Kasparov Outlines Why Russia is a Great Place to Invest
Everything is so orderly and transparent.
Perhaps most damning are the official statistics in places such as Chechnya and Dagestan, where there was little monitoring. With an outlandish 99.5 percent voter turnout, 99 percent of Chechen votes went to United Russia. Do not forget: This is a party led by Putin, the architect of the second Chechen war, which razed the Chechen capital, Grozny, less than a decade ago.
As usual, the game was given away by lackeys who are too eager to please their Kremlin masters. One can imagine what the United Russia bosses think of Hugo Chávez losing by 2 percentage points on the same day. Amateur!
