    That depends. There is always a powerful elite. Every country has one, do not make the naive mistake of thinking that so called "democratic" countries (eg: America, Britain, etc) do not have a powerful elite at the top. That doesnt mean reform is impossible, or that the elite would necessarily oppose reform.

    I agree, but in Russia it's a little more obvious then in ''democratic'' countries you mentioned above. What I found most worrisome and saddening, is that Russia's youth doesn't believe in change. They feel powerless and want to leave the country, at least that's my impression after having lived for a year in Russia.

    This cheap PR stunt did remind me of a similar issue in France some weeks ago, when Sarkozy tried to improve his reputation by having him kissing Carla ''accidentally'' being broadcast on TV. I wonder what they used to make him cry. Too obvious.
