Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Committee 2008 is an umbrella organization of the Russian democratic opposition, formed in January 2004 in response to what they saw as the growing authoritarianism of President Vladimir Putin. The Committee's aim is to ensure free and fair presidential elections in 2008 and to prevent an appointment of a chosen Kremlin successor.
