Vladimir Putin jails the brother of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, says an editorial in The Wall Street Journal.
BREAKING NEWS: Riots are happening in America because of a supposed police state while in Russia they are happening for an actual police state. In America at the moment, protests have begun in 15 major cities including Philadelphia, Boston, and St. Louis and police are preparing for a major event in NY where currently there are only small groups gathering. A police headquarters in St. Louis was briefly breached, but the protesters were quickly detained. This won't end well. Either the drunks will get upset that their festivities are being interrupted or they will join in the fun, unrestrained by reasonable minds. Meanwhile, in Russia, riot police have pushed protesters supporting Alexei Navalny into the underground passages of the subway in Moscow leaving Red Square deserted.

Blocked Russian opposition site recommends Opera to outwit blacklist Russian users can run Norwegian browser to get around banned URLs Computerworld - One of the government opposition websites blocked last week by Russian officials recommended that users circumvent the access shut-off by running Opera Software's desktop browser.

The blocked URLs also included opposition sites Grani.ru and Daily Journal; the LiveJournal blog of Alexei Navalny, a frequent critic of Putin's administration; and the website of Ekho Moskvy, a radio station that often takes anti-Kremlin stances. Roskomnadzor, the Russian government's media-oversight agency, added the sites to a blacklist last Thursday because they allegedly contained "incitement to illegal activity" and calls for "participati ...
SOCHI, Russia (AP) -- An interactive website launched Monday by anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny paints a vivid picture of the suspected cost overruns and conflicts of interest at the Sochi Winter Olympics. Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Sochi Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23, making them the most expensive games ever, even though as a winter event it hosts many fewer athletes than summer games do. Navalny claims that Russia spent twice as much as necessary to build at least 10 of the Olympic venues - including the Bolshoi Ice Palace, the Fisht Stadium for the opening/closing ceremonies and the speed-skating arena. Allegations of corruption have dogged preparations for the Sochi Games for years, as reported by The Associated Press and others. Navalny's new website - Sochi.FBK.info - combines data gathered during his own investigations along with media reports and other activists' analysis. Using colorful graphics, the website makes a wide range of data accessible in English and Russ ...

What Merkel's Win Means for Berlin's Allies The Chancellery will be watched closely in the coming months. Foreign policy has never been one of Angela Merkel's strong suits. But several German allies will be watching closely to see how the chancellor might use her new-found power on the international stage. In a result that was closely watched around the world, Merkel crushed her opponents -- and an ally -- in the German election on Sunday, winning a better-than-expected 41.5 percent of the vote. Though it remains to be seen which party she will form a government with, the chancellor has cemented her role as the most powerful politician in Europe. Considering her status in Europe and on the global stage, it is surprising that foreign policy played little or no part in her campaign for re-election. "Merkel has never had a passion for foreign policy," Olaf Böhnke of the European Council on Foreign Relations told SPIEGEL ONLINE on the eve of the vote. "She is happy to be in a leading role in Europe, but many ...

Vladimir Putin Might Seek 4th Presidential Term In 2018 LYNN BERRYAPSep 19, 2013 VALDAI, Russia — President Vladimir Putin said Thursday he may run for a fourth presidential term in 2018, confirming the expectations of most Russians and frustrating those now working to restore free elections in Russia. If Putin runs and wins, it would keep him in power for about a quarter century and make him the nation's longest-serving leader since Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.Putin has largely rolled back on Russia's post-Soviet democratic achievements, sidelining the opposition, reducing the Parliament to a rubber stamp and establishing tight control over the media. He insisted that Russia, only two decades away from the fall of the Soviet Union, is determined to become a democracy, but would find its own path despite criticism from the West. "The kind of government that Russia should have should be determined by Russian citizens and not by our esteemed colleagues from abroad," he said during an international confer ...
Vladimir Putin; Some Want Fourth Term. John Wayne Sitterley President at American Republic Research Center (ARRC) VALDAI, Russia — President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday he may seek re-election in 2018 and charted a conservative course drawn from Orthodox Christian values, saying the West was not an example for Russia. The former KGB spy also defended tough laws he has signed since returning to the Kremlin in May 2012 after four years as prime minister, including legislation critics say in effect bans *** from publicly expressing their sexual orientation. Asked at a conference whether he might seek a new term as president when his six-year mandate expires in 2018, Putin said: "I do not rule it out." Asked by Reuters for clarification, he later said: "It's only 2013 today, there are another five years ahead of us." Putin made his comments to an audience of Russia experts that also included a number of opposition leaders who took part in protests against his rule last year, demonstrations that have dw ...

