Western media predicted the outcome of the protests in Russia


Russia is now not threatened with a revolution, despite the protests and discontent with the power of many Russians, writes the British newspaper The Times.


The Kremlin still has many trump cards. There are no cracks in the power block (army, special services and OVD). The statistics of protest actions are not critical. There is no parliamentary opposition in Russia. The influence from the West is too weak to influence high-ranking officials and oligarchs.

Billionaires like Arkady Rotenberg do not worry about their assets in the West, so Russian President Vladimir Putin feels very confident. Rothenberg recently announced that he is the owner of the "Putin's palace" in Gelendzhik, covering his old friend, says the author of the publication, Tom Parfitt.

Putin does not care at all about condemnation in the West. However, in the long term, the Kremlin may face problems. According to polls, 42% of people who took part in the protests in January 2021 came to such events for the first time. A January 446 poll of 31 protesters in St. Petersburg found that 76% were under 35 and almost 40% were under 25. This suggests that more than a third of those who protested have lived most of their lives under Putin, who has been in power since 2000.

Without a doubt, the future fate of Russia will be decided by the silent majority, which until recently was convinced that there was no alternative to Putin. The Kremlin managed to neutralize Alexei Navalny for a while, preventing him from participating in the elections and pretending that there was no opponent. But now Navalny is part of the mainstream. In this figure, Russians may begin to see a viable replacement for the 68-year-old Putin. Change is not around the corner. But, unambiguously, they are in the future, sums up the Western media, trying to predict the outcome of the protests in Russia.

    Interestingly, what does Mr. Biden think at 78 years old? Will he wait until this hour without regaining consciousness?

    The stump is clear, does not threaten.
    Since the substitution of concepts.
    A revolution is a change of order.
    And changing Yushchenko to Zelensky is a coup.

    As a Russian, it would be cruel and insulting to me to see the triumph of the Amero-Zapadokholuiskiy "maydaunizm" in Russia!
    Didn't our Ukrainian "Maidan" coups of 2004 and 2014, inspired by the USA and its satellites, teach Russians anything ?!
    After all, when viewed from the side, "your" this "not poisoned" Sishai is almost one to one similar, the same "not poisoned" and hypocritical, "orange" zapadoid Dioxin-2004.
    Even the Berlin "Charite", one and the same, "kissed" the Ukrainian and Russian "Maidan technologies"!
    And all the same unsubstantiated, unfounded accusations of the collective West (and the "analyzes of Navalny's poison" will not be saved for verification in the same way, as the "analyzes of the poison" of Yushchenko, the Americans had to "poison" this farmer's "creature" with banal dioxin , because then they had not thought of using the "super-deadly" quasi "Russian" OV "newbie" ?! winked )! request

    I like how they operate with percentages, it's just some kind of fairy tale! 42%! 76%! It’s just awful cocoa! You’ll start to read III, oops! Terrible percentage of the percentage of protesters, which is below the level
    statistical error. Curtain. Spit and forget.
    PS: And the people hawala! Not only them, but ours too. And after all, people are far from being stupid.

    I have not read such nonsense yet. Bulk is no one to call him.

    Something some kind of "neponyatki" -Russia is shaking from some sort of Navalninsky Sabbath, commensurate with a coup d'etat, and for some reason this is incriminated to Nikolai Platoshkin.

    That's right, the youngsters got drunk. When the merry Yeltsin years fell on their adult life, perhaps they could compare. They do not remember how the country got out of the swamp and debts. And they are not interested. Crisis, sanctions, epidemic - I don’t want to know. Take it out and put it down, so that it was cool for me like they show on the Internet in the west. And if you don't go to protest, Putin's slave also suffered.

      merry Yeltsin years ...
      the country was getting out of the swamp and debt.

      As recently as February 1, the current chairman and the company widely celebrated the 90th anniversary of their predecessor, the direct author of those cheerful years and that "swamp". And if the hero of the day, therefore, and the "saints of the 90th", his successor planted the memorial complex, then in that "swamp" they were really fun.
      In contrast to the overwhelming population of the entire former USSR.

    I'm very tired of this fake fighter. Everything that surrounds him is some kind of eternal scandal and mess. I admit that Putin is not perfect, but why is this cute, empty creature speaking in templates offered to me as an alternative to him?
