Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny jailed for third time this year

"Russian court has sentenced opposition leader Alexei Navalny to his third jail term this year, disrupting plans by the long-time Kremlin critic to campaign before Russia’s coming election.

Navalny was sentenced to 20 days in prison on Monday – so he will not be able to lead a major rally he had planned to stage in Putin’s hometown of St Petersburg on Saturday, when the Russian leader will celebrate his 65th birthday.

“[My sentence] is a gift to Putin for his birthday,” Navalny quipped in a Moscow courtroom.

Navalny, the charasmatic 41-year-old anti-corruption campaigner, was detained on Friday while making plans to travel to a rally in a provincial city. He was accused by police of repeatedly violating a law on organising public meetings, which is punishable by up to 30 days in jail.

Navalny has said he would like to stand for president in the election next March but the electoral authorities have said he is not eligible because he is serving a suspended sentence for fraud…

Supporters of Jailed Kremlin Foe Navalny Protesting Across Russia

"Supporters of Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny have come out in cities across the country on October 7 for protests that could trigger harsh crackdowns by police.

Rallies and pickets have already taken place in dozens of Russian cities, including Moscow, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Ulan-Ude, Chita, and Stavropol..

There are reports that at least seven people have been detained in the city of Samara. Detentions were also reported at a rally in Izhevsk and Yakutsk. The mayor of Yekaterinburg, Yevgeny Roizman, also appeared at the rally in his city, where 10 people were reportedly detained.

In St. Petersburg, Navalny’s campaign coordinator Mikhail Sosin and the campaign's lawyer, Denis Mikhailov, were detained. His campaign coordinators in Perm, Tver, and Stavropol were also detained, as well as numerous campaign activists across the country..

Protesters at Pushkin Square are chanting "Putin is a thief!" "happy birthday!" "We are the authorities!" "Russia without Putin!" and "Free Aleksei Navalny!"

Navalny has urged Russians to join the demonstrations, being organized in more than 70 cities nationwide, to support "political competition" in the country as he seeks to run in the upcoming presidential election".

Re: Has Russia gone Rogue?

Russia has no borders!



............['Russia's borders do not end anywhere' says the billboard.

There seems no let-up in Russian abductions of Ukrainian citizens of late, however the seizure of two border guards on October 3 stands apart, both because this is a brazen abduction of state officials, and because of the fairly obvious motive.

The two men – the head of the unit in charge of a particular part of the border with Russia in the Sumy oblast and his deputy – disappeared on October 3. According to Yury Butusov, Chief Editor of Censor.net, the border at the place in question is not clearly marked in any way, and nothing to get in the way of an abduction.

It was reported then that Russia was refusing to negotiate, claiming that the men had illegally crossed the border, with this version also reported in the Russian media. In breach of international law, Moscow refused to allow the Ukrainian consul to see the men.

On October 9, a Russian court remanded the men in custody for two months on charges both of ‘illegally crossing the border’ and of ‘deliberately disobeying law enforcement officers’.

Oleh Slobodan, spokesperson for the State Border Guard Service, believes that the latter charge, coupled with the refusal to allow the Ukrainian consul access to the men, suggests that they were seized with the use of force. Russia is now trying to hold them incommunicado both to exert psychological pressure on them, and to ensure that marks from physical violence fade…

Re: Has Russia gone Rogue?

Russia’s Trojan Horse Candidate



“..Television personality and socialite Ksenia Sobchak last week declared her candidacy in next year’s presidential election. The news produced a swarm of commentary, with some analysts supporting her decision and many others, predictably, criticizing the whole project as a diversionary maneuver by the Kremlin, designed to divert attention to the strong campaign by corruption fighter Alexei Navalny. Navalny has not been allowed to register his own candidacy, but Sobchak with her often expressed “oppositional” views is meant to be a Trojan Horse who will split his base, the reasoning goes…

..I have been convinced for about 10 years that Vladimir Putin is tired and eager to get out of Russian politics. He wants to live like Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich – travel around the world in his yacht, hobnob with the rich and famous, buy a top-flight English soccer club, marry a succession of beautiful models, etc. Russian politics is a sordid environment, and quite dangerous, as well. Having allegedly amassed one of the largest financial fortunes in the world, he wants time to enjoy it – and the time to do it is becoming unpleasantly short.."

Strewth! Are you seriously suggesting that 7 posts spaced over 6 weeks should be merged?

Surely back to back posts are those posted on the same day on the same subject - if I am incorrect then I'm sure the Mods will correct me - not your job.

We are well aware of your need to make noise but if you are bored and have nothing to add to topic you might try to answer the questions put to you on the Brexit thread.

Is this the same member that accuses me of making unprovoked attacks?

But no worries Steve – I think she fancies me and is just playing coy

Putin Unveils Memorial to Victims of Soviet Repression, While His Own Repression Continues



On October 30—the day that had been unofficially marked in the Soviet Union as Political Prisoner Day and was later designated by Russia’s first post-Soviet parliament as the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repression—a new monument was unveiled in downtown Moscow. Standing on the corner of the Garden Ring and Sakharov Avenue, the memorial—called the “Wall of Grief”—commemorates those who had perished at the hands of the totalitarian system and its repressive structures over the seven decades of communist rule. The stones for the memorial had been brought from former Gulag camps across Russia; the word “Remember” is written on it in 22 different languages; the faceless heads adorning the memorial symbolize tears. “This is an uncomfortable monument,” said its sculptor, Georgy Frangulyan. “It sends shivers down the spine.”

The unveiling of Russia’s first national memorial to the victims of communist terror was long overdue. It is astonishing that, 26 years after the end of Soviet rule, there was no such memorial honoring the millions of its victims.

Yet there was something equivocal about the occasion. Perhaps it was the fact that the unveiling coincided with the release of a new report by the Memorial Human Rights Center that lists the names of 117 current political prisoners in Russia. Or perhaps it was that the memorial was built next to what once was the headquarters of Yukos, the oil company that was dismantled and pirated by Vladimir Putin’s government and whose CEO, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, an internationally recognized prisoner of conscience, spent more than a decade in prison on politically motivated charges. The last of the Yukos hostages, Alexei Pichugin—one of the 117 political prisoners—is now in his 15th year of imprisonment, a sentence that would not have been out of place in Stalin’s time.

Most of all, though, the ambivalence was captured by the image of Vladimir Putin unveiling the memorial that commemorates Russia’s victims of political repression—Putin, a senior officer of the organization that perpetrated that repression, and the head of a regime that has presided over the politically motivated prosecutions of hundreds of its citizens, as well as the assassination of the opposition leader steps away from the Kremlin. “Political repressions were a tragedy for our people,” Putin said at the unveiling ceremony. “There can be no justification for those crimes.” What about those committed on his watch?

“There is no doubt that there should be a memorial in Moscow to the victims of political repression,” a group of former Soviet political prisoners, including Alexander Podrabinek, Vladimir Bukovsky, and Mustafa Dzhemilev wrote in an open letter on Monday. “But [this should only happen] when there are no more political prisoners in the country; when the killers are punished; and when political repression itself ceases to be the subject of news stories, and becomes exclusively the subject of historical research.”
