As you know the political situation in Russia is quite despondent. Not because of ultimate power of the Kremlin, but because of absence of any serious political opposition. And this is hard lineage of 75 years of pure socialism. Russians just don't know how to communicate. When western children studied their communication skills, Russian children had only ABC with stories about Lenin - the kindest person in the history.
And as I see, there is only one exit from this endless deadend. To teach people how to start dialogue between the goverment and the society. IMHO, comics is the best tool for that.
