And they talked about how what's happening to the Palestinians is just like what's happening to black and brown people the hands of cops all across America. And that if you're black in America, it's your fighting for White America. Your fight, And if you're this infer that the other it's it's your fight. Is in the in this world, a Biden administration world are the values of America still to see Israel as an ally worth defending. Of course, we need to double down on our defense of Israel are alignment with Israel. Our encouragement of the democratic values that are are perpetuated. On and promulgated by Israel by the innovative economic culture they've cultivated, which would benefit others across the Middle East. We don't just need Israel to continue to exist. Imagine if we had So to speak. Several is rails, several vibrant democracies. Capitalist economies pour a list IQ countries where Arabs in Jews and Muslims and have coexisted peacefully side by side. If you had that across the Middle East, then that region would be far West, dangerous, far more stable and in and frankly less of it. Geo Political and national security Challenge the United States. So, um, you know the fact that the rally you referenced by some of our Congress people. Uh, you know the fact that that occurred during National police week and there was there are equating and oppression of one people by another two. Our own police forces That does trouble me enormously. I want to take this opportunity. Tony, if you'll indulge me to seek our brave men and women in uniform for their service. Those who have served, for example, and in the Indianapolis market where I know you. Live and you have many listeners, You know are who's your officers work every day to keep our our community safe throughout Indiana officers do across the country. Of course, they're a couple of bad apples and no one dislikes. Bad cop more than a good cop. And the good cops out Nam outnumber the bad cops. 10,000 won So look, we have to focus on what we can do to protect public safety and support our law enforcement and in foster trust in our communities, and to the extent we undermine that to demagogic rhetoric and unfair, cheap shots. Um, you know that Z. I think that's really unfortunate. Well, I still have a couple minutes left talking to Senator Todd Young of Indiana. You also sit on the U. S. Senate Community Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. And One of the things that you are involved in is the regulation. Of interstate common carriers, including pipelines. We've seen what's happened with the colonial pipeline. The attack of that came out of Russia, if not from the Russians, which I say is a distinction without a difference. And now it coming back online. President Biden speaking earlier today about this how concerning is this ransomware attack by this Russian outfit? And exactly what needs to be done to limit this to the best of our ability. So I mean, this was incredibly serious. Uh, we need to let Vladimir Putin know that you're probably right there. It's probably a distinction without a difference, but to the extent There was any nexus between his leadership of of Russia on one hand in the enablement off Russian actors within his country to shut down critical asset in this country. There will be very significant consequences, and I think we keep him guessing Tony as to the time in place in in manner in which we will respond. There are many different ways. They're kinetic ways. Their information warfare mechanism, psychological warfare there, their cyber attacks of our own that we could bring to bear against the Russians to say nothing of the economic measures. We we've already taken against him in recent years, But look, we're gonna have to get better at this. We're gonna have to get better at hardening our own critical assets so that Our power grids are water treatment plants are fresh water supplies. Our airports are our air traffic control systems and on and on and on aren't disrupted by foreign actors like Russia, Iran, North Korea in communist China, and we start some work to do part of this. The answer comes down to research and development into cutting edge. Cyber hardening technologies. Some of those research activities will occur in our our major universities on others through our national laboratories. I just ushered through the Senate Commerce Committee piece of legislation had been working on for about 18 months. The endless Frontier Act. It would work with her trusted allies to pool our resources to come up with these resiliency technologies and so that we can avoid these sorts of attacks in the future.

Putin Tells Red Square Parade That Nazi Ideas Persist
"Russia today marks the 76th anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany and World War two from Moscow. Charles Maynes reports Rise Nicholas Young, legal buy beer, They're speaking before some 12,000 troops taking part in the military parade on Red Square.

