    yup. Many people don't even understand they need a czar. the problem is that Russia mostly is a big big countryside (village) except some major cities. And people living there, opposed to most of those who live in major cities, don't like to make decisions. They want some powerful leader that will decide for them where to go and what to do. It's kind of Russian spirit or smth like that cliche.
    And many others who'd like to make decisions by their own, remember those bloody years, when one wrong word led to death and are afraid to do smth against the governing person.

    We use it more then Russia uses Siberia.

    Except Novosibirstk.

    Uh.

    Wait.

    Belarus and the Ukraine I can kind of understand, even parts of Kazakhstan, but seriously Congressional Poland?

    Yes. Gimme Kamchatka over Siberia any day.

    Yes, but just bits of it.

    Public secret is that Belarus would love to join Russia, but Russia doesn't want it.

    Nah, that's so Yalta in '45.

    I sense a joke at 18th century partitions. If it ain't, that scenario's just impossible.

    On Belarus, that's hardly a public secret. Backa even officially requested it a few years ago.

    Right, on topic!

    Absolutely, this paradigm still stands true in many post-commie countries, and adding some heavy pro-clericalism, is the leading ideology of Poland's rural population. Hence the disastrous frequency at 2004's elections and the subsequent victory of the duck twins' "moral revolution by glorious leaders" so-called ideals heralded by the Law & Justice party.

    Which, incidentally, is collapsing. To the joy and merriment of most of the citizens, and every single one of the neighboring countries.

    I digress again. Well, about Russia's elections, everybody expected this outcome. Hell, people were surprised Putin wasn't going to serve another term, but he decided to play it cool and just be prime minister.

    Tres Smooth.

    Heh :) Democrazy. Hate Russian politics. Just like a "1984" - invented enemies, authoritative president... Terrible country, if you ask me.

    As have Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr.

    People easily forget it's just about the person that has the most impact or claims the spotlight in a particular year. Andropov has won it, the first was Lindbergh, Ayatollah Khomeini has won it, as has William C. Westmoreland.

    Putin seems a sensible pick.

    How fifties.

    Nobody would benefit from such a war, so it's pretty damn unlikely to happen.

    Putin more like Yasir Arafat, than Hitler or Ghandi.
    If Russia'll starts WW3, they (maybe I should "we", but it doesn't matter, cause I'm jewish) lose it.
    Мля, есессно! :)

    Taken from oper.ru



    The word means: "Elections".

    No, it says "Bbibopbl".

    Putin is probably one of the most bad-ass looking politicians in modern times that isn't an angry Arab; Medvedev couldn't possibly match up.

    Medvedev looks more like a relaxed, kind uncle or something.
