Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Influential Russian senator Klimov accuses foreign spooks of helping to organize weekend protests in support of Navalny”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Speaking to TV channel Russia 1 on Sunday, Klimov also noted that foreign social networks were used to promote the demonstrations. The politician is the head of the Senate's temporary commission on preventing interference in Russia's internal affairs, and he regularly comments on matters of alleged foreign meddling in the country's politics.
“The Senatorial Commission has reason to believe that all these activities are clearly traced to the actions of foreign states, and it is all happening with the assistance of foreign specialists,” he told the broadcaster.
Klimov also spoke to news agency RIA Novosti, claiming that the commission has “reliable data” to back up his assertion.
“Plans were implemented that were made far outside the borders of Russia,” the senator said. “An agenda is being imposed on us that is alien to the fundamental interests of the Russian people.”
In particular, Klimov pointed to the appearance of young children at the nationwide demonstrations as a significant issue, supporting proposals to toughen criminal responsibility for involving minors.
The US government describing the pro-Alexey Navalny protestors in Russia on Saturday as its “allies,” displayed questionable judgment, at best.Imagine the US media reaction if Putin had said the Washington 'Capitol' rioters were Russia's allies, to get some idea of why. https://t.co/27Lf6c0uks— Bryan MacDonald (@27khv) January 25, 2021
