The technology for a velvet revolution was widely used in the summer of 2020 in Belarus. Later, the same toolbox was attempted in Russia. Both countries withstood the attempts of a soft coup d’état.
The fact that a lot of money was invested in the blogger Lyosha [Alexei Navalny] speaks volumes. First, Lyosha, with his anti-rating inside Russia was taken too seriously by the West.
Navalny is the very “pocket president” trained by the globalists to replace Putin. Lyosha himself is nobody, the same zero as the president of one very independent state [Ukraine], but he is not even required to have any particular qualities. He should become a screen for external management, and his imprisonment has broken all the plans.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexei Navalny. The claim that Navalny is somehow used by the West to replace Putin with a "pocket president" controlled by the globalists and to destabilise Russia is unfounded.
The author of the article uses a Russian diminutive of Alexei, Lyosha, when speaking about Navalny, in order to show his insignificance inside Russia. However, the facts speak for themselves about Navalny's ratings in Russia. Anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny has long been the most prominent face of Russian opposition to President Vladimir Putin. His candidacy in the 2018 presidential election was banned by the authorities over his conviction by a Russian court for embezzlement, which bars him from running for office. He has been arrested and imprisoned several times during his political career.
There is no evidence to suggest that the Russian opposition figure was, or has been, in connection with foreign intelligence services. It should be noted that an opposing narrative, that the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) is a Kremlin project and that Navalny is an agent of the Russian secret services is also pure speculation and not based on facts.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine, is also indirectly targeted in this disinformation narrative, which states that Zelenskyy and Navalny are similar since both are "zero" with no particular qualities. Zelenskyy is a recurring target of pro-Kremlin outlets, which tend to present him as a puppet of the CIA, Soros, or the Turkish President, who is blackmailed by the West and whom Joe Biden will soon replace.
Read similar cases claiming that The Masters behind the meddling in Russian affairs need a new fake leader; that The West uses Navalny as a key factor in the political destabilisation of Russia; that Navalny is just a tool, not a real opposition leader; or that the neo-liberal forces behind Navalny will intensify their attempts to destroy Russia.
