Syrians have gained new experiences over the past decade through the war. Even information wars are no longer able to have an impact and have lost credibility, especially after false accusations of using chemical weapons, which were destroyed in Syria at the request of the Russian side.

In 2012, after the elections to the “Coordination Council of the Opposition”, a closed conference was held in Estonia on the theme of the development of e-democracy. It was organised through the Soros Foundation (recognised as an undesirable organisation) and Estonian government organisations, including the republican electoral commission, and Leonid Volkov [head of Navalny's network of headquarters] appeared there “quite by accident”.
And at whose expense was the banquet? Who paid for such an event? The trip of the opposition to this conference was paid for by one of the funds of the American politician George Soros. The activists lived in a five-star hotel. Tickets and full support were paid by the host party.
