    Isn't Kostroma where Navalny was meeting with US embassy employees? If so, then there will be concentration on that area regarding the FSB and what not. There may be some "protests" but it will be very small or at least easily controlled. Paranas party will lose no matter what, but they will still call the elections "unfair" and "poorly coordinated" and they will obtain some sympathisers (probably from this "open Russia" group), and will hold protests. But the protests will be so unpopular, they will be easily quelled, as people are aware what happened to Ukraine after protests being "successful".

    Seems Paranbas party with Navalny only got 5% in Kostroma and are being a bunch of pathetic soar losers, they are gonna hold demonstrations in Moscow demanding a "change in power". So in other words, they cant get elected democratically, so they try to do it undemocratically.

    Dunno why Moscow mayor allowed it. I would have said "you failed to get even a single seat democratically. Now you want change through force? Go F yourselves. I think McDonalds is hiring. Get a new job!".

    Because 3/4 of Russian citizens don't want to participate in any anti-Putin demonstration and there is unlikely such event can happen. Cool

    Putin wins right before the battle begins.

    Navalny says 40,000 will participate. I think it will be usual 5,000 - 10,000 crowed.

    And yeah, McDonalds does have standards. So maybe Golden Sachs? Lol.

    Somehow Zhirinovsky lost the control of his mouth, again.

    http://www.rt.com/politics/315711-lower-house-scandal-pro-putin/

    A representative of the United Popular Front has asked state prosecutors to discipline the Liberal Democratic party’s head, after he called parliamentary majority MPs thieves and accused them of fomenting anti-government riots.

    Co-chairman of the United Popular Front Vyacheslav Lysakov wrote to the Prosecutor General’s Office, saying Vladimir Zhirinovsky’s statements at Wednesday’s session of the State Duma is a violation and should be punished. Talking to Kommersant daily, Lysakov emphasized the letter was his personal initiative and hadn’t been coordinated with the United Russia party.

    The scandalous comments came at the beginning of Wednesday’s State Duma session. The Liberal Democrats’ boss was delivering a speech about the recent elections of the head of the Amur Region. Zhirinovskiy suggested that United Russia’s victory wasn’t fair and said he would ask the president not to receive the victor in the Kremlin. When he noticed United Russia MP Irina Rodnina wasn’t really listening, he became agitated and started shouting. Zhirinovskiy called her immoral and even suggested the whole United Russia party was a bunch of “criminals” preparing a “maidan” or anti-government coup in Russia.

    If he has evidence of the elections being sone wrong or wrong doing, I suggest he presents them. If he is right, he is right.

    Although, his last statement is pute hysterical.

    Zhirinovsky is infamous for his foul mouth and bad temper and I belive these accusation are groundless and just the result of an anger due to his lost in the election.

    Why even f*cking bother? Why haven't the Russian govt. suspended cooperation with this kangaroo court? The European Court for Human Rights strikes again, proving it support of destabilization and subversion, and hatred for Russia....they just ordered Russia to pay €7 thousand for Pro-Navalny rioters:

    ECHR issued the first decision on the "swamp case" ordered Russia to pay € 7 thousand.

    They didn't get 5% - they got only 2%; way below what's needed for even a single seat.

    Losers. Just losers.

    These 5th column rallies claim that there are no fair elections. OK, so where are the opinion poll results showing the
    "massive" support for Navalny and other compradores? This is a very important detail. In NATO states opinion polls
    are routinely used to identify levels of support for parties and politicians. Voting results are usually close to opinion
    polls unless there is some big scandal. We have had in the past various NATO based pollsters showing that support
    for the liberasts is under 15%. Current polling including by the "pro-West" Levada Center confirm that there is no
    large base of support for Navalny, etc. Yet Navalny keeps on claiming he should be, in effect, the president of Russia.

    These SOB tried to repeated what happened in December 2011. The problem is that, Putin's support in Sep 2015 is much much higher than in Dec 2011.

    And 2011 failed so there is no reason for the 5th columnists to achieve anything in 2015.

    But they have to do something anyway, in order to receive money from the West.

    Dunno if it put it in a proper topic... well RT put this article in the tab of "Russian politics".

    http://www.rt.com/politics/316276-government-rejects-bill-to-introduce/

    Government rejects bill to introduce private military contractors in Russia - report

    The Russian cabinet has rejected a bill regulating the work of private military companies because of legal weaknesses and security fears, Izvestia reports, citing the author of the document.

    The main sponsor of the bill, MP Gennady Nosovko of the center-left party Fair Russia was disappointed at its rejection. However, he has promised to rework the draft and submit it again in November. He added that he did not agree with many of the government’s conclusions regarding their review of his bill, but refused to go into detail.

    He mentioned that if the reworked piece of legislation was rejected again, he would bypass the government and send it directly to the State Duma before the end of 2015.

    “Russia needs private military companies that would protect its interests in the Arctic and in the Middle East,” he told reporters.

    He also mentioned that the use of private military companies would increase competitiveness, while also providing jobs for military and law enforcement veterans.

    Nosovko agreed that strong government control was essential for private military contractors to function successfully. However, he noted that the government had not decided which agency or ministry would be responsible for keeping them in check, if the bill was signed into law.

    Izvestia quoted an unnamed source in one of Russia’s “power agencies” who said the government had rejected the bill because a section concerning state regulation lacked detail.

    “The main question is which organization, the Defense Ministry or the Federal Security Service of the Interior Ministry, would control tens thousands of “Rambos” to make sure that they would not turn their arms against the state itself,” the source said.

    The newspaper added that according to its information, the Defense Ministry and the Federal Security Service strongly opposed the very idea of private military companies in Russia because such organizations could potentially become free of state control and could even be used against the government. However, both the Defense Ministry and the FSB have declined to comment officially on the issue.

    This is not the first time that lawmakers have tried to pass legislation, which would see the introduction of military contractors in Russia.

    In July, two lawmakers from the parliamentary majority caucus United Russia said they had prepared a bill that would grant private military companies broad rights, but also give control over them to the Defense Ministry, which would use them as an immediate response to various threats.

    While Russia does not have private military companies, private security firms are abundant. This includes independent contractors and security branches of major corporations. According to the Interior Ministry’s statistics, there are currently over 60,000 such companies in the country with about 700,000 employees.

    Those favoring the introduction of private military contractors in Russia say that if the legislation is eventually passed, it could create over 500,000 jobs.
