In der „Washington Post“ benennt Andrei Illarionov die Spielchen mit den lupenreinen Demokraten beim Namen. Unter anderem zielt er auf Rice und Merkel (Link):

Rice commended Medvedev, Russia’s first deputy prime minister, as a „very intelligent person“ and a politician „of another generation.“ For Putin and the Russian siloviki (secret police operatives) who have consolidated power and are maneuvering to ensure that the regime retains control via an undemocratic succession, Rice’s remarks could not have been better timed. Medvedev has not begun campaigning. In fact, Medvedev is not even an official candidate in the March presidential election — he has yet to give his nomination papers to the Central Electoral Commission. […]

Rice’s endorsement is all the more breathtaking considering it comes in the wake of a parliamentary election that was full of heavy-handed intimidation tactics and that European human rights observers called the dirtiest election yet in the post-Soviet period. […]

What Rice and German Chancellor Angela Merkel — who has indicated that she „could work well with“ Medvedev — are expressing is their acceptance of the underhanded political tactics of the siloviki regime. Having issued their endorsements ahead of the election, they are saying publicly that for them, Putin’s wishes count for much more than all the people’s ballots.

The March presidential election is being buried — by ex-Soviet secret police operatives and by Western leaders who have already accepted an illegitimate heir to the Russian throne.
