Oleg Kozlovsky speaking to Echo of Moscow radio on the day he received his formal discharge papers after being illegal conscripted into the Russian Army to silence his political activism in the lead-up to the "presidential elections."

The fine print in the blue center section of this billboard standing on a Moscow street tells you that it was installed by the state-owned "Russia" television network. This appears below the Russian national crest with the double-headed eagle, making it appear that this is an official government pronouncement, which in fact it basically is. In the white top section, the date "March 2" is given -- the date on which "presidential elections" were to be held in Russia. The sign was standing long before that date, it was blogged in early February, it's not a message of congratulations. The red section reads: "The election of President Dimitry Medvedev." As a reader points out in the comments, it could be a Photoshop -- if so, it's excellent political satire.
