is the election day in Russia. The Party will win. I have discovered
that the best time to travel to Russia is right before the election. The
party will do anything (using government money?) to get your voice. Here
is what people were getting from The Party - warm blankets, canned
fish, cakes, chocolate, olive oil, trips to historical and holy places,
tickets to the circus... Look at this street poster from the opposition.
Zhirinovsky ("Zhirik") says: "Everything was taken from you except for
your right to vote!"
