Opposition protests in Belarus and Russia end quickly

Opposition protests in Belarus and Russia end quickly

Sunday, 26 March 2017

Two simultaneous protests were ‘scheduled’ in both Belarus and Russia by opposition activists with open ties to Soros and USAid. The groups in both countries claimed they were protesting Government corruption. It was a mere accident, according to them that the protests in both countries were scheduled for the same weekend.

In Belarus’ capital of Minsk, the police appear to have much less tolerance for Soros activists than their counterparts in Moscow.

Minsk police roughed up and detained protesters who appeared agressive, while the other few dozen were allowed to march for few minutes before they too were dispersed.

In Russia, the protest was scheduled by opposition figure Alex Navalny who days before showed a photoshoped picture of the ‘Motherland’ statue in Volgograd, a revered statue among Russians where the biggest battle in WW2 took place. Navalny taking a page from Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” and Soros&USAid ‘colored revolutions’, painted the statue via photoshop with green paint, insulting 99.9% of Russia in the process.

Navalny’s “act of bravery” received a major press coverage among the liberal US Media.

Navalny did not stage the protest against Putin as many expected (this would be political suicide), but instead focused on Dmitry Medvedev, alleging he had mansions, duck farms (seriously?), yachts and vineyards.

According to reports, there are protests (in the 400-2,000 range) currently being held in Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Khabarovsk, and Vladivostok.

On his way to the protest, Navalny was arrested by police. He did not obtain permission from Moscow’s mayor to hold the protest in the downtown area.

Here is ABC:

Demonstrations in Moscow and St. Petersburg have a much larger turnout:

Russian protesters denouncing government corruption have gathered in cities across Russia and some have scuffled with police.

The Sunday protests appear to be one of the largest coordinated outpourings of dissatisfaction since the massive 2011-12 demonstrations following a fraud-tainted parliamentary election.

The demonstrations are driven by opposition leader Alexei Navalny and focus on his recent claims that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has amassed a collection of mansions, yachts and vineyards.

In the Pacific coast port city of Vladivostok, police forcefully detained some demonstrators near the city’s railway terminal, in one case falling down a small grassy slope as they wrestled with a detainee.

Oh no — not a small grassy slope. You hate to see that.
