Elections in Russia

December 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

Russia voted today. Putin´s party United Russia holds the majority again, as expected, but the majority is much smaller than before. They lost many votes. The reasons are several: Life did not improve these past years, and many people are beginning to be impatient. They have seen a lot of reforms, but not recently.  And those, who are unhappy, speak up in the Internet. The internet is Medwedjew´s merit: He enforced more internet and people are happy to use it – especially the critics.
