Analysis of the election in Russia
- Dear Yura,
Many thanks for your detailed analysis of the election in Russia. This
election was also covered in our newspapers, but not nearly as extensively.
>I am very glad to say you that during this Duma election on 7 December our rightist parties SPS ("Union
>of right forces") and Yabloko ("Apple") have not pass the 5% barrier. So, there will be no right parties
>presented in Duma in 2004-2008 years. Very likely, it is fatal fail of the rightist scum. It may be very well
>that they will never be elected and will disappear completely soon. I hope, many of them will follow
>Khodorkovsky. Our Foreign ministry said that it stops temporary giving vises for epople who want to
>leave Russia. It explains this decision by the fact that the ministry is very busy and overloaded before
>the New Year. But I guess there is other reason. Many theves see clearly that their advocates have not
>entered Duma, and they fear to be caught and enprisoned. So, they might slip away, but now have no
>If you could see how these rightist bastards were howling and crying about their fail, you would be very
>"Oh, it is very dangerous! Putin is building a police state! The national socialists have come to power! It
>is a disaster, but not only ours, it is fate of the whole Russia! We are very anxious, and it is the only
>attitude that can have people who share the whole-human, or liberal, values!", and so on.
>On the other hand, the new leftist block "Motherland" composed of different leftist movements, took 9%
>of votes. Leaders of this block are honest and well-known people. One of them is Sergey Glaziev, the
>only minister who voluntary left his post after Yeltsin's coup d'etat in September 1993 and has delcared
>that it is his protest against this crime. "Motherland" was created only in October. First they tried to unite
>with CPRF, but they failed to agree. CPRF lost about 1/2 of their votes, because its phony character and
>treachery is obvious to most of Russian people.
>For such a new block as "Motherland" it is an obvious success to take 9% of votes + 8 deputees
>elected personally. I also voted for them. It is "Motherland" who was called as "National-socialists" by
>the rightist scum. But they have nothing common with national-socialists. They demand to return
>national wealth to Russian state and oppose rightist Zionists. And, as you know, it is sufficient to be
>called "nationalist", or even "antisemite" and "fascist".
>First place took pro-Putins party "The Whole Russia" with 37% of votes. Together with their deputees
>elected personnaly, they will have 223 places of 450. That means that Putin will be able to adopt in fact,
>any law. That also makes me glad. Then follows CPRF with 12%, then Liberal-Democratic party with
>10%, and then "Motherland". Liberal-Democrats always vote for president. They voted for Yeltsin, and
>now they vote for Putin. Sometimes I find them progressive.
>It is reported by TV that yesterday an American helicopter was shot down in Iraq with a portable anti-air
>rocket "Strela" ("Arrow", made in USSR or Russia).
>Comradely yours, Yura
