Russia, Part 2

I swear, I'm not looking for things that make me angry about Russia, they just keep turning up. Now it seems there's a Kremlin-sponsored summer camp for about 10,000 youths that depicts the leaders of Other Russia (the coalition of non-Putin parties dedicated to averting a de facto dictatorship in the country, put together and arguably led by former chess champion Garry Kasparov) as prostitutes, and apparently teaches the li'l campers that they're fascists. Funny how "democratic" gets confused with fascists so often in authoritarian regimes. How long shall we give Other Russia before it is banned or chased from the political scene?
