poutine

Бензин кончился

After three months of mass demonstrations, Russia's protest movement seems to be running out of steam. This rally was far smaller than previous protests. Police didn't even need to stop the traffic on Novy Arbat street and block off the road.

The lower turnout shows how hard it will be for the opposition to maintain its momentum following Vladimir Putin's election win. Especially with Mr Putin's victory receiving recognition from world leaders - President Obama called to congratulate him on Friday.

"Дальше предстоит кропотливая работа", блядь.
