While Prime Minister Vladimir Putin issued a stern warning to leaders of
his party "to listen to the people," his hand-picked successor,
President Dmitry Medvedev, allowed his think tank to call for radical
changes including "a genuine multi-party system." Regardless of how the
two top leaders in Moscow settle their differences, election commissions
in the provinces still have the power to stop opposition parties to
field candidates.

LARGEST OPPOSITION RALLY IN A DECADE UNITES CRITICS OF PUTIN
Unexpected Protest Shakes the Kremlin

Russian leaders are angry that the local government in Kaliningrad did
not prevent the largest anti-government protest in a decade. In fact,
the local authorities authorized the protest at a time when it was
directed against a transportation tax. But after the local Duma dropped
the plan, rally organizers went ahead anyway and shifted their focus on
rising utility bills and unemploymentaˆ”as well as the policies of the
national government.

1. A PROTEST RALLY THAT WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE

2. OPPOSITION SEES KALININGRAD RALLY A POSSIBLE TURNING POINT

3. CONFUSION IN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT
