Communist Propaganda

Here’s something to help inject a little humour into what is already becoming a tired story.  There are still 11 months to go until Russia’s presidential elections, but the Putin-Medvedev will-he-won’t-he presidential rivalry debate is already preoccupying journalists.  This inspired piece of propaganda from the Communist Party takes the naturally comic elements of the tandem’s rivalry to a Hollywood-blockbuster style extreme – the best scene, perhaps, depicting a family in a car screaming as they desperately try to get away from a rapidly encroaching Vladimir Putin. The message is simple: sick of the drama? Vote for the alternative! Which begs the question, what alternative?