"Just certain people want to blame Democrats for the high rise of gas prices, someone and so forth Back in 2000 and 15. Obama's last year in office, the average price of guest was $2.43 a gallon. I just want to remind people that in 2018, the average price of gas was $2.72. In 19 $2002.60 just wanted Tonto share those numbers with you. And by the way tomorrow, Oh, and by the way tomorrow tomorrow on the show tomorrow on the show. I just wanted to remind people or tell people anyway, that we're gonna have one of the head of Goldman Sachs security gonna be joining us on the program. And she's gonna be giving us her. I guess you could say opinions on. How are we? How do we keep getting hacked? Head of the pipeline? Get hacked how we getting hacked in our elections. So, uh, glad that she's gonna be joining us tomorrow and We're going to be, uh, Antoinette, by the way that a second her name, So she's gonna She's gonna be joining us on the show tomorrow is biting. Not now a Russian puppet. Now that he's not holding Putin responsible, just like Trump was a Russian puppet. When name when he didn't hold Putin responsible. The answer that, Yeah, First of all, I wouldn't call anybody. A Russian puppet who calls Vladimir Putin a murderer. That's number one on number two. I just gave you the breaking news 10 minutes ago. I don't know if you heard what I said. Joe Biden himself says that their own intelligence says that the government is not responsible now, if there's evidence That the government is responsible then? Yes, I think that is a fair criticism, for example. We had our own intelligence and intelligence throughout the world. Quite frankly. That said that Russia was responsible for the hacking of our elections. You had a president back then who took the side of Vladimir Putin? So, for example, If our own intelligence, CIA and FBI said clearly that Vladimir Putin and the Russian government was responsible for this hacking and then Joe Biden said he didn't believe it. I would agree with you. That is my answer. The whole Russian. You're you're creating a false equivalency Here hold the whole Russian collusion Narrative was that not only was Donald Trump completely aware of whatever took place during the presidential election. But he was aware of it because He He was he was in touch with not only Putin. But that and part of his part of this administration was in touch with the Food Administration because Donald Trump was in debt in some capacity to Putin. I understand, and Donald Trump is the one who told him to do that. And Russia. Russia wanted Doug Preston's phone number. I want to move on. But the these two situations Are completely different. No, they're not. But I'd like to move on even close to this. I'd like to move on. But no, they're not. Actually if I could please respond because no one is accusing Joe Biden off man visiting with with Russia to hack Okay to hack the colonial pipeline to increase the opportunity price of gas. So for whatever reason, Okay, so maybe happen. We're done. Okay, responded, you're creating. You're trying to computer quite not trying to quit and they're not even close to the same people out there that might understand what I'm saying. I'll repeat it. Again. Obviously, J D does not When you take the side of an evil, murderous dictator and Vladimir Putin when our own CIA and FBI says that Russia interfered in our election when you get up there in this world stage next time and you take his side, That is the definition of a Russian puppet. If you could show me direct evidence that Russia interfered or Vladimir Putin and the Russian government interfered in this hack And then if Joe Biden gets there on a national stage and takes Vladimir Putin side, I will absolutely call him a Russian puff it If you don't understand that, I really don't know what else to say. Those air on the most basic layman terms that I can lay it out for you all right, So I want to move on on topics now, and I want to talk a little bit about this horrendous situation that's been taking place in the Middle East at least 67 people killed in gas at seven people in Israel. Since this violence has started an even worse, including some women and Children on both sides, it's a tragedy. It's terrible. The current eruption of violence began a month ago in Jerusalem, where heavy handed Israeli police tactics during threatened and evictions of dozens of Palestinian families by Jewish settlers ignited protests and then clashes. Of course with police. I want to be very clear on this. Because this is very important. The Israelis didn't start by killing people. They didn't kill any Palestinians. When this was going on, they didn't murder anybody. You can disagree with their tactics. All you want to. They didn't murder people first. Hamas did. I want to be very clear on that that is very important. Don't always agree with everything that country does. I'm talking about Israel. But in this situation, I think we all could probably agree that Israel was defending themselves. I want to play you a little bit of audio. For a woman by the name of Giordano. Greg. Oh, she is a television resident. I want you to listen to what some of these people have had to go through as she talks a little bit about how she had one minute to run. When the warning the warning sirens, Iran and Israel that bombs were coming. Listen to her. You have 