Barring accidents voters in Russia will elect Putin again. Just when Turkey is invading and slaughtering people in Afrin, Syria, with Putins personal permission. With just one word ..NYET .. Putin could cancel the Fly Permission as he did before when Turkey shot down a Russian plane, and Erdogan’s invasion would grind to a halt.
Now for gas pipelines and arms deals Russia lets the Turkish Hitler Erdogan indulge in genocide to boost his personal powers. But what a vile bastard is Putin, bathing in mass nationalist adulation, when with just one word he could STOP the massacre of a people and their brilliant revolution.
reposted viaThe next Putin election is on March 18. The Inauguration rite after the reelection will take place in conditions of domestic terrorism and nuclear war threat. Russian security service have started mass repressions against all the dissenters with the regime, exerting unprecedented pressure for every dissident from liberal opposition movements to the anarchists.
Federal Security Service (FSB) conducted a series of arrests and raids on the homes of known anarchists and antifascists in Autumn, 2017.
Six anarchists from Penza were arrested and charged with preparation of a coup d’etat. The only evidence of “preparation” was the fact that all the detainees had played airsoft. During several months the detainees were exposed to everyday tortures, until they pleaded guilty.
Two anarchists were arrested in Saint Petersburg in January 2018. They also were exposed to the same tortures as Penza anarchists. Officers made them learn the confession and repeat it to the investigator.
One of the kidnapped anarchists, Victor Filinkov, was taken to a forest where he was tortured. Ilya Kapustin was also arrested and exposed to racks, he did not make a confession, so they nominated him a “witness”.
