There is something in the air for the last 10 years or so: liberal elites are trying to make a coup d'état. Still without success.
As for your media, yeah they're basically making a fuss over nothing.
It's been here for many years, the tiredness of corruption in general. That's why people come outside. There's one thing i can't understand... Why don't people fight back when the "cosmonauts" hit them? If a cosmonaut goes inside a mob to catch someone, he should return alone without helmet and baton in the best case.
There's fuss over a guy with foreign secret service support that is trying to stir up similar shit that happened all over ex-USSR already. To me it comes down to 3 things:
1) I'm against the current regime but supporting the forces that want to destroy my country over it is stupid.
2) Navalny is not trying to make change, he's trying to organize a coup. We've seen how it's done in other countries and what the consequences are so I'm going to pass. Not to mention that the result is always going to be way worse here.
3) I just dont like him as a person. Based on what he's done I dont think he's a very bright guy.
Why are you so worried about Russia?
Don't you have enough problems of your own?
Is it envy? or fear?
just fuss over nothing, they benefit from these shit protests
I do not understand...do people in Europe really believe such nonsense? why don't they have an opinion?!
Europe - wake up plz!
Where is your pride?
Where is your opinion?
Why did you sell all your valuables?
Can you stop being a vassal of the United States?
STOP THIS NONSENSE!
I am not Russian but here's my humble opinion:
Navalny is a western-backed opportunist and nationalist who is only presented as "fighting against a corrupt regime" in the media because his liberal views align with the western hegemony. Westernizing Russia to serve the interests of the neoliberal world order would certainly be a huge victory for USA, EU, NATO and global capitalism overall; not so much for the Russian working class.
This reminds me of the failed western-backed protests in Belarus, the oppositions real goal is to integrate Belarus into the EU and get rid of current labor laws (which are the strongest in any ex-USSR country) on the expense of the well being of the Belarusian working class, but it was painted as a fight for freedom in the media.
We shall only hope the Russians are smart enough to not get blinded by the false promises of liberalism, and protect their sovereignty.
And no, I don't support Putin or Lukashenko, both are disgusting capitalist rats who pillaged their countries after the undemocratic dissolution of the Soviet Union, but the fallacy of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" should be fought against: as long as the opposition is even worse than the already terrible leadership, they deserve no sympathy.
I follow to all situation attentively and can tell you that tensions are really serious. Even people who support Putin are afraid of a possible coup. After the investigation published by Navalny, Putin started to lose his supporters, even though I don't think the coup is possible because military and huge percent of Russians still support him. Overall, Navalny's last video went viral and he gained many new supporters and I think he is becoming very popular step by step. Most of people who you have talked here with are from the opposite side and I doubt they can tell a real situation because they are biased. I myself tried to describe the situation from my neutral side cause i speak russian and followed to the news.
Putin's mafia has a good grip of the country, so nothing's gonna happen there. If you really think about it, the last time russian people elected anyone was around a thousand years ago. I think the enormous size of the country is its bane preventing it from developing, a change is much easier when an active population can quickly get to the capital when the time comes, try doing it in Russia. So far the regime fights the protests by gathering forces from other regions into the capital in advance.
Russians should not be trapped in a bad life. With no money and putin as their god. They should be able to join our wealth and happiness. I hope all of the russian people grow confidence and help navaldi protest against corrupt and ruined russia.
