Silent dissent

The Other Russia writes that organizers of March of dissent in last minute decided to cancel the demonstration planned to have taken place in Moscow yesterday. The opposition did not want to risk mass detentions and violence by the police after the local officials refused to sanction the rally.

I am displaying my silent dissent from distance by not mentioning – apart from this post – the inauguration of Dmitri Medvedev as the puppy president of Russia later today. It took seven years for Putin to bring back the Soviet rule. Unfortunately there are those in the west that misread the development.
