Furono arresti politici: la Russia condannata a risarcire Navalny. Due arresti "illegittimi", per "soffocare il pluralismo politico", e altri cinque "non necessari in una società democratica", tra il 2012 e il 2014.

Furono arresti politici: la Russia condannata a risarcire Navalny

La Corte europea dei diritti dell'uomo ha condannato la Russia a risarcire Aleksei Navalny con 50.000 euro per danni morali, 1025 per danni matreriali, e 12.653 euro per le spese sostenute. Una sentenza non appellabile. "La Corte europea ha riconosciuto che si è trattato di arresti e persecuzioni a fini politici. È una decisione importante non solo per me, ma per tutte le persone che vengono arrestate in Russia ogni giorno", ha dichiarato il grande oppositore di Vladimir Putin, presente a Strasburgo al momento della lettura del verdetto.

La sua partenza per la Francia era stata bloccata dalle autorità russe. In prima istanza la Corte aveva già condannato la Russia per violazione dei diritti di riunione e associazione, ma non aveva riconosciuto le motivazioni politiche.

Number of Protests in Russia Spikes in 2018, Researchers Say

In 2017, researchers from CEPR marked an uptick in protests compared to 2016, including Alexei Navalny’s anti-corruption rallies, Moscow residents’ pickets against a City Hall plan to demolish thousands of apartment blocks and truck drivers’ protests against a controversial road tax. Meanwhile, polls by the independent Levada Center this year recorded a growing willingness among Russians to take to the streets in defense of their interests as the Kremlin pushed through a controversial plan to increase the retirement eligibility age for men and women by 5 years. With less than two months to go before the end of 2018, CEPR researchers said they have already recorded over 2,500 protests this year compared to under 1,500 nationwide last year, according to the report published Thursday.

Vladimir Putin’s plan to divide Europe is backfiring. The former Russian prime minister Viktor Chernomyrdin once famously quipped: “We wanted the best, but it turned out as always.”

Vladimir Putin’s plan to divide Europe is backfiring

When Dutch, British and US officials last week issued coordinated denunciations of Russia’s cyber-operations – whose targets ranged from sports anti-doping bodies to the international chemical weapon watchdog – it felt like Chernomyrdin’s saying had been given new meaning. For all the efforts the Kremlin put into staging the World Cup earlier this year as a demonstration of Russia’s openness, news seems to keep pouring in about the blunders of its not-so-secret services.

In the latest instalment yesterday, Bellingcat, an investigative website, published the name of the second Russian agent involved in the Skripal poisoning. Official Russian reactions have ranged from denouncing a “stage-managed propaganda campaign” to sneering at “western hysteria about all-mighty Russian cyber-spies”. Defense chief vows response to Israel’s actions that caused fatal crash of Il-20 aircraft. MOSCOW, September 18.

Defense chief vows response to Israel’s actions that caused fatal crash of Il-20 aircraft

/TASS/. Russia will respond to actions on behalf of the Israeli Air Force that led to a fatal crash of Russia’s Il-20 aircraft on Monday late night in Syria, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday. "We have informed today our Israeli colleagues, and I have also informed personally the Israeli Defense Minister [Avigdor Lieberman], that such actions will not be left unanswered by us," Shoigu said.

The Russian Il-20 that was shot down by Syrian air defense systems had been conducting reconnaissance activity in the Idlib de-escalation zone before the crash, he said. Israeli F-16 jets delivered strikes on Syria using the Russian Ilyushin-20 reconnaissance plane as cover, since the Israelis believed that Syria's air defenses would not counteract against that trajectory, Shoigu said. When is a dance not a dance? When it’s a geopolitical move by Putin. When Vladimir Putin took to the dancefloor to waltz with Austria’s foreign minister, Karin Kneissl, at her wedding last weekend, perhaps he wanted to send a signal that it was Europe he wanted to dance with.

