    Bigger then previous one, smaller then largest one.

    Police violence was widespread, because of course, it is Russia after all.
    Police violence is pretty much normalized in Western societies at this point (at least as far as mass protests go).

    Why does everybody keep refering to him as the opposition leader anyway, he is not even in the russian parliament, and its not like Russia has no opposition parties.

    This has confused me for months now.

    They really can't help but show disdain for the working class.

    They never registered his party, so he is not technically any kind of "oppositional party leader".

    And he always was fairly antagonistic against other parties, so it's not like he is going to take over any existing one.

    But he could still be said to be one of the "leaders of opposition".

    Second point are lies, Shalcker. Tell me, when was the last time police did something like that in Europe, or how often that happens duri? Gonna mention Yellow Vests? That would be a fail strategy, since police did nothing until after protesters started breaking things and rioting. In Moscow you had arrests before protests even started.
    We had unauthorised protest yesterday in Riga as well, police just stood and watched instead, like they normally do. Maximum you can get is administrative fine. Just go and throw Russia's constitution out in the trash bin. Oh, wait, that was done last year, if my memory serves me right.
    P.S.
    It is also the usual whataboutism, Shalcker.

    Opposition in Russian parliament - LDPR and the infamous Zhirinovsky, for example? Very debatable as to how much "in opposition" they are. Navalny has zero change under current goverment to be allowed to stand as candidate.

    That's because you are suffering from lack of oxygen to your brain because Putin's cock is blocking your airways.

    The police killed 1 protester at Capitol Hill.

    You are being your usual stupid, yet abusive, idiot. There's one confirmed police kill (yes, Verdugo, by the Capitol police), a shot in a woman's throat. In addition, there were several deaths due to what the police claims to be "medical reasons" (without explaining further). It is possible some of those people died because of police violence. So you can see my post was literally correct: unlike you, who present as a fact whatever delusion happens to occur in your tiny mind, I clearly indicate whenever I'm speculating and when I'm posting facts.

    with the palace scandal and all the atrocities over the years, putin cements himself as the second most evil person on the planet behind xi jinping. I never took the guy for being such a hedonist with how people hype him up as a no-nonsense intelligence agent.

    Navalny really doesn't care about his life though. The way he has gone to war with Putin is just cementing a Khashoggi death. And considering how Khashoggi's martyr status didn't cause the US to go to war with SA due to pragmatic villainy, history will repeat.

    And considering Putin's support for Belarus, I don't think he's the kind of man who would hesitate to gun down waves of his own citizens if they stir into a frenzy over Navalny's death.

    You are such a dumb motherfucker. Every single death has been explained, you just refuse the explanation because you owe some fucked up ideological allegiance to Russian government.

    * a police officer died because rioters hit him in the head with fire extinguisher
    * a woman died because police shot her when she was trying to enter through a broken window in a door
    * a woman died because other rioters trampled on her
    * a man died because he had a heart condition
    * a man died because he had a stroke

    These are all well reported cases, but since you are an useful idiot that laps up everything that Kremlin pushes out, you deny all those reports and fall back on "Hey it could have been caused by police!"

    Fuck you.

    Here protesters also broken things (like cars), as well as thrown stuff at police and pepper sprayed them.

    Out of supposed 110k country-wide only ~2.8k total were arrested by police metrics.

    Still quite tame compared to Yellow Vests.

    In Moscow you had arrests before protests even started.
    Got to see examples.

    And "EU" did that for Yellow vests too.
    “We’ve got to shock public opinion,” Mr. Drouet said in a video on Facebook before going to the Place de le Concorde on Wednesday and placing candles for the movement’s wounded. He called for “action” on the Champs-Élysées, where several dozen Yellow Vests were waiting for him that evening outside a McDonald’s restaurant.

    Instead, shortly after 9 p.m., Mr. Drouet was hustled into a police van by riot police officers.

    French law requires the organizers of street demonstrations to inform the local authorities about their plans. Violations can bring six months in jail and a fine of 7,500 euros, about $8,500.


    Not so different.

    We had unauthorised protest yesterday in Riga as well, police just stood and watched instead, like they normally do. Maximum you can get is administrative fine. Just go and throw Russia's constitution out in the trash bin. Oh, wait, that was done last year, if my memory serves me right.
    What does that prove exactly?

    Just because you don't see it out of your window means it doesn't ever happen in entire Europe?

    What is particularly evil about having any kind of palace though?

    It isn't even a blip on average Russian budget.

    It is only "shock content" because Putin had image of "modest means" guy.

    And considering Putin's support for Belarus, I don't think he's the kind of man who would hesitate to gun down waves of his own citizens if they stir into a frenzy over Navalny's death.
    Protests got to rise quite a few notches for that to happen.

    1. It’s not really high on the evil list for a known dictator that tortures and murders with impunity, but it’s still evil to swindle your people. It also illustrates Putin as a sleazy bastard instead of this Gustavo Fring chess master people always saw him as.

    2. The fact you admit that he’s willing to do it if it reaches a certain point shows what a soulless colossal villain this guy is. On top of interfering with foreign democracies and killing US troops recently, it always raises the question of how we approach a nuclear state for war. Because killing our own people should be enough but somehow it wasn’t.

    I’m wondering if the FBI and CIA knows Trump is complicit in Putin foreign terrorism and that’s what they say to know but don’t want to openly admit because of nukes. I’m not trying to sound like a broken record with that, but it always comes to the nukes.

    Like come on, hacking our country and murdering US troops on top of all the heinous shit in their own politics like weekly assassinations. We should just close Russia off from the rest of the free world as far back as Obama was in charge (he knew everything they did) but they just wave the nuclear flag and it’s fair game? It’s not in my opinion.

    That’s why I hope when Navalny is eventually flayed alive, the people do what they did to Gadaffi to Putin so we can end the terror the current administration of Russia has rained upon the world for so long

    Well, Trump has lots of wonderful things to say about those men you deemed to be the two most evil on the planet.

    What does that say about Trump?

    What does that say about you?

    He isn't likely to keep it once he is out of power, so the only practical relevance it has is as "what Kremlin procurement guys think is high class" high-level advertisement for elite.
