Kasparov-Belkovskii match, or 

Russia after Putin: notes for a fundraiser. 

And in the right cor--n-e-rrr ....the undefeatable....

Garry Kasparov:

Garry Kasparov
As history has shown, for such dictatorships as Putin's regime, the collapse of the aggressive foreign policy  course becomes a trigger for protests explosion inside the country. As  I said already, the rejection of  Imperial Concepts  is the principle objective for Russia. We have to do something that was not done 25 years ago and to formulate what  should really be  the state under the name of Russia. The country should get vaccinated against imperial virus and finally get rid of 'phantom limb'  of "lost  greatness". It is those  imperial illusions that Putin's regime plays  upon, ensuring the support of a large part of the Russian society, despite the growing socio-economic strain. People should, finally,   realize that all  these things are interconnected. It is obvious that, after the collapse of Putin's regime, Russia needs to have a  period of "purification", during which time the people need to understand that there is a price to pay for everything - for support of Putin, for Georgia, Crimea and Donbass . Germany and Japan have paid a terrible price for unleashing World War II, and during the last 70 years the vaccination they  received works. Our task is not to allow that Russia had to pay that high price, but people must understand that there's a price they will have to pay. They will have to listen to the unpleasant things about what happened, that they, in fact, supported the crimes of the regime. They will  have to acknowledge that, with their consent, the country was looted, and the recovery process will take a long time, comparable with the length of the robbery (...)

And in the left cor--n-e-rrr ...the one and only we could find....

GK Kasparov has no special  vision of the future of Russia. Those  terms and categories are not even on his agenda that much. 

The ex-champion is a professional fundraisers. That is,  somebody who  raises banal moneys  for different projects. A significant part of which, ultimately, goes to the fundraiser himself.

A psychology of a professional fundraisers is this. For him, at the time of release / receipt of funds the project does not begin , but rather ends there. A further result is not so important. Very likely, the project will fail and collapse. Well, so this is due to force majeure, generated by unhinged Putin,  and by acquiescence of the West, so far--s**t--not ready to launch a nuclear attack on the residence "Praskoveevka" near Gelendzhik.

But the fundraiser is doing well anyway. He very logically  explains the failure to sponsors and goes on to collect money for new projects.

Thus the  priority for the  brilliant Garry Kasparov  is not this or that strategy of development of Russia. But rather a correct tactics of collecting money for the current war against Putinism.

Not Russian future is important here, but the Kasparov's own present.

Today, in light of the obvious successes of the peace-loving foreign policy of the Russian Federation in 2014-15,  it is easier  to raise funds In the West for the most hawkish plan imaginable. Something like, the day will come when I'll destroy everything in Russia, and nothing at all will be tolerated!  -As the sources at least relatively tolerant to the fact of the existence of VPP (Putin) -regime,   will not give money to Kasparov anyway.
