The Election Show in Russia

“Kadyrov, the brutal dictator of Chechnya, said that 99.51% of its voters backed Putin’s United Russia party; in the past it has been reported as 100%, while he himself had promised “more than 100%” this time. But the central elections commission in Russia, said that United Russia had won 50.07% of the vote. Maybe Putin’s United Russia party would lose its majority in the Duma, or lower house, and fail to win an absolute majority of votes as in the past”, the media reported yesterday. The also added: “The Russian voters had taken to social media to report apparent violations. A YouTube user in east Moscow illustrated how the pens at booths in school #1114 were filled with invisible ink. In the Siberian city of Novokuznetsk, a user showed how ballot boxes had arrived at a polling site one-third filled with votes. A Moscow user filmed an election official at polling station #2501 filling out ballots as he sat at his desk. Several users filmed buses, nicknamed “carousels”, which appeared to be carrying the same people to various stations so they could vote over and over again. ” It’s the dirtiest, foulest elections of the last 20 years,” one opposition leader said. “We can’t even call them elections; it’s the theft of votes from the Russian people.” It clearly shows that comrade Putin is exactly like comrade Stalin and comrade Khamenei.

We should wait and see what the young Russians do after this stupid election show in Russia. The media also added: “Liberal media outlets faced hacker attacks. The website of radio station Ekho Moskvy, web portal Slon, and weekly journal Bolshoi Gorod were inaccessible all yesterday. The website of Golos, the only independent election monitor, was brought down by a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack, after days of government pressure; it complained its volunteer monitors were not admitted into polling stations around the country. “The government is losing popularity, so they’re using the filthiest methods of theft”, a Russian says. The riot police prevented access to Red Square. More than 100 people were arrested at an unsanctioned protest in Triumfalnaya Square, dragged away by police in riot gear into waiting lorries. Another 50 were held in St Petersburg.” In the year of revolutions and uprisings, 2011, the young Russians should show that they are not stupider than the stupid Islamists in the stupid Arab world. Some ask: “Is 2010s’ Russia is as stupid as 1910s’ Russia?” What the young Russians will do after this stupid selection show, will show us how stupid or how wise today’s Russians are. We can wait and see what the young Russians will do in the next days.
