The immediate goal of Ukraine’s military preparations, together with the US and NATO, is to kill the Russians of Donbas. They don’t even hide it.
“Navalny’s supporters”, or, to put it simply, the henchmen of the US Democratic Party, will continue to organise protests up to the parliamentary elections in September 2021. After the elections they will declare that the “election was stolen” and summon the mutinists for a decisive attack.
Why is this attack happening in 2021, why did they not prepare it earlier or later? Why did the western special forces decide to go ahead on operation “Navalny” last summer and only now give order on a killing blow on the Russian state? The answer is obvious: in 2020 Russia demonstrated its superiority compared to the united West.
A combination of several disinformation tropes, employed by pro-Kremlin outlets: the concept of”Russian superiority”, of “Western aggression” and a recurrent narrative about expressions of popular discontent as results of foreign involvement.
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 authorities over his conviction by a Russian court of 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 or the US Democratic party.
Alexei Navalny was detained following his return to Russia after he was treated in Germany for the poisoning with the Novichok-type nerve agent. The European Union has condemned the detention of Alexei Navalny and called for his immediate release.
