Russian election protests
How I remember
How I remember growing up in the Cold War near a U.S. Air Force Base knowing that we were a target of an ICBM thousands of miles away which carried the hammer and sickle. How ironic it is to hear these words coming from the Communist Party of Russia (KPRF) who NEVER was fair in any election for the better part of the 20th century.
I -Communist Party of Russia demands for the resignation of the Central Election Commission head Vladimir Churov as he was “unable to organize a fair and clean election”.
II - Communist Party of Russia said it does not recognize, in particular, the announced results in the republics of Mordovia, Dagestan, Tyva, Chechnya and Ingushetia.
III - Communist Party of Russia states that the passed State Duma elections were unfair and non-free. We consider them illegitimate from a moral and political point of view.
ImGeorgian (I'm sorry I just can't help myself. MORAL??, what political party is Moral?, OMG and to hear this from a Communist Party??)
IV - Communist Party of Russia leader Gennady Zyuganov complained of fraud and described the election as "theft on an especially grand scale".
If the Communist Party of Russia regains control of the Kremlin does anyone really believe they will play fair in future elections??
