Alexander Mercouris

As always a fine summary. Just two comments:

1. Udaltsov is supposed to be a Marxist Leninist. Navalny is a liberal nationalist. Their politics are supposedly diametrically opposite. Yet here they are seeming allies in a common cause. One wonders for how long? Bluntly I think both have a very limited shelf life. I expect the the next generation of Russian leaders to be different.

2. I wonder whether it is Anglo Saxon skepticism that makes us both ask for actual evidence of fraud in the parliamentary elections as opposed to inferences drawn from statistical tables? I notice by the way that despite the much publicised success of some independent and opposition deputies in the Moscow municipal elections United Russia still won by what by any standards is a comfortable majority.

Welcome!

  • Welcome to "Other Points of View" on Russia. We believe there is need in the public forum for a venue which offers opinions and facts that at times may differ from the prevailing view in western media.

    Our point of view is not political, is not theoretical, and is not academic. It comes from decades of working at the grassroots of Soviet and post-Soviet society and being avid watchers of Russian politics, economics, history, societal conditioning and current mindsets. Please review our history in order to better understand our perspective on Russia today.

    This blog has a companion program, the Russia Media Watch (RMW), which analyzes select pieces of western media for accuracy or inaccuracy of content based on 17 objective criteria. Analyses are then sent to the journalist, the publication and to a wide list of American Congress members, think tanks, business and civic leaders throughout the country.
