The Russian opposition to Putin is what we’d call very right-wing. The best, the smartest, the most honest opponents of Putinism are way to the right of, say, Fox News. I hope it’s clear why. (It obviously has nothing to do with Fox News. I’m just using it as a reference point).
It’s the same in Ukraine. Anybody of any intelligence and honesty is what we here would call right-wing. Again, it’s not surprising given the recent Soviet past. It’s not possible for a person with a functioning brain who experienced socialism and is still living amidst its ruins to have a positive reaction to anything that smacks of leftism.
By the way, I found the information I referenced in the preceding post on the only surviving (and barely so) oppositional newspaper in Russia.
