It is another matter to think about the question of the reasons that made this coup d’etat possible. And what we are witnessing is a coup – brazen, large-scale and, alas, successful.

The “Deep State” decides who may or may not become president of the US.
The existence of a “Deep State” is by no means to be denied here. There are definitely forces at work in the U.S. that decide, without democratic legitimacy, who may or may not become president.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically a so-called ‘Deep State’ in the United States who rule above elected officials. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions.

The US presidential election process is based on democratic principles. There are no secret forces at work in the US that decide, without democratic legitimacy, who may or may not become president. The OSCE Observation Mission has stated that the 2020 Presidential election were “competitive and well managed”. Read more OSCE statements on the 2020 American elections here.
See other examples of these disinformation narratives, such as claims that the result of the US 2020 election doesn’t matter because the real ruler is the Deep State, which will kill any US president that confronts it and is moving the country towards war with Iran and Russia; that the “Deep State” fights with Trump; or that Covid-19 vaccines will lead to full spectrum dominance.
