This election result is pretty much ideal. (1) Sobyanin won in the first round - and not by an absolutely minimal amount like ~1% (which could provoke protests from the perennially malcontented aka the street opposition), but by a comfortable 3%+. (2) Navalny got a solid 30%, which means that - if rumors are to be believed - the Kremlin may back off from throwing him in jail. (3) The vote was by all accounts fairly counted, so any complaints from the hamsters on that count will be getting short shrift. (4) Last but definitely not least, @MarkPavelovich is now my slave (as opposed to it being the other way round).
