    Did the US Embassy in Moscow encourage Russians to participate in pro-Navalny protests banned by the government? This is indeed the case, according to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    On Saturday January 23 the ministry denounced “a flagrant interference” reported French website 20 minutes. On its website, the American diplomacy has indeed indicated the times and places of the unauthorized gatherings, which were planned in several cities of the country, in a publication which called on American nationals not to go there.

    “What was it about, influencing or giving instructions [to the demonstrators, editor’s note]?” the spokesperson Maria Zakharova remarked on Facebook. “The American colleagues will have to come and explain themselves on Smolenskaya Square [the address of the Russian ministry],” she added, because this message was clearly intended to encourage the demonstrators. Moreover, she noted that if the Russian embassy in Washington had acted in this way, it would have resulted in “threats of sanctions and expulsions of Russian diplomats”. For the time being, American diplomats have not reacted to the controversy.

    During these demonstrations in support for Alexei Navalny, imprisoned since his return to Russia on January 17, more than a 1 000 people have been arrested by the police. The team of the anti-corruption activist, alleged victim of “poisoning” had published calls for a rally in 65 Russian cities.

    It has now also emerged that a video against president Putin allegedly produced by Navalny, was in fact made with the help of leftist German media lobbyists from Correctiv, as reported the Säschsische Zeitung. This is somewhat problematic: Correctiv is funded by the German Federal Government, the State of North Rhine-Westphalia as well as leading German mainstream media and the Open Society Foundation.

    Just two days after Alexei Navalny’s return to Russia and his arrest, his team released a video entitled “A Palace for Putin”. It is about a supposedly super-expensive secret palace of Putin.

    In Russia, George Soros had supported an entire network of left-wing NGOs with his OSF until they were banned in 2015 . Navalny, who is courted as the “leader of the opposition” in Western media, has been working with OSF since 2011, according to revelations by SorosLeaks, with the aim of bringing together “actors and alliances of civil society, a leaked OSF document revealed.

    Navalny works closely with the exiled Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who has been friends with Soros since at least 2003 and who has built his “Open Russia Foundation” based on the model of the Soros network. From London, Chordorkovsky runs the “Investigative Portal” Dossier Center, the only source for the Spiegel cover story “Putin’s Puppets” about the AfD’s alleged Kremlin connections. German public broadcaster ARD and Spiegel are perfectly happy to publish “research” from Russia in cooperation with the Soros-related media lobbyists Bellingcat and the biased Dossier Center.
