Russia: Protest Against Voter Fraud

LJ user avmalgin posts footage from and writes this (RUS) about the rally against voter fraud in Moscow, following the governing party's victory in local election: “On Pushkin Sq., it turns out, someone was going to protest against something. Naive people. It's like coming out of the theater and holding a protest rally against Othello's evil deeds.” LJ user unruler interprets avmalgin‘s “laconic” post: “[…] It's absurd to protest against the election farce (the regime does know perfectly well that everyone KNOWS), but it's better to stay calm and look for rational ways of getting out of this theater of political absurd.”
