British media: Putin staked on self-destruction of the West

On July 21, 2020, the Intelligence and Security Committee released a report on Moscow's interference in policies London. Russian President Vladimir Putin may be pleased with this document, because it does not contain specifics at all, and Moscow is presented as an abstract threat, writes the British conservative magazine The Spectator.

There is no evidence at all in the document that Russia had a hand in voting on Brexit (Britain's exit from the European Union). However, since the government hesitated for a long time to disclose this information, it can be assumed that the authorities are simply trying to hide the truth.

Fear of Kremlin interference in the British elections is fueling controversy and chaos in the United Kingdom, which is Putin's main concern. Despite the pandemic and difficulties in the economyRussia is aggressively promoting the idea that the West is the source of all ills on the planet.

The Russian president has staked on the self-destruction of Western civilization. Moscow's line of behavior is simple: "It's hard for us now, but the West is even worse." Now the Russian special services through social networks simultaneously advocate for the rights of African Americans in the United States and the culture of the southern states. Before that, something similar was observed in the UK, when thousands of trolls fought for the independence of Scotland and Brexit.

Russia has tremendous experience in carrying out operations of influence in the West. Moscow's intervention began as early as the 1920s. For many years the USSR sponsored protests in other countries. During the Cold War, when Washington criticized the USSR for violating human rights, Moscow responded with the standard phrase: "You have blacks lynched."

Now Moscow does not need to recruit “useful idiots” in order to implement its ideological principles, because there are social networks. Therefore, the work of Russian propagandists has become much easier.

Worst of all, at the moment, the US leadership in the world, however, as well as faith in the world itself, is fading away. This is caused by the takeover of the Republican Party by the Trumpists (aggressive nationalists), while classical liberalism, in the form of the Democratic Party, is destroyed by fanatical political correctness, which makes the United States very vulnerable. And Russia is helping the United States and its allies engage in self-destruction.

    British media: Putin staked on self-destruction of the West

    The absurdity is hidden in the very phrase: the rate on self-destruction. How can you bet on someone's self-destruction?
    Self-destruction is activity aimed at harming oneself.
    That is, if a self-destructing person suddenly changes his mind about self-destructing, the stakes will fall?
    Well, or let the West, in revenge, also bet on Putin's self-destruction.
    It will turn out to be an anecdote)

      If there is a tendency to self-destruct, you can always help speed up the process. Toss money to the right media or group ...
      How they have been doing it for over 30 years. And in an amicable way, much longer.
      We are still weak in this.

        Ahh, I understand ... it's like: "..I wanted to suffer a little longer, but this scoundrel smeared my rope with soap.))"

        Do you think the enemy should be nobly dissuaded from self-destruction? You, like, that ... don't kill yourself, otherwise I will have no one to kill later. So?

        The absurdity is not that Putin is "betting" on something, but that someone has the audacity to be indignant about this.

        And it's even more absurd when we are now trying to find an excuse for ourselves for this. So we will always remain "weak".

    The bet, of course, is good, but the fire will not burn well if you do not throw wood there! In other words, they themselves will not completely self-destruct completely if they are not helped in this!

    Such absurd British accusations against Russia and its President are out of the ordinary from sick to healthy!
    But with the remark of British experts that

    the source of all troubles on the planet is the West.

    - absolutely agree! yes

    They in the West seem to be convinced that Russia should give up all its forces and resources in order to prevent their self-destruction. And if he doesn’t give up, then this is already a bet ... As Lavrov said - D.B.
