From far east Vladivostok to Crimea to Moscow, people in Russia held rallies against west sponsored color revolutions. Rallies took place on a one year anniversary of a bloody coup in Ukraine which took lives of many police officers. US and EU politicians openly supported anti-government protests. US state department employee Victoria Nuland gave out cookies and money to protesters, as she later said, US spent about 50 billion dollars to create anti-government sentiment. US senator McCain was a frequent visitor of anti-government protests in Ukraine as well as many other politicians. On February 21st legitimate president Yanukovich and “Maidan” protesters sign an agreement where Yanokovich promised early elections and more power to opposition. However, on February 22nd armed nationalists stormed government buildings in Kiev seizing power in the country with support of US embassy and US ambassador John F. Tefft.
When southeastern parts of Ukraine – Donetsk and Lugansk – refused to recognize coup installed bloody regime, new regime in Kiev sent its military to Donetsk and Lugansk to submit those regions to their rule which sparked Ukrainian civil war that wages on to this day.
Last year, after bloody revolution in Ukraine, expert on creating unconstitutional revolutions and bloody coups John F. Tefft was transferred from Ukraine to Russia.
Many Russians concerned with foreign involvement in their country’s affairs and in fear of another west sponsored revolution took to the streets under slogan: “maidan – 1 year later. we won’t forget, we won’t forgive.” Also people carried signs such as: “we don’t need revolution, we need strong Russia” and “maidan can be cured”.
An estimated over 40,000 people took part in a rally in Moscow. Young and old marched side by side. From senior citizen organizations to bike clubs to youth organizations participated in a rally.
