Garry Kimovitch Kasparov, my hat goes off to him. Unfortunately he is a captain with a very small army. Anyone who stands against the Russian political machine is a marked man. I think Kasparov’s cause is just and his fight good. I wish, pray and hope that he can achieve his goals before the end of Putin’s reign, because I think things will only get worse if Sergei Ivanov gets into power. If Russia is to stand any chance of having an open and honest democracy then people like Kasparov need to be supported and kept alive. Pray for this man and pray for Russia.