90 seconds. Televisa went closer to God. So you have really just about a bunch of seconds to run to the bomb shelters, But, yeah, you have about a minute to gather your Children and run to the bomb shelter. I mean, Can't even imagine. Imagine for a second. It's hard to but imagine for a moment. Taking a walk with your child. You're walking your dog. Maybe you're going to the supermarket doing that. Every day. People deal. You're just you're just running errands, and then you hear the sirens. And you know what those sirens are? If you live in Israel, it is a warning siren that says you have about a minute minute and a half before you could die and you better take cover. I cannot even imagine we take so many things for granted in the United States. This is what some of these people have to go through. And It breaks my heart and I'm almost speechless with it. Then she goes on, and she talks about how scary the situation was for her. Listen to this was all very stressful toe. Wake my daughter's up and go to the bomb shelters and help our neighbors were old One just had a baby. It was extremely steri. We heard booms and explosions. We weren't sure if the missiles were falling or if he was the Iran Dome intersecting the Rockets. Just awful. My heart goes out to all those innocent people on both sides. Is this is just a terrible situation. And like I said, I I took a trip to Israel when I was very young and I saw a bunch of 16 year olds with guns on their backs, Man. That's no way to live. They're tough people. No question about it. They're tough people. They're defending their country. You can disagree with some of their policies. That's fine. But you cannot tell me that Israel you know that country They're the ones that kill innocent people First. It's always Thomas. It seems like to me and then Israel is forced to defend themselves. That's what happened by the way. Joe Biden made a correct statement. Because he said the United States was in support his administration in support of Israel defending the country. Joe Biden is absolutely right. Now I'm going to tell you something I'm gonna bring up will cost you, Cortez now. But I'm not going to critique her or disagree with her or attacker the way most people do. And I want to start off by preface it by saying, this usually the people, you know the middle aged white people, some of them most of them conservatives that are going after all constant Cortez and have been going after her for a very long time. Usually they go after the fact that she was a bartender. They go after the fact you know that they go after her green new deal stuff. They go after the fact that well, listen to what Donald Trump said. If you don't like it here, go back to where you came from, Um They go after a Costco Cortez for the wrong reasons, and I want to be very clear when I give my opinions And.

So stay strong Help is on the way. Going to get through this, as we always do is Americans were gonna do it together. There's going to be quick. God bless you all and May God protect our troops.

But the things are gonna get back to normal will take a few days. But the gas stations up and down the East Coast will have full tanks by another thought he gave a date. But you can imagine By this weekend things should at least appear to be Uh, we're approaching normal. Israel's defense minister has approved the mobilization of 9000 more reservist troops amid fighting with Hamas, and that is where we kick off tactical Thursday with Brian Suits. Hello, Brian. What's going on? Thank you for not playing the theme. That's a waste of 30 seconds. We'd rather we'd rather hear you talk. That's for sure. You wanna You wanna talk, hack or Gaza? Well, maybe the hack first because I was I was kind of amazed. The president did say Russia didn't have anything to do with the attack. Although the Attackers were probably in Russia. Is it possible? You could put you could perpetrate something like this from inside Russia without the government, knowing Nil are the amount of possibility he's saying that to help Putin say faith because Putin's feed or to the fire because Putin knows that we we could Stop every electrical grid in in Russia by in about an hour from now he knows that and he tolerates these guys because he gets a piece of the action and there Yes, they are part of The G R U military intelligence. That's it's a moneymaking thing. You know if he had if he had called him out, Putin would have gone to the to the sandbags on everything. But yes, you cannot do anything like this inside of Russia without their knowledge, and the Russian deal is okay. You guys in that basement of your mom's house instead loves but we get a piece of it. That they you know, just like Putin weaponized the Russian mob here in California. He's weaponized hackers in Russia because he's not stupid saying, Look, let him let him do this for themselves, if it if it helps us. We get a piece of it, and you know, there's a mechanism of the U. S constitution. Ron Paul talked about this in 2009 of Article one. Section eight allows Congress to issue what are called letters of mark and reparation, and that's private. Um, ship Captain who used to be able to go out and take a royal Navy ship during the war of 18 12 and then sell it and keep the money, you know, And so when he was he was talking about it with the Somali piracy and it never passed me.

