It is nice to know that each party followed through with their agenda. President Putin goes back to his residence, and the demonstrators feeling happy go back to theirs flats/houses/mansions. Nothing changes, but the circus can spice up a boring visit.
"To watch the sun sink behind a flower clad hill.
To wander on in a huge forest without thought of return. To stand upon the shore and gaze after a boat that disappears behind distant islands. To contemplate the flight of wild geese seen and lost among the clouds.
And, subtle shadows of bamboo on bamboo." Zeami Motokiyo
