Putin is the problem

The more civil society criticises Vladimir Putin, the sooner truly free and fair elections will be held, writes the former Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov in the liberal daily Eesti Päevaleht: "The first months after Putin's return to power will be greatly influenced by how the people and the leaders of the protest movement react. The Russians must name concrete political goals, and strive to achieve them. They must call for serious, drastic changes, instead of cosmetic alterations to the country's political system. The most important goal at the moment is to bring about free and fair elections which can one day lead to a legitimate and responsible government. The list of the most pressing problems facing Russia at the moment is very long, and their solution can no longer be put off. But as long as Putin is in power, the list will only grow longer."
