China Decries Democratic Decline In Russia

I am not making this up, seriously!

Here are some of the more interesting quotes:
Russia puts itself on the same level as China in not electing the mayor of its capital, unlike all the big Western powers against which Russia likes to measure itself.
I do not believe that quote as intended to be a compliment.  There are a few more jewels in the article to add insult to injury, like this one:
With the liberal opposition not represented in the Moscow parliament, ironically it was left to the Communists — the remnant of the party that once ruled the entire Soviet Union — to gripe about the methods used.
You see, even the communists are not happy!
