«I hope it has dawned on the country's leaders that the political system needs change. If so, the parliament is a good place to start,» said Boris Makarenko, a political analyst at the Centre for Political Technologies think-tank.

«United Russia still has a majority but it's much smaller now and it looks like the parliament will become a place for proper discussion again.»

«Espero que los líderes del país se hayan dado cuenta que el sistema político tiene que cambiar. Si es así, el Parlamento es un buen punto de partida», comentó Boris Makarenko, analista político del centro de estudios Tecnologías Políticas.

«Rusia Unida aún tiene una mayoría, pero ahora es mucho más pequeña y parece que el Parlamento se convertirá en un lugar apropiado para el debate», señaló.
