The storming of the Capitol by the demonstrators called the success of Russia


The recent storming of the US Capitol by protesters is a triumph for Russia. This conclusion can be drawn from a text by Scott Rosenberg posted on the Axios news site (registered in Arlington County, near Washington).


The author believes that the path to the destruction of the Capitol by Trump supporters began four years ago with the theft by Russia of emails from the Democratic Party. The Russian Federation, in his opinion, "seeks to undermine democracy in the United States, and the riots this week are another sign of its success."

Be smart: The people who invaded Congress on Wednesday to stop the attestation of the US presidential election did not receive money from the Kremlin or act on Putin's orders. But their actions - as well as the actions of the president, who fueled his anger with lies - were perfectly in line with Russia's goals when it attacked political US system in 2016

- says Rosenberg.

The short-term goal, he said, was to help elect Donald Trump, whom the Kremlin saw as "a force of chaos and destruction." The long-term goal was to create strong distrust among Americans about their own choices.

As a result, tens of millions of people have sprung up in the United States who now believe, without any evidence, and contrary to the decisions of dozens of local and federal courts, that Joe Biden stole the White House from Trump.

The United States did not begin to regard the 2016 attack as a declaration of cyber war, the journalist continues, although this was exactly it - war. Trump viewed investigations into "Russian disinformation" as attempts to undermine the legitimacy of his victory. This made America vulnerable, and today it is paying the price.

Referring to recent events, the expert recalls that "with the help of hacking, Russian cyber-saboteurs gained access to a number of US government and corporate networks, the exact number of which is unknown to this day." But the invasion of the Capitol clearly demonstrates that "Putin no longer needs to send his hackers to steal Nancy Pelosi's email." The rebels waving the Trump flags are now ready to do the job.

Mr. Rosenberg writes that "the work to undermine the credibility of the American system, which began with clandestine cyber operations, is now being carried out openly on social networks and in the right-wing media."

Restoring trust takes more time than breaking it. Documenting Russia's past atrocities and completing [...] investigations into Trump's ties to Moscow will be an important part of strengthening American faith in their system.

- sums up the journalist.

      This one does not know, others say that they know (probably supporters of the Democrats), they write all this is Trump's mafia and he is their "chairman of the Revolutionary Military Council", they also say that Twitter was turned off for him, because he planned a second "storming of the Winter Palace" on the 17th. laughing

    When will this cesspool of the planet, under a dirty mattress-colored cloth, be washed into the ocean? People in this poisoned territory cannot live. Only the descendants of thieves, murderers and swindlers, i.e. exactly the same and, thieves, murderers and crooks.

    God, what idios they are.
    This garbage dump has been accumulating in the country for decades and the authorities did not want to do anything about it.
    And as it broke a little, it is not the party clans in power that are to blame, but, as always, the Russians.

    tens of millions of people who now believe without any proof

    So, stop !!! Is there any evidence of the nonsense he wrote? Highly likes won't fail. And reinforced concrete proofs, such as - from an unnamed source or a reliable source told us, but we cannot name the name, since we will put his life at risk)))
    And what are they doing there, in a democratic paradise? Maybe they didn't have enough lace panties too? Well, let them borrow from the Ukrainians, they have just worn out to lace)))

    The capitol was not set on fire, the hundred were not organized, the cookies were not distributed. Sluggishly somehow, not interesting. The lizard put some kind of leg on the table, so this is the business card of the Americans. That would have taken in a drawer of the table Pelosi piled vitamins, that would have been a number. Yes, I posted the whole process on Twitter. And what, a free country.

      If Palosi had piled vitamins into a drawer, this would be a number. Yes, I posted the whole process on Twitter.

      Your Honor, when you were young with Rzhevsky, you did not have the honor to serve in the same regiment? Do you know the hussar style of behavior, the train of thought is damn similar laughing

    work to undermine confidence in the American system, which began with clandestine cyber operations, is now being carried out openly on social media and in the right-wing media

    Yes, it is and will be. We are not alone in doing this.
