  Russia: Answering terrorism with dictatorship | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Russia is a huge country, and many of its regions (Russia's equivalent to U.S. states) are homelands to distinct ethnic groups.
The other half of Russia's deputies are currently elected nationwide, from lists submitted by political parties that win seats according to their share of the national votes (as long as it is over 5 percent).
Several critics within and outside of Russia have noted that Putin's proposals to cancel gubernatorial elections and end election of individual deputies to the national legislature have little direct connection to fighting terrorism and smack of an opportunistic use of the terrorist attack as cover for a plan long in the making.

 Rethinking Russia's place in history, art and politics (11/98)

Primakov is the best leader for Russia at this time because he is the only one who can bridge the gap between nationalists and democrats, said Sergay Kortunov, who was deputy chief of staff of President Yeltsin's defense council until it was disbanded recently.

VLADIMIR, Russia -- Nikolai Bogdanov hobbled painfully down the dark, moldy corridor of the tuberculosis ward, through the thick clouds of cigarette smoke, past dozens of men in flannel shirts, jeans, and slippers, many of them with faces as gaunt and sallow as his own.

 STAR: Religion in Russia
There are roughly 17,500 religious groups in Russia where a highly controversial 1997 law requires that they be accepted and registered on the governmental list of authorized faiths by December 31, 2000.
On the other hand, religious leaders, such as Patriarchs and Popes, are committed and bound to the ideal that their religion and church is the one true faith as mandated by Christ.
Understanding that, they are compelled to consider other sects or traditions a threat; not so much as a threat to their power, but a threat to the innocent souls who may, in their opinion, fall victim to false prophets, promises and doctrine.
