So everybody knows that Vladimir Milov’s opposition party PARNAS was recently denied the right to compete in Duma elections, as the electoral authorities claimed that there were errors on the registration paperwork. So even if the liberal democracy-leaning community is small, they won’t even get the chance to show how many votes they could get.
Vampires, on the other hand, are apparently looking to avoid that fate, as they scramble to set up some protection for their community through the registration of their own organization. According to Lenta.ru, a group has put forth the paperwork to establish the “Youth Front for Vampire Protection,” which will work to protect the rights of non-humans and other creatures that officially, for lack of a better description, don’t even exist. No word yet if zombies will be protected by the group (don’t take it personally, Dan Drezner).
Translated from Lenta.ru:
A front for the protection of vampires is soon to appear in Russia
Shortly in Russia a front for the protection of vampires and other nonhumans will be established. The registration of the organization has already begun in St. Petersburg, according to a press release gathered by “Lentu.ru.” The idea for the creation of the front belongs to the founders of the social network Nuara.ru, aimed at those who consider themselves vampires, elves and goblins.
