“Elites in Russia are dissatisfied. But right now they are not scared enough,” said Ponomarev. “They need to see the ghost of 1917.”

This is cool (even though I could quibble with bits of the article’s description of his project). A TV station run by a former Russian parliamentarian who describes himself as “left-libertarian” is broadcasting anti-Putin, anti-regime stuff into Russia. Seems like he actively identifies the working class as a major vector for change, and not only the urban liberals you hear so much about in the West.
