Thimblerig and the Elections

Ivan Davydov speaks of Russian elections on the example of gambling The fuss around the elections desperately resembles the vibe markets in the nineties were famous for.

The Missing Value

Ivan Davydov’s thoughts on the appointment of Turchak as Vice-Speaker of the Federation Council About a month ago, I wrote an article for Russiangate related to the career rise of the freshly dismissed Pskov Governor Andrei Turchak; he became acting secretary of the General Council of United Russia just then.
