Guardian take of the comment from Mikhail Prokhorov

As noted by the Guardian’s Russian correspondent Tom Parfitt in an article entitled Russia’s era of managed democracy is over, claims presidential candidate,  Mikhail Prokhorov may call for change  in an opinion piece posted in the newspaper, but has never publicly criticised Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

So it remains to be seen how much his approach will garner extensive public support, as the public protests in Russia against the falsification of the December elections called directly for regime change.
