Social "protest" in Russia ordered the West

March 20 2009

Scandal erupted during the morning plenary session of Duma. MP from the United Russia Sergei Zheleznyak accused "Socialist-Revolutionaries" Ilya Ponomarev, in collaboration with organizations involved in destabilization of the situation in Russia. And for foreign money.

According to the words AS Iron ore, in recent months in Russia have stepped up work to numerous independent non-governmental organizations that are "trying to use social protest in the crisis in order to destabilize the political situation in the country." In this case, the activity of such structures, is strongly supported by Russian politicians at the federal level. In particular, the deputy DG Ilya Ponomarev, which are also directly related to the so-called Left Front, which, however, increasingly (and unnecessarily) mention in the context of kasparovskih FMG and the "National Assembly".

But if the Left Front, as a rather young and little-known organizations have yet to understand the activities of the Institute "Collective Action" is of particular interest to the researcher.

Also on the topic: "The Just Russia found a spy"

This organization started its activities in 2004. The sources of funding, its leaders prefer not to, but, apparently, means were available. And considerable. At least in Russia, nobody has succeeded in record time to create a strong network structure of several hundred public organizations in virtually all regions of Russia. In fact, we are talking about two parallel structures: the most directly Institute "Collective Action", performing information functions, and thus creating an ICD Union Coordination Council (FBC), who organize the protests.

Head of the ICD is a citizen of France Karine Clement, who is married to a State Duma deputy Oleg Shein. The latter, incidentally, today announced that ICD therapy with all its states exists solely for his money. And even named a monthly budget of the organization - 60 thousand rubles, which Mr. Shein highlights of his parliamentary salary to the salaries of employees (and their only in Moscow, about 10 people), rent and other orgrashodami.

Speaking of expenses and revenues. Not so long ago, Karin Clement suffered an attack of unknown, after the latter decided to go to the store and buy something for dinner. According to the victim, the robber snatched her purse in which there were 27,400 rubles (total damage amounted to about 50,000 rubles). In a word, is glad for the welfare of leftist activists who intend to spend at the bakery about a thousand dollars.

Of course, it's hard to imagine if this fragile Frenchwoman, with all due respect to her organizational skills, holds the threads of control protest actions. Clement, rather, an effective manager, which supports one established mechanism in working condition. But no more. The real levers of control protest movement in Russia are in the hands of entirely different people. The sooner it turns out, the better. And for the Russian workers as well.
