To: Do not dub me shapka broham
In a column for The Wall Street Journal Kasparov wrote that “Putin must go,” and said that the president showed his “true colors” as a typical Soviet-style leader in his speech after the hostage-taking in Beslan.

From the Article. Exactly what I said. Putin was a crony back in the 80's. I doubt he is a believing communist, but I DO think that the brainwashing that IS communism and certain aspects (authoritarianism) still color his thinking today.

You do realize that Kasparov has some 3% of the population backing him, none of the other opposition parties would ally themselves with him and his entire plan for the nation of Russia is summed up in him giving interviews for Western media name calling Putin and telling the West how dumb Russians are. Except for the left intelligencia (and a small percentage of them at that) no one supports him. Khodorkovsky has a better pull, at 4% then Kasparov and he's in jail.