And he said, Hey, guys, taken our two and hack Russia, you know, um in the Russia would be, uh, you know, on the sneezing for people who if you know if I'm speaking Swahili for people who don't know The electrical grid is run completely by computer software in 2021. There's no guy going down with a big red handle that, you know, connects, like Dr Frankenstein, you know, animating his monsters. Nothing like that at all, and the United States is divided up into three. Separate grids. There is the West, which is say where we are, for example, the East and that Texas is on its own grid on DSA. So the Iranians have the tools the Chinese have the tools directions of the chilled. The North Koreans have the tools to cripple the western grid for 72 or 100 hours, knowing full well That you know, the people of Virginia couldn't go two days without putting gas in target bags. Yes, we're just demonstrating the value of a hack. The only reason they don't do it is that they assumed that the USS Ronald Reagan will be on the horizon the next morning to bomb the living crap out of all of blended if here's the thing I was just gonna say that Vladimir Putin has his own pet energy project, the Nord Stream to which has been in the news. That's his project to bypass Poland. Ukraine deliver natural gas directly to Germany and in recent days Biden's been kind of trying to figure out what the policy the United States policy is going to be when it comes to this. Pipeline, and it just was odd timing to me that we were just talking about this. And then all of a sudden, over the weekend, the Russians hacked into our major pipeline. Um, yeah, maybe just coincidental. The North Stream thing has been a story for a couple years. It replaces the legacy. Natural gas pipe on. The Europeans have had Putin's needle in their arm for years. For cheap natural gas, and they some of them are waking up to the realization that they're basically paying Don Corleone protection money because he he will have political capital over them at any time because he he cut off Ukraine's natural gas two years ago and called it a hack, But he made Ukraine freeze. Two years ago for for about two months because the Ukrainians cut off the drinking water to the Crimean peninsula..

Hunger-Striking Kremlin Critic Navalny Transferred To Prison Infirmary
"Alexei Navalny warned that his health is deteriorating rapidly. He's been on hunger strike for 20 days. He's protesting the lack of medical care while he's been in prison. Navalny's team has called for a nationwide protests on Wednesday. This is the same day President Vladimir Putin is set to address the nation. NPR's Lucy and Kim in Moscow was following all this and joins us now. Good morning, Lucy in Good morning. What can you tell us at this point about Navalny's condition? Well, the Russian prison service said. This morning, it's decided to move Navalny toe a prison hospital, so that does indicate he may be in poor health. But on the other hand, the prison service also says his condition is satisfactory and that a doctor sees him on a daily basis. So we still know very little about Navalny's exact condition, and that's why his doctors sounded the alarm bells. Over the weekend, They published the results of one of his blood tests on social media, and they said it showed he should be in intensive care and that he could die at any moment from cardiac arrest. The whole reason Navalny is on hunger strike is because he says he's being denied medical attention for back pain and numbness in his legs and hands, and he says that might be linked to a poisoning last summer that he blames on President Putin. A team of doctors tried to visit visit him over the weekend, but they were not let into the prison.
