But KPRF and LDPR are not pro-western yes men, so they don't count!
I guess you need to go down to parties with zero popular support to find one that aligns with US dreams for russia.
It's funny they never report that batshit-insane Zhironovsky*, has 12 times the support, and communists have 20x. That's how unelectable these people the US roots for are.
*some selected examples:
- expressed a desire to reunite countries of the ex-Soviet "near abroad" with Russia to within the Russia's borders of 1900 (including Finland and Poland).
- advocated forcibly retaking Alaska from the United States (which would then become "a great place to put the Ukrainians")
- Zhirinovsky, who encourages separatism within the Russian minority in the Baltic countries, endorsed the forcible re-occupation of these countries and said nuclear waste should be dumped there.
- advocated hitting some Chechen villages with tactical nuclear weapons.
There's simply too much great comedy this guy comes up with.
