If I were a betting man (I do actually like to gamble from time to time), I’d feel extremely comfortable placing a decent amount of cash on the wager that what we’ve seen in the East during the last day has George Soros’ greasy Jewish fingerprints smeared all over.
I make this assertion because Russia has been, and remains, one of the nations that has most often stood up to the crazed Communist parasite/economist, and we’ve already witnessed retaliatory measures unleashed in neighboring Ukraine earlier this decade with the whole Maidan saga.
And if any of you remember that far back, you’ll understand my concern with these currently-innocuous happenings (they’re whining about “government corruption” at the moment), as Ukraine also started out relatively slow before progressing into virtual anarchy and revolution.
Around 500 people have been detained in central Moscow during an unsanctioned rally, with opposition figure Aleksey Navalny among them. More rallies, some unsanctioned and others permitted by local authorities, took place all across Russia.
Police detained around 500 people in the city center on Sunday, Moscow police said in a statement. The detentions were made “during an unsanctioned public event,” they said, adding that those detained have been delivered to local police stations for further administrative procedures.
For the Moscow demonstration, around 8,000 people took to the streets, according to police. As the rally continued, police used loudspeakers to call on the protesters to disperse.
Protesters came despite failing to receive permission from the mayor’s office to hold a rally at the site of their choosing. The authorities suggested two alternative locations for the event, but the organizers rejected them.
Navalny was detained shortly after showing up for the event in the center of the Russian capital. He was charged with violating an administrative code regulating public gatherings and is facing a fine, community service, or administrative detention, TASS reports, citing police.
A police officer was injured in central Moscow, Russian news agencies report, citing police. He was hit in the head by one of the rally participants, authorities said, adding that the officer was hospitalized with a brain injury.
A video has emerged online showing a riot police officer lying on the ground, seemingly unconscious.A man with a gun was among those detained at the rally.
Interesting to note as well that similar demonstrations have erupted in the nation of Belarus as well – all seemingly bankrolled and coordinated in a manner that we here in the States have learned to associate with Leftist terrorist groups like BLM and Antifa.
What will come of this remains to be seen, but perhaps some of our Slavic readers could help to fill in the details of what is transpiring, and get us all on the same page.
