Rich Russians unhappy with their government

Found this in one of my German newspapers today. Didn't find an English version so I translated it for you:
  • Support for Putin is declining according to a survey by the center for strategic studies(?) in Moscow
  • Outside Moscow 34% of people are dissatisfied with government work
  • In Moscow it's 46%
  • Rich people are less loyal than the poor ones
  • There's an elite group of 500,000 people including top managers and high-level officials. "They are the best qualified and best informed people in Moscow. They are unhappy with the restrictions to their economic freedom and with the business climate in Russia." says Sergej Belanowskij, co-author of the survey.
  • An owner of a design office complains: "This state is a robber band. It doesn't make sense to expand my business since all agencys have to share their earnings with corrupt officials." Elitist magazine "Snob" (:D) comments: "The worst thing about Putin is, that he is a brazen-faced liar".

Re: Rich Russians unhappy with their government

Two critics of Vladimir Putin take bullets in the head:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...011902604.html



In that same magazine, there was an interview with one of the leading if not the leading 'guru' on internet marketing in Russia. He is not happy about .рф, at all, but i guess he will learn to live with it.

Of course he isn't.

For every .рф registered by a end-user or domain investor [sucker or squatter, to use his more colorful lingo - stemming from years of Internet marketing experience], it chips away from his future income.

Putin should shoot him, as well.

Re: Rich Russians unhappy with their government

Of course they're unhappy with their government. Why should they be any different than any other people?

The only people not displeased with their government are people too uninformed to know what their government is doing. Nothing wrong with that, it's just the way governments work.
