Elections for the next president of the Russian Federation will be held on March 2nd. But in St.Petersburg at least, things are quiet. I haven't been watching tv, but I checked the Internet news sites and there are no headlines about the Russian elections. There is a little information on Russian news sites, but it is eclipsed by an announcement about Putin's last presidential speech. In St.Petersburg, there are a few billboards reminding people to vote. But unlike during the parliamentary campaigns in the fall, there are no flashy messages urging people to lend their voice. Apparently, it doesn't matter whether they vote or not. Everything is already decided.