But which Europe? Surely not the Europe of the Enlightenment, embodied today by liberal democrats struggling to counter the populist wave. Rather a darker, more sinister side of Europe’s history and current politics. En Russie, une réforme des retraites fait chuter la popularité de Vladimir Poutine. En plein Mondial, des milliers de Russes se sont rassemblés dimanche pour protester contre l’allongement de l’âge du départ à la retraite tandis qu’une pétition a déjà réuni plus de 2,5 millions de signatures.

En Russie, une réforme des retraites fait chuter la popularité de Vladimir Poutine

La liesse des supporteurs de foot avait quelque peu éclipsé la colère sourde qui s’est emparée d’une bonne partie des Russes depuis l’annonce le 14 juin, jour du coup d’envoi de la Coupe du monde 2018 en Russie, de l’allongement de l’âge de départ en retraite. Cette colère a ressurgi dimanche 1er juillet, en plein Mondial, lorsque des milliers de protestataires sont descendus dans la rue dans une vingtaine de villes. Parfois autorisées, parfois non, ces manifestations ont épargné les villes-hôtes du tournoi sportif où tout rassemblement est strictement prohibé durant la compétition. A Moscou, cependant, un archéologue de 28 ans a eu le temps de s’afficher tout nu sur la place Rouge, sans être interpellé, avec juste cette pancarte : « Dépouillé jusqu’au slip ».

Addirittura il Burj Khalifa di Dubai, il grattacielo più alto del mondo, è stato illuminato dai colori della bandiera russa per celebrare il trionfo di Golovin e compagni. Mentre il Paese si abbandonava a comprensibili manifestazioni d’orgoglio nazional-calcistico, il premier Dmitri Medvedev annunciava l’impopolare aumento dell’età pensionabile, contrariamente alle promesse di Putin (“Fin quando sarò io presidente non ci sarà mai un aumento dei termini dell’età pensionabile”) e quello ancor più osteggiato dell’Iva, la cui aliquota passerà dal 18 al 20 per cento, giustificato dal calo dell’export petrolifero verso l’Europa (-16%).

History has proven that all dictatorships, all authoritarian forms of government, are transient. — Vladimir Putin (1999) Over two decades ago, in the post-Soviet chaos of the mid-1990s, the deputy mayor of St. Petersburg gave a cautionary TV interview. “It sometimes seems to us,” he said, speaking of his fellow Russians, “that if we had a firm hand to bring about order, then we would all live better, more comfortably, and in safety.”

He paused, seeming to consider his next words before continuing. Within three years, that careful, calculating man would become the Russian President — and after almost two decades in power, his relentless grip on Russia has never felt more strangling. Vladimir Putin’s fourth presidential inauguration was staged last week in a grand, gilded Kremlin hall that had once crowned three tsars: Alexander II, Alexander III, and Nicholas II.

" Kremlin correspondent Andrei Kolesnikov asked the president at the end of his first press conference after the elections.

"Everything flows, everything changes," Putin retorted tersely before walking off stage. Searching for Memory of the Gulags in Putin’s Russia. Here are some of the things that you will not find if you go looking for traces of the Soviet Gulags: memorials at every known execution site, museums on the ruins of camps, accurate documentation of what happened to the still uncounted numbers of people who disappeared, a widely accepted story of the terror. Most of all, what’s missing is a reckoning, an attempt to comprehend the incomprehensible. How do you locate what’s not there? Putin, a Little Man Still Trying to Prove His Bigness. I bumped into Vladimir Putin in Chile, in 2004, when we were both in Santiago for the annual conference of leaders from twenty-one nations on both sides of the Pacific. Putin was strutting across the hotel lobby in that distinctly quick duck-footed waddle that twists his upper torso and makes him look like a mechanical toy.

His gaggle of security guards elbowed me aside to let him pass. What struck me—a small female—was how small he was, too. In a brief exchange of glances, we were at eye level. “He walks like someone who thinks, How do I walk like a cool guy?” Dopo elezioni - Mosca, chiese ortodosse e periferie le roccaforti di Putin: voto in massa per lo Zar.
