Free Navalny!

#1 Post by cormorant » Tue Feb 02, 2021 7:44 pm

The Russian opposition leader is now a political prisoner. The Russian people should be allowed to choose their leadership in a free and fair election. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/02/worl ... putin.html

After the military caused a coup because of made-up "voter fraud" concerns.

I wonder where they got that idea from?

Screw her. She defended the indefensible; the military's ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims.

I believe her problem was that she was a weak leader. And she is too old, her time has passed.

She couldn't stand up to the army...who were essentially still in control anyway given the way the constitution is written. I don't even know why they needed a coup.

I doubt she had a great deal of choice. The only reason she wasn't done away with years ago is because she is the daughter of the general who founded the Burmese military, and military types (even the bad sort) don't like killing their own. But they only have so much patience, and direct condemnation wouldn't have gone down well.

What she was in danger of achieving was turning the veneer of democracy, which was very useful to the military in order to facilitate trade deals and the like with the West, into a genuine force. Can't have that. People might get the idea that they should be in charge.
