DISINFO: Next wave of liberal protests might “accidentally coincide” with terror attacks
It seems that the ramping up of the destabilization attempts is scheduled for September 2021, – the period of the Russian general election that will include the next legislative election and the election of 11 governors. The liberal opposition has already proven that it is ready to even sacrifice children in order to achieve the ambitions of its sponsors. If the Russian government does not employ preventive measures, these people will easily find large support from Russia’s geopolitical opponents. Next time staged anti-government protests can ‘accidentally coincide’ with industrial disasters, cyberattacks, and even terrorist attacks.
An unfounded conspiracy theory, consistent with a recurrent narrative about expressions of popular discontent as results of foreign involvement.
The 2021 Russian protests began on 23 January 2021 in support of the arrested opposition leader Alexei Navalny and as a reaction to the investigation Putin's Palace. The rallies — from Russia’s Far East to central Moscow — came less than a week after Navalny returned from Germany, where he recovered from a nerve agent poisoning in August during a trip to Siberia. Navalny was arrested shortly after stepping off the plane.
The EU has condemned the detention of Alexei Navalny and called for his immediate release.
More than 3,300 people were arrested in protests spanning nearly 70 cities and towns across Russia.
