Wouldn’t There be any Russian Spring with Navalny in the Kremlin?

One only wonders whether there would be any Russia at all?

In Ukraine, the local nationalist crowd seem to hate Alexey Navalny and think that he would be just like Putin. A video that has surfaced from recent protests in support of Navalny, which also took place in front of the Russian embassy in Kiev, which shows a confrontation between a Russian speaking individual, who says that “The sooner Putin is removed, the sooner Crimea will return back to Ukraine.” To which the nationalists say that Navalny is no different from Putin to put in decent terms…

I restrict age on my videos due to violence and vulgarities…

The fist gentleman represents the globalist point of view on Russia. To them any Russia that acts independently of the West is a problem. And they prefer a manageable Russia, preferably carved up into small manageable pieces. Carve it up like Africa and create new nations in Cossackia, Siberia, Moskovia etc. with new mickey mouse identities a la Ukraine and Belarus, that will be too weak and prone to outside influence, where the West could control the regimes, and if need be support friendly regimes militarily to quell any resistance. NATO countries like my own have a lot of experience in chasing a variety of savages in exotic lands. The Czech troops are currently stationed in Afghanistan and Mali for instance. And I have met Czech soldiers in Jordan rather recently.

Maybe I am exaggerating but I think it was Brzezinski, who said something along these lines. And I hear from other sources invested in influencing countries in the Former Soviet Union that this belief may not be all that uncommon. The wish for an absolutely compliant regime in the Kremlin is definitely there. The idea that the Russians act wrongly and they need to be punished for their actions is certainly almost ubiquitous in Western political circles.

One of glaring transgressions of Putin against the West was the annexation of Crimea in Spring 2014. In 2014, following an unconstitutional overthrow of power in Kiev, the Kremlin found the guts to take a Russian majority peninsula that hitherto belonged to Ukraine under its protection thus saving the people from political repression and forcible Ukrainisation. And also saving Russia from the humiliation of having to vacate their naval base. And the question is, would president Navalny do the same?

If we look back to an interview Navalny did with Ksenia Sobchak, he made his point on Crimea clear. He said that the referendum in 2014 was faked and that it would need to be repeated. To which Ksenia answered that what is the point of even suggesting a referendum with international observers when the West will not accept in anyway? Navalny also called for sanctions against Russian officials on the pages of the New York Times. (hat tip Anatoly Karlin) Navalny is basically a puppet, who is completely afraid of saying anything that could anger his Western handlers, and even if we assume that he does not have Western handlers, which is hard to do with every Western politician coming out in his support, he is surrounded by people, who are definitely in the pockets of Western interests. But we can of course give him the benefit of a doubt and assume that he will become a Russian patriot upon becoming a president. How then will he be different from Putin? Does Russia need Navalny?

Lybov Sobol’s Husband and Brother are Ukrnazi and Maidan Supporters

Almost everyday I find yet another Ukraine link in the non-system opposition in Russia. This time at the very heart of the action. See my other recent posts, about Ruslan Shavetdinnov, Ilya Novikov, Kirill Naumov, and Vladimir Shipitsyn

Apart from Ruslan Shavetdinnov, whose case has been widely reported by the likes of the Washington funded RFE/RL, the rest of the individuals I have covered are low level activists really. This time, I discovered the brother and husband of Lyubov Sobol, the Moscow resident activist, and close Navalny comrade.

The information is now relatively dated, it actually comes from 2016 but it has resurfaced recently, and it is worth reposing here because it adds to the series I was running.

It turns out, the brother of Lyubov Sobol, Grigory Musatov took active part in the Euromaidan.

A rare sight, the Hrushevsky street is without Molotow cocktails. What a mess!

Her husband, Sergey Mokhov is not far off:

Another Out-of-the-closet Banderophile From the Russian Opposition Discovered

My friend sent me the following screenshot. Looks like many Russian liberals openly embrace Stepan Bandera, and the regime in Ukraine. After Ruslan Shaveddinov and Ilya Novikov, here comes Kirill Naumov.