White House: Russia Will Face Consequences if Navalny Dies in Prison
"National security advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN Russia will pay if Putin critic and main opposition leader Alexei Navalny dies in prison. We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr Navalny in their custody is their responsibility, and they will be held accountable by the international community in terms of the specific measures that we would would undertake. We're looking at Variety of different costs that we would impose. And I'm not going to telegraph that publicly at this point, but we have communicated that there will be consequences if Mr Navalny dies, so you've communicated that, But at the top there, President Biden apparently didn't mention Navalny in his call with Putin this week. He certainly didn't say anything about it publicly and his remarks on Thursday, and Russian state media is touting. This is proof that Biden has given up on the issue so Why isn't President Biden demanding Navalny's release? Or at least again, at least getting him a doctor at every single opportunity? Way actually have made the judgment that direct communication to the Russian government on this issue. Including both how we see it. How our allies and partners see it and what might unfold. Should something terrible happened to Mr Navalny? Should he looked terrible Things, of course have already happened to him, but should he pass away? We have judged that rather than just make general statements publicly, the best way to deal with this issue is privately on through diplomatic channels direct to the uppermost levels of the Russian government.

"Of the party. But i think his view of russian history is more of one long interconnected story about russia as a great empire in russia has great power and he wants to sort of subsume the soviet period into this longer narrative setting aside the communist part setting aside the purges in the great terror and all that and instead tell a story about russian achievement whether it's in world war two whether it's in space or whatever so i think that's his view of history and he's been quite critical of lenin in particular because of some decisions that were made in the early nineteen twenties about. How territory was redistributed when they created the soviet union and so he's been critical of that the one soviet leader that he's more positive towards at least publicly Drop who only was general Communist party for less than two years but had previously before that been head of the kgb. And i think putin is one of those people who sort of regrets. That drop didn't have more time. The theory than drop-off would have managed maintaining political control while reforming the economy. Kind of a chinese miracle scenario. I actually don't think that's particularly realistic But that's sort of the way he's perceived as someone who would have kept the system in the country together while making it more competitive in terms of mikhail gorbachev Buddy sealed said. He has always been he. Putin has always been careful to not be too critical of them and of course he worked for yeltsin in the nineteen nineties and yeltsin was the one who appointed him to the top position so he was never directly critical of yeltsin but some of the things he has said about of the nineteen nineties implies that he thinks yeltsin do a very good job and didn't pursue the right policies and mikhail gorbachev. I think he probably along with many others finds him in some ways responsible for the soviet collapse. Even though because gorbachev is still with gorbachev in some ways was sympathetic to putin early on that maintained a cordial public relationship. But i think probably privately. If i had to guess putin was not so impressed with gorbachev's leadership because of the ultimate result so focusing on putin's management side.

"And i was assuming that that russia alone as opposed to the rest of the soviet union. Well it actually was. So that's why they collapsed is so severe first of all when the soviet collapse happened. Russia had about sixty percent of the national wealth of the soviet union but the other forty percent belong to the other fourteen republics and then from that much lower base because of the depression they experienced really from nineteen ninety until about nineteen ninety nine. They lost another fifty percent of their gdp. Now they're reasons to think that those numbers might exaggerate the extent of the collapse but it still obviously the case that russia along with most of the post-soviet space in much of the post-communist world went through a serious economic repression in the nineteen nineties. That's astonishing i mean. It's a greater decline than what america experienced during our great depression. And you're probably familiar. With stories of that. I had a friend actually over there at syracuse university and she had lived through She's russians lived through that and she told me literally. They had nothing to eat in the nineties. Maybe just bread. it's astonishing. Yeah and it wasn't because that there weren't goods available in the stores it was simply because people couldn't afford it because they weren't getting their salaries they might continue working in a factory but the factory had no money coming in so people will just keep working without getting paid. It was unimaginable kind of situation so once they opened up the economy. Good poor in but the question was who could afford them. Not everyone could afford them. So many people remember that time as a very difficult in bleak period for russia right now we talked a little bit about putin suspicion of the west. Was there anything. The west and the united states specifically could have done to not provoke suspicion during that time a huge question that is much debated among specialists many people. For example blame the poor relations on the nato decision to expand nato into the east and that certainly was something that many russians especially rushing the lead saw as a problem threatened russia other people point to the economic reforms that russia pursued in the nineteen nineties in said the reason the economy did so poorly was because in the west deliberately gave bad advice. I don't actually think that's true. I think the economic collapse was in some ways in inevitable consequence of moving from one economic system to a completely different model and if we look at russia compared to its neighbors. Its performance was kind of average in the nineties. Everyone did badly so wasn't like the. Us advice was in some sense causing a problem that in some ways was more systemic than about any particular policies and then there were things like the us decision to withdraw the abm treaty. The us war in iraq. A whole list of things in. If you were to talk to vladimir putin about this he has a very long list of things but it all amounts to in their minds. The us doing what wanted without taking into account the interests of other great powers including russia. So i guess one's opinion of of that the legitimacy of those actions. That's its own separate issue. So.

