No surprises there, it was a foregone conclusion Putin would win

Really, I think Putin is good for Russia.

I read also Western news, and from what I discern, your medias are very intent on depicting him as corrupt, and as being a dictator. Basically, he doesn't look good in your medias. I think this because he is very protective of Russia, and would guard it from Western manipulation. And the west doesn't like this, obviously. Okay, so make a demon of him.

As for whether the election was rigged or not, well I can't tell you that. But I don't think so, at least, perhaps it was affected by some factors like powerful influence of certain people and institutions, but I don't think it was directly orchestrated. Putin has much support, and he has good record of success.

But it makes me angry when I encounter people saying that Russia and her government will cause World War Three. Because Russia will not allow itself to be subjugated by the US Empire? So your media makes Russia look like some evil place, growing suspision amongst your societies. Western imperialism needs to die away, and it will be the bringer of its own downfall. Russia will stand for itself, not for anyone else. So it's true, the west needs to keep to its own affairs, and stop meddling.

And believe it or don't, but we're actually not bad people over here.

Yep, no surprise there.

Since we're coming up on the end of the world, we need to make sure that all the corrupted ego-maniacs are in their places, so WWIII can kick it off.


Well now that would require Newt to win in 2012. He most closely fits that role for the American seat at the ego-maniac, WW-III planning table. Obama works in the seat too, but Newt is one I could see throwing an outright temper tantrum and doing something really stupid from just that.


Putin and Obama get along though. Well...Obama is subservient to Putin, which works for Putin just as well, I'm sure.
So if it's fate we're seeing play out, Newt really is the one from central casting to play the American President in World War III. Now watch...He'll actually win.

It's good that he is elected. Someone needs to keep israel and the US in check... without him in power, some other CIA/Mossad patsy would be in charge of one of the biggest countries in the world with a descent army...

Then the world would be in ALOT of trouble...

Good job Putin!

This reminds me of a joke I heard the other day, and with all of the accusations of voter fraud, this is what is going around in Russia:

Putin is sitting behind his desk, waiting for the election results when his campaign manager comes in and says, “Boss I have good news and bad news.”
Putin, looks up and says, “What is the bad news?”
His election manager says, “Zyuganov received 75% of the vote.”
Putin exclaims, “Holy crap! What is the good news?”
The reply was, “You got 76% of the vote.”

I really don't know all that much about Russian Politics so excuse me if you think I'm crazy, but I kind of like Putin. He seems like a manly man who loves his Country and isn't afraid to say what's on his mind. Sure, the Kremlin is corrupt, but what Government isn't?

It's true. My gov is corrupted too... I don't know a single government in the world that is not corrupted in a way or another. But the question is the government at least try to make good decision for their people. Some government just don't give a damn to own country and would sell themselves to any one/country that pays more.

I Did not see anybody else post about this so here it is, im not usually one to submit the articles, lol.

Are we really surprised about this? Prepare for Mass protesting today, because a lot of people feel the elections where rigged.

What do you think? Second place only got 18% of the vote? I guess that means Medvedev will be prime minister. Rinse and repeat.


I wouldn't be too worried. As long as Vlad's got armoured glass on his limousine, he's all good. A bullet proof vest might also help, but then again, that is probably necessary in today's Moscow anywayz.

I do not know if this incident was in reaction to Putin election, but here is a news blurb...

rt.com...

...the all-girl band Pu**y Riot rushed into the Christ the Savior Cathedral in mini-dresses and masks.
They quickly performed a song entitled Holy S**t before being escorted out by security.


Notorious for their publicity stunts, the flamboyant group described their provocative act as “a punk prayer: Mother of God, drive [PM Vladimir] Putin away.



they face 7 yrs for hooliganism according to article

I have no problem with Russia to be honest. It is actually a country and a people i admire for various reasons, top of which (if im honest) is that every Russian i have ever met is basically a Brit with a funny accent!
(same humour, similar beliefs, etc).

I will say though that Putin isn't exactly democratic, is he? This election will allow him the chance of at least another term after this, so he really is turning into leader for life, which is a bit of a backward step for your nation. I will give him props for one thing this election though. Every other rigged election comes with ridiculous endorsement figures, like 95% voted for them. At least Putin has been clever enough to leave it at 65%, encouraging just that little element of doubt! Well played sir, a lesson to other wannabe dictators!

Do you honestly not think it is rather disgusting that Putin and Medvedev can literally just swap jobs seemingly at will? That cannot be good for the democratic processes of your nation.

I've been predicting this ever since those pictures came out of him and GWB riding horseback, shirtless.

I dont think the man has ever been out of power, even when not holding an official office.

The scariest thing about Russia is that they're basically a mafia controlled, third world country, with a first world military machine. Not a good combination in my opinion.
