Limonov Files October 9, 2007
Limonov vs. Western Journalists
British Newspaper Hacks "Other Russia" Story To Bits By Edward Limonov Browse author
Page 2 of 2

And another thing: I was married few times to exceptionally beautiful and talented women. Look at your ugly wifes, assholes of journalism!

After that angry introduction I am ready to explain what we are doing in "Other Russia" alliance. By procedure of "primaries" which the alliance have held in 57 regions around Russia, we realized democratical right of our supporters to choose their candidates for the State Duma elections. The primaries happened in August and September. Finally on September 30, we have held 1st Congress of "Other Russia," where its delegates have voted for the list of 365 candidates to the State Duma. The delegates also have voted for the united and only one candidate of opposition for presidential elections in March 2008. Garry Kasparov was elected by overwhelming majority.

On October 1, Kasparov and Limonov followed by journalists and supporters, have deposited the list of our 365 candidates to hands of member of Central Electoral Committee, Mister Raikov. Bolshoi Cherkasskii pereulok, the street where the CEC is located, was surrounded by forces of OMON and militsia forces. However, they let us hand in our list. Raikov have promised to discuss our demand to include our list, which is headed by three figures: Viktor Geraschenko (former Central Banker), Garry Kasparov, and Edward Limonov. We understood that our demand will be rejected, but we wanted to have an answer. We were challenging the Kremlin. It was an historical challenge. We were refusing to play at their dirty game, on that precise day of October 1st.

No matter what answer to our demand we will have, we, "Other Russia," will proceed with our electoral campaign. We will stick leaflets and stickers to the walls of Russian cities, will hold Marches of Dissenters, will lunch all possible means of propaganda for our candidates. We will irritate and challenge authorities up to the December 2, the day of Duma elections. We will summon our supporters to vote for the "Other Russia": they will be asked to write the letters "DR" ("Drugaya Rossia" or "Other Russia") across their ballots. Those ballots with improper writing on them will be classified by Electoral Commission as "damaged." The amount of damaged ballots will be our electorate: the "Other Russia" supporters.

Our next steps I will not reveal to you now. In order to not give the Kremlin time to prepare its forces for confrontation. You will have some information on politician Edward Limonov from reporter Edward Limonov in due time.
