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 intervention of President Vladimir Putin in the Davos Forum was silenced by Western media, a censorship that is not strange as his words certified the lack of viability of the unipolar world and the neoliberal model.
The claim that Vladimir Putin’s words at the World Economic Forum of Davos were silenced by Western media is false. Putin’s intervention on January 27, 2021 was widely covered by most Western media present at the event, including the Financial Times, The Washington Post, Time Magazine, Bloomberg, Deutsche Welle, the South China Morning Post and The Moscow Times, as well as in languages other than English, by Le Monde (France), El País (Spain), Corriere Della Sera (Italian) or Süddeutsche Zeitung (German), just to name a few. The speech was also streamed live by the World Economic Forum itself and by the Reuters agency, among others.
This is a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western censorship and Russia as an alternative to neoliberalism. See other examples in our database, such as claims that the US censors people on the internet while Russia doesn’t; that the era of liberal democracy and freedom of speech is over since corporations and states are unified in the promotion of censorship; that the US entered an era of neo-liberal totalitarianism; that the neoliberal forces behind Navalny will intensify their efforts to destroy Russia; that a war with Russia is the last hope for globalists; or that Russia’s RT is the voice of truth.
