Russian government alarmed at American funding

The Russian government is growing more alarmed at the level of American funding of NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in Russia. It has become such as serious problem that it strains bilateral relations between the two countries. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov revealed this recently in an interview. The funding of Russian NGOs is so high that it is quite alarming to the Russian government. The NGOs that are being financed are usually anti-government and anti-Putin.

The government is worried that all the funding will strengthen the anti-government NGOs and destabilize the country. The organizations being funded could influence revolt or revolution against the government. Since 2009, the US government has provided $160 million to Russian NGOs in the name of human rights, good government and free media. This is according to Philip Gordon, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, of the US government. The Russian government is not so blind and sees the funding as interference in the internal political affairs of their country. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin proposed tougher punishments for those who interfere in domestic Russian political affairs. Many independent observers and government critics slammed the Russian government in the most recent election. They claim that there were irregularities and violations which made the elections unfair.


Editor's Note: This is no surprise as the same thing is occurring in Hungary. It is a well-known fact that anti-Orbán organizations are being funded by foreign agents. Even left-wing politicians in Hungary are in  contact with various globalist forces. These foreign globalist agents are in the European Union and the United States.
