Yesterday, opposition protests were held, which were organised by US-paid Alexei Navalny. They were held purposely on the same date as Russians celebrating their national day – Russia Day, on June 12th. 

The editor of the American publication The Financial Times Neil Buckley, posted this picture on his Twitter , with the caption “Most countries use anti-tank against the invaders. In Moscow, they used against their own people.” (repost from Alexei Venediktov, host of CIA funded radio station, Echo Moscow)

What the image shows is a reenactment of anti-tank 

traps during the battle of Moscow in WWII. It was especially set up for Russia Day, as a historic reenactment of the sacrifices made for the city in the past. 

A similar message was delivered to American readers by a correspondent of The New York Times, Neil MacFarquhar. “The blockade set up on Moscow’s main downtown boulevard to prevent anti-Kremlin protestors from reaching Kremlin & Red Square.”

During the protest, Russophobes, such as BILD’s Julian Ropcke, openly called for a coup to the Russian government.