"Legal last last term as president and in this context he is his putting in motion very very slow moving mechanism that That is designed to ensure that he will not even have to face the possibility of challenge right right and I'm talking about it in Chicago loop way because I think that normal language that we use to describe political processes is always based on assumptions. Is that don't apply to Russia right. Like people have tried to say. Maybe you know it's a cool well. It's a cool if if you can perpetrate a coup against yourself. Putin is the only person with power in Russia and he's staging a coup against You know it breaks down. It's constitutional reform reform even that is misleading because it suggests the Constitution has wait that. There's maybe judiciary that can make independent decisions or anything right so also people say consolidation of power which is like the most difficult one to sort of say no. That's wrong I mean you can't consolidate holiday power and you further it would be a miracle physics. It's already consolidated fully right. So what is what is happening. He he is he's parent. He sees the possibility of a challenge to his power. Where none exists this? This is not without precedent in the history of dictators and in fact. That's what makes dictators most stable dictators fall when they become overconfident when they think that they're truly so beloved by the population that they will for example call an election like Milosevic did and Bingo he falls. Putin is not like that. Putin has paranoid like for example stolen right so he kept sending people to jail or to death for what was in his imagination. The possibility of a challenge to his legitimacy when in fact there was not and Sullen stay in power Until he died in Russia ruled the Soviet Union for thirty years put that style of parent. What his protecting himself against doesn't actually exist and let me just explain? The process is so he has. He gave us very strange very muddy speech attention you know. Most of his speeches are very muddy because they can be interpreted in any way possible. That's part of the way that sort of reality makes is made mushy under Putin But he has created. Ah Commission seventy-five percent commission to propose reforms to the constitution which will then be brought to a popular vote but as a package hatch right. So it's going to be kind of a you know. Yes we're for Putin and his reforms or nowhere against Bush in his report so we know what the outcome of that vote is going to be. People are not actually is going to be able to vote on substantively but the seventy five percent commission consists in part of legislators and jurors which just what you would expect but it also includes theater directors film directors the heads of the two most important museums. Russia The heads of two medical clinics the heads of some charities so what these people have in common is that they're very well known and much loved and their work depends entirely on Putin's goodwill and presidential funding and so it falls to these people to say please we want want to change the constitution to allow you to stay in office for life and also to forever possible Masha.

