Remember Chechnya and what Putin did to it? (Putin was in office in May 2000) Russian forces still occupy Chechnya today treating them like crap.

Second Chechen War

Russia established direct rule of Chechnya in May 2000 and after the full-scale offensive, Chechen militant resistance throughout the North Caucasus region continued to inflict heavy Russian casualties and challenge Russian political control over Chechnya for several more years. Some Chechen separatists also carried out terrorist attacks against civilians in Russia. These terrorist attacks, as well as widespread human rights violations by Russian and separatist forces, drew international condemnation.

The exact death toll from this conflict is unknown. Unofficial estimates range from 25,000 to 50,000 dead or missing, mostly civilians in Chechnya.


I'm sure people in Chechnya would vote in drove for the political party and the man that did this... right?


Well apparently they did :
United Russia scores close to 100 per cent in Chechnya

Chechnya, a Russian province long the site of an Islamicist insurgency, voted overwhelming for the country's ruling United Russia political party in the weekend parlimentary election, according to official vote results Monday.

Residents of the Caucasian republic gave 99.48 per cent support to the party, which is headed by President Dmitry Medvedev, in the Sunday poll. Turn-out in the mountainous territory was 99.51 per cent, according to official vote participation counts.


I mean COME ON. It would be like NY voting at 99% for McCain in 2008... IMPOSSIBLE. It would be like Boston voting for the British to stay in the US at 99% in 1776. IMPOSSIBLE. Or Afghanistan voting for occupation at 99%. Or Iraq voting for occupation at 99%. Im-po-ssi-ble.

When Putin goes for fraud, he goes all in.

Why on earth would anyone have expected any other results in this case?

Putin is God in that region... Votes counted against him would have serious consequences.

And we can assume that 'God' has successfully eradicated all opposition.

I love the Russian attitude. "yes we scwered you and yes there is nothing you can do about it!". All this out in plain sight!!!!
I appreciate their "peristroika" in this regard. "Hey world.... We can do whatever we like... Out in the open!!!"

They couldn't really have a 'nice guy' president could they, or rather Putin is what equates to a nice president by Russian standards. All things being relative. If the Russian equivalent of Tony Blair or Obama found himself in the Presidency of Russia, he'd either have to have a lot of strong arm support at the back of him, be entirely in the pocket of organised crime, or be dead, rather quickly.

This is Putin we are talking about here....
Honestly, who here expected otherwise?

Could be worse, he could have gotten 99.58%

They've all been relocated to Siberia, and the few who resisted have been placed under house arrest, and ordered to temporary housing in Chernobyl.

Those scallywag Ruski's what can ya do?

In all seriousness, did anyone expect much different? The only real surprise in big elections is who they next choose to represent them.

Indeed.

The opposition is still weak and divided. The “official” opposition that the Kremlin allows to participate in elections—consisting of the Communists, who attracted a babushka vote of 20 percent; the Kremlin-created pseudo-liberal A Just Russia, which polled 13 percent; and the ultranationalist Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, which got 11 percent—has long since been co-opted and in practice almost always votes with United Russia.
www.thedailybeast.com...

The entire voting process was a sham, the overall control of the country would not have changed no matter what the election results were. The Kremlin runs the show, same as before elections started. The election results are only a number on a piece of paper to be shoved down the throats of those who are robbed, displaced, or discontent, with the message "you chose, deal with it"

I agree the mainstream wants us to believe that the opposition is growing yet everytime when they show pictures of the supposed anti protesters they all look like as if they are Drug addicts, Substance abuse is a common in third world countries.


I guess the western NGOs picked them since they were going to be easier to be controlled with.

From your own link



Drug Addicts The Anti Putin protesters?
i really wonder how those NGOs picks them up, i guess they bribe them first with drugs, what such young fools.

Now that is what I call getting out the vote! Presidential candidate, Vladimir Putin, getting 99.48% of the vote in Chechnya seems about right, because 100% of would have made a big stink. Maybe they had a voting holiday in Chechnya? I mean everyone should stay in doors, and your kind and benevolent benefactors will do the voting for you. It is just a matter of security.

It is amazing what some intelligence officers and a few juiced in cronies can do on election day. From stuffing ballot boxes to muscling would be voters. No election is out of reach and even in war ravaged Chechnya. Its seems the people have warmed up to dear Vlad. Peace and Prosperity in the Caucasus!

Protip: fifty-one-point-whatever prercent victories seem a lot more convincing. Just ask our recent leaders. Any of them, from whatever side of the isle. Same result, greater illusion of power for the masses.

Who wouldn't vote for Putin? This guy is the Russian Chuck Norris...




On topic though... I would vote for him, he has improved Russia incredibly since the time he was president and even though he has made incursions into Chechnya, political relations have been a little better in the last few years...

I admit though that 99% rate is a little high... lol...

Even better is the 49.5 and 50.5% and then the local recount being conducted by your brother and being confirmed using the supreme court that your daddy put in place years before...

NOW THAT'S CONVINCING...
