Another Original LR Translation: Annals of the Horrors of Nashi, Part I (by our Original Translator)
It turns out that long before the election results were known early Monday morning Russia time, Vladimir Putin's Hitler-youth cult "Nashi" ("Us Slavic Russians") had already figured them out. Therefore, it started printing up banners hailing Putin's victory and attacking critics who had not yet spoken. They've appeared on the Russian web, and our original translator favors you with their English meanings, along with some commentary from a few leading opposition figures -- all from the pages of the mighty Yezhedvny Zhurnal.

(TN: Shortly after YeZh posted the article above, the leaflet in question was posted on another online journal with confirmation from Kristina Potupchik, press secretary for the of the Nashi organization, that it was in fact produced by Nashi.
