In the Soviet Russia (both old as well as the new kind) internal affairs are tightly intertwined with foreign affairs. We may say that the internal affairs policy is a derivative of its foreign affairs counterpart, one designed to spread disinformation on the international scene.
The Policy of disinformation – strategic weapon of the Empire
Politics of “liberalization” involving an accredited opposition which for a variety of reasons is easily controllable has already a disinformative dimension.
“Reset”- The hidden invasion of the West
In addition to "Jedinoj Rossii" we have "social democracy", KPRF the Zhirinovsky’s party and a plethora of the “extraneous opposition".
Dozens of thousands of people demand “Russia without Putin"? But the same numbers declare the streets of support for the comrade Colonel.
Here, they contrast "reformists", "modernizers" and "westerners" from the Soviet State Security as opposed to the "lunatics": the "nationalist" and "crypto-fascist" Alexey Navalny or the "hardliner communist" and "leftist" Sergei Udaltsov. "Patriotic" Putin is also favorably compared to the opposition -allegedly supported from abroad, which in turn is a part of information war against the United States.
This Center has formulated Putin’s electoral program in 2000. One may therefore argue, that it serves the role of a liberal fig tree leave of the neo-Bolshevik authorities; and that such "independent Russian sources" one should treat with reservation because they are used by the Soviets to convey to the World whatever they intend to communicate.
This forecast is part of the disinformation described here - you can read there between the lines that:
Iran. The possibility of another "proxy war" in the Middle East
Playing the terrorism card, orchestrated by the so-called "Rogue states" (the Bush doctrine would not include in this group the principal players - Moscow and Beijing) is a function of Moscow’s Western front – for it anticipates the involvement of the West (led by the USA) in the "war on terror", of which the next frontline is meant to be Iran and its allies in the region (headed by Syria).
