This is Kaliningrad's big chance (if they want it)

 I know basically nothing about the current politics or culture of Kaliningrad Oblast, but this article makes me wonder what would happen if the Russian semi-enclave had a popular protest and/or declared independence right now. I don't think there's very much Russia could do about it at the moment if the locals rejected Putin's authority.

Apparently, there was a separatist political party between 1993 and 2003. But it was outlawed almost 20 years ago. Putting aside that Czech practical joke (thanks H-Bob!) does anyone know if there is a current serious independence movement in Kaliningrad?