Yeah I think we're GONNA learn continue to learn a lot about the environment around trump how this happens I think we're GONNA learn a lot more this week we have important new witnesses were appearing before the committee including today Bill Taylor who is the acting ambassador in Ukraine and he is super important because he is there in in Kiev and he is correspond wanding with other diplomats and it's his expressions of deep concern that we read about in the text exchanges with the EU ambassador. Gordon Sunland and a special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker so we've already seen glimpses of Bill Taylor's real concern about what what they were doing and whether trump was trying to make aid Ukraine contingent on cooperating and political affairs and then we have other State Department officials including Phil Reeker who Zeno closely involved in the removal of the ambassador there and of this this whole process it's important to remember the other thing we've learned through the impeachment inquiry so far is there were a lot of people working directly with and for Donald Trump who saw troubling developments on Ukraine way back in the spring there were people in the White House who were freaked out about this for a long time and we are we are still learning more about the extent of their concern and dismay Greg Miller is a national security correspondent for the post on Tuesday Acting Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor testified in that closed door here hang on Capitol Hill Taylor said that he was told the release of military aid to Ukraine had a stipulation it was contingent on Ukrainian officials publicly declaring that they would investigate the Biden's and the two thousand sixteen election that testimony directly contradicts the president who has insisted that there was no quid pro.

"Kris. Hello Hello Jamie. It's such a pleasure to have you on the podcast. I've been wanting to spend some time with the story for weeks now particularly after the municipal elections but I keep getting distracted by the Canadian election election so I'm so glad that we have here today to dig into it well. Let's just put it this week. Canadian elections are a lot more competitive other lot freer and there are a lot more unpredictable predictable in terms of WHO's going to win here in Russia a little bit more open. I'm so so let's let's talk about these elections. That just happened in Russia these local elections and Vladimir on Mir Putin's party. They didn't do so well right. They didn't do so well. You know depending on which way you look at it. It's a glass half full half empty kind of analogy. What's significant about it is that the level of opposition going into these elections was higher than perhaps what the Kremlin expected and I think the outcome was worse than what they expected. pro-kremlin politicians have lost eight third of the seats in Russia's capital disappointing school for the ruling party and its allies who previously occupied thirty eight out the forty-five feet. Let's be clear these are not particularly powerful jobs that that people were running for but what really seemed to galvanized things and what motivated people and motivated the protesters was that they weren't fair obvious. It was rigged from the start. Yes mean fuck. Doc Me is furious together with thousands of others she signed her name in support of a social liberal candidate in Moscow's upcoming local elections but then the electoral commission decreed that the candidate was not allowed to stand DVD's. We weren't given an explanation. They just said that's not your signature that was it and and that gave opponents sort of a common cause to rally around it got people out in the streets and and it posed a whole bunch of problems in terms of how you deal with this kind of There's a word for it here. It's called non systemic opposition and I. It sounds sounds a bit heavy but it's significant because you have two kinds of opposition in Russia. You have the kind that sits in the Duma. That's effectively allowed by Crumlin. They have parameters that they can behave within. They can propose legislation. They can do some things but what they cannot do. They can't go right after the president. They can't criticize Putin Tin and they have to color within the line and then you have the folks out in the street. They're the non systemic opposition and they're the ones that that the government is quite worried about opposition fig. Alex Vanni encouraged tactical voting in the Moscow vote telling his supporters to pick anyone but Putin backed politician in general we can say that the tactical vote worked and it's worked much better than we had expected and you mentioned before that it became clear that these elections were rigged on this might seem like an obvious question but how so well just in terms of who could run I mean they set the bar very high. If you want to challenge for a seat there's is forty some odd seats in Moscow City Hall for example you had to go out and get thousands of signatures in order to mount a challenge if you weren't with one of the authorized parties days and you bring in your signatures and they get scrutinized and the chief electoral person says Sewri all of these signatures or at least hundreds news one thousand of them. We don't believe them think they're fake stalked by. Swin they say to the opposition was not allowed into the polls. This is not true about half of this group is allowed and will participate in the elections. We've asked for the rest. We carefully examined the documents. We wanted to register them but unfortunately there were a number of violations the law that did not allow us to do this is this is what happened not just in