Alexei Navalny, who is seeking to boost the opposition and increase his own political clout by challenging the Kremlin-appointed acting mayor, weighed in on an issue that has gained prominence in Russia and drawn the attention of the world. Western governments have criticised a law against spreading *** "propaganda" among minors, part of the conservative course President Vladimir Putin has charted in his third term following protests against his 13-year rule. Polls show most Russians support the law, which activists say amounts to a ban on *** rights rallies. It h ...

Russian court finds opposition leader Alexei Navalny guilty of embezzlement, according to state media RIA-Novosti.
Facing jail, protest leader Navalny condemns Putin's Russia Protest leader Alexei Navalny said on Friday he would destroy the political system under President Vladimir Putin that was "sucking the blood out of Russia", after state prosecutors demanded he be jailed for six years on theft charges. Navalny says the trial, in the industrial city of Kirov, is intended to sideline him as a potential rival to Putin. A six-year term would keep the anti-corruption campaigner in prison until after the next presidential election, scheduled for 2018. Navalny, the most prominent opposition leader to be tried in post-Soviet Russia, denied the charge of stealing 16 million roubles ($482,000) from a local timber firm that he was advising in 2009 while working for the liberal Kirov region governor. He looked shocked and exchanged nervous smiles with his wife Yulia after Prosecutor Sergei Bogdanov set out the prosecution's demands at his trial in Kirov, 550 miles northeast of Moscow. Judge Sergei Blinov will deliver a verdi ...

According to a document obtained by RIA Novosti, the amnesty could extend to Alexei Navalny, whose embezzlement case is currently being heard in the Leninsky District Court in Kirov.
“I am proud of Russia,” corruption-fighting blogger Alexei Navalny wrote sarcastically. “It will be the first nation where even a stone falling from the sky becomes the reason for a mega-project aimed at stealing 10 or 20 billion. Fix the roads in Chelyabinsk instead: The pits in them cause more damage in a year than 100 meteors.”
"Another Sharp tactic is to seek change outside the electoral system. This tactic was evident in the 2004 Orange Revolution in Ukraine, where election results were rejected, and in the recent Russian parliamentary election, where Soros- and U.S. neocon-financed election monitoring groups like Golos rejected the outcome of the election and used shills like former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev to call for the nullification of the election. Interference following the Sharp and Soros methodology can also be seen in the presidential candidacies of Russian oligarch and New Jersey Nets basketball owner Mikhail Prokhorov and the backing by western propaganda outlets like the Christian Science Monitor (now derided as the “Christian Zionist Monitor” after its takeover by interests who favor a neo-imperialist U.S. foreign policy) of Moscow street protest veteran Alexei Navalny."

Thousands of anti-government protesters begin marching in Russia's capital, Moscow, ahead of a huge rally and a day after police raided leading activists' homes.
Thousands of Russian anti-government protesters have taken part in a major rally in Moscow to demand fresh elections and a new president. The protest, on a national holiday, came a day after police raided the homes of several prominent activists. One of them, Sergei Udaltsov, defied an order to report for questioning, and instead addressed the crowd. Last week, President Vladimir Putin approved legislation increasing fines for those who violate protest laws. Mr Putin won a third presidential term in March amid protests over alleged fraud in December's parliamentary vote. This is the first big anti-government rally in Russia since Mr Putin returned to the Kremlin, says the BBC's Steve Rosenberg in Moscow. Tens of thousands of protesters, a sea of flags, banners and placards flowed through the centre of Moscow, he says. The demonstrators chanted "Putin is a thief" and "Russia without Putin". "It's obvious they are as frightened of us as they are of fire," opposition leader Boris Nemtsov told the rally. "The ...

Street Provocations in Moscow Ahead of Inauguration May 7th, 2012 • 7:08 AM Some 250 people were arrested and several dozen injured (most of them police) in street clashes during an anti-Vladimir Putin rally in Moscow Sunday. Organizers of the so-called March of Millions, who had a permit for a rally of 5,000 people on Bolotnaya Square, included leading lights of last winter's attempted Snowy Revolution: Sergei Udaltsov of the Left Front, Parnas party leader and neoliberal economist Boris Nemtsov, and self-appointed anti-corruption crusader Alexei Navalny, darling of the Project Democracy support networks in the UK and USA. Those three were arrested by the end of the day. Ostensibly people of widely different political views, their unifying platform was that all recent elections, and therefore Putin's inauguration as President tomorrow, are illegitimate. Udaltsov, in statements shown on television, called on rally participants to violate the terms of the rally permit by marching to the Kremlin and begin ...
