Russie et “révolution de couleur”

Un rassemblement dit “Conseil antifasciste et anti-Maidan” récemment formé en Russie (voir plus loin, dans les citations) a communiqué des informations concernant des contacts de groupes et individus étrangers pour développer un programme activiste principalement avec le parti Iabloko, qui se présente depuis sa fondation comme un parti libéral typiquement de tendance occidentaliste. Il s’agit d’actions prévues essentiellement le 21 septembre et liées aux élections du 14 septembre ; les informations données par le “Conseil anti-Maidan” concerne l’aspect logistique et organisationnel (aide apportée à Iabloko de la part des habituels centres et agences étrangères, conditions de recrutement de “pigistes” pour participer aux manifestations, etc.)

Il existe certainement en Russie une crainte générale, de la part du gouvernement et de ses diverses agences, aussi bien que de la part de diverses organisations politiques, d’une action générale de déstabilisation de la Russie du type “révolution de couleur”. Les précisions données par le “Conseil anti-Maidan” l’ont été au quotidien Izvestia. Elles sont reprises ce 9 septembre 2014 par Russia Today.

«The head of the Anti-Fascist anti-Maidan council, Evgeny Shabayev has told the popular mass circulation daily Izvestia that his group possessed information about Ukrainian and Georgian citizens who played major roles in preparations to the violent events leading to displacement of governments and dissolution of parliaments in these countries – the so-called ‘color revolutions’. Now these people arrive in Russia and start talks with representatives of the pro-democracy opposition party Yabloko and other opposition groups in order to prepare and launch a similar regime change in Russia, the activist claimed.

»According to Shabayev, at present stage Yabloko together with members of the Solidarity group are holding a string of single-person protests. Over 1,000 people have been hired to participate in them and each signed a contract to picket for 15 days for a $2,500 fee. The total budget of the event amounts to over 90 million rubles (about $2.4 million) and it will end with a massive rally on September 21. The activist noted that the timing of protests is tied with the approaching national voting day, which falls on September 14. He said that the most intense and numerous protests will take place in major cities like Moscow and St. Petersburg (Moscow is holding elections to the city legislature and St. Petersburg is holding its mayoral poll).

»Shabayev also said that it was obvious for him that the whole scenario is backed by the US Department of State as the United States is interested in changing the political system in Russia, as already happened in Georgia, Ukraine, Libya and other countries where the ‘color revolutions’ had succeeded. Boris Nemtsov of the opposition party Parnas (People’s Freedom Party) has confirmed that a major rally called the March of Peace was scheduled for September 21 and that it was organized together with Yabloko.

»The Yabloko party has strongly denied receiving funds from any foreign state as well as organizing any protests. However, a source in the Moscow City Hall has told Izvestia that the pickets in the city center had been organized by Yabloko and the participants were protesting for fees.

»The Anti-Maidan Council was formed in August this year by veterans of the Russian military and special forces together with rights activists and representatives of Orthodox Christian community. The main goal of the group was announced as thwarting attempts to forcefully change the political system in Russia by informing citizens of the methods of Western propaganda. The council also plans to organize own rallies and events in order to promote the interests of the Russian state and prevent ethnic tensions in the nation’s regions.
