Provocateurs Instigate Violence During Anti-Government Protest In Moscow As State Department Cries Foul About ‘Democracy’ And ‘Universal Rights’
South Front, Jan 23 2021

The leadership and sponsors of the Russian neo-liberal/pro-Western opposition at least partly achieved what they want triggering some clashes and violence during protests in Moscow. The ‘opposition’ employed mobile organized groups of provocateurs, which were attacking police officers in an attempt to instigate large-scale violence. Police were actively working to neutralize them. For example, the video below shows how a man atatcks police officers and then tries to hide in the crowd. This tactic is aimed at provoking clashes between riot police and protesters.

Russian media report that the attackers used pieces of ice and other improvised means. They tried to knock police officers down and drag them into the crowd. Attempts to seize special equipment from the security forces were also noted. Information about the victims has not yet been reported. According to MSM, the number of participants in rallies in Moscow is about 10k. Taking into account a large number of minors tricked into events via large-scale propaganda campaign in social media, journalists, bloggers and just ‘free walkers’, the real amount is even less than even this, likely exaggerated, number. This situation shows that the Western-controlled Russian opposition has no real support among the population despite attempts to paint the ongoing events like the large-scale rebellion against the government. Pro-opposition media outlets clam that the total number of protesters detained across the entire country is over 800.

Protesters clash with Police:


To provide some context, the official population of Moscow is almost 12 million. The de-facto population is likely over 14 million. This shows that the neo-liberal/pro-Western opposition in fact has no real support among the population. The core of ‘opposition supporters’ during rallies is hired radicals, youth with no permanent job, hardcore neo-liberals, minorities of various kinds and people that do not associate themselves with the Russian nation and state.

An ordinary Russian partiot according to the ‘Russian opposition’:

‘Protesting Russians’ with a flag of the Belarusian anti-government protests:

Protesters beat an opponent of Navalny and threw him from a street-lamp:

The situation did not go without public and blatant foreign meddling. Mainstream social media artificially contribute to the spread of anti-Russian information.

The US State Dept is also in action. It already declared that ‘the administration of Biden and Haris’ supports anti-government protests in Russia and demanded to release Alexey Navalny, the formal leader of the neo-liberal opposition. Navalny was recently detained due to his blatant violations of the conditions of the probationary period, since he had previously been conditionally sentenced to 5 years in the so-called “Yves Rocher case” (Aleksei and Oleg Navalny were convicted of stealing about $500k from two Russian firms, one of which was affiliated with French cosmetics company Yves Rocher and of laundering part of the amount). After being discharged from the Charité hospital in September, he ignored summons to the Penitentiary Inspectorate, where he had to appear twice a month. Forces behind attempts to destabilize Russia as well as Navalny himself knew well that because of this he will be detained when he returns to Russia. Nonetheless, the facts are ignored and the entire case is being painted as a kind of ‘political persecutions’ in Russia. The fun fact is that this is being done by the United States administration that just recently called a half of its own population ‘domestic terrorists’ and ‘fascists’ because these US citizens did not support the establishment of the neo-liberal totalitarianism in the country. Despite the lack of successes on Dec 23, there are no doubts that this was just a test case in the front of the coming large-scale campaign to undermine stability in Russia and destroy its statehood. This campaign has never really stopped, but in the current conditions, it is expected that it will be intensified.

Alexei Navalny & Russia-Baiting: Biden Brings Back Business as Usual
Kit Knightly, OffGuardian, Jan 23 2021

Joe Biden enters the White House with an entourage of faces very familiar to OffGuardian, and many of those readers who have been with us since the beginning. Glassy-eyed Jen Psaki is once again taking the White House press briefings. Victoria “Fuck the EU” Nuland is going to be Sec State Under-Sec State for Political Affairs, and Samantha Power is hoisted back onto a platform from which she can berate the rest of the world for not following America’s “moral example” by bombing Syria back to the stone age. It was the machinations of these people, along with Biden as VP, Kerry as Sec State and of course Obama leading the charge, that lead to the coup in Ukraine, the war in Donbass and, indirectly, the creation of this website. For it was our comments on the Guardian telling this truth that got everyone here banned, multiple times. So for us, pointing out cold-war style propaganda is like slipping back into a comfy pair of shoes.

A good thing too, because with this coterie of neocon-style warmongers comes another familiar friend: the propaganda war on Putin’s Russia. Throughout the media and on every front, all within hours of Biden’s inauguration. Now, anti-Russia nonsense didn’t go away while Trump was President. If anything, it became deranged to the point of literal insanity in many quarters. But it definitely quietened down in the last 12 months, with the outbreak of the “pandemic.” No more! Now we’re back to good old-fashioned cold-war craziness. The media tell us that Russia was a “spectre that loomed over Trump’s presidency,” that one of the Capitol Hill rioters intended to “sell Nancy Pelosi’s laptop to Russia,” and other such brazen hysteria. Of course underneath the standard pot-stirring propaganda to keep the “new cold war” on the boil, there is the Navalny narrative. An incredibly contrived piece of political theatre that may even evolve into a full-on attempt at regime change in Moscow.

For starters, three days before Biden’s inauguration, Alexei Navalny (having supposedly only just survived the poison the FSB placed “in his underpants”), returned to Russia. Where he was promptly arrested for violating the terms of his bail. He knew he would be arrested if he returned to Russia, so his doing so was pure theatre. That fact is only underlined by the media’s reaction to his 30-day jail sentence. Yes, that’s thirty DAYS, not years. He’ll be out before spring. Even if he’s convicted of the numerous charges of embezzlement and fraud, he faces only 3 years in prison. Nevertheless, already the familiar Russia-baiters in the media are comparing him to Nelson Mandela. On the same day as Biden’s inauguration, the European Parliament announced that Russia should be punished for arresting Navalny, by having the Nordstream 2 pipeline project closed down. Closing this pipeline down would open up the European market to buy US gas, instead of Russia. This is a complete coincidence.

And then, the day after Biden’s inauguration, the European Court of Human Rights announced they had found Russia guilty of war crimes during the 5-day war in South Ossetia in 2008. The report was subject to a gleeful (and terrible) write-up by (who else?) Luke Harding. Why they waited 13 years to make this announcement remains a mystery. It doesn’t stop there, already Western pundits and Russian “celebrities” are trying to encourage street protests in support of Alexei Navalny. An anonymous Guardian editorial states Navalny’s “bravery needs backing”, whatever that means. All of this could mean Biden is “forced” to “change his mind” and pull out of the re-signing of the anti-nuclear weapons treaty. Ooops. But are there bigger aims behind this as well? Do they hope they can create another Maidan … but this time in Moscow? That would be insane, but you can’t rule it out. One thing is for sure, though; they work fast. Less than two days in office, and we’ve already got a new colour revolution kicking off. Speedy work.
