Russian opposition leaders to be arrested

The Other Russia opposition leaders, Garry Kasparov and Eduard Limonov, have found out the Russian authorities are planning on arresting them to prevent them from attending the Other Russia coalition’s National Assembly in two weeks.

These “tactical” arrests are nothing new in the neo-Soviet Russia, of course, but what’s new is going after these high profile leaders in such a manner. Garry Kasparov, of course, is well known around the world for being the grand master chess player.
