The Russian opposition can not play. This is already obvious. But it plays, because it seems paid. I am pleased to see how she also knows how to lose.
So, public attention (not all, of course, but some of it) was attracted to the widely publicized report by the Deputy Chairman of the PARNAS party, Illya Yashin. Where Yashin had to report to the public about how Ramzan Kadyrov is a threat to the national security of the country.
The “National Security Threat” report consisted of nine chapters on Kadyrov’s rise to power, his private army, friends and enemies, the regime in the republic, the funds entering the republic, why Kadyrov is a threat to national security, and how Chechnya became a supplier militants for the terrorist group "LIH". He was preparing, of course, in the strictest secrecy mode, as information providers were seriously afraid for their lives. And, according to Yashin, he had to personally travel to Chechnya to meet with these people there.
However, a few hours before Yashin’s press conference devoted to the presentation of the report, the text of this very report was published ... Kadyrov!
And it's not even that the secret services of Chechnya are keenly watching Yashin’s every step on the network, no. Everything is much more trivial and shameful. The report, by virtue of a “technical error,” was dumped on the Open Russia website, simply “Postcard”, owned by Misha Khodorkovsky.
It is clear that “Postcard” tried to make a good face on a bad game, saying that “We received a report under an embargo, provided we did not publish it before the presentation, but due to a technical error, the text was published ahead of time. It hung on the site for five minutes, but it seems that the resource is especially popular with Kadyrovites - they managed to download pdf ”.
Let it be to you, our dear! The report hung a little longer, and only the lazy did not download it. Moreover, in the tape News it was driven in, so all that remained was to poke the download button.
The report itself is nothing of the kind. No facts, no calculations, nothing. A set of empty things that you can dig in social networks or Wikipedia. Approximately this level of seriousness and evidence. That is zero. Honestly, I mastered only three chapters, I did not consider it necessary to spend more time. A referral pulled from the Internet, nothing more. And, of course, the general refrain in the style of "Carthage must be destroyed, Asad must go, Kadyrov must go."
The report can only be called a teacher of a rural technical school, and even for a decent bribe. In fact - referral to "C grade" with a huge stretch. And the stretch should be at least green, embedded in the middle of the text. And even better - at the beginning. So at least you can read to the middle.
In general, the abstract - sucks. But where does the real report come from, if Yashin copied all the information from the Internet? Did all his “heroic” trips to Chechnya come down to a forty-minute selfie tour in Grozny?
Yes, Yashin intrigued by the stories that his trip to Grozny was rich and “filled” with numerous meetings with local residents, and his associates called his act “heroic”.
I apologize, but how then to understand the full "green light" obtained in Chechnya by Yashin during the preparation of the "exposure"? And then where did the formidable special services look in Grozny?
And did not look anywhere. Yashin did not meet with anyone in Grozny, and nowhere, except Grozny, was not. Yes, and in Grozny, "lit up" very briefly. To avoid. Nasnimal selfie to have evidence of his presence, and this is enough.
Evil journalists were not lazy, they found the driver who drove Yashin. From the plane to the plane. And for some reason Yashin arrived not in Grozny (there, apparently, the airport does not work), but in Nazran. And from Ingushetia, I took a taxi to Chechnya.
Ruslan Khashagulgov, the driver, and told about how much time he rolled Yashin and where they were. There are a total of 4 points, they are all in Yashin’s photo on his pages. About any meetings or calls Khashagulgov could not tell. Because either of their absence, or ... To be honest, I do not particularly believe in any secret meetings of Yashin. The level of the boy is not the same.
Last year, Yashin said loudly, they say, "do not care about the bureaucrats who refused to install the Nemtsov tablet. The best memorial to Boris will be the change of this power. Let's work."
Said loudly. But, if you think so, then the bureaucrats and the authorities can sleep peacefully. And Nemtsov, too, can. Memorial to him will not. Since in order to change the existing power, it is necessary to make more serious gestures than self-tours, copy-paste from the Internet and outright lies about "meetings with the disgruntled."
I have never concealed my negative attitude towards the opposition, which is systemic, which is non-systemic, both of them are of the same field weeds. But after such a frank disgrace, this opposition in general ceases to be taken seriously. Such a procession of impotents from politics and the needy from righteousness, nothing more.
And what about Kadyrov? And nothing. We can say that in the match "Kadyrov" - "Opposition" the score is already 3: 0. And the end of the match is near.
Yes, definitely, some of Ramzan Akhmatovich's internet prikolizmy are somewhat beyond the usual framework. What does not, however, really draw conclusions that the opposition makes. That is, that Kadyrov with such attacks cannot be the leader of the republic.
And why not?
In the world stories There is more than one name for politicians who could afford more than others. Khrushchev. Chernomyrdin. Mccain Berlusconi. Zhirinovsky. Yes, they have been and are extra-original to one degree or another. Why Kadyrov can not become another one of?
Fear. Before convulsions, before the trembling in the knives, our system and non-system oppositionists of this Kadyrov are afraid. But it is necessary to do something, for it is ordered from where the orders come from. So much for the result.
Yes, Kadyrov’s authority to head the Chechen Republic expires in April of this year. However, it’s not Yashin, Navalny or Khodorkovsky who will decide whether or not Ramzan Akhmetovich will continue to lead Chechnya. And not even in the Kremlin. Although there yes, they can say their weighty word.
But first of all, it is Chechnya who should judge the fitness and danger of Kadyrov. But not in Novosibirsk, on orders from London.
Something like that, I think.
