Protests in Russia: opposition at a crossroads

The Daily Telegraph publishes an online supplement by Rossiyskaya Gazeta which looks at the impact of the recent protests, and analyses where the opposition is heading. The article endorses Opposition Co-ordinating Council (OCC) Gennady Gudkov’s assessment that the protest movement is at a crossroads, and that its further course depends on the willingness of the authorities to hear its demands: if the government listens to the protest movement, the opposition will seek a compromise; if it ignores it, then the protest may become radicalised and uncontrollable.
