Estou até agora tentando imaginar o que Vladimir Putin quer dizer com “eleições sujas”… De toda maneira, alguém tem dúvida de que o Czar do século XXI pretende permanecer no poder? E que deve vencer as próximas eleições? E isso é bom para a Rússia, acredito sinceramente. Ademais, não haveria oposição que conseguisse fazer frente a Putin-Medvedev… Gosto de Putin. Ele “foi” do KGB…
(Em tempo: Putin falava desde Ecaterimburgo, cidade onde o Czar Nicolau II e sua bela família passaram os últimos dias de vida e foram massacrados pelas malditas forças bolcheviques, no início das sete décadas de trevas que se abateram sobre a Rússia… Regicídio é crime dos mais abjetos, comparável ao parricídio… D’us abençoe o Czar e sua família!)
Putin says Russian 2012 election will be dirty
YEKATERINBURG, Russia (Reuters) – Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin warned on Thursday that the March 2012 presidential election campaign would be dirty, but stopped short of saying whether he would seek another stint as Kremlin chief.
Putin, Russia’s most popular politician, made clear he would play a significant role in the election but told supporters he would need to cleanse politics after the campaign.
“I shall go to wash, in the hygienic sense of the word but also in the political sense,” Putin said, when asked at a regional conference of his ruling United Russia party what he would do the day after the March presidential election.
“After all the campaigns which we shall have to endure, you have to be properly hygienic. Unfortunately, this is an inevitable process,” he said.
“As Churchill said: Democracy is the worst form of government but there is no better one,” Putin said in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg.
Putin and his protege, President Dmitry Medvedev, have both repeatedly refused to say which of them will run in the March 2012 presidential election, which follows a parliamentary election in December.
