I am sure that Russia is capable of becoming a democratic country in the near future. Russian society is ripe for saving democratic change. And whatever today Putin, Volodin, or Medvedev would tell us all from television screens, most Russians no longer believe Kremlin politicians. The main mistake of Putin and his team in politics is the reluctance to understand their own people, to hear them, to believe their own people, and to be with these people in difficult, crisis times. Unfortunately, Putin today does not understand that the Russians want to see the power in their country as democratic, not totalitarian. Unfortunately, Putin today does not understand that dictatorial rule is a dead end for Russia. There is only one way out for the country: democracy, a new democratic power in the Kremlin, a new democratic Russia, free and open. The rest will show time.
