    Russian secret police breaks up plot against Putin government... supposedly, anyway

    Russian secret police, FSB, arrested a group of men, mostly former military officers, in the city of Ekaterinburg, in the Ural region. Large stockpiles of weapons, ammunition, explosives, and literature of 'extremist' nature was found in their homes (in Russia, 'extremist' can mean anything, by the way. If it criticizes the government, it is 'extremist'). The men were all members of 'Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky People's Miltia' and 'Popular Front for the Liberation of Russia', and personal friends and supporter of Colonel Vladimir Kvachkov

    (Vladimir Kvachkov - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)who heads both illegal militias and who is currently imprisoned on charges of plotting to assasinate Anatoly Chubais (Anatoly Chubais - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), a charge on which he has now been tried four times, and found not guilty each time, by a jury.

    I don't know. Most Russians are finding this hard to believe. It smacks of both Putin's paranoia and FSB's need to prove they are still 'in the saddle', still relevant and needed, and still taking care of important business. A PR campaign for them, of sorts. You know, the government is only raising funding for security and military forces now. And will keep on doing so.

    What we hear is, they are expecting trouble, unrest, after the Presidential Election of 2012. They are preparing for... anything, really. Including a large-scale Libya-style revolt. Not that I think that's actually possible there.

    I am virtually always on the side of the opposition, the revolutionaries, sometimes I even sympathize with anarchists. Well looks like they are religious !!

    ps I would even wish the monarchists luck, but never the Comminists.

    Just remember from a country near you the Ukrainian anarchists long live !!!!! Mykhailo Drahomanov and Nestor Makhno and long live anarchismm , down with the Central governments !!! !!!

    My great-grandfather was in Makhno's army. At least so I'm told.

    Another group that I have sympathy for are the people Don Kozak area.... and lost tribes of Ukrainian Kozaks in the Kuban area. Stalin did a nasty job on those peoples also.
