Russian Rip Off: Elections
By Edward Limonov Browse author

Today is election day in Russia. Russia is my beloved country, where I was born sixty years ago in the city of Dzerzhinsk, named after Polish aristocrat, turned to be a chief of Revolutionary terror machine of AllRussian Extraordinary Comission. My destiny was always predicted on that terribly cold February Day to be born in the city of Dzerzhinsk, in another words I was damned somehow on my birthday, condemned to be tied up to the destiny of organization, founded by Mr. Dzerzhinski. So, I was duly detained by KGB officers in 1973 and consequently was forced to go abroad in 1974. I was arrested by FSB officers in 2001 and was placed in FSB prison "Lefortovo." Then I spend two and a half years in various prisons of my country. Beloved country, of course. And my President in present time is a colonel of KGB. I want to say that he was a colonel of KGB and later he was a head of the same organisation that Dzerzhinski have founded. These are my thoughts in cold election Day in Moscow apartment. I am looking from my window.

I feel absolutely disgusted with all men who my dear Russian compatriots intended to elect in Parlament of my country. As I said, my president is KGB officer, but as it is not enough, my country's Minister of Interior Boris Grizlov is also a head of biggest political party -- "United Russia." I don't see a single honest man amongst huge crowd of candidates to the places of Deputies in State Duma. Except our candidates -- Sergei Fomchenkov, Victor Alksnis and Vladislav Shurigin. And all that process called "election" is very well ogranized crime operation, intended to cheat my compatriots. Yes, it is vile Bizantine crime operation. No matter what will say one thousand of international observers. They are those observers, they are not Russians. I am Russian myself. I knew my dearest native manner of cheating, Russian Rip Off, I know well. Russian elections are fraud before they took place. They were fraud, they were act of wilful dishonesty to gain advantage many months ago. Because menu of elections carefully purged of all undesirable political parties and undesirable personalities. Undesirable for our President and his consorts. International observers should come to Russia many years ago and follow as that web, sinistre web of crime was woven.

Today is too late. Russian political liberty was kidnapped long time ago. Now all Russian political parties but mighty clans, cliques, gangs who are exploiting some parts of Russia and they don't want to lose it. We Russians are so much East Europeans that we are Asians. Good, old, violent Asians -- that who we are. So our police force as anarshist and violent as no european anarshist could be. We are probably worst, our police force probably more violent than, say, some pakistani police force. Our prisons, and I know what I am saying, are as cruel and violent as Turkish prisons are not. So we corrupted european born election processors to the point of non-return, our elections are Olimpic games of fraud, rip off and cheating.

When I see Mister Grizlov, minister of Interior making electoral speeches I laugh violently. What the man is thinking of himself? Is he truly believing that everything all right with him, how it should be, that he is political leader? Jesus, I think those Russian men are uncomparable! Even Latin-American dictatorships of 50s and 60s never were such impudent creatures. Russian political class could be comparable to the worst inhabitants of African political scene.

Writing all that, I am from time to time checking the radio and television news: how it is with participation of election. I hope that my compatriots will boycott that action of organized crime. I hope they will abstain in masses. I wish that 75 percent of registered voters will abstain, protesting against insolent fraud. OK, 50 percent looks more real.

From 1998 Ministry of Justice of Russia is refusing to register National-Bolsheviks Party as "All Russian political party." One can say: "Fuck them, those bureaucrats of ministry of Justice!" But their registration gives a right to participate in Elections. That is how they act -- just refusing to register and Party can go to court, yes, but a court will confirm their position.
