This pretty much sums up the bitterness a lot of people are feeling today. From the New York Times:
Sergei N. Tanikov, 57, a retired lieutenant colonel in the KGB, said he was voting for Mr. Zyuganov and planned to join the protest on Monday evening.
“Today nothing will be decided,” Mr. Tanikov said outside a polling station in Moscow. “I have never participated in a protest but tomorrow I will go out because I can no longer tolerate this fascist regime.”
He said that the outpouring of demonstrators had moved him to tears. But he said things would not change peacefully. “There will be blood,” he said. “Putin will not give up power.”