one or two or three or four cases but in dozens of cases and really only to so-called independent candidates notably people that were associated with Alexina Valmy who is an anti corruption crusader here. He's the best known foe of Ladimir Putin and the Kremlin hates him hates them so much. You can't even hear his name on state television. I want to talk about state television with you in a moment but this idea that the bar was so high hi to be able to run in the first place the fact that the outcome was worse than what the Kremlin wanted. Does that say something to you about what's happening there. I think it has been discernible for the last eighteen months at least that something has been brewing in Russian society. There's a tension in there and it's a tension between the people and the government and it's manifested itself in a number of ways after the World Cup came that was a great eight high moment for Russians. A few snapped invitations haven't stopped Putin from scoring points off the soccer pitches. Well countries like Italy and Austria have cozied up to it for now at least focuses on football not the international violations which formed much of this country's recent history and it Kinda camouflaged some of the angst that was going on on over a cut in pension as soon as the World Cup ended you just saw Putin's popularity ratings dropped Russia's widely unpopular pension reform bill would raise the retirement age for men from sixty to sixty five and from fifty five to sixty for women business people pensioners almost list of Russian society ten out for this protest and so this was seen as as a rebuke to the ruling class and that has been you know the Political Michael Tremor that has been rippling through this country and I think it very much worry the Kremlin they they look at St Revolutions Arab spring now what happened in my Don in Ukraine in two thousand fourteen triggered the break up of Ukraine days do not art like large crowds totake protests and they do everything they can to to stop them out and can you tell me what they've been doing to stop them because there there have been tens of thousands of people in the street throughout the summer well. I mean in some cases. Some people got horrific terrible jail sentences one guy who went up and you know confronted a cop and then as he was leaving he turned around and saw a tweet the guys visor he got thrown in jail for for three years wow yeah and then in another another case someone else who had gone to these a number of these protests got thrown in jail for four warriors again for breaking a law that says you can't go to multiple unauthorized protests because then you'd be so we saw people carted off by their arms and legs by the hundreds. Most of them were released in what what what they've decided to do since then is to make an example of just a few and I understand there have been further crackdowns even after these elections on the weekend yeah we we've just seen in the last forty eight hours. You know one of the largest police operations for years in Russia's when my daughter called me and said the police came to search the apartment. Actually they cheated their way into the apartment because she opened the door for a neighbor a thousand police officers according to opposition figures going to thirty six different cities either you know searching people's homes or going into their offices seizing laptops seizing notebook notebook seizing phones. Everyone connected to Alexina Valmy. What she seems little says the only this time he got really upset because of the technical voting eighteen as his offspring he's sweet child. I would say the United Russia party has been busted in Moscow and seriously beaten in the regions so this this has been sort of the post election crackdown that the security services have done. Do you think that Putin hold on power is actually being threatened here. If if you look at the response of the security services to the protests over the summer you look at the follow up response now that tells else me that there is concern okay but how deeply worried you know that's that's a very very tricky thing thing we know in the past that in terms of people who are rivals to Vladimir Putin there are very few in Russia. They've either all been driven coach of Russia or in some cases most notably Boris Nemtsov assassinated shot in the back four times just before midnight Moscow time tonight. President Putin condemned the killing but many will believe this was the work of assassins close to the government. I WanNa talk with you a little bit today about how it is is possible. The Vladimir Putin has managed to stay in power in one form or another for two decades. You know my my understanding is that when he took power in late nineteen nineteen ninety s he wasn't expected to stay on as president of Russia. He was kind of like a stopgap measure well. He certainly was unexpected. I mean he he had no He didn't really have much of a national profile. He had briefly headed the secret. Police had jobs in a senior jobs in Saint Petersburg but really the it kind of came out of the Blue Vladimir Putin the career spy talks about establishing what he calls a dictatorship of the law fight corrupt bureaucrats crats and strengthen the central government. I think you know when we talk about Vladimir Putin. He's he's such an interesting figure because there's diametrically opposed ways of seeing him. I'm in the West and in Russia here. There's a great many Russians who have a ton of respect for all that he's done and they see someone who came into an extremely difficult job in an extremely difficult situation and fixed a country that was essentially broken. Its economy wasn't working. Its institutions.
