Russia and China: US Must Stop Promoting Protests in Our Countries


Both countries see deep US involvement in recent protests

Jason Ditz Posted on August 12, 2019Categories NewsTags China, Russia, State Dept

Russia and China have issued statements over the past several days calling on the US government to stop promoting protests in their respective countries, saying that America needs to stay out of other nations’ internal affairs.

While the State Department urges US citizens to avoid the “unauthorized” protests in Russia and China, they are also seen as a major facilitator for the protests in the first place. US-imposed regime change by protest is a time-honored strategy, and one both nations see at play.

Chinese officials, in particular, see the growing number of US flags appearing at Hong Kong protests as a sign of US involvement in the protests themselves. The US doesn’t comment on this, of course, but rather faults the Chinese government for not giving in to the protesters’ demands.

The same is true in Moscow, where protests aren’t as frequent, but even the suggestion of a Russian government crackdown leads to a quick US retort condemning them for “excessive force.”

1. "Both countries see deep US involvement in recent protests"

Like protesters flying the US flag, which means freedom to them?

If that is US involvement, then the verdict is GUILTY AS CHARGED

7. Tanking the US economy. China can withstand the pain since there are no elections, the US

electorate on the other hand are a fickle lot.

As our economy sits right now, wouldn't take much to tip it over.

11. The US is not promoting discontent.

Chinese communists are doing that all by themselves.
