The “orange revolution” in Ukraine in autumn 2004 became a model of resistance to rigged elections in autocratic regimes. A large part of the revolts were defeated, however, Russian President Vladimir Putin has developed a craze of “color revolutions”, which he is convinced, is arranged US. Now the Russian leader is trying to stir up numerous protests in the USA against the background of presidential elections, writes The Washington Post.
Observer publishing Jackson Diehl notes that it is in this context, it is necessary to consider Russia’s interference in the US elections. “Putin is trying to give us political elite, what he thinks of her own medicine: to kindle using, unconscious or conscious, of Donald trump’s “color revolution” in the United States,” says the journalist, quoted by InoPressa.
DIL describes an approximate scheme in which occurred most of the “color revolutions”: in the course of protests against entrenched elites were an external political movement; it conducted its own exit polls and published via the foreign media results, proving that the elections were rigged and urged his supporters to take to the streets.
According to the journalist, the first step of the campaign Putin was hacking hacking computers of the national Committee of the Democratic party and distribution of materials, suggesting that the former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton engaged in fraud. The tramp played her role, accusing the opponent of “corruption”. Then there were suggestions that the voting system can be hacked. Traffic trump to “Stop stealing” plans to conduct its own exit polls, said the author.
“A revolution?” – asks the journalist. Putin understands that Washington is not Kiev, but the uprising can occur online: imagine a storm of Internet posts with the support of paid Kremlin trolls, in which it has been suggested that the “political establishment” “stole the election” in favor of Clinton, as it is called trump, the deal continues.
“This will not prevent Clinton to take up his post not more than the protests on Bolotnaya square in Moscow prevented Putin’s inauguration in may 2012. But Clinton will begin his term after suffering political damage within the country and abroad. Putin will seek retribution. And trump will reveal itself extremely useful idiot” – summarizes the author.
