Roman Gruzov's piece (RUS) that conveys the atmosphere in pre-election Russia beautifully, but hasn't made it into the last issue of Bolshoi Gorod. Published on the blog of Bolshoi Gorod's editor instead.

UPDATE: Lyndon Allin's English translation of the piece is here.


  1. This is very sad on one hand, but also scary on the other. I'm afraid in couple of years, Ukraine will be bordering on a Reich.

  2. Well, the coalition has just elected Arseniy Yatseniuk, 33, the Rada speaker! He got 227 votes. Yuriy Lutsenko also said Ivan Pliusch was wih Ahmetov and Yanukovych in Donetsk at the football game.
