"The medals must already be handed out at the headquarters of Russian intelligence" - American expert on the US elections

A few hours before the opening of polling stations on the day of the US presidential election, the Russian media circulated an interview with the head of the SVR Sergei Naryshkin. The head of the department that facilitated Russia's interference in the US elections in 2016, barely holding back a smile, made a gloomy prediction about the future of our country, writes Time magazine from the United States.

Naryshkin said that the social crisis in the United States will worsen. It doesn't matter who wins the election, Joe Biden or Donald Trump. The losing side will not accept the loss and this will spur the radicals out into the streets.

There will be a large base for protesting the whole system. This disease, this disease of American society and state will remain

- added Naryshkin.

His words are more meaningful than mere speculation. It looks like a statement of intent. In 2016, the Russians, helping Trump to be elected, aimed to undermine public confidence in the democratic system in the United States. In 2020, Trump himself began to do things that lead to a similar result.

On November 4, 2020, Trump declared himself the winner and demanded that the counting be stopped. The next day, he described the electoral system as flawed and corrupt. Even his party members were outraged by this behavior. Senator Mitt Romney said Trump's actions "are detrimental to the cause of freedom here and around the world."

This is what worries American experts who are specialists in Russia.

Russians now sit and think that they could not even dream of such a thing. Russian intelligence headquarters must already be awarding medals

- said Mark Polymeropoulos.

The joy of the Russians will probably be short-lived. Joe Biden promised that if he wins, he will make all foreign players who tried to interfere in the elections to pay a very high price. At the same time, earlier American officials have already reported that Moscow also interfered in the 2020 elections. Therefore, the Kremlin is most likely concerned about a possible response from Washington.

Oftentimes, Russians plan operations to be noticed. Moscow leaves its fingerprints everywhere on its own

Says Matthew Schmidt of the University of New Haven in Connecticut.

He is confident that by such actions Russia wants to show the weakness of the American system and the possibility of remote control. The main thing is to build confidence in the Americans that the election results may be false.

Russia is scared by the quality of our alliances and, even in the current circumstances, by the quality of our democratic institutions. She is determined to devalue them, and for this purpose she uses her special services

- said the former head of the British intelligence service MI6 Alex Younger.

In his opinion, Russia is drawing attention to its ability to influence the results of elections in the West precisely in order to discredit them.

Therefore, while President Trump makes his loud statements, they can sit in Moscow and enjoy the spectacle, the American publication summed up.

    And if Naryshkin's words about the radicals do not come true, will he resign?
    Or, on the contrary, he will laugh at the terpils who can sell anything they want?

    Right now, and so there someone is running around, black, white ... Well, he does not predict here a kapets and a buck to 30 rubles, but even 60 does not fall?

      The dollar does not fall, because it is not allowed to fall. As long as the dollar is a means of world settlements, no one will let it fall, including Russian banks. It is very good to have a hard ruble, but by default it should be cheaper than the world currency (no matter who changes the dollar later) somewhere by 30-40%. This is an axiom of the economy. Domestic production goes for rubles, raw materials are mined for rubles, and sold for green (now) which by default and without any markups gives the economy a profit for that amount of percent for how much cheaper is the ruble. This is, so to speak, the economy on the fingers and without buzzwords.

      Why do you need "bucks" at 30? An expensive dollar is an additional replenishment of the budget, and who will voluntarily refuse it? Stop grabbing him and he won't be 75.))) I don't care how much he costs.

    Well, the American "partners" and the past "Russian interference in the elections" have not been proven! No matter how hard the specially appointed commissioners of the US Congress tried (at the same time, diligently NOT noticing the open Ukrainian interference of the "Maidan authorities" in the American elections on the side of the Democratic Party, against the then Republican candidate D. Trump and his campaign headquarters!) fingerprints everywhere "could not find and show! request
    That is, in simple Urkagan language, all such past anti-Russian "presentations" turned out to be unfounded and a place for such American "schmidts" was only in a golim "rooster", "on a parachute"! negative
    Exactly the same, shitty, price for the current unsubstantiated "fictions" and partisan fantasies, new "old stories" of American (and British) Goebbelsuchs about allegedly "Russian intervention", "medals", "fright" and "fingerprints"! fool
    Self-righteous and stupid naglo-Saxons (this is necessary, such a feeble-minded person as Younger was in charge of the British SIS, is it really all the "Jamesbonds" there, and he is also the "smartest" of all ??! what ), apparently, they really hold the "world community" for headless idiots ?! wassat

    An amazing thing is Russophobia: at least a little bit on your head, but its carriers still repeat their fabrications, for example, about helping Trump become president (not a single fact), about conducting operations to destabilize the United States, about Russia's fear of the quality of alliances and democratic institutions. Haha !!!

Both your parties, this is one continuous Communist Party)))) Democratic values ​​in the American way, the biggest SCAM, of the 20th century, a tool for overthrowing objectionable governments and democratic bombing!
