I haven't really been following Russian politics, but I just came across something amazing.
So Putin's main opposition, a guy called Navalny, got poisoned a while ago, but was lucky enough to live. Some journalists did some good research, and pretty much figured out who did it. So the opposition guy pretends to be from the Kremlin, phones up one of the operatives, and interviews the operative about the operation. And then puts it on youtube (including english subtitles)! youtube.com/watch?v=ibqiet6Bg3

> So Putin's main opposition, a guy called Navalny

It is only in mass media. It is most likely that Navalny is Yeltsin's illegitimate son:

(top left - Navalny's brother. top right - Navalny's legal father. bottom left - Navalny. bottom right - young Yeltsin)


This practice is formally called "Bonapartism" and has long been practised everywhere in Western colonies as it has shown to be effective.

Navalny's wife's father is a high-ranking KGB agent working in London, is in charge of russian exports. They come from the Romanoff-period aristocratic dynasty, Abrosimoff.


Navalny is being actively promoted by the German colonial administration as Putin's successor ("opposition" successor) to legitimise the results of privatisation. The whole media epic with the poisonings and prison sentences is a PR action to make a great martyr out of him. If someone doesn't please the KGB, he dies. See Litvinenko, Politkovskaya etc. Even the British patronage did not help Litvinenko

...

On top of that, Navalny is a nationalist - that's something his advertisers are careful not to mention. He started out as an activist in the Movement against Illegal Immigration. In this early video, he compares the Caucasian separatists to flies and cockroaches and suggests legalising weapons to shoot them down:

Such an "opposition hero" is promoted by the Liberal and Western mass media.

I've reflected on this since, and yes, western media rarely talks about his policies. I think what we like is the idea of real political opposition to Putin. If Russians really like Putin, that's their choice - but from a distance it looks like there isn't really a choice. The fact that the government arrested Navalny for being in a hospital in DE is a good example. The argument that it can't have been the KGB because the KGB would have killed him I don't find very convincing.

Yes, that's clear. The West increasingly needs a "change of power" in this resource colony, to consolidate the results of perestroika-privatisation, which has benefited Western consumers.

>  If Russians really like Putin, that's their choice

This is how manipulation by dual logic works. Yeltsin's alleged illegitimate son (who was educated at Yale in a department that trains leaders of "colour revolutions") is declared as the opposition to Putin. As a result, if someone criticises him, he is logically declared a supporter of Putin. But both of these political leaders represent the interests of the Western colonial administration. Most so-called Russians, don't like either one, they tend to try to distance themselves from this spectacle.

I'll show you by way of example that it's all a media show:

Two years ago the entire civilised world learned that Putin was a Stasi agent:
https://www.dw.com/en/putins-stasi-identity-card-discovered-in-german-archives/a-46692271
This information was not published in Russian. But the British immediately translated it into many languages, even Serbian and Ukrainian:
https://www.bbc.com/serbian/cyr/svet-46536172
https://www.bbc.com/ukrainian/news-46536442
Except in Russian - i checked. And so earlier this year, when the active phase of Navalny's promotion began - this information was published in Russian for a wider audience (not only empowered media consumers)

Most people in the Russian Federation are well aware that this farce is planned and directed by a Western colonial administration. They are also well aware that current Putin's government is working in the interests of Western capital. What the Westerns calls "support for Putin's by Russians" is merely an unwillingness to fall into yet another Western cryptocolonial trap of "revolution-perestroika-privatisation-etc". In the Russian Federation Putin is supported by a minority close to the "trough" (the privileged state employees and their relatives), the majority just do not want to see the next phase of Western-initiated looting come about.

> The argument that it can't have been the KGB because the KGB would have killed him I don't find very convincing.

You misunderstood what was wrote. The argument is that Navalny's wife's father is a high-ranking KGB officer. Navalny represents KGB interests - that is why the KGB did not kill him. The KGB assists him in this show, creating the image of a "martyr" to legitimise the subsequent anti-constitutional seizure of power (to consolidate the results of privatisation).
