Another week, another brilliant video lampooning the election campaign from the sensationally popular "Citizen Poet”, a supremely clever joint effort of the poet Dmitri Bykov and the actor Mikhail Efremov.  Somewhat limiting the appeal to the average Westerner, fluency in Russian current affairs and knowledge of Russian poetry are musts. I suppose it doesn’t hurt to be familiar with Yorick, either.