Kirill Naumov: Volunteer of the Navalny Team, European, Orthodox Russian Nationalist, Democrat and Banderovite

There is another, even more curios text on his photo, it says in Ukrainian: “Hands off from volunteers and soldiers.” It is likely one of those campaigns that seeks impunity for Ukrainian myrmidons that fought in the East of the country. You see, many of them have PTSD and other psychological problems, and they get caught for serious crimes like robberies and murder. There exists a group of people that thinks this constitute a campaign of persecution against patriotic defenders of the motherland.

I understand some Ukrainian villager from Lvov or Cherkasy may feel strongly about this but that a Russian would put this into his profile picture suggests mental illness.

Here is the fool’s Facebook profile

Ruslan Shaveddinov is a Pro-Banderovite Piece of Shit

As you probably may have heard, an ally of Alexey Navalny, Ruslan Shaveddinov, was grabbed by the military, accused of dodging the draft, and sent over to Novaya Zemlya, an island in the Arctic to do his service…

And here is why I don’t give a fuck. Ruslan is a supporter of violent neonazis in Ukraine…

I have found his tweets:

In the wake of Russian intervention in Crimea, the Russian pro-Western opposition organised a confused and cringy protest in support of the nationalist regime in Kiev.

Nobody will come they said, the Russians support Novorossiya, they said.

In fact only marginals in Moscow supported the Kiev regime…

I met @pel13132 (a photographer for liberal media), Glory to Ukraine!

“Glory to Ukraine!” is a nazi slogan. I have covered this here before.

I don’t walk around the House of the Unions without a [Molotow] cocktail.
Shaveddinov is making jokes about the tragedy of 2 May 2014, when banderovite yobs literally burned alive people in Odessa.

Nemirovskaya: Go fuck yourself with your mourning for vatniks, that’s not a murder, that is natural selection, they shouldn’t have gone fighting from Pskov. Ruslan: Nemirovskaya is right.

Polina Nemirovskaya, who works for Khodorkovsky’s Open Russia, say’s one ought not to mourn the people that burned alive in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa because these “vatniks” (a mocking term for pro-Russian, and pro-Putin people) weren’t actually from Odessa, which is not true.

There aren’t any Odessites among the supporters of the Odessa People’s Republic.

Ruslan made this Tweet on the day of the tragedy of 2 May simply regurgitating Ukrainian nazi propaganda. Also note that the protests in Odessa did not carry a separatist message, so Odessa People’s Republic was not on the agenda.

Udaltsov: Banderovite scum are burning people in Odessa. They need to pay for that. Ruslan: Go fuck yourself.

Leftist activist,Sergey Udaltsov told to go fuck himself by Ruslan.

Comandante Yarosh, RT @euromaidan, Yarosh with the fighters of the battalion Donbass.

“Donbass” was one of the nazi militias that went to suppress the aspirations of the Donbass people.

Was McCain a president, we would not celebrate a message on the website, we would celebrate tanks in Moscow.

I guess they celebrated the victory of the Maidan in Kiev, given the date.

Egor Zhukov’s Attorney says he Will Donate Money Collected for Egor’s Defense to The Ukrainian Armed Forces

For those who don’t know, Egor Zhukov is Moscow antigovernment activist of some internet fame. He was recently given a suspended three year sentence for inciting extremism…

Egor Zhukov

Egor’s attorney, Ilya Novikov says he will donate the money collected for Egor’s defense to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As always it isn’t worth my time to translate the entire drivel, so here comes the important stuff:

Everything that [Egor] says about the effectiveness of nonviolence is generally alright and there isn’t of course any extremism in that. And his words about love and responsibility are very sincere, and I like them very much. However, unlike Egor I believe in the effectiveness of violence. And I know, that for some to peacefully protest in 198 ways of Gene Sharp, and not end up in the van with broken ribs after each protest, it is good for some who are ready to shoot and be shot to be near by. And if they are not near, one pays with further broken ribs and heads of peaceful protesters, and even complete passerbys.

Therefore, the money I received for the defense of Egor I will transfer to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And a further 99,999₽ from me personally because on the 6 December, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a holiday. And you too can join, the line of defense is not just in court.
