For such dictatorships as the Putin regime, collapse of the foreign aggressive policy becomes the trigger for the explosion of protest in the country. He writes about this in his account on Facebook politician Garry Kasparov, a citizen of Croatia.

"Rejection of the imperial concept - a fundamental problem for Russia. We have to do something that was not done 25 years ago and to formulate what must be from a country called Russia. The country should get vaccinated against the imperial virus and get rid of phantom pain" lost greatness. "It is on these imperial illusions plays the Putin regime, providing the support of a considerable part of Russian society, despite the growing social and economic tension. People should finally realize that all these things are connected," - wrote Kasparov.

"It is obvious that after the collapse of Putin's regime, Russia needs a period of" cleansing "in which people have to understand that for everything - for Putin's support for Georgia, for the Crimea and Donbas - will have to pay. Germany and Japan have paid a terrible price for unleashing World War II and 70 years received the vaccine works. Our task - not to allow Russia had to pay as high a price, but people need to understand that there is a price they have to pay. They will have to listen to unpleasant things that happened , that they are, in fact, supported the crimes of the regime. They will be compelled to acknowledge that their country is plundered by consent, and the recovery process will take a long time comparable to the duration of the robbery ", - the politician believes.

According to Garry Kasparov, right after the collapse of Putin's regime to hold elections meaningless. "For immediately after Putin's coming, those who try to" comfort "the people, shifting the responsibility on the dictator and his entourage - say there were some excesses and minor deviations from the rule of law. And it does not excesses. Putin's regime - is the heir of the totalitarian regime, which destroyed flower of the nation. "

"We need to not only its historical" Nuremberg ", which will be given a legal assessment of the crimes of the Communist dictatorship, but the real criminal trials of architects and collaborators of the regime. In fact, need a total de-Sovietization, especially dekagebizatsiya society, because the ideological heritage CPSU we somehow coped, "- says Kasparov. In Russian

Russia, Ukraine accuse each other of playing 'Jewish card' in conflict.

The use of anti-Semitism in propaganda has been a significant leitmotif in the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Kremlin-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, and recent reports out of Crimea seem to indicate that this trend is in no danger of petering out.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post on Thursday, representatives of the Crimean Jewish community said that they were unaware of media reports that a local man had been convicted of spreading Judeophobic propaganda last week, only days after Ukraine’s president accused Russia of fomenting anti-Semitism in the occupied territory.

Speaking before the Knesset during a state visit here last week, President Petro Poroshenko said Jews living in the Ukrainian territory, which Russia occupied and annexed early in 2014, may find themselves in danger “as the conquerors have started to cultivate the anti-Semitism issue as well.”....................

Russia - economic sanctions and falling oil prices. And she was almost in complete international isolation. Now it is not only Europe and NATO, but also the Arab League and Turkey, writes Andrei Zubov for "apostrophe".
Ukraine is located in the very different circumstances. It is supported by the international community: the European Union, the United States and at the same time Turkey. In this sense, Ukraine's prospects look much better. Its future destiny, rather, depends on the ability of citizens to organize themselves, not only in defense but also in the issue of control of state power and government. For Russia, however, require a change of foreign policy as a minimum. This is likely to happen with the change of the political regime in the country.
If this does not happen, the RF virtually guaranteed a sharp economic downturn. He's in a memory of a relatively prosperous life that we had a couple of years ago, will lead to a strong social protests....
