Russia will have parliamentary elections for their state Duma basically soon on the 19th. United Russia(Putins party) has a popularity of 20-25% which is not acceptable to the Authoritarian regime in the country.

95% of all non-systemic candidates are banned, sitting in jail or has run away from the country. Almost 95% of all media that is not state controlled has been labelled as "foreign agents" and had to either close or have problems functioning due to inability to sell advertisements and so on anymore. Navalny is in jail as most people are aware.

Any platforms or meetings for the opposition has been systematically cancelled and supressed fully. Navalnies "party" online platform to consolidate the opposition vote has been outright banned and is being actively blocked by both the most used search engine "Yandex" in the country and may be soon also google.

Both of Navalny "party" organisations have been blacklisted as terrorist/extremist organisations. (Fund for anti-corruption and some other one which i don't remember the name for)

Putin cronies have provided large funding to create fake candidates with same names for a lot of regions to dilute the votes everywhere. Majority of the systemic parties like the communists and the LDPR and even Yabloko have kissed the royal boot and promised to stay in line banning their own candidates that might be considered "not faithful".

So how much do you think that a party with 20-25% support will get in this election? 50%? 66%? Remember this parliament will be responsible for tricks to give Putin more terms when he eventually runs out of them after his already long rule. I would say that they are aiming to get the absolute majority with their 20-25% support.

This is a graph from a pro-Putin sources :excited: :

"tons of natural resources," is the main problem ,



the second problem is that Muscovy is an outdated empire (ulus)

@JohnRawls ;

He's a filthy Anti-Russian fascist pig, but he's Anti-Russian, and that suits plenty of people in the West. Had he been Anti-Hispanic, or Anti-Sub Saharan African, he'd be banned from just about everywhere pretty quickly I'm thinking.

If you say so.

Most people are natural slaves.

And, objectively, Stalin played a positive role for Russia. If Trotsky had been in charge, no more Russia - The deal he made with Hitler was to surrender and be the puppet ruler of a rump state in the Stans.

And it is - one of the top 2 or 3 depending on how its military compares to China's. And this is never going to change as the nearest competitor for 3rd spot (India) is still struggling with sanitation.

Neoliberalism almost destroyed Russia. Don't let the door hit you on your way out, liberals.

The transition from communism to capitalism was not smooth in Russia that is for sure but the whole Putins early growth is the late Yeltsin reforms and high oil prices. But then by 2003-2004 all those reformers were fired and after 2008 there was no solid growth anymore.

So I am not sure what are you talking about. In propaganda terms you are correct. Also it is kinda hard to imagine the same thing repeating because basis of the economy like private property, enterprise and so on already exist.

"Rape during the Soviet occupation of Poland
Image
A 52-year-old victim of gang rape from Pińczów testified that two Soviet war veterans returning from Berlin told her that they fought for Poland for three years and thus had the right to have all Polish females. In Olkusz twelve rapes were recorded in two days. In Ostrów county, 33 rapes were recorded. The local Militia report stated that on June 25 near Kraków a husband and child were shot dead before a woman was raped in one village, while in another, a 4-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by two Soviet males.[3] According to statistics of the Polish Ministry of Health, there was a pandemic of sexually transmitted diseases across the country, affecting around 10% of the general population. In Masuria up to 50% of women were infected.[3]
Image
According to historian Wiesław Niesiobędzki, in East Prussia (Prusy Wschodnie) many ethnic German women, alarmed by the Nazis, fled ahead of the Soviet offensive, leaving the Polish women to endure rapes and witness the systematic burning of ransacked houses, for example in the town of Iława in late January 1945 under the Soviet Major Konstantinov. Eye witness Gertruda Buczkowska spoke of a labor camp near Wielka Żuława employing two hundred ethnic Belarusian women. In late January 1945 Buczkowska saw their bodies in the snow while fleeing with her mother and five German women of Hamburg who had joined them. The five Germans were found naked and dead in a basement of a house on Rybaków street in Iława a few days later.[11] "

Why do you tell only half the story?

Compared to the crimes, robberies, and excesses committed by the army [Wehrmacht], the SS and the police don't look all that bad.
