One of Putin's main mistakes was revealed in the events with the capture of the Capitol - the US press


During the capture of the Capitol by right-wing radicals and supporters of Donald Trump, many in Russia expressed support for American "dissenters" and blamed the United States for the double standards of their establishment, which loyally embraced the "Euromaidan" in Ukraine, and now condemns Washington-based freedom of speech fighters.


Does Putin understand that by tacitly expressing support for what is happening overseas, he can foment such sentiments in Russia? Politico writes about the mistake the Kremlin makes in this regard.

The Russian president is known for not accepting any kind of Western-inspired “color revolutions”. Now he sees that radicalized citizens can themselves, without outside influence, cause riots in the country.

According to the publication, the Kremlin has been "courting" Russian right-wing organizations for many years, adopting some of their views and thus formulating theses about "traditional Christian values" and rejection of LGBT ideology. Thus, the government seeks to enlist the support of the right in order to be able to control their actions.

However, the example of Ukraine shows that radicals can become a force capable of opposing the center. One of Putin's main mistakes lies in such flirting with the right and in the hope of their unwavering loyalty.

Moscow's gloating over what is happening in Washington is premature, as this could happen in Russia as well.

Like Trump, Putin tried to use their anger to his advantage. And like Trump, he barely controls the threat he helped unleash

- Politico believes.

    ... ... which is tacitly expressing support ....

    This is already paranoia, from the topic: "There is nothing worse than Putin's silence."

    Is the Russian Orthodox Church a right-wing organization? And then who are the Catholics - the left? They are against Lukashenka, so the left. And who are the other churches?

    Does Putin understand that by tacitly expressing support for what is happening overseas

    Support, by definition, is something tangible in one way or another, but how is it tacit?
    The Russian Federation has officially spoken out about the capture of the Capitol in the sense that this is an internal showdown of the ruling class of the United States and the Russian Federation before these showdowns do not matter.

    Now he sees that radicalized citizens can themselves, without outside influence, arrange riots in the country.

    The fraud in the US presidential elections is obvious to the whole world and Trump urged his supporters to oppose this, but he did not take into account one thing - the larger the crowd, the less controllable it is. And so it happened, the crowd got out of control and went to destroy.

    the example of Ukraine shows that radicals can become a force that can resist the center

    This is called a revolutionary situation and is described by five features formulated by V.I. Lenin many years ago.
    There is no gloating in Russia about the unrest in the United States.
    There is a faint hope that this will force the US ruling class to pay more attention to internal affairs and possibly weaken the pressure on the Russian Federation, China, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, including its closest vassal, the EU, and this cannot but please the whole world.

    He is generally silent on this topic.

    Putin is somehow sideways,

    Well, they can’t publicly admit that they themselves, only THEMSELVES have so abundantly "gotten ridiculous"! There must always be someone else to blame. And best of all, if "Putin's Russia" is appointed to blame

    We entered from afar.
    I can continue, did the US politicians understand, fueling "color revolutions" and instability around the world, that sooner or later it would come to them too ??
    Straight to the Capitol.

    PS I can imagine what kind of "support" the bulk and K received after breaking the template about the inviolability of the "city on the hill". lol

    citizens can themselves without outside influence

    Without outside influence, this does not at all mean that they themselves, it means that sponsors and customers are inside the country and pursue common goals for a part of the elites and the whole society, and not like ours, a liberoid herd of degenerates on the money of a foreign interventionist.

    Some kind of incomprehensible hysteria, despite the fact that Putin does not react at all. Are they lacking attention or what?

    Putin was right to be silent on this issue. What is happening now in the US is not a coincidence.

    Do you want, dear, for the fun of life?
    Recently, a colleague on a hobby forum on a nearby branch, 48, left his wife-kids, "dumped" in the USA. Green Card, a language at the level of mine-yours, works, as he was, as a car mechanic, at a company to restore broken cars. The owner is a native of St. Petersburg.
