And, of course, the US, France, UK, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey ALL believe him. They are all democratic countries that have great respect of International Law. Here democracy means freedom to kill & the Law is the Law of the Jungle.

Mr. Putin is too soft on the Jewish Oligarchs whose loyalty comes to Israel/US first and foremost, why would a patriotic Russia be a dual citizen? look at all the traffic of money out of Russia to New York mostly by Russian Jewish businessmen and entertainers,,,,

The general elections proved how popular Vladimir Putin is, these handpicked punks by the US who oppose Putin are a joke! where is Gasparov? lol.. Putin has eliminated the Jewish oligarchs whom I would say are the most dangerous to Russia because of their first love Israel , by a simple law that if one runs for any political office in Russia one cannot hold any assets abroad. Who took most of the money out of the country in the 90's? #ews!!!!

Navalny is a smart guy. He got 9% of the vote this time which looked more because only 32% bothered to vote. If he can force another round the polls will look something like Sonyanin 89% Navalny 11%. This will cause even less Sonyanin supporters to think they need to bother voting. If Navalny can just get the voter turnout down to 15%, he stands a chance of winning.

Here we go again.

Mayb e somebody can explain to me why do I keep hearing about Navalny in national news in Croatia, and keep seeing this guy on TV? Every day I keep hearing about Moscow elections, about «great new hope», person who will «democritize» Russia and so on. This guy is biggest fraud ever, US agent provocateur, he will do huge mess in next couple of days, and West media cant wait for new camapign of spitting on Russia. But, it seems people never learn, always same bulshit over and over again.

They bent too far backward for this guy....they are rigged alright, in favour of the opposition. Remember who his supporters are....they have experience with this....first in Chile, then at the unfortunate Bush/Gore race, and now blatantly in Russia Federation...Please don't have to prove anything to U.S. just to are giving them too much opportunity to mess with all the good you are trying to do. Nalvaney is a definite stooge. Please put him away.. Who cares what the world thinks.

God is Russia's Champion, people like Nalvaney will fade away.I'm so tired of all the stupid press he gets.

It is healthy for any nation to have an strong Opposition party instead of a buch of mini-parties. The experience of America, Britain or Germany, show that an strong Opposition party is necessary so citizens who are not satisfied with the Governmetn can find a clear alternative....But in the U.S, UK or Germany the national interest of both large parties is essentially the same. The economic policy can change, but the international policy has a continuity.

If the Opposition invests the budget in a different way, and has a different social policy, but the idea to create an Eurasian Union should be shared.

Navalny would bomb Syria without any doubt.

Navalny, what an agent provocateur you are...... Your only place is in front of the bulls en la fiesta de San Fermin ( Pamplona, Spain).


Mike Littlefield 09.09.2013 13:50

He should do what we do in America, keep going to the court until you get what you want.

"Navalny has not yet commented on the invitation, but instead threatened that his supporters would take to the streets if the authorities reject the demand of the runoff."

Time to clean 5th column from our country before it's too late.
