"The former Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, has blasted Russia's duumvirate leadership for presiding over 'imitation democracy' and displaying contempt for voters. In his harshest criticism yet of the ruling tandem of President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Mr. Gorbachev said the duo showed 'incredible contempt' for the electorate by asserting that they would decide between them who runs for President in the coming election in 2012."
