Mr. Medvedev is Putins man. Is it good or bad for Russia? Really hard to say. So far situation is stable, we'll see.

UPD. Pre voting joke:

50% of the population will vote for Djirinovski (Liberal Party - weird guy) just for the sake of a joke, and other 50% will not vote because they are sure that Medvedev will win anyways.
