On Twitter, Edward Snowden says: The ballot stuffing seen today in Moscow and elsewhere in the Russian election is an effort to steal the influence of 140+ million people. Demand justice; demand laws and courts that matter. Take your future back.
What kind of election is it when you don’t let the main opponent Navalny compete?
I appreciate the courage of Snowden.

The percentages are similar to the levels a person uses the brain. So, how can anyone presume to be the ideal one to lead a country without allowing… Read more »

Why did Putin have to take Russia to the Syria quagmire? I don’t have military training and I have average understanding of chess and not even an inkling of what judo is, but I think it was a very foolish decision that will cost Russia much more than the venture in to Afghanistan. So what if USA dominated the world like Britain did a century back — if it cannot be prevented, it has to be lived with — the cycle of empires is an ever going phenomenon. Like in Asterix comic book, USA or for that matter any country,… Read more »
