has two weeks to meet its demands.

attending the anti-regime protests. Medvedev announced a probe into the
allegations of electoral fraud which is
intended to try to assuage popular anger in an effort to prevent the
demonstrations from expanding. Skyrocketing prices for food and basic utilities

people officially entering the ranks of the poor from 2010 to 2011. Corruption

is wrong to take people's approval for granted. Putin sought to
stem a quick decline in United Russia's popularity by trying to expand its
support base with a so-called Popular Front, an umbrella group for unions,
professional associations, veteran groups and others. But the effort has
brought no visible result, and Putin last month received a stinging blow to his
own ego when he was met with catcalls after a mixed martial arts fight at a
